All time Oscar winners

Who's the All-Time Best Actress Winner?

Many legendary actresses have walked off the Oscar stage in victory. True, there are also many who haven’t but we’re not here to worry about them. Which actresses who have won were the best?

Like Cal Ripken Jr.’s record for most consecutive baseball games played, this may be one of those marks that will never be equaled.

With a nomination at age 14 for “Taxi Driver, ” Jodie Foster is among the youngest people to receive an Oscar nod. And with a second Best Actress statue by the age of 29, she became the second youngest woman to reach that benchmark. Are these solid enough credentials to earn a claim as the best Best Actress?

Vote now for which Best Actress Oscar winner is the best of them all.

  • Spike Lee

    The director has refused to attend this year's Academy Awards because no people of color were nominated. "How is it possible for the 2nd consecutive year all 20 contenders under the actor category are white? And let’s not even get into the other branches. 40 white actors in 2 years and no flava at all. We can’t act?! WTF!!” he tweeted.

    The actress - whose husband, Will Smith, was snubbed for Best Actor for "Concussion" - pondered on social media whether people of color should participate in the Oscars at all. “At the Oscars, people of color are always welcomed to give out awards, even entertain, but we are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments.

    "At this current time, we’re uncomfortable to stand there and say, ‘This is OK, '" he said.

  • The actor, while presenting a King Legacy Award to Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, pointed out that this is the second year in a row the Academy has failed to nominate a single non-white actor. "For 20 opportunities to celebrate actors of color, actresses of color, to be missed last year is one thing; for that to happen again this year is unforgivable.”

  • The filmmaker told TheWrap that he plans to join the boycott, and said "I thought about this all day, and I don’t plan to go to the show, I don’t plan to watch it and I don’t plan to go to an Oscar party."

  • The "Straight Outta Compton" producer called the situation "embarrassing" in a lengthy social media post. “To my Academy colleagues, WE HAVE TO DO BETTER. Period."
