Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's should be on the list. Romance is one of the three genre choices for this film.
There are over 200 nominated actresses in romance movies, and that's only countig the leading category. You need some other parameters to cut off some of them or make several lists.
@Pencho15 I changed the list to Oscar winning actresses
Emma Stone in La La Land
Emma Thompson in Howards End
Jessica Tandy in Driving Miss Daisy
Ellen Burstyn in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl
Glenda Jackson in Women in Love
Marlee Matlin in Children of a Lesser God
Jane Fonda in Coming Home
Elizabeth Taylor in BUtterfield 8
Greer Garson in Mrs. Miniver
Bette Davis in Jezebel
Ingrid Bergman in Anastasia
Judy Holliday in Born Yesterday
Anna Magnani in The Rose Tatoo
Glenda Jackson in A Touch of Class
Loretta Young in The Farmer's Daughter
Janet Gyanor in 7th Heaven
Ginger Rogers in Kitty Foyle
Mary Pickford in Coquette
Katharine Hepburn in Morning Glory
Bette Davis in Dangerous
Olivia de Havilland in To Each his Own
Norma Shearer in The Divorcee
Simone Signoret in Room at the Top
All of them winners in comedy movies.
You might need to delete supporting actresses to make room for all of them
Even if we consider the word in a broader sense, "Driving Miss Daisy" is a beautiful friendship story but not a romance, unless you mean "emotional attachment" but then again there might be other winning performances that apply.
"'Mrs. Miniver" showed a true love between a woman and her husband but if there ever was a romance it was accessory to the film or maybe the real romance was the relationship between the son and Teresa Wright.
I'm not sure either about "Anastasia", there's the usual aristocratic courtship etc. but it's not exactly remembered as a romantic film.Some options FYC:
Holly Hunter in "The Piano" (the romance is with Harvey Keitel not Sam Neil)Hillary Swank in "Boys Don't Cry" (definitely a romance with Chloé Sevigny)Marion Cotillard in "La Vie en Rose" (not one but many romances and if only for that 'Marcel' scene she deserves to be there)
