Phew that's a hell of a slog getting that done

It's actually Carrie Snodgress, not Snodgrass.

It doesn't even accept Mary Pickford, who WON the second best actress Oscar awarded. Please proofread/edit all your answers to make sure they are correct and spelled correctly.

Read the description, then we'll talk.

Double check the spelling for Margaret Sullivan.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 14:46 GMT
Double checked - it is actually Sullavan with an A.
Feb 28th, 2011 at 23:21 GMT
My bad, I thought it was an i.

Was 1969 the first year where all 5 actresses were being nominated for the first time in this category?

Great quiz, men are next?
Mar 6th, 2011 at 19:20 GMT
You've misspelled 'Renée."

I'm ashamed about some of the ones I missed. Will try again tomorrow. Thanks for taking the time and effort to create this.

By the way, you should do these for supporting actors/actresses too.

A great quiz, but there is one actress missing unless I'm blind. I've looked a few times, but I can't find Mary Pickford in here. She was the second Best Actress winner and a founding member of the Academy. I definitely agree with the others though; make one for the other categories!
Mar 12th, 2011 at 15:10 GMT
Mary Pickford isnt on here because she won in 1929. There was only enough room to include actresses who were nominated in 1930 and onwards. See the description.
Apr 12th, 2011 at 11:45 GMT
yeah, was wondering why Gaynor was included, and Pickford wasn't but Gaynor was nominated again in 1938 so you are absolutely correct, i love this quiz - play it often...
Apr 15th, 2011 at 20:34 GMT
Since no one's said it, it's "Diana" W___ard, not Diane.
Apr 25th, 2011 at 00:35 GMT
When are you going to edit the quiz to include 2010, or is there not enough room?
May 5th, 2011 at 18:34 GMT
@jmpatison003 - not enough room, unless I get rid of some of the older nominees. Worth it?
May 26th, 2011 at 11:29 GMT
It's 'Eagels' not 'Eagles.'
May 29th, 2011 at 20:52 GMT
@jimmers_205 - I did read the description as currently posted. It reads as follows: "Can you name the every single person who has been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar from 1927-2010?" And the quiz's title, at least on the quiz list and as shown below, is "Every single Best Actress nominee EVER." So while it's a very good quiz and obviously took a lot of work on your part, I don't think that I and the others who pointed out Mary Pickford's absence are mistaken in this case.

@sharpdale - quiz has been changed since then to include all the nominees. Before it was only 1930-2009.
Jun 4th, 2011 at 01:27 GMT
Okay, I think I'm up to date now (well, at least as much as I ever am). I still think it's a VERY good quiz, and I applaud the exceptional amount of work you had to have invested in it.
Dec 30th, 2011 at 03:42 GMT
This is very stimulating. Can definitely be played much more than once. Any plans to do one for the directors?

Mar 5th, 2012 at 19:44 GMT
great quiz :3
Jan 25th, 2013 at 23:52 GMT
Can you update this to include the most recent nominees?
Apr 11th, 2013 at 03:28 GMT
Needs updating to maintain it's title of "Every" and "EVER"
