Calling all crazies! 

From Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl to Uzo Aduba in Orange Is the New Black, crazy female characters have been stealing the spotlight as of late on both the boob tube and the silver screen. 

A number of talented actresses, including Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman, have garnered Academy Awards for their portrayals of crazy characters, and most recently, Pike was nominated for an Oscar for her role as stunning psychopath Amy Dunne.

But it's not just the latest flicks that have incorporated crazy characters—Naomi Watts gave a chilling performance as a Hollywood hopeful in 2001's Mulholland Drive while 1992's Single White Female left us forever terrified of our future roommates. 

So, in honor of Tinsel Town's top leading ladies, we're taking a look back at the top 9 crazy girl characters while applauding the actresses who so powerfully portrayed them. 

"I just wanted to put something in her body in terms of how she walks, how she stands, that was very interesting and important to me…" Uzo Abuda, who took home an Emmy for her portrayal of Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren," previously said of her character. "I was really interested in her just being a hair off, everything she does it's a little more heightened and then it found its way up into the face and then there she was." 

Press play to see who landed the top spot—and then hit the comments to tell us if you agree!
