This week's TV Movies


It's time for “The 83rd Academy Awards.” Our favorite movie last year was that one about the one-eyed, one-armed boxer from the Ozarks who outgrows his toys, overcomes a speech impediment, and meets a lesbian couple and a ballerina on Facebook, only to discover it was all just a dream — or was it? (ABC, 5:30 p.m.) 

Speaking of the Oscars, some of our nerdier friends are still perturbed that über-nerd Woody Allen's 1977 comedy “Annie Hall” beat out “Star Wars” for best picture, scoring additional trophies for director, original screenplay and lead actress Diane Keaton. (TCM, 7 p.m.)


Who wore what, and how? Supermodel Paulina Porizkova takes part in an “Academy Awards Red Carpet Fashion Wrap,” and Joan Rivers and company lay down the law on an expanded Oscars edition of “Fashion Police.” (TV Guide, 8 p.m.; E!, 10 p.m.)


Holy frak! Lucy Lawless and Tricia Helfer? Gotta be “Battlestar Galactica,” right? Nope, it's “No Ordinary Family.” But the former costars share the screen once again when they guest on a new episode of the superhero series. (ABC, 8 p.m.) 


He saw fire and he saw rain. She was made to feel like a natural woman. That'd be James Taylor and Carole King, respectively, just two of the leading lights of the 1970s-era singer-songwriter movement profiled on a new “American Masters.” (KOCE, 8 p.m.) 


Sing! Sing for your lives! Following Tuesday's boys-only night, and Wednesday's girls-only night, judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson reveal their wild card choices and the field of finalists is set on a new “American Idol.” (Fox, 8 p.m.) 


Wayne Brady and Holly Robinson Peete co-host the “42nd NAACP Image Awards.” Halle Berry, LL Cool J and Vanessa Williams are scheduled to appear, Michael Franti and gospel music's Mary Mary are scheduled to perform, and Gen. Colin Powell and Surgeon General Regina Benjamin receive special honors. (Fox, 8 p.m.)


Errol Flynn left some mighty big tights to fill with his 1938 turn as the legendary bandit of Sherwood Forest. Kevin Costner tried — and failed — and unfortunately, Russell Crowe fairs little better in director Ridley Scott's 2010 version of “Robin Hood.” (HBO, 8 p.m.)
