Since 1925, 95 Best Actress awards have been bestowed by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. As of mid-2022, those Academy Awards have gone to a total of 78 women (as some have won the award more than once). The list is a Who’s Who of Hollywood royalty, and features some of the finest performances to ever grace the silver screen! And now, for a special Patreon-sponsored minisode, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to determine the Best Best Actress Oscar win of all time — and we want YOUR opinions!
Below find a chronological list of every Best Actress Oscar winner since the award’s inception nearly 100 years ago. (You can also take the poll by clicking here.) Go through the list and pick your favorite performances — you may pick as many as you like. The Top 16 vote-getters will make up the bracket for our panel to debate.
