  1. Great list. I definitely agree with you on Scarlett, Julianne Moore and Rose Byrne – they are all great. Oh and so is Jennifer Lawrence! Charlize Theron was great in Mad Max: Fury Road. Mia Wasikowska however, is a hit and miss with me. She is usually good, though in Jane Eyre (2011), I wasn’t a fan. Most likely because I didn’t think anyone could beat Ruth Wilson’s performance.

      Thank you, this is very much a work in progress, There’s actresses not on this list that I adore, but I’m gradually adding to the list as I see films. Happy for Scarlett to sit at the top of the tree, though. In recent times, her performances in Don Jon and Under the Skin have impressed me.

  2. Nice to see Naomi Watts in your top three. For me she’s one of the best in the world.

      Thank you. Yes, ever since the audition scene in Muholland Drive, I’ve been a huge fan of hers. I didn’t think she got enough credit for King Kong, either. Her interactions with the giant ape are what brought it to life.
