I actually couldn't vote because I couldn't choose between them. When you're at that level of greatness, ranking becomes just arbitrary.
Were they distantly related?
They weren't related.
Kate, of course. Audrey was a lightweight.
I don't like either.
Both leave me cold
Katherine Hepburn was the greatest actress. She was fascinating, interesting; she had personality; she was a Hollywood legend and defined the term 'movie star.'
Audrey was great at grace and refinement. She was a star, but she didn't have the presence and stature of the great Kate.
I like them both, but I give the edge to Kate, if only for "The Lion in Winter."
Audrey was one of the few actresses who could make Kate seem completely unaffected.

Right, Audrey was rather twee.

True, at least Katharine wasn't quite so wishy-washy.
Audrey was utterly charming, but Kate made more great films.
Audrey never made anything like "The African Queen".
Audrey did more social work than Kate, who was admittedly very self-centered. At least Audrey did UNICEF. Plus, she seemed like a nicer person all-around.

Not so, K. Hepburn gave $$ to Planned Parenthood and was supergenerous with her staff, many of whom stayed with her for DECADES.

Katharine definitely ruined more potentially great movies by appearing in them. Audrey's filmography was less extensive, so she ultimately played fewer parts that would've been better played by another actress.
