Sofia Vergara’s continues her dominance of the television industry as Forbes has named her the world’s top-paid TV actress — a distinction she’s now earned for five straight years. Vergara, who stars as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC’s Modern Family, raked in $43 million between in the period between June 2015 and June 2016. That figure is up almost $15 million from her earnings the previous year. The big bump in earnings over the year before, interestingly, wasn’t due to a salary increase from ABC.

In fact, her earnings ballooned so much that she outpaced this year’s runner up, whom she tied with on the Forbes list last year, by nearly $20 million.
