Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “The Best Man Holiday” — the movie with the Christmas-scarf ads — opens: nyet. “Nebraska” — the latest from Creighton Prep grad Alexander Payne — also opens: yes! Television: On Friday, PBS airs “Oklahoma!“, the show that made Hugh Jackman a stage star. Even if you dislike zombies, you should be watching “The Walking Dead.” Music: Lady Gaga may be worth catching on “SNL” this weekend, but her new CD, “ARTPOP,” isn’t worth two seconds of your time. What? You haven’t bought Susan Boyle’s new Christmas CD yet? I just put a lump of coal in your stocking. Books: Here’s the best possible early-holiday present for anyone even remotely interested in show biz: Victoria Wilson’s magisterial new biography of Barbara Stanwyck. Sports: Sunday-night slugfest: Chiefs vs. Broncos. Finally: Have you had your first hot chocolate of the season yet? I like chocolate all year long.
