Greatest performances by women (still thinking of Brando)

Y'know, for some reason I had a hell of an easier time making up this list:

Falconetti in The Passion of Joan of Arc

Nora Aunor in Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos (Three Years Without God)

Anna Magnani in Rome, Open City

Lolita Rodriguez in Tinimbang Ka Ngunit Kulang (You Were Judged and Found Wanting)

Supriya Choudhury in The Cloud-Capped Star

Nargis in Mother India

Camilla Horn in Faust

Kinoyu Tanaka in The Life of Oharu

Monica Vitti in L'Avventura

Lilian Gish in Broken Blossom

Looking at the list, I realized I don't have any comic roles, mostly martyr ones. Well, I can think of Mae West Margaret Dumont, Lily Tomlin, Carol Burnett, Bette Midler among others...but not on a top ten list.
