We're impressed you read the whole list.
The 40th annual show will be hosted by 2 Broke Girls stars Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings on CBS on Jan. 8 at 9 PM. Final voting ends on Dec. 5.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is set to make his acting debut on U.S. TV show Community. Gilligan will play a gold digger who helps to escalate a fight between Alison Brie and Danny Pudi's characters, according to EW.com.
The episode featuring Gilligan has already been filmed and will air next year (14).
Gilligan is following in the footsteps of Breaking Bad star Jonathan Banks, who joined Community for an 11-episode arc in the upcoming fifth season, which premieres on 2 January (14).
Incidentally, another Breaking Bad alum, Anna Gunn, also announced on Monday (04Nov13) that she will be making a guest appearance on The Mindy Project. The Emmy winner will be playing a high-profile New York doctor at odds with Mindy Kaling's lead character.
Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has broken his silence about his addiction issues, admitting he is "lucky" to have successfully beaten his demons. The Tudors star struggled with alcohol issues for several years, checking into rehab on several occasions since 2005. His breaking point came when he was rushed to hospital after being found slumped at his London home by paramedics in 2011.
The Irish hunk is now teetotal and admits he has little recollection of his lowest moments but feels privileged to have worked through his issues, unlike some of his tragic pals.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I was wild, I was as wild as you can get. When you are on the front of newspapers for stupidity, getting drunk at airports, fighting with cops and stuff like that, you wake up the next day and you can hardly f**king remember it. Responsibility gets diminished.
"As you get older you see the stupid things you have done. It is not the consequences for yourself but your family get hurt, your friends get hurt.
"At some point you come to a place - and I was lucky because some of my friends have never got to that place - where I saw it as something that was separate from me. It is kind of insanity to do it to that level. I was able to come to that realisation and I look for different things in life now.
"I had a good chat with my really close friends and I came to the end of whatever, going out, getting p**sed, getting into trouble. It got really boring because I knew where I was going to go the whole time. I knew where I was going to end up.
"Now I don't do nothing (sic). Once you make the decision you have had enough of something, the decision is made you have had enough..."
Pop star Lily Allen stepped back into the spotlight on Thursday (31Oct13) by dressing as an alien and performing with fellow Brit Robbie Williams to raise cash for Syrian refugees at a Halloween charity event. The Smile hitmaker, who has been on hiatus since 2010, donned green body paint, a green sequinned dress, and green leopard print tights to attend the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) moneyraiser.
She and former Take That star Williams performed a duet together before mingling with other star guests, including model Jodie Kidd and socialite Jemima Khan, at the event in London.
Actor Ewan McGregor, a UNICEF ambassador, also joined Williams for a surprise rendition of his hit track Angels.
Meanwhile, other stars were enjoying a scary night out at the annual Halloween house party thrown by TV presenter Jonathan Ross.
Nicole Scherzinger dressed as Catwoman for the bash, Simon Pegg revisited his hit movie Shaun of the Dead to pose as a blood-soaked zombie, and Kate Moss and her rocker husband Jamie Hince arrived as Mexican 'Day of the Dead' dolls.
Ross holds a star-studded Halloween party every year at his north London home.
A failed audition for Disney movie Tangled that a casting director taped on her iPhone helped singer Idina Menzel land a leading role in the movie studio's latest animated treat. Menzel tried out for a leading role in the 2010 fairytale film by performing an acoustic version of Blackbird by the Beatles.
She didn't get the part - but a casting director was such a fan she secretly recorded the performance and then used it to persuade film bosses that the Rent star was the perfect choice for the role of Elsa in new movie Frozen.
Menzel tells WENN, "I had auditioned for Tangled and I kind of fell between the cracks. The casting director had saved my audition on her phone but I didn't know she recorded it. She's sort of a fan and she was always waiting for the right thing."
The singer/actress admits she was shocked when she got the call out of blue and was asked to team up with Kristen Bell for the new Disney project.
She adds, "They didn't have any music written yet but they wanted to hear us sing together, so we learned The Wind Beneath My Wings. We sat at my piano in my house in California and figured out harmonies."
Frozen also features the vocal talents of fellow former Broadway favourites Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff.
R&B star Rihanna has been granted a permanent restraining order against a man accused of breaking into her Los Angeles home in September (13). Jonathan Whooper faces felony charges for attempted burglary, vandalism and stalking after he was identified as the suspect who threw a chair through a glass door at the singer's Pacific Palisades mansion.
