    So I did a bit of research and found that no one has started a thread on this topic yet. Now that I’ve seen every single Oscar winner for Best Actress from the 1960s, here’s how I rank them:

    1. Elizabeth Taylor-Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
    2. Anne Bancroft-The Miracle Worker
    3. Barbra Streisand-Funny Girl
    4. Katharine Hepburn-The Lion in Winter
    5. Sophia Loren-Two Women
    6. Patricia Neal-Hud
    7. Katharine Hepburn-Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
    8. Julie Christie-Darling
    9. Julie Andrews-Mary Poppins
    10. Maggie Smith-The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
    11. Elizabeth Taylor-Butterfield 8

    So what’s your ranking? Even if you haven’t seen all eleven of these winners, feel free to rank the ones you have actually seen.

    Elizabeth Taylor will be the bookends, but aside from her and Hepburn’s 67 win, this decade was FANTASTIC for Actress winners. Even for the people I wouldn’t have voted for are pretty great in their own right.

    #1-Taylor, WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
    #2-Hepburn, LION IN WINTER
    #3-Smith
    #4-Loren
    #5-Bancroft (fantastic win but I would’ve given it to Hepburn over her)
    #6-Streisand (Hepburn deserved it alone)
    #7-Christie
    #8-Neal
    #9-Andrews (Bancroft, probably)
    #10-Hepburn, GUESS (Evans)
    #11-Taylor, BUTTERFIELD 8 (definitely MacLaine)

    This is probably the best decade for actress wins (though the 80’s are pretty close behind).

    I’d say:

    1. Taylor – Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
    2. Streisand – Funny Girl
    3. Hepburn – The Lion in Winter
    4. Bancroft – The Miracle Worker
    5. Smith – The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
    6. Hepburn – Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
    7. Christie – Darling
    8. Loren – Two Women
    9. Andrews – Mary Poppins
    10. Taylor – Butterfield 8

    Haven’t seen Hud yet.

    Really the top 8 are all brilliant winners, especially the first 4

    1. Taylor – Wolf

    2. Hepburn – Lion in winter (her best win)

    3. Smith – Jean Brodie

    4. Bancroft – Miracle Worker

    5. Streisand – Funny Girl

    6. Loren – Two Women

    7. Patricia Neal – HUD ( basically supporting role )

    8. Andrews – Mary poppins

    9. Hepburn – Dinner

    10. Julie Christie –  Darling (only reason that I rank her so low it’s because I don’t remember movie much. So that should say something)

    11. Taylor – Butterfly 8
