61 Alexis Thorpe

Played only two years in " Days of our lives " and after that she did almost nothing. Also everybody knows that actors and actresses for " soap's " are not concidered as " best actors / actresses ". Too overrated to be so ranked high on this list if you ask me.

And that makes her better than Judy Garland and Ingrid Bergman?

Any of the four people ranked immediately below her could act circles around her.

Plays Cassie DiMera in "Days of our Lives".

62 Helen Mirren Helen Mirren Dame Helen Lydia Mirren, is an English actor. Mirren began her acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1967, and is one of the few performers who have achieved the Triple Crown of Acting, having won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2007, after two previous nominations, for her performance ...read more.

She has done it all for comedy to drama from soft porn to biopic no other actress have the ability to do it all at this level a number in the top ten at least

from caligola , the cook the thief prime suspect and now the queen wow a dame and a half

Very biased US of A list, Sandra Bollcks, please! Helen is a fantastic actress and very versatile.

So awesome inspires me to be funny

64 Rachel Weisz Rachel Weisz Rachel Hannah Weisz is an English film and theatre actress as well as a former fashion model who holds both British and American citizenship.

great and talent actress, who makes all her movies classic and beautyful. i have seen her movies and she shines in evry of them.

She was luminous in the constant gardener, my heart actually hurt as the story unfolded. Great fun in the mummy to name just 2 well known roles.

She should be much higher on this list.

65 Judy Garland Judy Garland Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm (June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) was an American singer, actress, and vaudevillian. The American Film Institute named her 8th greatest female star of classic American cinema. She's also the mother of actress and singer Liza Minnelli.

Staring in one of the most known films ever, "The Wizard of Oz", this Academy Award winning actress took the industry by storm and will forever be known for her performances.

She was phenomenal. She should be rated in the top 5.

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW! I cry every time. Judy you are amazing and are one of the most talented individuals, not only when you were younger but though your whole life. YOU ARE AMAZING and NOT just in "The Wizard of Oz" but in your later and smaller movies too. I especially love all you movies with Rooney

Like many of her contemperaries,Judy Garland was exploited and subjugated by the film studios,that pumped her full of drugs,even as a child. Downers made sure she slept and amphetamines kept her smiling in front of the cameras. She became hooked and alcohol abuse soon followed. Yet,troughout it all,she made powerful emotional music. Judy Garland sang from her heart. And acting from her heart and soul. A top actress that should be among the 3 best actresses.

66 Chloe Moretz Chloe Moretz Chloë Grace Moretz is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2004 at the age of seven, and her first award nomination came the following year for The Amityville Horror.

Chloe is only still a teenager, but she is exceptionally talented and experienced in acting and movement.
She is one of the only teen actors I truly respect as a professional in her field.
She is much wiser than her years, and she knows how to convincingly portray genuine emotions, how to dance and move her strong, coordinated body in order to easily handle her own stunts. Impressive.
Chloe is a fun, personable and independent hard-worker with an extremely bright future ahead of her.
She will undoubtedly go very far in whatever she chooses to do, but acting and performing are what she was born and trained to do best.
Chloe Grace Moretz is an extraordinarily unique talent. She will only continue to improve her skills and to impress the world.
I have no doubt that she will be continuously nominated for many awards and be able to snag a bunch along the way.

Most beautiful face in Hollywood. Stunning eyes that smile. Great actress. I'm in love.

Amazing actress! Incredibly talented!

I love her so much!

68 Lucille Ball Lucille Ball

Started in serious movies ( " Stage door ", a drama from 1937 where she's next to Katharine Hepburn ), later on in film Noire ( " The dark corner " with an amazing performance ) and so many other films before she moved into comedy. She's best known by many for that genre but the fact is that this actress was very diverse in all kinda of moviegenres that there's no question about it to consider her as one of the best actresses and icon of all time.

Lucy is definitely the best actress of all time. She shaped the sitcom in the 1950's and now, 60 years afterwards she is still recognised as a great actress, that's got to count for something. Has anybody who voted for people like Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus ever seen any of Lucille's sitcoms, she is a pure comedy genius. She made sure everything was perfect and very rarely had to do retakes. Go LUCY!

She's below Taylor Swift, who number one, is a terrible singer, and number two, I've never seen her in any movie. Lucille Ball is legendary.

Greatest comedy actress of all time.

69 Julianne Moore Julianne Moore

she should be in the top ten. she is fantastic! you can feel exactly what she is feeling when she is acting.

Any list without Julianne Moore in the top 5 is a joke. Look at the range of material she does extremely well and it's not arguable.

