SUNDAY: Hmmmm. Normally, we’re OK with actors spouting political views at award shows, but the Screen Actors Guild Awards went over the top. Nonetheless, happy to see “Stranger Things” and “Hidden Figures” score the big awards.
MONDAY: Hmmmm. Peter Capaldi says he’ll leave “Doctor Who” at the end of the year, and Billie Piper, who played Rose Tyler on the series, says it’s time for a woman to play the Time Lord. We agree that it certainly would be … timely.
TUESDAY: Huzzah! CBS announces Oprah Winfrey will join “60 Minutes” as a special contributor, which is great news for the show’s aging demographic because now YOU get a jug of Metamucil and YOU get a jug of Metamucil and YOU get a jug of Metamucil …
WEDNESDAY: Huzzah! Beyoncé and Jay Z announce their daughter, Blue Ivy, is about to become a big sister. To twins! Now taking name suggestions. Red Tulip and Yellow Rose?
THURSDAY: Huzzah! Lady Gaga says of her upcoming Super Bowl concert on Sunday, “This performance is for everyone. I want to, more than anything, create a moment that everyone that’s watching will never forget.” Even you, beer-drinkin’, camo-wearin’, truck-drivin’, gun-totin’, small-town gal.
FRIDAY: Hmmmm. The weekend’s new movies — “The Space Between Us” and “Rings” — are average to dreadful, so you have another weekend to catch up on Oscar-nominated movies.
