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.

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

They can say anything they want about the Superstar. But one thing is certain... She is simply the best among the rest. Hands down. Beat that... 👍

4 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.

She's one of the most prime actress among superstars, versatile actress and the best actress of all time. The real Asia's Queen of Drama and the one and the only Teleserye Queen..

5 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.

She must belong in the TOP 10 BEST ACTRESS IN THE Philippines because she can do all genres in show business. She also proved that she deserves all her achieved awards in acting

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

She should be in the top 10 definitely!

9 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.

A second to none, greatest actress of all time, the longest box office queen and hundreds of trophy, plaque and recognition for the one and only star for all season is really a greatest achievements for her. Best actress and grandslam queen.

Honestly, among of them all Bea is number 1 in terms of acting. You really can feel her emotions as if shes really the person in the character. That's all I can say. Hands down to Bea

Why she? top caliber in acting performance that's the best keyword to define her acting, unlike others they define their character in different adaptations

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

She's spectacular

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

26 Lorna Tolentino

Lt is still the original grand slam best actress

I love Lorna Tolentino... She is the BEST!

Very good screen players admire her films a lot

She is the best. I love her

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

37 Jessy Mendiola

I like jessy mendiola a lot because she is beautiful, sexy and a very outstanding actress I ever known two thumbs up for you girl!
