81 Vilma Santos

The Best Actress for all seasons and for all reasons. A very respectable and sincere person; true beauty that shines inside and out; full of humility and integrity. A kind-hearted woman who has good values and does not want to be a trying hard person just to please everyone. A genuine gem in Philippine Cinema. Nobody has achieved something as what Vilma has done - from a talented child in Trudis Liit, to a sensational teen actress in the Vilma-Edgar movies (Dama de Noche), to a super woman in Darna (the most popular and successful Darna ever), to a phenomenal Dyesebel, to brave and daring roles in Burlesk Queen and Miss X, to box-office blockbuster movies as in Paano ba and Mangarap, Karma, Pakawalan mo Ako, to the award winning movies and characters in Relasyon, Broken Marriage, Adultery, Sister Stella L. , Dolzura Cortez, to offbeat and experimental roles in Tagos ng Dugo, Sinasamba Kita, Hahamakin and Lahat, to one of the greatest box-office award winning films that touched ...more

An actress could not be called great without versatility. Vilma has portrayed almost any kind or role one could think of and with flying colors. She is without the doubt the most versatile actress in Philippine cinema garnering the most number of best actress awards. She is the only actress in Philippines could truly be called a LIVING LEGEND and the GREATEST.

An actress par excellence, Vilma Santos' brand of acting has continue to evolve through the years and never got stagnated. She can play any character to different genres, be it in drama, horror, comedy, musical, etc. Her latest film "The Healing" is her 210th movie to date, more than 90% of which are lead roles. Her achievements in terms of Best Actress Awards and Box-office Queen Awards are unequaled by her contemporaries. Not only Vilma Santos is a complete actress, she has become equally successful in the field of public service having completed her three terms as Mayor of a major city in Luzon. At present, Santos serves as Governor of a vote-rich Province of Batangas. Vilma achieves an amazing feat of effectively fusing Cinema and Politics. And no one is complaining!

Who the hell is she to be ranked so high?

82 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.

I would put her at the top

WHOOO WHOOO BARBARA STREISAND YOU ARE THE BEST AND THERE's EVEN A SONG TO PROVE IT! Your voice and acting are iconic. Hello, Dolly!

(wrinkles and rats)

83 Sissy Spacek Sissy Spacek Mary Elizabeth "Sissy" Spacek is an American actress and singer. She began her career in the early 1970s and first gained attention for her role in the film Badlands.

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!

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.

I loved her in carrie

Probably the most underrated actress in this century. - Karlbar

85 Judi Dench Judi Dench

Dame Judi Dench is an incredible actress.

86 Claire Danes

She's really underrated. Look at the movie " Broken palace " where she plays alongside Kate Beckinsale and you'll understand why she's underrated. A outstanding performance that makes lots of actresses ranked higher in this list shameful.

So beautiful! And her legs are the best legs in Hollywood. I love her.

Acting beautifully on stage and in movies! Very talented!

Claire Danes has been extremely talented her whole life. I've loved her since "My So-Called Life," but ever since then, she has truly taken off in her acting career.
Seeing her perform in Temple Grandin, one of the most inspiring movies ever made, was unbelievably amazing and emotional.
She is tremendously versatile and she commands the screen in whatever she stars in.
My respect and appreciation of Claire Danes will be forever. She is the REAL THING. Genuine in life, genuine in her screen portrayal of complicated emotions and situations.
She seems so underrated to me. Her subtle strength and vibrance in her performances are incredibly impressive.
She is just a complete natural. A natural born performer.

87 Mia Wasikowska Mia Wasikowska Mia Wasikowska is an Australian actress best known for starring as Alice Kingsleigh in Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

It really annoys me when people are comparing her to Gwyneth Paltrow ( there's maybe a very little look-a-like ). She's actually thousand times a better and talented actress than Gwyneth Paltrow. Should move up.

A bright up and coming star ever since 2010's Alice in Wonderland, Mia Wasikowska has gone on to secure roles in key films since like Crimson Peak. Mia is one to watch for the future.

Very underrated and highly talented actress. Movies like " Stoker ", " Jane Eyre ", " Madame Bovary ", " Alice in wonderland "... proves how talented and diverse this actress is. An actress who dares to take risks and who succeeds in her performances. This actress needs to move up!

Australia's sweetheart.

88 Bette Midler

love love love the rose ,only this lady couldve played her . why was i only 6 at the time

No! She shouldn't be on the list. Her best talent is being gutsy and able to shock people. But anyone can show boobs.

She can be funny, serious, dramatic...I.E. the Rose, Beaches, First Wives Club

Loved Bette Midler in Beaches. But where on earth is Barbara Hershey?

89 Halle Berry Halle Berry

Ridiculous that I am the first to include her on this list. Yes there is Catwoman but I blame that on the Director trying to build the movie on her beautiful rather than her talent. Otherwise she has a great resume that would surpass most people on this list, Selena Gomez, Geez, come on!

Come on people, are you rating beauty, porn or actual talent. She hasn't got it... Talent, that is.

Your hot, sexy, gorgeous, Please spend a week w/me

If a fairy came along and said I could look like anyone...she'd be it.

Loved You as Batgirl - Stevenuniversefangirl

94 Eva Green Eva Green Eva Gaëlle Green is a French actress and model. She started her career in theatre before making her film debut in 2003 in Bernardo Bertolucci's film The Dreamers.

Looks Always angry in her movies. Overrated for her so called beauty. Nothing special.

95 Peyton List Peyton List Peyton Roi List is an American actress and model. List is best known for playing Emma Ross on the Disney Channel comedy series Jessie and Holly Hills in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film series.

I thought that she would a least be in the fist 10 or 20 because she is pretty, has a stunning voice and has gleaming blue eyes, no supervise that she was good at being Holly Hills in Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

She's really awesome

Love her from " Diary of a Wimpy Kid " and " Jessie " and " Bunk'd "

Uh, no.

96 Tilda Swinton Tilda Swinton Katherine Matilda "Tilda" Swinton of Kimmerghame is an Anglo-Scottish actress, performance artist, model, and fashion muse, known for both arthouse and mainstream films.

Great in narnia

I think great in many films. Whatever I see her in, her performance resonates. Her creepy, power hungry corporate attorney Karen Crowder in "Michael Clayton" is amazing. - Ned964

97 Heather O'Rourke Heather O'Rourke Heather O'Rourke was an American child actress. She was discovered by director Steven Spielberg when she was visiting MGM's studios.

Not a real actress? She died when she was 12 years old. Best known for the Poltergeist movies ( she did a few other movies ). This little girl had a potential but she was taken away too soon from us.

Who cares? She did five lines in her whole movie career. Doesn't belong here. Tragic death for sure but this is a list about best actresses.

Not even an actress

98 Yvonne Strahovski Yvonne Strahovski
99 Tina Fey Tina Fey

You should be number one

She's ok but to concider her has a top actress is too overrated.

Rare... funny & beautiful.
