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.

Paok,

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)

Cheers