He reportedly made several unwanted visits to Rihanna's house before he was confronted by security guards and arrested last month (Oct13).
Whooper, who claimed to be the Diamonds hitmaker's "future husband", was subsequently ordered to stay away from the star, and now the temporary ban has been extended for the next two years, reports TMZ.com.
Meanwhile, the suspect is set to undergo a mental evaluation to determine if he is fit to stand trial.
Rihanna, who is currently on tour, has since moved out of her troubled California pad and is preparing to relocate to New York, where reports suggest she hopes to settle down in a new Soho penthouse in Manhattan for $39,000 (£26,000) a month.
Supermodel Naomi Campbell broke down in tears during a U.K. interview while discussing her struggle with anger management. The famously fiery beauty underwent classes to help control her temper after a 1998 attack on her former assistant. She also carried out a 200-hour community service sentence in 2008 for assaulting two police officers at London's Heathrow Airport.
She has now spoken about her issues during a chat with TV host Jonathan Ross, and was overcome with emotion as she tackled the topic.
Wiping away tears, Campbell says, "I made anger management serious! Anger is an emotion. There were things I had to deal with. You have to deal with it. I'm crying, you made me cry. Every day is a new day - I'm no perfect human being. I'm just living and I'm just breathing."
The interview will air in Britain on Saturday (26Oct13).
British actor Alan Davies has paid damages to a former politician after he re-tweeted a post falsely linking him to a child abuse scandal. Last year (12) the BBC ran a report on its Newsnight programme on alleged sexual abuse at a Welsh children's home, and accused a "leading Conservative politician... of sexually abusing boys in care".
The Jonathan Creek star then asked his thousands of Twitter followers for "clues" to the alleged abuser's identity. He received a message mentioning the name of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's advisor, Lord McAlpine, which he then re-tweeted.
The politician launched libel action against Davies, among others in the public arena, and on Thursday (24Oct13), the actor agreed to pay undisclosed damages to Lord McAlpine, while apologising for the "great damage and distress" his actions caused.
After the hearing at London's High Court, which neither party attended, Davies' lawyer Steve Hudson said the star hopes the case makes people think about how they operate on social media.
He said, "Mr Davies hopes that as a result of this matter other Twitter users will be more aware of the potential damaging consequences of tweeting and be more careful in how they use that platform."
New British stage show This Is My Family triumphed at the U.K. Theatre Awards on Sunday (20Oct13) after scoring two top prizes. The Sheffield, England production, from Calendar Girls screenwriter Tim Firth, follows two teens, their stressed parents, a bawdy aunt and a forgetful grandmother as they embark on a disastrous camping holiday. It was named best musical, while veteran actress Sian Phillips was handed the honour for best supporting performance.
The ceremony proved to be great for the ladies - Cush Jumbo earned the title of best performance in a play for A Doll's House, Janie Dee landed best performance in a musical for Hello Dolly!, and Blanche McIntyre was unveiled as best director for a production of Chekhov's The Seagull.
Actor Simon Callow was another honouree - he received an award for outstanding contribution to the British stage, while Edward Petherbridge, director Sir Jonathan Miller and playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn were all also celebrated at the event, which celebrates the best in regional theatre across Britain.
Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance at the London Film Festival on Saturday (19Oct13) to honour his pal Sir Christopher Lee with a prestigious British Film Institute (BFI) Fellowship. The Lord of the Rings villain, also known for his role as Count Dracula in the popular Hammer Horror films, fought back tears as he was presented with the career accolade by Depp, who branded the 91 year old "a national treasure" and "a genuine artist", and revealed that working with Lee on Sleepy Hollow, Dark Shadows and his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake was "a childhood dream come true".
The veteran actor became emotional as he stepped up to the podium, telling Depp, "I didn't know you were going to be here. I must try and pull myself together."
He then returned the Hollywood hunk's compliments by referring to him as one of the few younger actors "who is truly a star".
Lee wasn't the only big winner at the London prizegiving - Pawel Pawlikowski was awarded Best Film for Holocaust drama Ida, while screenwriter Jonathan Asser was named Best British Newcomer for his work on prison film Starred Up.
The awards ceremony took place on the eve of the London Film Festival's final day - the 12-day event wrapped on Sunday (20Oct13) with the premiere of Tom Hanks' Saving Mr. Banks, which tells the back story of Mary Poppins.
