The Sci-Fi Queen?[edit]

The article claims "Weaver acquired the nickname of the Sci-Fi Queen for her numerous contributions to science-fiction film history, ....". Should this be removed? I have found articles claiming this but it's still rather opinionated and disputable.--Ozzyofpi (talk) 20:58, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

The list of works in that sentence also includes a reference to Finding Dory, which is pretty difficult to consider a science fiction movie. Unless anyone objects, I'm going to remove that title from the list. Webster100 (talk) 06:51, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
She has been frequently referenced as such (though, I usually hear it as "the Queen of Sci-Fi") so this reference probably should be rescued from deletion. I just did a google search with "the queen of sci-fi" in quotation marks, and not only does quite a long list of articles from reliable sources pop up (most with both the search term and Weaver's name in the title), but Google also displays an information box of Sigourney Weaver on the side (even though her name was not used in the search) so there is something in Google's algorithm triggering the association. One of those many articles from established news sources should have enough information on the topic to be used as a citation. — al-Shimoni (talk) 21:12, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Worth adding mention?[edit]

New lead image proposal[edit]

I think we should change the lead image to this. It’s more recent, it looks less odd, and it’s a looser crop, which is preferred for bios. Thoughts? The Image Editor (talk) 17:15, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
