While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Katie Holmes - or, the star with the best "revenge body" of the year - celebrated her 34th birthday today with daughter Suri. The two went out for silver dollar pancakes and eggs benedict at Sugar Plumm in New York City. [Us Weekly]
  • Carrie Underwood, we're totally in your fan club! The singer's voice was giving out when her tour made its way to Des Moines, and she felt bad taking money for a show in which she couldn't fully perform. "I feel real guilty about making any money on this show tonight," Underwood said. "So whatever I'm making is just going to go right back into this community." [Yahoo!]
  • Perhaps this bee also has a dry sense of humor: Scientists in Brazil have named a species of orchid bee "Bazinga," after "The Big Bang Theory's" very own Sheldon Cooper. [Smithsonian]
  • Rihanna's invested some of her millions - $12 million, to be exact - in a new seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion in Pacific Palisades. [Rap-Up]
  • The Kardashian clan busted out their finest (and in some cases, tightest) winter-white party wear for their holiday card - which is missing one Kanye West. [E!]
  • In other random Kardashian news, Nick Cannon claims he broke up with Kim because she was dishonest about having that sex tape with Ray J - even though he says he thinks she helped leak it. [HuffPo]

Shaq, Nick Cannon announce 'Hall of Game' categories, nods

Nick Cannon and Shaq are on the job as hosts of the 2013 Cartoon Network Hall of Game Awards - even if they're mainly just introducing a song in the new promo. (Like CNN, Cartoon Network is owned by parent company Time Warner.)

The categories and nominees for next year's ceremony have been revealed, but rather than have the hosting duo read from a super long list, there's a jazzy little ditty to do that for them.

Check out the video above to hear the nominees, and visit HallOfGame.com to vote.

The Hall of Game Awards will air on Cartoon Network, which is owned by CNN's parent company Time Warner, in February.

Soaps 'OLTL,' 'AMC' could return

In what could be a great plot twist, "One Life to Live" and "All My Children" might not be dead after all.
