Top 5

Top 5: Actresses

This is a tough one, like the Top 5 Actors before it.  Let me define the criteria and that might help anyone who will immediately tear apart my choices. I’m putting myself in the shoes of a director with the ability to cast whomever I want. I’d want someone with proven chops. I’d want someone who is at the top of their game. I’d want someone who can carry a film and/or can work seamlessly with an ensemble. I’d want these five ladies (in no order but alphabetical).

Amy Adams

Cate Blanchett

Judi Dench

Honorable Mention: Emily Blunt, Helena Bonham Carter, Scarlet Johansson, Susan Sarandon, and Emma Thompson (only because she hasn’t done as much in the last decade)
