Top 10 Best Actress Oscar Winners Ever?


Interesting choices, and often these Oscars go to people in biopics which I have listed at the links below.

I think Lady Gaga did a great job of the medley from "The Sound of Music" this year - which is, of course, another highly poetically-licensed biopic. 

Not many, IMHO, have a voice as beautiful as Julie Andrews, but all credit to Lady Gaga where credit is due.   


Happily my favourite actress, Elizabeth Taylor is in the clip as indeed she deserves to be.

Like Charleze Theron she took on a very unflattering appearance to win one of  her Oscars,"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" but then again she also got one for "Butterfield 8" which highlighted her beauty and acting ability. Also included is Vivien Leigh, an obvious choice.


From You Tube:
These are some of the most well deserved Best Actress Oscars awarded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
