I already had Blanchett and only added one per film, but I could add the others.

As for Shakespeare and company, I was focusing on modern actors and specified film/TV actors above.

Great idea and good list! I haven''t seen a few that I'd really like to see and heard were brilliant, like Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe and Renee Zellwieger as Judy Garland but I'd have to go with Jessica Lange as Frances Farmer. I love that performance.
