"For what? For a little bit of money. There's more to life than a little money, you know. Don'tchya know that? And here ya are, and it's a beautiful day. Well, I just don't understand it." Marge Gunderson

Played By: Frances McDormand
Film: Fargo

Why She's On The List: In stark contrast to pretty much every other movie cop ever, Marge is just about the nicest police officer you're ever likely to meet. But don't be fooled - she's no small town rube, nor does she let being in the final stages of pregnancy stop her from solving an extortion/kidnapping case with a few grisly murderers. One of the Coens' greatest creations, brought to life by Mrs Joel (who was actually pregnant at the time, so a real family affair), she's a perfect creation - with the screenwriting and acting Oscars to prove it.

Finest Hour: Making us believe she's found an important clue in the snow - it's morning sickness.
