1. Kathy Najimi, Sister Act
    907dbf79 e31a 4dc4 9582 5e38696ad513
    The one true inspiration for this list.
  2. Naomi Campbell, the interview with Tyra on The Tyra Show
    276f6f0c a1a8 403f b24e e0c7244355a5
    Is this a movie? No. Should they have made an exception? Absolutely. Intriguingly Naomi should also win an Oscar for her Oprah Show appearance, but that would be Supporting Actress, whereas on Tyra's show she's unquestionably a lead.
  3. This bitch, Notorious
    84fd60fd 1ebb 434f bdba 1d22450fb985
    Minus the Nazism, this is what I imagine my thirties will be like.
  4. Nora Ephron, everything
    641e1ad0 e1ea 4f9a 8bc9 470808c97804
    Just pretend this AFI microphone being held up in tribute to Mike Nichols is an Oscar. It's less painful that way.
  5. Fran Drescher, The Nanny
    C105f9e7 0278 434c b7cb 45f9cd04816f
    John Williams could fart into a microphone and win an Oscar but Fran Drescher created, starred in, and wrote The Nanny and yet she has no Oscar.
  6. Gina Gershon, Showgirls
    8e885a38 b77d 4f82 8ebb f8f32c68ad63
    A friend once asked me if I could give one woman the ultimate Supporting Actress Oscar out of every supporting actress in every movie ever made, who would I pick? And then I murdered him for disrespecting Gina and pretending there is even a competition.
  7. Shirley Chisholm, Shirley Chisholm's 1972 presidential campaign
    A2139b2e c6cc 4a87 a7e8 9b3de451ec11
    Unbought and unbossed but no Oscar? Smh.
  8. Every woman who has ever starred in an adaptation of Dangerous Liaisons
    Ce7011af fb8e 4697 a542 14068ff5750b
    Every. Goddamn. One. This might be a separate list?
  9. Nancy Meyers's kitchen, every Nancy Meyers movie
    E53c56cc 15a2 4b51 809d 177a24e46782
    If this can't win Production Design, why is there a Production Design award at all?
  10. Joan Cusack, running into that water fountain and probably snapping her pelvis in half in Broadcast News
    A9bc918e 0ee4 4b8d 8f8c 8670179009d3
    The most I have ever laughed in a movie.
  11. Toni Collette, Emma
    71ecfa30 49fd 4e6a acf9 2146ceac941c
    Fun fact: Toni Collette is Oscar winner Marion Cotillard's favorite actress. I wonder if she's seen Emma.
  12. Björk, Dancer In The Dark
    654efe4b 8c03 4ba9 b602 fa8f9397649c
    ugh fuck me up Icelandic alien queen 😭
  13. Raven-Symoné, That's So Raven
    4598d886 7ddb 4c14 8f71 791bb089b492
    Iconic. I hope she stays on The View forever.
  14. Pam Grier, Jackie Brown
    27edb23d 087d 4f33 ab26 456900be0664
    I'm not going to explain this. You know. We all know.
  15. Rosalind Russell, The Women
    D100483c 2c02 493e 9fdb 97ea9f2da6dc
    Look at this queen and tell me she doesn't deserve ten Oscars.
  16. Rosalind Russell's hat, His Girl Friday
    B13b4c15 cb52 4233 9b5c 46d3c2d90e37
    Best Supporting Hattress
  17. Viola Davis, The Help
    07f4466c c9ae 4063 9765 6c68d7a597cc
    I'm sorry but I still can't watch Meryl's speech from that year and that was a REALLY good speech.
  18. Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Honorable Woman
    645ba328 1440 4835 81c3 ebf26bd5b3d0
    I watched this for eight hours straight this weekend and I wish Maggie could spontaneously EGOT for it.
  19. Gael García Bernal, Bad Education
    11199f69 2f54 4907 8075 832df3927407
    Not at all being facetious or Eddie Redmayne-y OMG *TRANS*FORMATION about this (sorry Eddie! You still seem sweet!) but I love Pedro's men who become women.
  20. Beyoncé, Beyoncé
    929fdc7c 8d40 496f b297 b530f803f505
    But I would have settled for Listen.
