If you thought organizing that list of streaming TV shows was difficult, how about going through them to figure out the Best Actors, Actresses, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress?  insanity.  But I got it done.

I couldn’t decide.  I was certain this one was going to Kyle MacLachlan when he was playing basically three completely different characters in Dougie Jones, Mr. C and the one and only Dale Cooper, but then Noah Schanpp blew me away with his tortured performance as Will Byers in Stranger Things 2.  So they will share!

#9. Robin Wright (House of Cards)

#8.  Betty Gilpin (GLOW)

GLOW was such an entertaining show, and it was led by Alison Brie.  She took what could have been a singular character and made her multi-faceted.  Brie became the leader of the GLOW women and she made that show super. 


Best Supporting Actor- Streaming Series

#12.  Michael Horse (Twin Peaks)

#11.  Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things 2)

#10.  David Lynch (Twin Peaks)

#9.  Jimmy Tatro (American Vandal)

Marc Meron is playing a “redeemable asshole” who starts out more concerned about his own career than the woman he has working for him at GLOW.  That changes as the series progresses.  He is a drunk.  He is a smart-mouthed jerk.  But we love him any way. 


Best Supporting Actor- Streaming Series

#12.  Hannah Gross (Mindhunter)

#11.  Karly Rothenberg (American Vandal)

#10.  Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist)

#9.  Lea DeLaria (Orange is the New Black)

#8.  Emily Browning (American Gods)

#7.  Wai Ching Ho (The Defenders)

#6.  Liv Henson (Santa Clarita Diet)

#5.  Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black)

#4. Catharine Coulson (Twin Peaks: The Return)

#3.  Naomi Watts (Twin Peaks: The Return)

#2.  Laura Dern (Twin Peaks: The Return)…. I am sure Diane would say… “F**k you, EYG”

#1.  Gillian Anderson (American Gods)

Gillian Anderson appeared as Marilyn Monroe, David Bowie, Lucy Ricardo, Scarlett O’Hara in American Gods.  Her actual character’s name is Media, one of the new world Gods that opposed Odin and the old gods.  Either way, Anderson’s performances as these iconic people are some of the best moments of the series.
