    Shambolicus It's 'cause I'm short, I know...

    Yep. While there are some great women actors already being noted here, Frances McDormand pretty much owns the title at present.

    +1 for Frances. She's been on my radar since Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, and of course Fargo. Oh, ya.

    Certainly not to dis Glenn and Meryl. Or Dame Maggie or Helen.

    Nomadland on Hulu inspired this thread.

    Don't currently have Hulu. Here's hoping it'll eventually show up on Netflix or HBO.

    Meryl will likely get the majority vote, but she doesn't do much for me onscreen. She is a great actresses, but there are many more actresses I find more engaging. It could be the characters she portrays or films she stars in. Comes down to preference I guess. "Best" is really arbitrary, but Meryl will win solely based on nominations and awards.

    hmmm she does a lot of fluff now so might lower her ranking.

    Julianne Moore is just barely 60, not "over 60" per the thread title. If she were, she'd happily be on my list.

    Although her propensity for offbeat roles might keep her from some folks' "best of" lists,

    I would vote Meryl Streep. Another nominee: Judy Davis
     
  21. First one I thought of, then Meryl Streep.
