Why...so...serious?! :D Just recommend/suggest the names that you felt should be added on the list.
[There is no particular order; added & ranked them randomly]
This is a simplest way to give a little tribute to all those amazing women for their undeniable daring efforts to making a scene in the movie or an entire film so special for us. I'm not an expert on their field of works but just a fan who is trying to show some respect.
As far I noticed, there is only 1 or 2 similar list is available on IMDB & very few on the web. So the 'nerds & experts' who thinks this list is ridiculous or funny, I'm suggesting & requesting you to go, spend your time & make a better one than this as long as you care so much.
Please keep the recommendations coming. I've already changed the listing several times based on the recs as I'm trying to add all the deserving ones chosen by the fans or 'experts'.
Btw, regretfully I'm excluding those who still haven't add any picture to their IMDB profile; No pic...No entry!
Keep up the good work, ladies! We love you all. Thank You:)
