    If you type into Google  “Greatest Actresses of All Time” (exactly as it’s written and spelled out like that), these are the results for the top 15:

    Greatest Actresses of All Time:

    1. Meryl Streep

    2. Katherine Hepburn

    3. Bette Davis

    4. Audrey Hepburn

    5. Elisabeth Taylor

    6. Ingrid Bergman

    7. Jodie Foster

    8. Julianne Moore

    9. Cate Blanchett

    10.Kate Winslet

    11.Grace Kelly

    12.Nicole Kidman

    13.Marilyn Monroe

    14.Helen Mirren

    15.Judi Dench

    (Thoughts?? I’m only surprised about Foster and Moore ahead of Blanchett and Monroe making the top 15, but aside from that, it seems pretty legit and accurate).

    Isabelle Huppert’s performance in The Piano Teacher, and Charlotte Rampling’s heartbreaking final shot in 45 Years should be more than enough to earn them spot in this list.

    The order in which the actresses come up when you search “greatest actresses of all time” on Google isn’t exactly a ranking; it’s an itemized list constructed from all general sources across the Internet. Nevertheless, I’m sure Meryl Streep, for instance, comes up first because she’s widely considered to be the greatest actress of all time and then other actresses follow underneath (just not necessarily from greatest to least greatest, it’s purely because those actresses are the ones who appear on many pages across the web, having something to do with a general listing of actresses who are considered the greatest of all time or have the reputation of being one of the greatest actresses of all time, e.g. Cate Blanchett). I hope I don’t come off as pedantic, I just want to preface that the list isn’t based on superiority.

    I digress: from just looking at the top 15, I’d say they’re all deserving of appearing on the list.

    Viola Davis and Halle Berry come up later down the list, but yes, it’s rather disheartening that the list disproportionately lacks women of color.

    It’s not a bad list of mostly English-speaking actresses, though even then there’s a few names there I’d switch out for actresses like Joan Crawford, Deborah Kerr, Vivien Leigh, Gena Rowlands, Rosalind Russell, Kim Stanley, Tilda Swinton, Joanne Woodward, among others.

    Some of my favorite international actresses:
    Isabelle Adjani
    Bibi Andersson
    Marlene Dietrich
    Setsuko Hara
    Isabelle Huppert
    Gong Li
    Anna Magnani
    Giulieta Masina
    Jeanne Moreau
    Madhabi Mukherjee
    Nargis
    Hanna Schygulla
    Kinuyo Tanaka
    Liv Ullman

    Simply because women of color haven’t gotten the same opportunities as those names on the list. It’s hard to compare Viola Davis’ four or five significant movie roles to Meryl Streep’s filmography and we really shouldn’t. ‘Greatest’ is really a strong word and I don’t think that there is an absolute consensus in this matter.

    For example I find Meryl’s legacy legendary, but do I think she’s among the Top 3 actresses of all time? Not necessarily.

    That being said, yes, I think Swinton, Huppert, Gong Li and names such as Cicely Tyson and Whoopi Goldberg would be deserving here.

    Tyler Perry didn’t make the list?

    her transformative performance as Madea in countless movies are for the ages. She’s too great for that list.
