Hey! I love your blog. I'm a bit of an Oscar geek myself, so I'll be following this blog closely :)
I really like that you've ranked Michelle Pfeiffer so high. She's my fave actress and I think she's one of the most underrated actresses ever. Thumbs up for recognizing true talent!

Muy buen Ranking! Amo a Michelle Pfeiffer y por ser tan hermosa se la castigo muy duro en la Academia, me encanta que este bien alto en el ranking, porque es una actriz maravillosa, sumamente expresiva
y poco apreciada por el Oscar...
