Ten is a round, perfect and predictable number. In the spirit of Spinal Tap, this list goes to eleven. Here are my selections for the best of the small screen in 2010:
Favorite episode of season 6: “What They Died For”
Those who absolutely loved the series finale will defend it forever, and those who loathed it will argue with the same fervor. After watching the final episode several times, I strongly feel as though Damon, Carlton & co. gifted their dedicated fans with a finale that exceeded expectations and will continue to inspire many of us for the rest of our lives. The flash sideways memory revelations (Jin & Sun and Juliet & Sawyer in particular), the long overdue father & son Shephard reunion and those last ten minutes in the church were extremely satisfying on every level.
2. Breaking Bad
Favorite episode of season 3: “Fly”
The ability to create and sustain »

With our favorite prime time shows on hiatus, TV Fanatic is taking a look back at some buzzed-about programs and grading their performance this fall, with a look toward 2011.
Previously this week, we gave a B to Glee. Up now: The Good Wife.
Best episode: "Nine Hours." The drama wrapped up 2010 with an hour that encapsulated all we love about this show. Alicia and company's race to save a death row inmate featured suspense, touches of humor and character developments that fit organically into a tight, interesting case.
Best character: I continue to love Cary. For a series that constantly treads in grey areas, this lawyer epitomizes how well The Good Wife paints multi-layered individual. Is he good at his job? Yes. Does he know that? Oh yes. Is he a tad smarmy? Definitely. But does he have reason to be bitter? I'd say so.
Might he and Kalina hook up? »

The Satellite Awards were presented on Sunday and if you didn’t think the awards season was in full swing before, you’re bound to believe it now.
Mixing in some of the patented Golden Globes wackiness with the holding pattern of the Emmys, the Satellite Awards had some of the more intriguing results in recent award show memory. Breaking Bad rebounded from its Globes snub for best drama and took down a gauntlet of worthy opponents, Connie Britton (!!) proved that there’s nothing that can keep Tami Taylor down in claiming her first major award for Friday Night Lights, and Bryan Cranston’s winning streak for playing Walter White continues to impress.
And that’s just on the drama side of things.

Today the nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards was released. The King’s Speech and The Fighter received the most nominations, with four each. Thankfully the Guild seems to know what they are doing unlike The Golden Globes who pretty much screwed up all the nominations.
The nominees here are usually a very strong indication of how the acting award nominees will play out at the Oscars. King’s Speech has long been an Oscar favourite, but David O. Russell’s The Fighter has gained considerable steam in the past few weeks. Last year, 19 out of 20 SAG nominees went to the Oscars as well so you can be sure that The Fighter and King’s Speech will get a best picture nomination. The 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on January 20th. See the complete list below.

David O. Russell's "The Fighter" and Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech" dominated the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations. Both films receive 4 nods each with "The Fighter" receiving nominations for Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Melissa Leo in the supporting categories. But, the film's lead star, Mark Wahlberg, was not nominated.
Ernest Borgnine will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award.
The 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 30, 2011 at 8 p.m. (Et), 7 p.m. (Ct), 6 p.m. (Mt) and 5 p.m. (Pt) from the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center. Recipients of the stunt ensemble honors will be announced from the SAG Awards red carpet during the TNT.TV and TBS.Com live pre-show webcasts, »
The Screen Acors Guild has released their award nominations for their upcoming 17th annual award ceremony, which will take place on January 30, 2011.
There are some great nominations here. My favorite picks include Christian Bale for his role in The Fighter, Natalie Portman in her role in Black Swan, and Jesse Eisenberg for his role in The Social Network. As much as I love most of these films, I'm surprised that Inception is no where to be seen. That was one of the best films of the year and it seems to be escaping a lot of the nominations in all the award ceremonies this year.
Check out the list of Film and TV nominations below and tell us what your favorite are!
Los Angeles (Dec. 16, 2010) — Nominees for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® for outstanding performances in 2010 in five film and eight primetime television categories and for the SAG »
Okay, totally kidding about the Colfer Lifetime Achievement Award thing - that will be going to Ernest Borgnine. But does it seem to you that the kid who plays Kurt Hummel is getting an awful lot of awards season love? (And wouldn't McHale's Navy have been so much better with him in it?)
The latest outpouring of Colfer acclaim comes from the Screen Actors Guild who announced their 17th annual SAG nominees this morning.
The Glee cast is up for a comedy ensemble award, but Colfer was the only cast member other than Jane Lynch to be recognized individually. And given who he's up against he's almost certain to be the frontrunner!
Another bit of good news for a Glbt favorite, The Kids Are All Right, scored individual acting nods for Annete Bening, Mark Rufallo, and also a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.

The complete list of nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards follows below. The ceremony will be held on January 30th, 2011.
Nothing really to highlight here, unfortunately. SAG voters apparently didn’t care for Halle Berry’s performance as much as the Golden Globes did, because she’s not on this list. And neither is Idris Elba, who was also nominated for a Golden Globe. The cast of For Colored Girls got no love either.
The significance here is that SAG nominees and winners are voted on by members of the union – essentially, their peers.
But one thing that should be obvious by now is that the Oscar race is going to come down to 4 films and the performances in those films: The Social Network, Black Swan, The King’s Speech, and The Fighter. I still have to see the last 2.
Here’s the full list:

"Nine Hours" was a perfect name for the latest episode of The Good Wife. Not only did it relate to the case of the death row inmate and the nine hours to secure a stay of execution, it also refers to the nine extraordinary hours of television we have been blessed with so far during season two.
Unlike most episodes revolving around a specific case, this one didn't take place in the offices of Lockhart, Gardner and Bond. The predominant scenes were filmed in Alicia's bedroom and the Indiana Correctional Facility that housed Carter Wright as he awaited his fate on death row, allowing for some character interactions we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Other interesting points were Diane's increased involvement in the case and the absence of Derrick Bond. I've been awaiting Diane doing something other than sitting behind her desk. I was kind of surprised that she was a calm as she was. »

