We do like 'em with green skin and wearing black pointy hats, don't we?

Beautiful, sophisticated, and deliciously evil, not to mention Oscar-nominated...that's all.

I don't know if I'd call Miranda a villain. Bitch, yes, but not a villain.

Faye Dunaway's Mommie Dearest. Come now, have you ever been more scared and creeped out in your life?
I ask in all honesty/What would life be?/Without a song and a dance, what are we?/So I say "Thank you for the music/For giving it to me."

I agree completely with Hans Gruber. And that reminds me of my favorite comic villains - the Sheriff of Nottingham!

I mean, if we're going for over the top, of course I love Faye in Mommie Dearest! But Joseph Cotten's performance of Uncle Charlie (in Shadow of a Doubt) has always stuck with me. Chilling.

Speaking of Joseph Cotten, do I lose gay points if I liked Miriam better than Blanche?

As for mine, I'd pick the ones I wanted to strangle:

Hope Emerson in CAGED
Gladys Cooper in NOW, VOYAGER
Easthampton in GREY GARDENS

I wanted to BE Maleficent!

You have to hand it to him -- he certainly knew how to spruce up that dump, Bedford Falls.

"King Prick of the Eighties: William Atherton (DIE HARD, GHOSTBUSTERS, and his son-of-a-bitch-comic-tour-de-force REAL GENIUS)"

Mayor: "Is this true?"
Peterre: Favorite Movie Villian(s)looking in Peck's direction): "Yes it's true, this man has no dick."

I was reading this article about Ghostbusters and William Atherton said that after the movie came out he was in NY and a school bus full of kids saw him and screamed out to him, "Hey Dickless."

I forgot in my list Peck from Ghostbusters, Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors, Jack Hardemeyer, and Janusz Poha from Ghostbusters II.

I also want to add Voldemort from the Harry Potter Movies and Darth Vader from Star Wars.
