    I’m guessing this means for their entire careers and not just for the work they’ve done since hitting 65???

    Ellen Burstyn is my choice.

    BTW, Julie Christie is probably mad at you for making her 6 years older than she is 🙂

    Oops, my bad 😛

    And yeah, I meant the entire career. If we were going just by post-65 carreer, then poor Julie, she’d only have voice work and The Princess Diaries to compete against Burstyn’s Requiem, Christie’s Away From Her; Dench’s Notes, Glenn Close’s Damages; Lansbury’s Jessica Fletcher, Mirren’s Hitchcock, Redgraves’ Volumnia or Smith’s Dowager Countess. It wouldn’t be a fair fight. She’d only have a shot against Fonda actually

    I was all set to vote for Dench until I saw Lansbury’s name. That woman is magic.

    Copy that, I thought that’s what you meant…but wanted to make sure.

    A few award adjustments:

    Andrews actually has 9 emmy nominations (1 of those is daytime).
    Fonda has 2 tony nominations.
    Burstyn also has 1 daytime emmy nomination in addition to her 6 primetime noms.
    Christie has never been nominated for a tony.

    If you would like to include Grammy stats:  Andrews 1 win out of 4 nominations (although 3 were musical and only 1 spoken word I think they would all fall under acting.) Burstyn, Redgrave and Fonda each have 1 spoken word nom. Close has 3 spoken word noms.

    I love Julie Christie.  What a sublime actress, and a chameleon too!  I don’t think she has any Emmy nominations, but she has the BAFTA fellowship.  You forgot a few of her films, including Afterglow, Heaven Can Wait, and the wonderful Altman movie McCabe & Mrs. Miller, featuring a great Christie performance.  Unlike the majority of these ladies, Christie was a star when she was young.  She is ravishing in Fahrenheit 451 and Dr. Zhivago.  But the acting talent was there too, her characters unforgettable, and she seared across the screen, with a presence few actresses come close to.  Some of these other ladies may have found success in other mediums, like the stage or television, but Christie’s domain was mostly always film.  She had the opportunity to be in Chinatown and The Godfather (I think there are few others too that she turned down), but she remained quite elusive and hard to pin down.  It was great to see her be nominated for Away From Her, and she only lost since the Oscar game repulsed her, which is a shame.  This is a tremendous and stunning actress, underrated in the Internet age because of her lack of visibility, but whom Al Pacino called “the most poetic of all actresses.”

    Christie is one of my favorites. I had her perf for Darling (Far From the Madding Crowd, McCabe and Mrs Miller) in my Favorite Perfs by an Actress thread.

    Ugh I love my dames, so this was incredibly difficult to schoose. I always have and always will love Dame Maggie Smith (She gets bonus points for her work in Harry Potter) so I chose her. Judi, Angela, Ellen, Julie Andrews, and Jane Fonda remain as my favorites as well.

    We can now add Jessica Lange to the bunch since she turned 65 in April, or would she have to wait another year to be over 65?

    She’s a fantastic actress and her work in The Newsroom is a complete masterclass.

    I have a bias that will never die thus, Judi Dench is my choice.
