List Rules Vote for your favorite Olivia Colman movies, regardless of critic reviews or how big the role was.

This list will determine the best Olivia Colman movies. Most likely, best known for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite which won her an Oscar, Olivia Colman also has quite the filmography. With that said, the best Olivia Colman performances will not necessarily come from the greatest movies but most of the time the answer is the same. Therefore, vote up the movies where Olivia Colman acted her best, no matter how big or small the role. Terkel in Trouble is Sophie Turner’s first movie, where she voiced the character of Terkel’s Mother for the English Dub, but she has since been in much larger movies such as the aforementioned The Favourite.

This list of Sophie Turner movies includes Locke, Hot Fuzz, and Hyde Park on Hudson.

With so many great Olivia Colman films to choose from, vote up the ones where you enjoyed Olivia Colman the most to make sure it makes it to the top of the list. Her filmography consists of both dramatic and comedic roles so vote up the movies on the list below not based on how good the movie is but based on how good Olivia Colman is in the role. Check back in for new and recent movies starring Olivia Colman as they come out so you can vote on those as well.
