Fans might know Madonna as the "Queen of Pop" with her tendency to redefine and challenge music norms. However, she is also exceptionally talented in acting and has appeared in a few films before. While her attempt at acting may not be as successful as the established ones, she is still out there confident to take a crack at anything she believes she can achieve and even got a few awards.
This might be the lowest rated out of all the movies she was in, but it was perhaps the most memorable. For the role of Eva Perón, Madonna was able to bag the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. The film was based on a musical inspired by the wife of President Juan Perón.
Dick Tracy (1990)
In this film, Madonna plays the cabaret singer Breathless Mahoney. She is more interested in winning the famous detective's heart than putting an end to a syndicate. Since the film was based on a comic strip, Madonna was surrounded by actors who had prosthetics in them to reflect the comic characters. Again, the popstar received a nomination for Best Actress at the Saturn Awards.
The Universe of Keith Haring (2008)
Madonna was included as one of the prominent figures who was interviewed in this documentary.

A League of Their Own (1992)
While Madonna was not one of the stars in this film, she and Rosie O'Donnell were part of the supporting cast that made the movie more enjoyable. It is about a candy maker who created a professional baseball league with female members due to the lack of male players. The Queen of Pop was one of the athletes in the team named Mae Mordabito.
This documentary was about fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, known for fashion lines named after himself. There were plenty of high-fashion models and artists who made an appearance in the film - Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, and Madonna, to name a few. It was expected for the pop singer to make her way here because she is an influential figure not only in music but also in fashion as well.
Desperately Seeking Susan (1985)
Madonna plays Susan, a mysterious and carefree woman in this comedy-drama film. This was also the popstar's first significant screen role. Roberta Glass, portrayed by Rosanna Arquette, was following Susan's misadventures until one day, the fan decided to stalk the enigmatic woman. Not soon after, things did not go as planned as the two got their identity mixed.
