Blake Griffin Breaks Into Hollywood With Mortal Media | Forbes

Published

on

Since the L.A. Clippers drafted him with the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft, Blake Griffin has won the Slam Dunk Contest, become Rookie of the Year and made the All-Star team five times.

The money has followed. Last year he scored a five-year, $171 million contract extension. That deal, plus sponsorships with the likes of Red Bull and Nike’s Jordan brand, has made him one of the world’s highest-paid celebrities. In all, Griffin, who now plays for the Detroit Pistons, pulled in $35.5 million in 2018.

Now he’s putting those dollars to work off the court with his Hollywood production company, Mortal Media. “We want to get into film, TV, digital, and lay the foundation for a company that we can run once we’re done with our current careers.” The company has sold eight movie and television projects, five of which are in active development, most notably reboots of White Men Can’t Jump and Disney’s The Rocketeer.

How Oprah Made Her $2.6 Billion Dollar Fortune | Forbes

Published

on

By

Oprah Winfrey returned to the Forbes list of top-earning celebrities in 2020 landing at No. 91 with estimated earnings of $37 million before taxes and fees, thanks mostly to a lucrative Apple TV+ deal.

Winfrey’s return to the small screen landed her back on the Celebrity 100, which tracks annual earnings for performers, athletes and other front-of-the-camera stars. The nine-figure deal with Apple—the actual number has never been revealed—put her back in the mix as a performer and brought her an estimated $10 million this year, with a much larger payout coming later in the deal. The rest of her earnings are mostly made up of profits from television network OWN—she owns a 25% stake—payments from WW WW (formerly Weight Watchers) and her deal with Hearst to produce O, The Oprah Magazine. Winfrey has a net worth of $2.6 billion.
