Lars Von Trier
If Lars von Trier's Melancholia wins at the Cannes film festival, he won't be able to accept the award — because he's "persona non grata" in the wake of his comments that he's a Nazi who can "understand" Hitler.
The festival — which awarded the filmmaker its top prize in 2000 for Dancer in the Dark — condemned his remarks, as did Jewish groups, which lauded the event organizers for their actions.
Robin Tunney, Simon Baker
The word game-changer gets thrown around a lot, but The Mentalist's bold Season 3 finale, which finally puts Patrick Jane face to face with serial-killer nemesis Red John, is a giant moment for the CBS drama.
