I realize this list was created by AMC, but wow, I don't agree. Yes its subjective but really - Julia Roberts? Halle Berry? Sandra Bullock? Reese Witherspoon? No Faye Dunaway, Sissy Spacek, Rosalind Russell, Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie, Catherine Deneuve?

Yeah, she's another one. I think for many of the modern actresses listed it's too early. I think Kidman, Portman, Witherspoon have potential to be "Great" actresses but I don't feel they have enough under their belt to get that title.

Yep, I stopped when I saw Sandra Bullock was one of the answers. She MIGHT make a Top 50 list if it were for actresses named Sandra with the surname initial of B. Julie Christie was the first missing name that came to mind, but there are countless others. I guess none of them could quite master hyperventilating in a space suite quite like Ms. Bullock, though. SMH.

no Maggie smith, Helen Mirren, Jessica Tandy Geraldine Page, Shelly Winters Anjelica Huston come on they been around a while and deserve the title more than Bullock, Berry, and Witherspoon. Witherspoon has continued to greatly disapoint me since walk the line

i agree with others here.......a lot of the greats were missing here and i was in SHOCK to see Kidman, Witherspoon, Berry, Jolie & Bullock on here.... (i may have missed one). TIME is the true test....some of these 'newcomers' have potential, obviously, but its WAY to early to call them greats! i would rather have seen the likes of Helen Mirrin, Marsha Gaye Hardin, Olympia Dukakis, Diane Lane or Kathy Bates on this list before Julia Roberts!!

What about Gene Tierney or Julianne Moore or Gena Rowlands ? Halle Berry, Natalie Portman and Angelina Jolie have been great in some films, but surely do not have nowhere near the same curriculum vitae as, for example Gene Tierney, Gena Rowlands or Catherine Deneuve. And i agree that witherspoon's choices have been terrible since walk the line.

Not to say anything bad about any of these ladies but this is so wrong that they didn't include Helen Mirren, Susan Sarandon or Jessica Lange but included other women that haven't put nearly enough years and incredible movies out in comparison. Kinda shameful.

I may be wrong but if you go with their most famous movies to make it easier, I first thought of these: "The Man Who Knew Too Much" or "Pillow Talk" for Doris Day; "Ninotchka" for Greta Garbo; "Rear Window" or "High Noon" for Grace Kelly; "Some Like it Hot" for Marilyn Monroe. As a reference point, they also all have a significantly higher amount of IMDb votes.

Seems like this is just a list of the actresses that were the major starlets of their era with a few undeniably great actresses like Judi Dench and Meryl Streep mixed in. Many of these people were actresses mostly because they were uncommonly beautiful, and they did good-but-not-great work with maybe one or two very good performances in their careers. The omission of Maggie Smith is incomprehensible.

Time doesn't make it any easier to see if an actor is good or not; it just makes it harder to criticize them as they are swallowed up by nostalgia But I think I agree that Bullock and Berry don't deserve being so high. I kind of like Jolie.
