Joey from 'Blossom'
Yes, every show needs a heel, someone you love to hate, and those people can be important on a show. Indeed, a skilled actor can make a good living at that. But what about those who just annoy you to no end, the kind of character that makes your skin crawl every time they step into a shot or say one of their stupid catch phrases, and the ones who serve no purpose but to drive you absolutely nuts and annoy you in your nightmares long after their show has been cancelled? Those are the ones we would like to pay homage to today.

10. Joey from “Blossom”: All that needs to be said is “Whoa!” If ...

Wedding Band
Harold Perrineau deserves an Emmy Award nomination for his work on Sons of Anarchy. And if he should win - after having one of the best individual years for an actor - TV fans will be saying, "It's about damn time."

He's been "that guy" for a decade and a half, beginning when he played Augustus Hill on HBO's groundbreaking prison drama Oz. Since then, every time you see his name in the credits, it's like getting a visit from an old friend. You know that he's always going to give a watchable performance, whether it's his SAG Award-winning role as Michael Dawson on Lost, his pitch-perfect co...

Justified
Nominations for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards are just over a month away, and there's one name that deserves to be on the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series ballot: Justified star Joelle Carter.

No character on the hit FX series has gone through more changes than Carter's Ava Crowder, who began the show as the charming love interest for U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (played by Timothy Olyphant), before transforming into the criminal queen of Harlan County alongside husband-to-be Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). Particularly in seasons three and four of Justified, we've seen such depth i...
