I love TV, if you couldn’t tell already ūüôā ¬†I have been watching TV for a very long time and I wanted to share my two cents on who I think are the very best of the best. ¬†Without these individuals and their contributions, TV would be an ¬†empty and boring place. ¬†Many of these are¬†supporting actors whose work can go unrecognized, but the reality is that without them the shows they work for would likely fail. ¬†I hope that they are properly recognized by the people and organizations for whom¬†they work. ¬†I am not a follower of awards shows, but here are my humble opinions:

1. ¬†Vanessa Ray who plays Officer Edit Jenko on “Blue Bloods” on CBS. ¬†I just love this girl. ¬†She is so real, so authentic. ¬†She can be cute, she can be angry, she has such a range of abilities, and they are all believable. ¬†I never once think “this is an actress.” ¬†There are so many shows today where emotion seems to have been removed from the acting. ¬†Humans are emotional beings (the healthy, normal ones), so seeing her bring this range of real emotional expression to the screen is a joy.

2. ¬†Guillermo Diaz who plays Huck on the hit drama “Scandal” on ABC. ¬†He is extremely talented. ¬†I think his work could¬†be overlooked because of the role that he plays, but the episodes¬†which have featured him have been some of the best TV or movie work that I have ever seen. ¬†Captivating. ¬†Real. ¬†Intense. ¬†Scary.

3. ¬†Eden Sher, who plays Sue Sue Heck on “The Middle” on ABC is amazing and holds the show together. ¬†While all of the actors on this show are excellent, she is the best in my opinion (Patricia Heaton is a close second). ¬†She consistently brings the energy and weirdness her character demands, while also showing her¬†softer side at times.

4. ¬†Emily Bett Rickards who plays Felicity Smoak on “Arrow” on WB. ¬†This girl just made being nerdy cool! ¬†She’s so believable and has brought this character to a place where she is a positive role model for all females.

There you have it TV fans! ¬†My top picks for TV actors in my currently watched shows. ¬†Who are your favorites? ¬†Please share in the comments section, I’d love to know!
