The best and worst of 'True Blood' Season 3

There's no best way describe this wildly weird season of "True Blood." There have been witches, dogfighting, kidnapping, werewolves and Alfre Woodard. So in preparation for the Season 3 finale (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO), we've pinpointed the best and worst of the year. Think of it as the Emmys meets the Razzies (the "Bloodies"?). And the awards for "True Blood" Season 3 go to.

Best New Character
Russell Edgington. All hail the King of Mississippi! "True Blood's" villains make the most compelling characters (we even warmed to Season 2's Maryann eventually), and Russell didn't disappoint. Alternately ruthless and witty, the power-hungry vamp (Denis O'Hare) stole every scene he was in. He's the most vicious vampire we aren't ashamed to love.
