Ed Asner – $10 Million
Even at 90 years old, Ed Asner had shown no signs of slowing down. Asner’s illustrious and well-known career began in the 1950s, which meant he had worked hard for nearly 70 years! His breakthrough came while playing the eponymous character, Lou Grant, on the Lou Grant Show. That show was so popular that it produced the Mary Tyler Moore Show, in which Asner appeared.
He had 21 Emmy nominations total, with 17 Primetime Emmys and four Daytime Emmys. He took home seven awards in primetime. He was also the only actor to win an award, both in comedy and primetime drama, for “Lou Grant.”
