10. Katharine Hepburn in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner? : 1/2/5

9. Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins: 3/5

8. Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl: 4,5/5

7. Patricia Neal in Hud: 4,5/5

6. Sophia Loren in Two Women: 4,5/5

Elizabeth rightfully deserves that second spot.....She is just as commanding to even hold the top spot....She emanates so much charisma when she's on the screen.

Twister: She's one of my favorite winners as well! Isn't Julia Roberts your worst winner?

Sage: Yes, it was hard for me to decide between Taylor and Hepburn, but Hepburn really blew me away. I'm kind of sad that Bancroft isn't your top 5 though. Ah well.

Nigel:Yes, she had great presence! Unlike her performance in Butterfield 8......
