Live Poll: The Most Wonderful Hollywood Actress Aged 55+

Intro:

A look in modern media. There is a common sense of delusion about
everybody has to be young. Commercials mostly show 25 year old anorexia
models without facial wrinkles, completely clean and they look like a perfect designed cyborg, made of plastic.

When you look at Sir Sean Connery or Sean Bean you might realize that some people don't have to follow that delusion, because of their rich and lovely personality. They mature like an extraordinary good vine, e.g. from Petrus vineyards. The older they get, the better they look, the more attractive they are. This also counts for many actresses. Now look at the actresses 55+ of age. Which of these actresses below did most grow to you heart or simply which of them do you most admire? (Please avoid to let their sense of taste for clothing or makeup at events influence your decision.) Tell me about her.

Rules:

She has to be or have been popular.
She should be 55+ (I don't count on a few weeks difference, but not more than 3 month)
She should still live, the day it really becomes a poll. (in case of accidents, etc.)
She should also be a movie actress

List:

It's so hard with all these great actresses, but I stay with Michelle Pfeiffer

I had no idea Sandra Bullock was over 55 - she looks great!  So does Elvira.

I suggest Julia Duffy, of Newhart/Designing Women.  https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0240564/
Not only has she aged well, she is a very talented and funny actress.

Thank you, NIA. :D
Sandra Bullock is still 54 years old. She has her next birthday at July, 26. That's just a few weeks, but I let it count up to 3 month. It might take a little time till the List may become a poll, but in a little more than a month, Sandra is 55 y.o. I love our German lady, even met her at the premiere of "The Proposal" for wich she came to Germany. She's really a nice and kind person. So I wanted her to be on the list. ;)
If there are a few ladys on the list, which turn 55+ only within three month, the world will still turn. ;D And three month later, the title surely fits for all of them.

BTW, I think Julia Duffy was in some movies; just realized that was one of the requirements!  :D

I would prefer some more black actresses. This list again turns out to be so white. But maybe there is a fabulous black or mexican or one more asien actress?

Hard to choose, but I'm somewhere between Julianne Moore, Jennifer Beals, and Penelope Ann Miller

I'll put her to the list. My problem now is to decide, which of these strong women has to quit because of the 35 options limitation. ;)

I love that poll. It seems that attitude towards age slowly shifts and that's great.

For now it's just a suggestion. I hope it will become a poll. It's seems to be popular, when I look at the many suggestions of other users. :D

She looks a little like a well aged scream queen. I'll think about her, but Nikolay, you must admit - there are already strong ladies on the list. I would tend more to take another black, asien or mexican woman on the list (for diversity). :D
