The 2012 ceremony of the Peabody Awards was held this Monday at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. The awards are bestowed in 2011 so, technically, these are the 2011 awards, leave it up to a bunch of intellectuals to complicate things. We spoke with "Portlandia" co-creators Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel who gave huge props to KPCC in the above video.

In the videos below: we ask "Portlandia" co-creator/co-star Fred Armisen if he will be bringing one of his favorite bands, cult punkers No Means No, on the show next season; Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gave us some insight on his "Game of Thrones" character Jaime Lannister; Retta, Jim O'Heir, and Nick Offerman of "Parks and Recreation" give us some laughs; and Alex Trebek of "Jeopardy" strongly hints that he would like to be a corpse in a TV crime series.
