From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama was first awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association as a separate category in 1951. Previously, there was a single award for "Best Actress in a Motion Picture" but the splitting allowed for recognition of it and the Best Actress – Musical or Comedy.

The formal title has varied since its inception. In 2005, it was officially called: "Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama". As of 2013, the wording is "Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama".

Notes:

  • "†" indicates an Academy Award-winning performance.
  • indicates an Academy Award nomination.
  • "§" indicates a Golden Globe Award-winning performance that was not nominated for an Academy Award.
  • 50s indicates actors who died in the 1950s
  • 60s indicates actors who died in the 1960s
  • 70s indicates actors who died in the 1970s
  • 80s indicates actors who died in the 1980s
