This is where Streep defeats everyone else by default, she’s the most nominated person ever in Academy history for performance.June 12, 2013 at 9:03 am #545017
5. Bergman (for Autumn Sonata alone!)
Streep vs. Hepburn, Artist vs. StarJune 12, 2013 at 9:57 am #545018
I went ahead and voted Bette Davis…although Meryl Streep could have just as easily gotten my click. Jane Fonda is up there too. Everyone is deserving of consideration except Garson.

I figured Streep would win this easily so I went with Katharine Hepburn. Her longevity is unmatched. Although Meryl will get there eventually.June 12, 2013 at 2:38 pm #545020
Don’t forget about Davis’s “Mr. Skeffington”!June 13, 2013 at 1:47 pm #545021
1. Bette Davis
2. Meryl Streep
3. Ingrid Bergman
4. Katharine Hepburn
5. Geraldine Page
6. Jane Fonda
7. Greer GarsonJune 14, 2013 at 4:57 am #545022
Will Garson come anything but last from anyone.
Her success is baffling.June 14, 2013 at 5:06 am #545023
Don’t forget about Davis’s “Mr. Skeffington”!June 16, 2013 at 12:56 pm #545024
1. Davis – the best actress of all time along with Anne Bancroft, should have won for All About Eve as well
2. Streep – best actress of the modern day, up there on the list of best of all time, more recently her filmography (based on quality of the films) have been weak though
3. Hepburn – terrific filmography, great actress who would have won for The African Queen in any other year
4. Page – not many remarkable films but many remarkable performances, always tried to challenge herself resulting in terrific, rangeful work
5. Bergman – made a few duds but her good movies were very, very good
6. Fonda – amazing career and talent as an actress but her politics overtook her in the late 70’s
7. Garson – ha.
