The Oscars arrive early in 2020.
The 2020 Oscar nominees are scheduled to be announced at 8 p.m. (EST) Jan. 13. By then, the 2020 Golden Globes, to be presented Jan. 5, are history.
The Globes are often a predictor of Oscar nominees and recipients, as are key other awards programs, notably the Screen Actors Guild nominees and recipients.
Q. I’m a single mother living in a small apartment building. A young woman, who I suspect is also a single mother, has just moved in with her toddler. I think she has a job, and the times I’ve seen her, she has looked very tired. We’ve never met. Would it be inappropriate for me to ask her if I could be of help?
“It would be very appropriate for this woman to reach out to her neighbor, especially since she thinks the neighbor might be isolated and alone,” panelist Denise Continenza said.
An former boyfriend I dated in high school contacted me online. It was great hearing from him and we spoke on the phone for hours, catching up on the last 30 years. He even put his wife on to say “Hello.” He considers me “the one that got away.” I don’t feel the same way about him. How do I gracefully bow out of these phone calls without insulting him or destroying what initially was a friendly reconnection?

“Star Wars” fans should be pleased.
The regular movie-goer should enjoy “Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise Of Skywalker.”
“A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood” is an odd little film.
On the one hand, it’s been perceived as a biopic of Latrobe, Westmoreland County, native Fred Rogers (1928 - 2003), host of “Mister Rogers Neighborhood” (1968 - 2001), produced by WQED, Pittsburgh, and telecast on Public Broadcasting Television stations.
On the other hand, the film is not a Fred Rogers biopic.
The Allentown Band has been awarded the American Prize’s Ernst Bacon Memorial Award for the Performance of American Music 2018-2019.
The band, which was named a Finalist Honorable Mention, received a Special Judges’ Citation for its CD, “Championing the Music of Morton Gould.”
The band also received a Third Place Citation in the American Prize’s Community Band-Wind Ensemble Division for its performance on its CD “Tribute to John Williams.”
Some movies are lifted by low expectations.
Having seen a movie where you’re not expecting much, you sometimes end up with higher results.
That’s what happened for me with “Jumanji: The Next Level.”
Once one gets past the illogical legerdemain of the movie’s premise, which I won’t geek out on here, “Jumanji” provides an entertaining, frequently humorous and often wild ride.
Q. How do I go about learning CPR?
If you would like to learn CPR, contact the American Heart Association: americanheart.org; 1-877-AHA-4CPR.
Another CPR resource is the American Red Cross: redcross.org.
You can try a local hospital.
CPR, or Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation, employs chest compression and mouth-to-mouth breathing to treat cardiac arrest, heart attack, drowning and electrocution.
CPR can keep some blood flowing to the brain and heart during an emergency.
