  • 1. Sunday night the Grammy Awards will be broadcast on TV, and if you’re a fan of music or awards shows, you’ll want to tune in. The broadcast begins at 8 p.m. EST on CBS. To see all the nominees, get the latest news and more, go to the official website, www.grammy.com.
    2. The big movies opening this week are “Identity Thief,” an R comedy starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy; “Side Effects,” an R thriller by Steven Soderbergh that stars Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones; and the 3-D rerelease of “Top Gun.
    3. Tuesday is the birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, and some museums, libraries and other places have events scheduled for this weekend. Check the newspaper for listings, or check with your library to see if anything Lincoln-related is happening.
    4. Valentine’s Day isn’t until next Thursday, but guys, you’d better start planning this weekend if you don’t want to find yourself in the doghouse! Order flowers now, reserve a spot at a nice restaurant - just do something. Those families with children can have craft time this weekend and make Valentine’s Day cards.
    5. The Super Bowl is over, but there still are plenty of sports to watch on TV. The NBA and NHL will be in action all weekend, and there are international soccer games taking place, too.
