Meryl Streep--seriously? no contest
Cameron Diaz--banks is cute, but diaz had me at Any Given Sunday
Laura Linney--I though leo was overrated. flame me. Linney is solid in everything she does
Annette Bening--this one is tough, but benings performance in american beauty is painful to watch
Helena Bonham Carter--like keener, but carter takes more risks
Jessica Lange--Arrggh!! this is impossible! i'll close my eyes and pick Lange!
Susan Sarandon--okay, now you're just torturning me. I'll give it to sarandon because she's been in more things I love
Glenn Close--judi dench rocks, but nobody plays a villainess with such relish as Glenn Close. with the possible exception of Bette Davis
Frances McDormand--moore is unfortunately underused. but I can watch mcdormand's quirky coen brothers characters over and over
Jodie Foster--they've both been in a lot of movies I love, but foster is less trapped by her accent
Tilda Swinton--mortimer just doesn't make the impression that swinton does
Toni Collette--primarily because i loved her as the mother in the sixth sense
Noomi Rapace vs. Amy Ryan--haven't seen either of them
Robin Wright (Penn)--I know I'm alone in this, but bullock gets on my nerves.
Salma Hayek--dust til dawn, the dance with the snake baby.
Claire Danes--reese is a darling, but I loved danes as temple grandin
Julia Roberts--I may poke my eyes out with a red hot poker for picking this, but julia roberts star power and sheer number of watchable movies is undeniable
Natalie Portman--black swan pushes her over the edge and I don't care who did the dancing
Angelina Jolie--kidman's overrated, imo
Marisa Tomei--another excellent but underused actress. not that crazy about naomi watts
Hillary Swank--she doesn't get many roles, but she knocks them out of the part when she does
Scarlett Johansson--couldn't pick between the two then I remember mcadams is in The Family Stone which is a movie I hate with a passion
Olivia Wilde--don't really know either one. I give it to wilde because she had a little more to do as eyecandy in Tron than the other did in XMen
Charlize Theron--please, have you seen Monster?
Diane Kruger--i'm not an underworld fan and I liked kruger in Inglorious Basterds. plus Kate's still got to live with being in pearl harbor
Kristin Stewart--i liked stewart as joan jett
Kim Basinger--sharon stone has one mode--psycho beotch. basinger has one mode--vulnerable . I prefer watching basinger. besides she was fantastic in LA Confidential
Zooey Deschanel--she's so much fun to watch
Jessica Alba--biel gets on my nerves
Megan Fox--dont' know bell, but I think Fox gets a little too much grief just for letting bay stick a camera up her butt for two movies.
