Madonna, Martha Stewart, and Lindsay Lohan are among "Entertainment Tonight"'s biggest losers of 2012. And we're not talking about weight loss.

The TV show compiled a list of Hollywood's winners and losers from the past year, based on things they've said, done, and the money they've earned (or lost!).


Madonna is being called a Grinch for refusing to sing during an outdoor concert in Chile because of a smoker in the crowd. Stewart's company has reported a nearly $51 million quarterly loss and is about to lay off 12 percent of its workforce, and Lohan reportedly owes back taxes and is facing a battery charge in New York and a possible probation violation in Los Angeles.

Now for some of the winners! Britney Spears made $58 million thanks to her new album "Femme Fatale" and her decision to be a judge on "The X Factor." Boy band One Direction won big with two No. 1 albums in eight months. And actress Jennifer Lawrence shot to fame because of her performance in "The Hunger Games." "Magic Mike" star Channing Tatum rose to winner status after he was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. (Photo: AFP Photo/Valerie Macon/Getty Images)

"E.T." also awarded the Hollywood A-listers who banded together for a pubic service announcement about gun violence to the winners' circle. You can watch part of that announcement in the video above.
