The Oscar Quest: Best Best Actress Choices

Well, this’ll be easy.

Ranking the best of any category is simple to do just because the decisions speak for themselves, either through the performance or through history. Or both.

Again, let me remind you, the specific rankings are a matter of personal preference. All I’m saying is that all of these belong on this list. The rest is a matter of opinion.

Here are the best Best Actress choices, according to me:

10. 1949, Olivia de Havilland, The Heiress

9. 1988, Jodie Foster, The Accused

8. 2007, Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose

7. 1965, Julie Christie, Darling

6. 1948, Jane Wyman, Johnny Belinda

5. 1966, Elizabeth Taylor, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
