Just curious. I think Meryl is wonderful, of course, but I prefer Judi.

Again, why does it have to be one or the other. Both women have done amazing work that will hold up through many years -- we are lucky to have them both.

Meryl is not fit to wipe the spittle from Dame Judi Dench's water glass.

I've never seen the attraction of Meryl Streep. So she can put on a fake accent and a wig. Big deal. There is no inner life in her acting. I've seen both women perform live and Judi Dench is the better actress.

Plus, Dench has done film, tv, stage, musicals, comedy, drama, you name it, all done successfuly. She's played Sally Bowles, Desiree Armfeldt, Lady MacBeth, James Bond's M, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Iris Murdoch.

Against Judi Dench, Meryl Streep is just a hacktress.

Shouldn't Maggie Smith be in this question somewhere as well? Impossible to name one over the other. It's like asking a parent which child do you love more? Although, I think,and I am not alone on this, that Judi is probably one of the hottest women passed 75 on the planet. Something so sexy about her.

I think the three of them should be "Sister Wives" to Beau Bridges in a new movie.

I was thinking how beautiful she looked in Best Exotic Marigold. When she is filmed with her hair white, it really makes her blue eyes stand out all the more.

Vanessa Redgrave stomps on both. Need proof? She turned a bit part in Mission:Impossible to the most interesting character in the movie.

For you kiddies, watch Isadora, The Devils, Julia, Second Serve just for starters.

I could not agree with you more. Vanessa was the best thing about MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE. I was hoping she would return in a future MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE film with a bigger part. Her character of Max is so interesting. She is another favorite that needs to be added to this list.

I can't choose between these amazing ladies. I probably have more of a fondness for Meryl, but I couldn't rank her above Judi, or Vanessa, or Maggie.

The best thing about all of these women is that they have such a palpable love for acting and it pervades all their roles. They aren't doing it for recognition or adoration, they're doing it because they love it and want to do it.

Of these, I'd choose Maggie Smith, though I'm glad that I don't have to choose.

I do like Maggie Smith, but I feel like now, no matter what she's in, all her scenes consist of the other characters setting her up to say something badass.

Meryl Streep and Judi Dench. No reason to pick one over the other.
