Silence of the Lambs
As we get closer to the Oscars, we thought it would be fun to look back on some favorite performances from years past.
Whether you prefer Anthony Hopkins scaring you senseless in Silence of the Lambs or Titanic breaking your heart, we want to hear from you.
Tell us: What are the greatest film performances of all time? Share your picks and tell us why after the jump.
Alex O'Loughlin, Moonlight
It happens all the time: Your favorite TV star's show gets cancelled and he or she disappears for a while.
Or sometimes, you keep seeing awesome actors hop from one show to the next in small guest arcs or supporting roles, but they never get the chance to carry a show. Well now is the time to stand up and give these folks the credit they deserve.
We want to know: Who would you give a show to right now? Whether it's a dreamy hunk like ex-Moonlight star Alex O'Loughlin or a solid backseat actor like Damages Anastasia Griffith, who would you as a potential network exec want to put your money on?
Tell us which actor gets your vote and why after the jump.
Kate Walsh, Patrick Dempsey
Now that ABC's Grey's Anatomy-Private Practice crossover event is underway, we thought it'd be fun to play TV programmer.
Networks often use crossovers to bolster recent spin-offs, and persuade the unconvinced to try out new series. Other switches, like the recent CSI-Two and a Half Men writers' swap, are just for fun — and publicity. The results are sometimes awesome (ER's Clooney and Wyle popping up on Friends), and sometimes pathetic (Family Matters' Steve Urkel landing his time machine in Step by Step's backyard in ABC's TGIF days).
So we want to know: What TV crossovers would you like to see?
Keep in mind that this sort of thing usually happens between shows on the same network. But if you have a really clever idea that crosses network lines, we'd love to hear it. We're also thinking mostly about series currently on the air, but if you can find of a (workable) reason for the Supernatural boys to investigate a murder at Shotz Brewery, fire away.

Joss Whedon with Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku
Joss Whedon, the singular mind who in the past has given us Buffy, Angel, "Captain Tightpants" and Dr. Horrible soon will introduce television viewers to another memorable (if "forgetful" character) — Dollhouse's Echo, played by Eliza Dushku. Echo is an "active," a kind of a robot-hooker hybrid whose native personality and memories have been erased, allowing her to be programmed with the specific skills or characteristics that any "engagement" — or client with a robust checkbook — requires.
As the Feb. 13 series premiere of Fox's Dollhouse nears, Whedon will be dropping by TVGuide.com HQ to answer not just our questions but many of yours. So take a moment, give it some thought and offer up the one thing you would ask Joss — on any topic — after the jump.
Lil Wayne, John Mayer
You've already told us which ladies you're backing in the Grammy races this year. Now it's the fellas' turn.
The year's biggest music awards show is just around the corner, and we'd like to know which artist you're hoping will take home a golden phonograph or two. Were you more captivated by the rhymes of Lil Wayne of Kanye? Who is smoother: Chris Brown or Ne-Yo? Does John Mayer still make your body feel all "Wonderland"-ish or do you prefer the harder edge of Kid Rock and Metallica?
So tell us: Which Grammy-nominated male artist is your favorite? Vote in our poll after the jump.
The Grammys are drawing nigh, and while we, the
buying downloading public, don't necessarily cast a vote for who walks home with the golden phonographs, we'd still like to know which artist you're supporting this year.
Are you under the spell of R&B queen Beyonce, or are you still a loyal Madonna devotee after all these years? Did you crank up the volume every time you heard newcomers Katy Perry and Adele's catchy tunes, or do you prefer to jam to Rihanna's chock-full-of-singles album?
Tell us: Which Grammy-nominated female artist is your favorite? Vote in our poll after the jump.
Barack and Michelle Obama
The inauguration of Barack Obama has included festivities such as a train ride from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. and HBO's We Are One inaugural kickoff party. Of course, the extended celebration during the run-up to the historic swearing in of the 44th president has featured plenty of memorable moments.
So, we want to know: What has been your favorite moment from the Obama inauguration. Tell us after the jump.
Grey's Anatomy, House
November is almost over, and with its closing comes the end of another TV sweeps period.

Tell us after the jump!
John Noble, Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv, Fringe
I'm going to be speaking with some of the powers that be over at Fringe, so I need your burning questions about J.J. Abrams' Fox spookfest. I have a few swimming around in my noggin, but I'd love to ask them yours as well. Here's what I've got so far:
Halloween is one of the few times a year when people actually enjoy being frightened. Whether kicking back with your favorite scary movie of visiting the local haunted house, the thrill of a good scare is undeniable.
But do you remember those days as a kid when it didn't take much more than some loud music and ugly face paint to haunt you at night? Did even cartoons like Scooby-Doo or comedies like Young Frankenstein spook you more than they should have?
If so, we want to know: What TV or movie moments scared you as a kid that, looking back, you just can't explain?
