Anna KendrickAnna Kendrick is '"obsessed" with Game of Thrones.

The What to Expect When You're Expecting actress loves to relax in front of the TV watching her favorite show - a fantasy adventure series - which she likes because she finds it "really romantic.

"I'm really obsessed with Game of Thrones. I find it really romantic. I love that it's epic historical fiction with a supernatural element," she said.

As well as watching TV, Anna also enjoys cooking and claims her creme brulee dessert is one of her best secrets because it is such an impressive dish: "My best kept-secret. It's so simple to make, yet people are always so impressed. Vanilla is underrated."

The Up in the Air beauty admitted her fear of crowds means she is unable to do some things she wants, such as seeing singer Azealia Banks perform live. "Azealia was recommended to me by a friend. If I was better at crowds, I'd love to see her live but I'll probably just be watching online."

United States of Tara - Season 3

Jackie is averaging 2.8 million viewers, while Tara is down to less than 1 million. Toni Collette, the title star in Tara, has received three Emmy nods and one win while on the series. United States of Tara is currently playing out its last hurrah on Monday nights.

The Borgias, Showtime

Only five episodes of The Borgias have aired so far, but Showtime has renewed the series for a second season.

The show is currently averaging 1.1 million viewers every week, big numbers for Showtime. The Borgias revolves around the scandalous family of the same name, led by Rodrigo Borgia, Pope Alexander VI (Jeremy Irons).

The Borgias - Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo BorgiaShowtime’s answer to the gap left by The Tudors debuted on Sunday night. The Borgias, touted by the cable channel as “the original crime family,” enjoyed a 100-minute premiere episode that packed in about as much corruption, sex and murder as any one show can handle.

Jeremy Irons is Spanish-born Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia, but after some clever scheming we were soon calling him Pope Alexander VI. His son Cesare Borgia (Francios Arnaud) is an unwilling cleric but able co-plotter, though his relationship with sister Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) is incredibly suspect. Younger brother Juan (David Oakes) very much enjoys his soldier role, one that’s coveted by older brother Cesare… who seems far more skilled toward this end than toward his religious duties.
