    Well, I think Marilyn had more of the ditzy blonde roles were as Elizabeth had more meatier roles to work with. She wasn't so stereotyped as Marilyn, so for number one, I'd go with Elizabeth having the better career.

    I have no idea who got the most awards, but I would imagine during their lifetimes Liz probably got more than Marilyn. Once again, Marilyn got typed cast as a sex-symbol so I just don't see her getting an Academy Award.

    They both had hit films. Marilyn was on a role in the 50s, but Liz had them all of her life until the 70s or 80s.

    They both had traumatic lives, but with Marilyn not having anyone to turn to and Liz having better relationships, not healthy relationship, but she seemed to have more loyal people than Marilyn, I'd say Liz had a better overall life. Not to mention, Marilyn was quite off balanced psychologically. Liz didn't have those kinds of problems other than alcoholism and going from man to man, but Marilyn's problems seemed to be much deeper.
