Though seriously there are a lot of actresses out there more deserving than Linda Hamilton. How on Earth did she make it? I mean I love Terminator 2 and all, but...

Sounds to me like you're judging her, based not on her ability, but the films she appeared in. Maybe she was an outstanding actor in a crappy film.

Terminator 2 is an outstanding film. Linda Hamilton is a mediocre actress. So it's actually the other way around...
