While wages remain stagnant for most Americans, the same isn't true for America's 10 highest paid CEOs.

A new survey shows it was a record year for folks like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. The social media king took home a $2.27 billion in total compensation last year.

Energy executive Richard Kinder earned $1.16 billion. It's the first time that two CEOs have ever earned more than $1 billion in a year.

Apple chairman Tim Cook is the fifth highest paid CEO, at more than $143.8 million.
