I would definitely have put Nichelle Nichols on this list. Kathryn Bigelow? I had to go back and read her segment two more times. What in her resume says "sci-fi"? Maybe if the list was Top 10 Most Influential Women in Film, I could see her inclusion, but none of the examples you cite are even remotely science fiction.

Also, you left Incredible Hulk out of Liv Tyler's list of accomplishments. While I think Jennifer Connelly is hotter, Liv Tyler made a better Betty Ross.

Ok, I missed Strange Days in there. But still...  One movie? And she gets the nod ahead of Uhura?

Jolie is not influential. she is a hack actress, and not everyone thinks she is hot.  Slutty yes but not HOT.  Linda Hamilton scores hotter on my "thermometer" any day!

This is without a doubt the most poorly thought out list I've ever read on this site.

Not only should Nichelle Nichols be on this list... she should be in the top 3. And yes, as everyone else has pointed out, Sigourney Weaver should be higher!!

Let me give an example of the how bad this list is...

Highlander 2 was so bad it ruined Highlander for many fans. This list is so off base it damages the validity of other lists posted elsewhere on the site. I understand this list is an opinion, however, it is clearly uninformed and born through ZERO research.

I've come to expect better from this site. I miss cinescape.com now.

Sigourney Weaver should have been ranked higher.

Linda Carter for Wonder Woman.

Maybe Linsay Wagner for Bionic Woman

Mason Brown, you just lost ALL of your credibility with me> Jolie number 1? GTFOOH. I think this list should be in reverse order.

Sigourney Weaver and Linda Hamilton are both miles ahead of Angelina Jolie. Yes Angelina Jolie is smokin hot.... but without Weaver or Hamilton, Jolie may never have had the opportunity to begin with. Their influence is without question, Jolies is.....  Liv Tyler? Really? Great trilogy, but her role wasn't inluential at all. This list needs a MAJPR revision

Yes, I agree with all the other people who said Nichelle Nichols. She was one of the first strong, female characters in Sci Fi. Before her, most women in Sci Fi were screaming, damsels in distress. Angelina Jolie is too new to be on the list. Wait 10 years to see if she had a real influence. As far as I'm concerned she's merely the inheritor of more pioneering Sci Fi heroines such as Uhura, Ripley, and Sarah Conner, that is, Jolie's characters are just coat-tail riders.

Oh, Mary Shelley wrote her first version of Frankenstein in 1818, and later published a revised and expanded addition in 1831. By 1881, she had been dead for 30 years. It might lend a little more credibility to your articles, if you perform a little, EASY fact checking. Saying she wrote Frankenstein in 1881 is like saying Bram Stoker wrote Dracula in 1947.

Kathryn Bigelow doesn't have much of a sci-fi resume. I get the feeling she is mentioned here because of the Hurt Locker (an non sci-fi film)

She is still great for the little things she has done. I still can't get over the fact she is 58 years old! She looks great for 58.
