Faye Dunaway, in her prime. Liv Ullmann. Isabelle Huppert. Meryl Streep. Helen Mirren. Julianne Moore. Isabella Rossillini (though she has had a few mis-steps). Lili Taylor. Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Some recent actresses that are impressive: Samantha Morton, Toni Collette, Sarah Polley, Naomi Watts (solely for 'Mulholland Drive'), Emily Watson, Kate Winslet (excluding a few films, one involving a boat).

Excuse me for choosing mainly British character actresses, but that’s the way it is. A top 10 list would look something like this:

Rachel Roberts
Katharine Hepburn
Joan Greenwood
Julie Christie
Margaret Rutherford
Joan Hickson
Mona Washbourne
Una O’Connor
Lillian Gish
Brigitte Mira

With mentions also to Maggie Smith, Katie Johnson, Coral Browne, Tilda Swinton, Alison Steadman, Ann Way, Helen Mirren and Emily Watson.

I like your picks Gaz, but how could you have left off the very British Deborah Kerr? I'd also add Googie Withers to my list of British Actresses. My List:

Julie Christie
Harriet Andersson
Meryl Streep
Joan Greenwood
Gena Rowlands
Faye Dunaway
Katherine Hepburn
Claudia Cardinale
Emmanuele Beart
Paulette Goddard

Diane Keaton and Shirley Maclaine have always been my favourites. I also like Catherine Denneuve and Jeanne Moreau a lot even though I've only seen a fraction of their work.

Some of my favourite contemporary actresses are Emmanuelle Beart, Emma Thompson, Brenda Blethyne and Juliane Moore.

Nice to see Sarah Polley on your list, par72. I thought she was wonderful in My Life Without Me.