The always-unpredictable Hollywood Foreign Press Association delivered some surprises in the TV categories.
By Aly Semigran
The cast of "Lost"
While the Emmys often serve up nods to the same old favorites, year after year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globes are beloved for their unpredictability. In the TV category, the domination of shows like "Glee" and "Mad Men" wasn't too surprising, but there were plenty of out-of-left-field choices and sad-face snubs to keep awards-show junkies amused on Tuesday morning (December 14). (Here's a complete list of the 2011 Golden Globe nominations.)
In the drama acting categories, a Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama nomination for Katey Sagal for her work on FX drama "Sons of Anarchy" (The Atlantic raved that Sagal gave a "riveting performance as matriarch of a corrupt biker family") may have been overshadowed by the "Huh?" factor of "Covert Affairs »
HollywoodNews.com: She plays one of the most intriguing female characters on television and Archie Panjabi plays her so well that she won an Emmy last fall.
The character is that of the tightly-wound Kalinda on CBS’s superb drama “The Good Wife.” The actress recently talked to The Los Angeles Times’s The Envelope about her TV alter-ego.
“You feel very safe with Kalinda; she’s there to protect,” she says. “If I’m stuck in a spot of bother I try to think, ‘What would Kalinda do?’ She’s very detached, and she can make a decision and think five steps ahead without emotion. That’s not something most of us can do.”

Anne Hathaway and James Franco weren't the only ones getting <a href="http://www.celebrity-mania.com/news/view/00017316.html" class="submenu">their second nomination from Satellite Awards</a>. When the International Press Academy announced the nominees for 2010 Satellite Awards on Wednesday, December 1, it was uncovered that "Glee" star Lea Michele is up for another title of Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series. <br><br /> The actress famed for her portrayal of Rachel Berry has won the title in 2009, beating the likes of Toni Collette, Edie Falco and Tina Fey among others. This year, she will still have to battle it out against those three TV stars, and gets some new competition from Laura Linney of "The Big C" and Jane Adams of "Hung". <br><br /> Lea wasn't the only "Glee" stars landing an acting nod for the annual awards. Her co-stars, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer, were up for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical Series, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor respectively. »
An all new episode of The Good Wife will be airing on November 23 and it looks like Will and Tammy will be getting it on in the office, while the others are busy dealing with all sorts of trouble. First, a case leads Alicia to believe that personal information about her family is being exposed in a wiretap. Diane seems to think Eli himself is being investigated and wonders if all of his practices are above-board, and Diane also makes the shocking announcement that she and David Lee will be starting their own firm. Is this the end of Lockhart, Gardner & Bond?
Below is a trailer for the upcoming episode, along with a synopsis.
The Firm Represents An Alderman And Alicia's Review Of Wiretap Evidence Reveals Startling Personal Information, On "The Good Wife," Tuesday, Nov. 23
I was pleased to learn that you are submitting your work on "Mad Men" for Lead Drama Actress at the upcoming Golden Globes. While you have not broken through with the HFPA for the first three seasons of the show, this could be your year. And regardless of what happens with the Globes, you must stay in Lead at the Emmy Awards as well. You wisely moved down to Supporting at the Emmys last season. Peggy, who you portray, was a secondary character in the overall arc of the third season of the show, especially when compared to those first two years. Your move made room for your co-star January Jones in the Lead race, and gave you your best chance at an Emmy win. Archie Panjabi ("The Good Wife") surprised us all by triumphing on the night. Your character was front and center throughout the wonderful fourth season of “Mad Men. »
iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove is all grown up, and she'll be appearing on a brand new episode of The Good Wife on November 16. A few weeks ago CBS released promo photos of Miranda's upcoming guest appearance on The Good Wife (and we posted them here). Now, the network has released a trailer which showcases a few scenes from the episode.
Despite the fact that there seem to be a few cheesy lines in the trailer below (something The Good Wife doesn't usually fall prey to that often), I think this will be a great episode and will hopefully showcase Miranda's dramatic acting talents. Based on the list of guest stars, it also looks like we might be seeing more of Peter and his political story this week.

Between Kalinda's steamy kisses with Detective Anthony Burton and her very close friendship with FBI Agent Lana Delaney, Good Wife fans have waited more than a year to find out the truth about Kalinda's sexuality. Tuesday's episode made that answer very much worth the wait.
Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) never uttered the words "gay" or "straight" once during the episode, and she didn't have to. At last, the show opened a window into...

How ironic that on Tuesday, Nov. 2 -- when we'd normally expect a new episode of The Good Wife -- we'll instead be viewing election results from across the country. Ironic because the show being widely acclaimed in the media as the best drama on network television is also the most political show on network television.
Politics aside, The Good Wife has a lot going for it. A stellar cast, to start with. Really, could Julianna Margulies be any more beautiful or compelling as Alicia? Could anyone else pull off the mysterious Kalinda like new star Archie Panjabi? Then there are the twisty but realistic court cases, the inter-office backstabbing, and of course the Will-Alicia-Peter triangle. »
TV Fanatic spoke to our first Emmy Award winner this week.
Congrats on the Emmy Award. Did you think you had a chance?
I didn’t think I had a chance at all. It was a big surprise, but such an incredible surprise because I had no thought at all about it whatsoever. It was really nice to receive.
Following such a successful first season, did you feel pressure to avoid a sophomore slump?
I guess every actor has that in the back of their mind, but there’s a certain energy on The Good Wife where everyone remains very focused and really determined to improve it, however good or however bad they feel it may go. I don’t feel the pressure so much, »
