TV critic's picks for Saturday, Dec. 8

She will not be ignored

Now that Glenn Close has retired her sinister character on "Damages," she seems a totally appropriate choice to receive a leadership award during the "American Giving Awards" (7 p.m. Saturday, KARE, Ch. 11). Appropriate, that is, as long as she promises not to use part of her acceptance speech to boil a bunny.

The cool kids

Minnesota's own Lenay Dunn teams up with "Teen Wolf" star Holland Roden to count down "10 on Top: Most Stylin' Stars of the Year" (7 p.m. Sunday, MTV), featuring Rihanna, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Nicki Minaj and "CBS Sunday Morning" hunk Charles Osgood.

Holly, jolly Christmas

Eloise Mumford and Sean Faris meet cute in "Christmas With Holly" (8 p.m. Sunday, KSTP, Ch. 5), the latest feel-good movie from the "Hallmark Hall of Fame." Director Allan Arkush previously produced and helmed episodes of "Heroes," which means there's always a chance that one of the star-crossed lovers will get superpowers for the holidays.
