22 Movie Heroines Not Included At The Oscars

The "Heroes" montage shown at Sunday's Academy Awards was sorely lacking in women. Here are 22 women that producers should have included.

Posted on

1. Emma Watson as Hermione Granger

We all know Harry would have never survived his First Year without her!

2. Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

Same goes with Princess Leia and her boys

3. Liv Tyler as Arwen in The Lord of the Rings

Without her, Frodo wouldn't have survived the first 2 hours of the first movie, the ring would have been taken to Sauron, and Middle Earth would have been destroyed.

4. Miranda Otto as Eowyn in Lord of the Rings

She just takes care of the Witch King like it's no big deal!

9. Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in The Heat

The Oscar's montage featured other "Buddy Cop" films, but not this one!

10. Hilary Swank as Maggie Fitzgerald in Million Dollar Baby

If Rocky is a hero than Maggie sure as hell is.

11. Hilary Swank as Alice Paul and Frances O'Connor as Lucy Burns in Iron Jawed Angels

These women led the women's suffrage movement, were imprisoned, force fed, and mistreated all for women to vote. HBO made this movie showing their story.

13. Shirley Temple

She is the reason the world didn't end in the 1940s

14. Ingrid Bergman as Ilsa Lund in Casablanca

They showed Humphrey Bogart, but no Bergman. The only reason Rick or anyone else does anything in this movie is because of this girl!

15. Grace Kelly as Lisa Carol Fremont in Rear Window

She snuck into a murderer's apartment and saved the day in Rear Window.

16. Julie Andrews as Maria in Sound of Music

Saved children from crazy father, saved father from crazy self, saved entire family from Nazis. Hero.

17. Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins

Saved children from crazy father, saved father from crazy self, no Nazis but SHE FLIES. Hero

20. Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods

Saved an innocent woman from murder charge with knowledge of beauty products. If Kevin Bacon is a hero than Elle Woods definitely is!

21. Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray

This girl broke down all kind of barriers.
