LOS ANGELES ( TheStreet) -- If you want an Oscar, acting, singing or some combination of both may get you one. If you want to be the person who pays Oscar winners' salaries, it requires a bit more business savvy.Last year, Johnny Depp was the industry's highest-paid actor, with $75 million, while last year's Best Actress winner, Sandra Bullock, took home $56 million. That's nice but, to put those salaries in perspective, George Lucas made almost 10 times Bullock's paycheck last year by doing nothing. William Shatner's dot-com shares alone may have eclipsed Johnny Depp's take.
