(David: I await your missive.)

Be sure to submit your nomination(s) as soon as possible.

Warning: The software I use for polling allows for only 10 options.

[Post-publication addendum (April 17): More nominations from readers (in alphabetical order): Majel Barrett, Candace Bergen, Halle Berry, Cher [Ed.: I respectfully dissent.], Kim Delaney, Bo Derek, Joan Fontaine, Melanie Griffith, Susan Hayward, Paris Hilton, Ruby Keeler, Juliette Lewis [Ed.: I respectfully dissent.], Marsha Mason, Ali McGraw, Liza Minnelli, Ashley Olsen, Mary Kate Olsen, Molly Ringwald, Doris Roberts, Lana Turer, Virginia Weidler, Pia Zadora, and Renée Zellweger. And don’t worry, there eventually will be a similar poll for worst actor.]

[Post-publication addendum (April 17): Meanwhile, don’t forget to vote in this week’s poll, posted in the sidebar at right, “Who is the most dishonest member of the Bush administration?” I know it’s hard to choose, and you really can only vote once, but try to choose among the following (in alphabetical order): John Ashcroft, George W. Bush, Elaine Chao, Dick Cheney, Scott McClellan, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and Donald Rumsfeld. Voting in this poll runs through Tuesday, April 20.]

[Post-publication addendum (April 19): Additional nominations from readers: Sandra Bullock, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Andie MacDowell, Demi Moore, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Meanwhile, noted film historian -- and blogger -- David Ehrenstein, submits the following nominations (in alphabetical order): Elizabeth Berkley, Leslie Browne, Courtney Cox, Samantha Morton, Julia Ormond, Gloria Talbot, and Nia Vardalos.]
