Charlie Harper, 'Two And A Half Men' Choosing Kathy Bates to play Charlie Sheen's former character was brilliant and was recognized as such with an Emmy Award.
Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, 'Doctor Who' A nice way to keep the heritage of the Brigadier alive......
Spartacus, 'Spartacus: Vengeance'The fact that the recasting had the blessings of Andy Whitfield before he died, so that all the people on the crew could stay employed, drives this choice.
CHILD TO ADULT (OR IN THIS CASE, VICE VERSA)Leslie Knope, 'Park & Recreation' We got to see Leslie as a little girl and that little girl showed all the promise of the grown-up Miss Knope.
BEST NEW SUPPORTING FEMALE CHARACTER
Ellen Barkin, "The New Normal"
She really knows how to sling the acidic barbs without becoming totally hateful.
BEST NEW RECURRING MALE CHARACTER
Brian Williams, 'Doctor Who'I can only hope that the exit of Rory Williams from the show doesn't mean we won't ever see his father again.
BEST ADDITION TO AN EXISTING CAST
Megan Draper - 'Mad Men'
She had a small recurring role in last season - whenever the hell that was! - but things had to kick into gear once Don married her. And she has proven to be invaluable, everything that Betty Draper could never be. Megan has provided several of the most memorable moments in this season......
BEST NEW GUEST APPEARANCE
Will O' The Wisp, 'Lost Girl'
Just funny in a grade school way in how he caused explosive fires......
BEST HISTORICAL CHARACTERQueen Nefertiti, 'Doctor Who'What a little vixen!
BEST NEW CHILD CHARACTER
MALEJake Bohm, 'Touch'Maybe there wasn't much for him to do in physical emoting, but he delivered in the voice-overs.
FEMALEShania Clemmons, 'The New Normal'Awkward but perceptive, she holds her own against so many older and more experienced actors around her.
CHARACTER MOST DESERVING TO BECOME A REGULAR
Bobby Newport, 'Parks & Recreation'Not likely to happen, more from a perspective outside the Box, but also because of the election's outcome. Still, Paul Rudd fit right in to the world of Pawnee.
BEST NEW COMMERCIAL CHARACTER
The Daves, "Dave's World" for Staples
BEST LEAGUE OF THEMSELVES APPEARANCE
Bo Derek, 'Chuck' ("Chuck vs. Bo")So evil, yet so good!
James Van Der Beek ('Don't Trust The B In Apartment 23')
BEST LEAGUE OF THEMSELVES APPEARANCE IN SKITLANDIA
Lindsay Lohan, "Scared Straight" sketch, 'Saturday Night Live'
BEST LEAGUE OF THEMSELVES APPEARANCE IN THE TOONIVERSE
Burt Reynolds, 'Archer'
BEST CHARACTER RETURN
Elizabeth Bishop, 'Fringe'
Dead in Earth Prime-Time and its reboot, but alive "Over There", the wife of Walter and the mother of Peter crossed over to the reboot world to plead for Walter's help in getting the third version of their son back to his Earth Prime-Time. ("The Enemy Of My Enemy")
The Great Intelligence, 'Doctor Who'Of course it helps that, even though we never actually "saw" it, the Great Intelligence was voiced by Sir Ian McKellan! ("The Snowmen")
BEST INTRODUCTION OF A REGULAR CHARACTER
Oswin Oswald, 'Doctor Who'And that's even though she died at the end! (Screw the spoiler alert - you should have seen it!) I'm not sure how this will play out, especially now that we've met the late Clara Oswald, and seen her contemporary counterpart. But I trust in Moffatt.
BEST NEW ALIENS
I don't have a choice this year. Not many choices anymore in Toobworld with many sci-fi shows disappearing. Not even 'Doctor Who' came through on this score - the Kahler were just humanoids with Borg tech on their faces.
BEST NEW ALIEN VILLAINThe Shakri and its Cubes, 'Doctor Who'
BEST NEW VILLAIN[TIE]
Sir Richard Carlisle, 'Downton Abbey'
He just needed a mustache to twirl.
Tommy Voelker, 'The Mentalist'His payoff will be in 2013, but that chilling final shot of him was the embodiment of evil.
BEST EXIT FOR A CHARACTER
CSI Catherine Willows from 'CSI'
BEST EXIT FOR A LEAGUE OF THEMSELVES MEMBER
Kristen Wiig, 'Saturday Night Live'Watching her dance with each of the cast members still chokes me up. (The video that was embedded in that blog post no longer exists. I don't know why NBC would want to hide it away.....)
BEST "DEATH" SCENEAmy and Rory Williams, 'Doctor Who'They didn't die, per se, but were sent back in Time by a Weeping Angel, far enough so that they were dead by contemporary times. So there was something hopeful in that they got to live out their lives together to a ripe old age.
SADDEST DEATH SCENE
Dr. Holly Martens, 'Eureka'
Even though they found a way to bring her back to a virtual existence, there was something cold and ruthless in the way she was disconnected from the Matrix.
WORST (GRISLIEST) DEATH SCENE
'Fringe' - "The Enemy Of My Enemy"
The 16 people who died in a hospital wing "Over There" when subjected to a mysterious gas by an ally of Mr. Jones
BEST NEW CHARACTER NAME
Anita Mandelay, 'The Mentalist'
Go ahead. Sound it out.
WORST NEW CHARACTER NAMEXaro Xhoan Daxo, 'Game Of Thrones' (once again)I've seen one critic just give up on trying to remember it (or spell it) and instead called him "Ducksauce".
BEST USE OF A CHARACTER'S NAME
STILL more to come!
