(NOTE: In my dreams, celebrities usually appear as conflations of themselves and the characters they play. So if a dream takes place in a movie or TV show, then its characters are usually also the actors that play them. There a few exceptions: animated characters generally are not counted this way, as they don’t tend to have this same conflated quality. So, an appearance by Peter Griffin would not also count as an appearance by Seth MacFarlane. Also, for fictional characters that have had multiple iterations: an appearance by James Bond counts as an appearance by Daniel Craig only if it is the version of Bond as played by Craig.)

The two top dream appearers in 2019 with some degree of fame were the hosts of the podcast Blank Check with Griffin and David, Griffin Newman and David Sims. But since these guys are acquaintances of mine, it feels weird to include them in my list of dream celebrities. So I’ve created a special category entitled “Celebrities Emeritus.” Also included in this category is 5-time Jeopardy! champion Steven Grade, whom I knew before his J! run.

As for the top performers besides those fellows, it’s a mixed, motley crew representing a wide range of the entertainment spectrum
