It's that time of year again: time to look back on the things we enjoyed the most in television, film, music and other entertainment. For your reading pleasure, here are my '10 in 2012' - ten categories of awards handed out to my personal favorite things and people from the last year.

Best Unscripted Entertainment: There was a lot of fun to be had in the world of unscripted TV this year. NBC ran not one, but two seasons of The Voice this time around, and for the most part, the network's gamble paid off. We were introduced to plenty more great talents, including but not limited to winners Jermaine Paul and Cassadee Pope, and equally amazing contestants like Chris Mann, Katrina Parker, Juliet Simms, Tony Lucca, Terry McDermott, Trevin Hunte, Amanda Brown and Melanie Martinez.
There's also another unscripted show that I enjoy almost as much: History's Top Gear. It's set itself apart from the British original - still one of my favorite shows - with the unique chemistry between hosts Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood. Watching those three guys get into trouble has become a highlight of my Tuesday nights, not to mention the live tweets on Twitter where they provide commentary on all their miscues and pranks. I'm looking forward to new episodes in 2013.
