What were our top moments of the year? The video below includes just a few. We salute that brave social activist, Kanye West, for standing up for the rights of the tragically ignored Beyonce. We collectively held our breath as a giant silver balloon, purportedly with a 6-year-old child inside, floated over the American heartland. Another nail-biter, this one fictional, ended Lost's fifth season, as Juliet bashed a nuclear bomb with a rock, potentially killing the show's entire cast.

Check out these top moments in the video below, then see many more in our Best of 2009 and Best of the Decade sections.
