Someone you might not expect on Forbes' list of Top-Earning Celebrities in 2010 is Judge Judy, who rounded out the top 20. But, Judy's $45 million income is only half of what Beyonce earned in 2010. The 'Halo' singer came in at No. 9 after earning $87 million.

Beyonce was the only music industry professional to crack the list's top 10. Oprah Winfrey, who is in the final season of her daytime talk show after 25 seasons and 4,400 episodes, earned the No.1 spot with a 2010 income of $315 million. Apart from golf pro Tiger Woods, who earned $105 million and the No. 5 spot, the rest of the top 10 was made up of Hollywood directors that included James Cameron, Tyler Perry, Michael Bay, Jerry Bruckheimer, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.

While Beyonce's husband Jay-Z was crowned Forbes' Hip-Hop Cash King earlier this year, the only other musicians to make the elite 20 were all women: Britney Spears ($64 million), Lady Gaga ($62 million), Madonna ($58 million) Miley Cyrus ($48 million) and Taylor Swift ($45 million).
