Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Paddington 2” for the kids — and for Hugh Grant. “Proud Mary” for Taraji P. Henson. TV/Streaming: Its Golden Globe wins made me want to check out “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” On Friday, on PBS, Tony Bennett receives the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Music: Jonny Greenwood’s score for “Phantom Thread” is lush and lovely — a throwback to movie music of the studio era. Dinah Washington helps get me through the depths of winter. Books: Have you bought “Fire and Fury”? I haven’t, but I know plenty of people who have…I’m still making my way through Butler’s “The Way of All Flesh.” Sports: My figure-skating-loving friends tell me that U.S. athlete Nathan Chen has a chance to medal at the Olympics. I’m dubious but hopeful. Finally: It always floors me that Martin Luther King, Jr. — and Malcolm X — both died before they turned 40.
