    I consider the Best Actress Lineup in 2006 as the greatest this century (Easily).

    Penelope Cruz, Volver
    Judi Dench, Notes On A Scandal
    Helen Mirren, The Queen
    Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada
    Kate Winslet, Little Children

    All deserved to WIN.

    Odds that year were: (according to a site)

    (1) Helen Mirren (Odds: 1/25)
    (2) Kate Winslet (Odds: 7/1)
    (3) Meryl Streep (Odds: 15/1)
    (4) Judi Dench (Odds: 18/1)
    (5) Penelope Cruz (Odds: 20/1)

    I was surprised Winslet had better Odds than Streep but that was likely because she was in the strongest picture contender of the nominees (except Mirren) and her overdue narrative had started emerging.
