Forbes has just released its annual Celebrity 100 list, ranking the most powerful from among the entertainment famous, and to be honest ... trying to sort it out makes our heads hurt.

The magazine's formula for figuring out which actors, TV personalities, athletes, authors, etc., are on top is so complicated—factoring in earnings, media visibility and even a social media ranking—that we doubt we'll ever be able to fully understand the results.

But one thing we do know is that even though no one, not even James Cameron, was deemed as important as the number-one celeb on the list—Oprah Winfrey, of course—sci-fi did make its presence known.

Here's how we did:

3. James Cameron 9. Johnny Depp 18. Angelina Jolie 22. Steven Spielberg 32. Michael Bay 42. George Lucas 47. Jerry Bruckheimer 50. Robert Pattinson 59. Stephenie Meyer 66. Kristen Stewart 69. Stephen King 73. Robert Downey Jr. 82. Daniel Radcliffe 99. Jennifer Love Hewitt

What do you think? Are these the right celebrities in the right order? If not, who's missing?
