Despite losing out to The Fighter‘s Melissa Leo in the race for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar at the Academy Awards, BAFTA-winner Helena Bonham Carter has been named as the most powerful actress in Hollywood in a poll conducted by Sky Movies as part of their Women In Film season.

Other names to make the list include rom-com favourite Jennifer Aniston, two-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep and Oscar host Anne Hathaway, who presumably finds herself included due to her recent casting in The Dark Knight Rises.
