Kaley Cuoco: Now
As Penny on The Big Bang Theory, Cuoco has won one Critics' Choice Award and been nominated for multiple People's Choice and Teen Choice Awards. (Not to mention the many accolades given to the cast and crew as a whole.) According to Deadline, she earns $350,000 per episode -- and is looking to top that if the show is renewed for an eighth season next year.
