Cate is really an amazing actress, but I must say that her performance in Blue Jasmine is beyond perfection!
And I also loved Cate in Notes on a Scandal and Carol!
She's definitely the best for me, so I believe she should be higher in this list!

She received Oscar nominations for best leading AND supporting actress…in the same year.

Pretty, unaffected, girl next door. Personality is always optimistic, fun-nothing is a problem.

11Meryl StreepMary Louise "Meryl" Streep is an American actress. Cited in the media as the "best actress of her generation", Streep is particularly known for her versatility in her roles, transformation into the characters she plays, and her accent adaptation.

Should be in the top 3, but when I see the first two actresses of this list I think she should be number one. VOTE FOR HER!

16Naomi WattsNaomi Ellen Watts is a British actress. She made her screen debut in the Australian drama film For Love Alone and then appeared in the Australian television series Hey Dad..!

Come on! Don't tell me that Angela Jolie and Mila Kunis who are the 2 first actresses on this list are better than Naomi Watts? This is not very convincing. I mean, we're talking about talent in acting! Not in popularity. Lots of actresses above Naomi Watts in this list are too overrated anyway.
