This one is even harder than the men to pick just 11 (and 'other').
Again, I had to drop the 'past' actresses to make this more manageable and still many deserving actresses had to be dropped.
Honorable mentions: Amy Adams, Kathy Bates, Judi Dench, Michelle Williams, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sally Fields, Melissa Leo (except for her Oscar winning speech :lol)
Anyway, who do you consider the three greatest actresses of our time? I know the 'Other' will get lots of votes. You can define greatness in your own way. I am looking at consistently excellent performances by the actress, usually over many years (though that does not apply very well to the young ones).
