    Ellen DeGeneres is once again the most powerful gay celebrity in America!

    The 56-year-old talk show host and comedian has nabbed the No. 1 spot on Out magazine's 2014 Power List, their annual ranking of the most influential LGBT voices in American culture

    "Everybody loves Ellen, and that's one of the reasons she's regained the top spot," Out writes on their site. "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."

    Last year's list-topper, Apple CEO Tim Cook, came in second this year.

    Ellen Page makes her debut on the Power List at 29 after coming out in February while Rachel Maddow nabbed third, Neil Patrick Harris seventh, Andy Cohen eighth, Robin Roberts 10th, Anderson Cooper 14th and Jane Lynch 20th.

    Other notable gays and lesbians on the list include Ryan Murphy (6), Suze Orman (35), Tom Ford (37), Marc Jacobs (39) and RuPaul (49).
