33. Diane Christensen
played by Faye Dunaway in Network
Beautiful, but ruthless, Diana Christensen is a successful woman working in a man’s world. It would appear that the only way to survive is to be willing to do what the other guy won’t. This includes sleeping with executives to get your way, putting wanted criminals on the air, and even ordering the death of an innocent. She does this all with a manic energy and charisma that few other characters can match.
