Google restructured itself last year under an umbrella company called Alphabet, with Pichai named CEO of the largest unit, the one housing the company's biggest businesses like search, Android and YouTube. Pichai, a trusted lieutenant to founder and Alphabet CEO Larry Page, was the company's product czar, handling many of its most meaningful businesses like search, maps and Android.

On the flip side, Eric Schmidt, Google's CEO for a decade until 2011 who now serves as Alphabet's chairman, saw a giant drop in his compensation. Schmidt's total pay fell to $8 million from $108.7 million a year earlier, again fundamentally because of changes in stock awards. He received no stock-based compensation last year after awards worth $100 million in 2014.

Tuesday's filing indicated Page and cofounder Sergey Brin continued to receive a $1 salary with no stock awards or bonuses in 2015, a practice they've held for years.
