    According to critics these are the six Best Actress Oscar winners of all time. Which one you think gives the best performance in cinematic history?

    01. Meryl Streep, Sophie’s Choice
    02. Vivien Leigh, A streetcar named desire
    03. Elizabeth Taylor, Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?
    04. Sofia Loren, Two Women
    05. Marion Cotillard, La vie en rose
    06. Anna Magnani, The Rose Tattoo
    07. Holly Hunter, The Piano
    08. Katharine Hepburn, The Lion in Winter
    09. Charlize Theron, Monster
    10. Faye Dunaway, Network

    I’m surprised I haven’t included Bette, but she would be 1 if she had won for All about Eve.

    By “critics,” do you mean you?

    Cuz I doubt many critics would consider most of the best ever winners being from 2000+, and all of them after 1980…

    Vivien Leigh pretty much gives everyone a run for their money. (No, not in A Streetcar Named Desire, silly thing!)

    I do like your list though. You have cherry-picked some amazing recent winners there. From that list, I have to go with Swank, but the choice was not easy.

    I cannot take this poll seriously without Vivien Leigh’s two performances and many other worthy mentions like Jodie Foster, Kathy Bates or Elizabeth Taylor. Sorry.

    Without Leigh, this list is inadequate. Blanchett is great, but not one of THE greats here. Nor do I think Foster and especially Bates belong here.

    The greatest female performance is Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind IMHO

    Renee Falconetti will be surprised.

    Here is the thread I did a while ago.

    Bette Davis in “All About Eve” is also a huge snub from this poll.

    Bette Davis in All about Eve is probably the best female performance ever.

    But Bette Davis in All About Eve didn’t win so flawed as this poll is she doesn’t qualify.

    It’s too hard to compare them all.

    1930s: Vivien Leigh, “Gone with the Wind”
    1940s: Olivia de Havilland, “The Heiress”
    1950s: Vivien Leigh, “A Streetcar Named Desire”
    1960s: Elizabeth Taylor, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”
    1970s: Jane Fonda, “Klute”
    1980s: Meryl Streep, “Sophie’s Choice”
    1990s: Jodie Foster, “Silence of the Lambs”
    2000s: Charlize Theron, “Monster”
    2010s: Cate Blanchett, “Blue Jasmine”

    I guess I’d go with 1. Streep, 2. Leigh (1st), 3. Blanchett, 4. Taylor, 5. Theron, if I absolutely had to.
