The star of the TV show “Modern Family”, Sofía Vergara, was the highest paid actress in 2020, outperforming its rivals in the movie world as the pandemic slashed Hollywood box office revenue, according to Forbes magazine’s annual ranking released Friday.

With 43 million dollars pocketed in the last 12 months, Sofía Vergara – in second place last year – was ahead on the podium of Angelina Jolie (35 million) and the Israeli Gal gadot (31 million).

Sofía Vergara makes $ 500,000 per episode of “Modern Family” and is now on the jury for “America’s Got Talent,” which guarantees her “at least $ 10 million per season,” not counting her various advertising contracts, according to Forbes.

The coronavirus pandemic stopped most of the major Hollywood productions since the spring, which has had a serious impact on the income of the stars, who in addition to their fees, generally receive bonuses proportional to the number of entries.

The closure of movie theaters due to covid-19 and the lack of new films allowed actors of the small screen will gain prominence, says Forbes. In addition to Vergara, there is Ellen Pompeo (“Grey’s Anatomy”; 8th place with 19 million) and Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale: The Scarlet Handmaiden”, in 9th place with 16 million).

The American star Viola Davis made her Top 10 appearance for the first time (10th place, 15.5 million) with his lead role in the crime series “Murder,” which has been running on ABC since 2014, and the series “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” which will soon be aired on Netflix.

Apart from Angelina Jolie and Emily Blunt (in 6th place with 22.5 million), all the Top 10 actresses received the majority of their income from television or video, including the renowned movie star Meryl streep (5th place with 24 million).

In total, the world’s ten highest-paid actresses in 2020 earned $ 254 million (June 2019 to June 2020), 20% less than the previous rolling year.

For comparison, the ten highest paid actors during the same period earned more than double, almost 550 million dollars. Number one, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, posted revenue of $ 87.5 million, according to the men’s ranking released by Forbes last month.