Versatile and gorgeous-she has tackled some really challenging roles and delivered gut-wrenching performances. She should be right there with Streep and Blanchett.

Yeah she's the best actress ever.

70 Sissy Spacek

The minute she comes on the screen I begin to relax because I know I am going to see a spectacular performance. An astounding actress.

Maybe not the best looking actress of the world ( nevertheless I think she's attractive ) but certainly one of the best actresses of the world. Gives always convincing top performances. And that sweet Southern accent and voice of hers is a delight to hear. Needs to move up pronto on this list!

Spacek brings credibility to any scene she inhabits. Her timing, her vision, her vocal range, everything brings dimension and believability to her character and the story. I wish I could vote her into the top 10.

She was so amazing as Loretta Lynn, and was great in "The Help" too.

71 Gena Rowlands

She easily surpasses many of those placed above her in this list - whereas many of them can't she can act!

Good to see her moving up the list. She and James Garner were magical in the Notebook.

72 Whoopi Goldberg Whoopi Goldberg Caryn Elaine Johnson, known professionally by her stage name Whoopi Goldberg, is an American actress, comedian, and television host.

There were about five Whoopi Goldberg senior quotes in my yearbook this year... and only 50 people in the senior grade! Understandably. Whoopi not only has a fabulous name but is a fabulous actress. I am so happy that someone like Whoopi can be a face for the black community so that many young black people will want to become actors and actresses. Thank you so much for inspiring people with your talent.

An Academy Award winning actress who has dominated since she came out. She is the only African American actress to have had multiple Oscar nominations.

73 Melissa McCarthy Melissa McCarthy

She makes me laugh and smile. She is also very pretty and talented.

She is hilarious. Especially in the Heat with Sandra Bullock - Jonerman

All these people are writing entire biographies on here so I'm just gonna keep it simple.
She is the queen of comedy in my opinion

76 Barbra Streisand Barbra Streisand Barbara Joan Streisand, known professionally as Barbra Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker.

She is definitely the best.
Not only a wonderful performer and singer, but also such an emotional bright actress.

She should be at least in the top 10! Barbra is one of the greatest actress I've ever seen! I love her, especially in Funny Girl.

the one and only Norma Desmond! - redseagrass

You can't tell gloria swanson and norma desmond apart after seeing the movie.

Norma will stick in my mind forever. She was so brave to play that part

After some minor television roles, she made her film debut in Much Ado About Nothing (1993) while still a student at the University of Oxford. She then appeared in British costume dramas such as Prince of Jutland (1994), Cold ...read more.

An actress with wide acting skills. Very versatile in her roles. She surely deserves a higher rank in this list.
Very attractive and a lovely woman in real life. VOTE FOR HER. She needs to get above a lot of actresses in this list that aren't talented as she is.

I think she is the best looking actress of all time. She is also a very good actress and can play everything as seen in Underworld, Pearl Harbor and Click.

Gorgeous and talented, she is very attractive and very versatile in her roles. She, however has a limit, she can't stand an ugly or even an average character. - Toshin

I can't wait to see the new " Underworld " movie that will come out in 2017. Kate Beckinsale is such a talented actress that I'm sure the movie will not be a let-down.

79 Sally Field

How in the world can anyone not include her in the top 10. Norma Rae, Sybil, places of the heart...

She is one of a kind. Starting as a flying nun to where is she at now?

" Maybe I'll come home in the spring ", " Places in the heart ", " Back roads ", " Sybil ", " Norma Rae ", " Stay hungry ", " Smokey and the bandit ", " Surrender ", " Not without my daughter ", " Mrs. Doubtfire ", " Gidget T.V. series ", " The flying nun T.V. series " etc... Different kind of movies ( drama, comedy... ) played all with such diversity in her portrayed characters really proves that Sally Field is one of the best and talented actresses of all time. Two deserved winning Oscars ( and she deserves to win more if you ask me ) and yet I can't believe that she is ranked so low on this list. Many actresses ranked higher on this list doesn't deserves or hasn't got the talents to be above Sally Field. She is a top 5 actress without a doubt. Don't tell me that actresses like Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Aniston, Mila Kunis and so many others on this list ranked higher are more talented than Sally Field. For serious reasons she has to move up, VOTE for Sally Field, ...more

Even in her latest movie " Hello, My name is Doris " at 70 years old she delivers a performance that make many younger and overrated ( Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Scarlet Johansson etc..) actresses not worth to be ranked higher than her. She's clearly a top 5 best actress.
