Read on to get the scoop from your winners and see how why the Father's Day-win was especially poignant for one trophy recipient.

Brian Williams tortures Kathie Lee and Hoda with a doughnut on Today, 1/7/11Now that 2011 is a week old, many people have already either broken or shelved their New Year's Resolutions. You know what we're talking about: you've stopped going to the gym, and you've drowned your guilt in a sleeve or two of Fig Newtons. We understand; we've all been there.

But it seems that some prominent daytime hosts -- and one very funny late night guest -- are determined to make sure their viewers are sticking to those resolutions, or just whatever exercise program they've set up for themselves.

But no celeb has ever been scared twice by Ellen. Well ... until today.

'Grey's Anatomy' star Ellen Pompeo was the guest on 'Ellen' (weekdays, syndicated). During her previous appearance on the show, DeGeneres freaked the actress out by having a "giant panda dressed as a doctor" come up and shout "Boo!" at her. But could she be surprised again? Nah.

'House' Star Hugh Laurie Discusses the Power of Nudity on 'Ellen'Hugh Laurie has just begn the seventh season of the series 'House.' And although the show revolves around the more curmudgeonly aspects of Dr. House, M.D., all good things must come to an end. So now, House has entered into a relationship with Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein). It remains to be seen if this romantic pairing spells plot-line doom for the show or not. But one thing that has happened as a result -- Hugh Laurie is forced to get naked! That's what we all wanted to see, right?

On 'Ellen' (weekdays, syndicated), Laurie met with host DeGeneres to discuss the whole "nudity" thing. First, Ellen wanted to know if Hugh danced -- then asked if he dances around naked, which is not a question that we'd ever ask . But hey, she's the talk show host, not us. Laurie admitted to occasionally dancing nude, which brought an unexpected cheer from the crowd. Hurray!

Tons of Variety on 'Ellen's Somewhat Special Special' (VIDEO)

Tons of Variety on 'Ellen's Somewhat Special Special'Variety shows -- programs combining a wide assortment of different entertainers -- aren't as popular as they once were, especially back in the heyday of vaudeville routines. But if anyone can bring the variety show back, it would be Ellen DeGeneres.

After all, Ellen is pretty much a jack of all trades herself -- comedian, actress, talk show show host, 'American Idol' musical judge. So if anyone could handle throwing together a bunch of unique performers under one roof, it would be Ellen.

'Ellen's Somewhat Special Special' (Sun., 9PM ET on TBS) harkens back to the grand old days of entertainment, featuring acts ranging from singers to magicians to acrobats. One man can hurl himself around a metal pole for a seemingly unlimited amount of time. Another group uses giant trampolines to endlessly ping-pong themselves across the stage. And speaking of "ping-pong," the show also features this 'Matrix'-inspired team. It's pretty impressive stuff. You should check it out.

Ellen DeGeneres is a big fan of the Discovery Channel series 'Life,' which is narrated by Oprah Winfrey. 'Life' is a nature documentary series that discusses all the major animal groups on Earth.
