Lily Collins, star of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" and daughter of singer/songwriter Phil Collins, has another credit to add to her list: "Most Dangerous Cyber Celebrity. " The actress replaced Emma Watson at the top of McAfee's annual ranking of actors, musicians, comedians and other celebrities whose popularity is used to dupe fans into downloading viruses and other malicious software. Fans searching for Lily Collins and "downloads," "free app downloads" and "nude pictures" run the highest risk of landing on a website designed to steal passwords or other personal information, McAfee reported.

Join Linda Cardellini, Emmy nominated for her guest turn this season on "Mad Men," in a live video chat today at 1 p.m. Pacific time.

" But Cardellini has been mixing it up in her career for years (she played Velma in two "Scooby Doo" movies, for crying out loud)

When judging acting performances, Emmy voters aren't considering seasons or story arcs or multiple episodes or whether the actor ignored/embraced them the last time they found themselves at the valet station together. At least, they're not supposed to be taking these things into consideration. They are voting solely on the one episode submitted on the actor's behalf. That's it. And by that criteria, there's really only one choice for this year's lead actor drama Emmy: "Mad Men's" Jon Hamm.

TV is the new black for film gentry. Once regarded as a purgatory for serious actors and producers, television has been attracting top-tier movie talent on both sides of the camera for years thanks in no small part to the deep character studies encouraged by cable networks. And this year's Primetime Emmy nominations, which roll out early Thursday morning, may underscore the point as never before. Film stars Kevin Spacey, Jane Fonda, Jeff Daniels, Shirley MacLaine, Holly Hunter, Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, Michael Douglas, Matt Damon and Kevin Bacon, as well as respected filmmakers David Fincher, Steven Soderbergh and Jane Campion are just some of the cinema-tilted talent in line to get the early morning wake-up call late this week.

If Jennifer Aniston's ears were burning Saturday night, and then burning some more and then more, off and on for several minutes straight, it was probably due to one of the stranger sketches from “Saturday Night Live”: a Jennifer Aniston look-alike contest. After kicking off the bit with a falsetto rendition of “You Are So Aniston to Me,” Jason Sudeikis announced that host Zach Galifianakis' character came in eighth and last place in the contest, news that Galifianakis greeted with fury, clad in a long wig and a “Friends” shirt.
