10 Incredible Actresses Who Possess Outstanding Film Catalogs

Written By CJ Ervin

Today is a great day to be sober. Thanks for stopping by.

Have you ever felt like actors get all their accolades while actresses rarely receive praise? Have you ever thought to yourself, which actresses absolutely deserve more admiration for their filmography? One filmaholic asked a popular online cinephile forum, “What actresses have the most consistently good filmographies?” Here are ten of the forum’s responses.

1. Frances McDormand

With a career spanning over 40 years, McDormand is an actress and producer. She initially gained her claim to fame in roles for smaller independent films. Some of her most notable performances are Fargo, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Nomadland.

2. Cate Blanchett

This Australian actress is considered one of the greatest entertainers of her time. Blanchett is viewed as multifaceted due to her extensive track record across independent films, big-time hits, and stage plays. She won a Golden Globe and BAFTA awards for her excellent portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in the period drama piece Queen.

3. Anya Taylor Joy

Despite being only 27, this bombshell has already amassed 33 film and TV credits. Anya Taylor-Joy was born in Miami but raised between Buenos Aires and London. After falling in love with theater and acting, she left school at 16 in pursuit of happiness, and she has never looked back. Some of her most notable accolades are Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

4. Viola Davis

When the release of Suicide Squad was announced, I immediately thought of Viola Davis for Amanda Waller. It just fits so well for her. Despite the general displeasure for the first Suicide Squad, she has a killer filmography that backs up her place on this list.

5. Sally Field

Sally Field has had an illustrious career that has spanned over five decades. Field is known for her expansive catalog across film and stage. Her earliest roles include GidgetThe Flying Nun, and The Girl with Something Extra.

6. Florence Pugh

Although she’s only been on the scene for less than ten years, Florence Pugh has racked up almost 30 on-screen credits. Of course, some of my favorite Florence appearances are those in the  Marvel Cinematic Universe. But we can not overlook her roles in Midsommar, Little Women, and Fighting With My Family.

7. Jodie Foster

This megastar won two Oscars before she was 30. She has been on-screen since she was two years old, working in commercials. She has been in works such as Mayberry R.F.D., Taxi Driver, The Accused, and Silence of the Lambs. Jodie Foster has also been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for her work as a director.

8. Saoirse Ronan

Hailed as one of the youngest actresses to be nominated for an Academy Award and the second youngest person to be nominated for an Oscar three times before the age of 24. We all know Ronan from her role in Hanna or Atonement, but Saoirse Ronan made her acting debut in a semi-recurring role on a TV show.

9. Julianne Moore

Her acting career has been fruitful since the 90s, and it doesn’t seem to show her slowing down. Julianne Moore is the daughter of a military judge and was born in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Aside from her role in blockbuster films, she is also known as the emotionally troubled woman in more minor, independent features.

10. Scarlett Johansson

ScarJo was not once but twice named the highest-paid actress in 2018 and 2019. Her films have grossed over $14.3 billion worldwide, making her the highest-grossing box office star of all time. So it’s only fitting that Johannson has aspired to be an actress since a very young age. Scarlett Johannson has a cornucopia of films to list, but my favorite ScarJo flick has to be Marvel’s Black Widow at the moment.
