OUT has handed the crown to talk-show host Ellen Degeneres, who sits atop its Power 50 List for the year.

"Everybody loves Ellen, and that's one of the reasons she's regained the top spot," the magazine says of the beloved talk-show host.

"In March, The Ellen DeGeneres Show shattered its own 10-year ratings record in the episode that immediately followed her Academy Awards hosting gig, which also gave the awards its best ratings since 2004. And her star-studded Oscars selfie almost shut down Twitter when the pic became the most retweeted ever."

Also notable on the list:
-Grammy-winning singer Frank Ocean (No. 42), who came out as bisexual on his blog last year
-Fashion designer Michael Kors (No. 12)
-Good Morning America's Robin Roberts (No. 10), who is the first woman of color to crack the top 10.
-Prospective NFL player Michael Sam (No. 9)
-Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page (No. 29), who came out on Valentine's Day
-MSNBC personality Rachel Maddow (No. 3)
