Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: The fact that this is a sequel — “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” — says it all…”Wild Tales” is an Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Film. Television: PBS is broadcasting a program Friday on the great American playwright August Wilson…Sunday night brings the Academy Awards: read Rex’s predictions here. I’m having second thoughts about picking Keaton. Music: That Stevie Wonder TV tribute the other night put his “Songs in the Key of Life,” one of the great pop albums of all time, back on the charts. Books: The two best-selling books in America the past week have been the “50 Shades of Grey” trilogy and Harper Lee’s “Go Set a Watchman.” Ah, America. Sports: The only consolation in New York sports the past year has been hockey: Go, Rangers! Go, Islanders!
