2 Marian Rivera Marian Rivera Marian Rivera Gracia-Dantes, known professionally as Marian Rivera, is a Spanish Filipino commercial model and actress, best known for her roles in Marimar, Dyesebel, Amaya, and Temptation of Wife.

She's the only Primetime Queen in the Philippines and she' well-loved by her millions of fans from all-over the world.. Altho' she's very much misinterpreted by others especially those who doesn't like her and haters, she's still fun to be with and warm to her friends and fans. She is so compassionate to those who are not so well in health and often visits in hospitals or any place where the patients are and give moral support or items, food and medicines for help. She's Marian Rivera, our beautiful inside and out Primetime Queen, the #9 most prettiest face in the world, once an FHM #1 sexiest, very excellent actress(many wonder why she hasn't got any prominent award in acting)a very good dancer, music and dance hits, blockbuster movies, T.V. comedy hits(proven and tested a comedien), hits T.V. series and many many others to mention. She's Marian Rivera of the Philippines... Thanks a lot

3 Nora Aunor

Nora Aunor is the number one living actress of Asia. She has proven it not only once, twice, thrice, many, many times in both local and international competitions. She is 3 years senior than me that is why I know where she came from to be become the only Filipino actress that beat foreign films during her prime times. Distributors of foreign films were afraid to open their films simultaneous with Nora. They normally started their films showings 2 or 3 days behind Nora's new film. For 2 decades she was the flag bearer of Filipino movie world. Her contemporaries were far behind at second or third place. Theaters have to use long, long ropes to guide movie goers. It was always like a procession was passing by. During mall or provincial tours, people could not be satisfied if they could not make a glimpse of the one and only superstar. At 60, she is still like a century-wine that even tastes better and better and better. Long live Nora Aunor and always the model of deprived Filipinos who ...more

I voted Nora Aunor for 10 best actresses, She must be the number one, In her long ranged in Film industry, she was awarded because of her good performance. Until now she is reaping more appreciation from the local and International Film Festival, Besides for being Superstar she is really the phenomenal. So, if were you, you better switch

Superstar Nora Aunor is the Philippines greatest performer of all time being the most awarded actor/actress whether local and international in the history of Philippine Entertainment Industry covering all kinds of medium... The movies, T.V., music and stage plays! As of this time no one else can beat her Artistic records!

4 Kathryn Bernardo Kathryn Bernardo

Because she has a wonderful heart and make scholarships for the person who has nothing..

Kathryn Bernard has been doing a good thing ever since. Even their films of her real life boyfriend Daniel Padilla hit the highest grossing Filipino film of all time. She's beautiful, everyone can see it. Her tantalizing eyes that makes you stare. Her fierce aura makes you amaze in her beauty. It feels like heaven seeing her. Many people idolized her real personalities and accepted her what ever she is.

Kathryn Bernardo is the epitome of true beauty and passion. She is not just your typical actress. She shows her wit and grit to every interviews and she puts in so much effort and determination in perfecting her craft as an actress to give the audience what they deserve. She may be neglected by others but she still stand strong. A perfect role model to all her fans.

She's an epitome of simplicity. She can afford anything she wants but remains humble and down to earth. She's been helping out charities and also she's investing into business because she knows that the limelight wouldn't be forever. She's a beauty inside and out.

5 Judy Ann Santos

She's the only actress can perform different roles either in movie or in teleserye.And she is the desire of the most celebrities in our planet earth. Anybody can do a movie or teleserye with her their career brighter.All her movies and teleseryes succeed.Judy Ann Santos is one of the best Actresses of all generations.She's the Endoser Queen, Multi Awarded Best Actress in movie and in Philippine T.V., Best T.V. personalities, Anak T.V. awardee, Box Office Queen, One of the ASIA'S ICON, Queen of all Queens, and the Philippine Soap Opera Queen. The one and only YOUNG SUPER STAR OF ALL GENERATIONS- Ms. Judy Ann Santos- Agocillo.

She is the youngest icon of philippine movie industry, she is the best actress among his generation

Of course! She's unbeatable...she could be level with those veterans stars. Whoever will be pair with her for sure his career would be as shine as the stars. & I think ABS CBN did a wrong choice of taking away her teleserye because almost the new generations could only be famous in just a very short moment of their career. Unlike Judy Ann even she took a rest after some time but still she's still shining, the love & admiration of all people never been change.

Ms Judy Ann Santos, for me she's the Angelina Jollie of the Philippines! The Soap Opera Queen of all time...deserves to be on the top 1.

6 Maricel Soriano

The most versatile actress in Philippine Cinema! No one can't argue with that. She can do both drama and comedy in the most significant way! She's always included in surveys for Top 10 All-Time Best Actress.

No reasons were needed. Her awards proven that she is truly a best actress.

She should be in the top 10 definitely!

10 Vilma Santos

Vilma Santos, the greatest actress of all time and the longest Box Office Queen of Philippines Movies!

For the very simple reason that she is still on the limelight until now. She in indeed an icon in Philippine cinema proving worth in all aspects. She can be as great as what they say the universal actress Nora Aunor. Ms. Santos for me is one of the greatest for she combine acting & public service. She has a good reputation as a public servant...and this roles lead to perfection as a real actress in the world. Shes simply the best for me.

The top two spots should be a toss between Vilma Santos and Nora Aunor. They're the Philippine Cinema's best actresses. They're also the most awarded actresses in the Philippines--and they have the trophies to show for it. No other actress in the country can match or even come close to what these two actresses have accomplished in their career. They're the last two real queens of local cinema.

The unsinkable, unparalleled, uncomparable and an unmatched female celebrity who outshines everyone not only in showbiz but also in politics... Her charismatic presence, ageless beauty inside and out, bankability, pure and clean heart are some of the words that best described The Star For All Seasons...
Ms Vilma Santos!

No doubt, no explanations, she absolutely deserves to be on top above all!

25 Jolina Magdangal

She is one of the few stars who maintained good values in and out of showbiz. Others may have great achivements but their value as star will fade away soon. She is the orig Multimedia Superstar. They said other is Ultimate but where is the value? I look up for those who has a great impact to all generation not just once but for all time generation. Jolina has no best actress yet, but for millions outhere, she is one of the best actesses, though because of the new aspiring actresses, she gives way for them to shine but the real talent will remain at the end.. And she is the real ultimate survivor, the multimedia star icon and great person for her family. To identify an actress as best, look beyond of her... Not just what she is doing now

One the versatile actress... She can do anything

36 Gina Pareno

She is more than VILMA & NORA because she acts very stunning, soulful and very natural. Unlike other big stars GINA is not forcing herself to act very hard to say that she is a good actress but she delivers a story very natural. She acts not too powerful but she acts on what her role needed. You can tell that she is good in acting not only by her eyes but also in how she deliver her dialogue. Her voice change every time she deliver every emotions. What I like in Gina is she is not competing to other big stars but if she cries on the screen try not to say WOW!

She is the Jewel of Philippine cinema and portrayed roles that are tailored for genuine performances like hers. Like NORA AUNOR & VILMA SANTOS, she represents the real meaning of quality and versatility when it comes to acting. Bravo to all three!

Maggie Smith of the Philippine cinema. Such a poignant balance between comedy and drama. Such remarkable talent. From Lola Gets of Tayong Dalawa to Belita of Kasal Kasali Kasalo and her role in Kubrador, she is the definition of versatility
