11. Coming Up Short Award:
Everyone's got a gimmick on America's Got Talent. For one diminutive impersonator, that means dressing up as one of the judges' husbands and singing a song that was written about her! Thus, the aptly named Little Ozzy croons "Mama, I'm Coming Home," much to Sharon Osbourne's delight. "I have to tell you something. My husband is away from me right now, and it made me miss him even more by you singing me that song, so I really thank you," she says. But a compliment is all Little Ozzy gets, as he fails to... read more

Theon Greyjoy, Reality Star? Game of Thrones Cast Picks Who Deserves a Spin-Off

Jack Gleeson, Alfie Allen

Wonder Woman! Dad! Game of Thrones Stars Choose Their Hand of the King

Wonder Woman, Peter Dinklage

Even if you don't end up murdered like Ned Stark or Jon Arryn before him, acting as the Hand of the King is a thankless job.

As Game of Thrones approaches its Season 2 finale Sunday (9/8c, HBO), the cast of the period-fantasy series weighs in on arguably the most powerful job in the Seven Kingdoms: The Hand of the King (or Queen, as it were). The Hand acts as chief advisor, executes the ruler's commands, is in charge of the army, drafts laws, dispenses justices, handles the day-to-day running of the kingdom, sits on the small council and even sits upon the Iron Throne to act on the king's behalf when he is indisposed (or hunting wild boar).

The TV Season's Winners and Losers

Kat Dennings, Simon Cowell

The 2011-2012 TV season ended with a whimper, as all five broadcast networks posted year-to-year drops in viewership during May sweeps. But the season as a whole wasn't too bad: Sure, some big swings (Pan Am, Terra Nova) missed, but a solid 15 freshman shows (out of 45) were renewed. Here's a roundup of this year's winners and losers.
