Only actress ever to be nominated for the best actress Emmy for three different shows. Yeah, she's horrible.

186Margot Kidder
187Fay Wray
188Christina Ricci

Sexy, creepy, mean, nice, goth, normal, she can play it all. I would equate her in many ways to Johnny Depp in that for many many years he was very underrated, yet always played his roles so perfectly. Golden Globe winner yetalways passed up for an academy nomination she is one of th actresses i truly enjoy watching on screen.

I love how this girl can be the "good girl" one minute, then the quirky, weird yet lovable goth girl, then a sexy, steamy babe the next. I also admire the fact she's one of the few child stars who didn't go all crazy with drugs and alcohol despite living in New Jersey. Not to mention the fact she got stalked by Gerard Way, I find that both adorable and creepy at the same time.

She is insane pure talent through and through. Just gets better with time and don't know why she's so low on the list. - babydoll

Love her off beat roles.

192Olivia de HavillandOlivia Mary de Havilland is a British-American actress whose career spanned from 1935 to 1988. She appeared in forty-nine feature films, and was one of the leading movie stars during the golden age of Classical Hollywood.

Should be much higher on the list of great actresses--a truly legenday actress ever since her early film roles in GONE WITH THE WIND and THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and then her great dramatic roles during her free-lance years after getting out of her Warner contract. Elegant lady.

So often overlooked but always perfect in supporting or leading roles. And always lovely, as well!

193Penelope Cruz

They say excellence should be rewarded. Just as well Penelope Cruz should be in the top 10 not because there are horrible actresses like emma watson or kirsten stewart just because she is even better than nicole kidman or angelina jolie.

She, amazing in bandidas an awesome role and done it perfectly

She must have at least been on the list. She is awesome!

195Neve CampbellNeve Adrianne Campbell is a Canadian actress. She is best known for her role as Sidney Prescott in the horror film series Scream.

Probably should have been a biggest star than she is at the moment. But I think she stands up to everyone she works with and easily eclipses many of the one oscar names mentioned above. Time will come, I'm sure. - Johnnyrp666

Maybe she's moved on, has a family, who knows, but she is wonderful and has star won't ever diminish. Lovely and talented. - babydoll

Don't understand why, but her movies after her more famous period are becoming better and better. So is her acting abilitties too.
Why isn't she more famous now than she used to be? Is it a lack of publicity? Not enough Promotion? She really deserves to be in the spotlights again. Too talented to be ignored!

196Ellen Page

Maybe not the best actress of the world but she deserves at least a higher rank than this. Many actresses above her on this list aren't talented as she.

Where is she on the list? Ellen is a phenomenal actress and she has the best sense of humour! - hhutc9

Hard Candy, Absolutely Amazing!

198Mariah CareyMariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress . She won 5 Grammys, got her documentary movie "Glitter" and also one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry . more.

Her acting is as good as Britney spears singin...sorry

199Jessica Biel

I watch her movies just to see her hot body. Her acting skills are ok but she's not a top 5 actress, that's for sure.

200Saoirse Ronan

Why is she so far down on the list? Considering the fact that at the age of 13 she was Nominated for an Oscar for her work in Atonement. Or that Peter Jackson casted her in The Lovely Bones with only seeing her audition no meeting or anything just one audition tape she send in. Or the fact that she was nominated for an Oscar again at 21 this year 2016 for her work in Brooklyn? She is one of the best actresses of her age and for her to be so down on the list proves that this list isn't as accurate as it should be.

She's so pretty, bet she will be a really big name in the future

She's great. Does Ireland proud -
