MERYL STREEP really doesn't like DONALD TRUMP.  And the feeling is mutual, with Trump calling her "overrated."  But Trump recently said he liked Streep. OTOH, Streep once gave a standing ovation to convicted child rapist Roman Polanski.  So 2017 is picking up pretty much where 2016 left off. 

HIDDEN FIGURES, meanwhile, did edge out Rogue One at the box office, now that the sales are actuals.

Not much else to report today, but I'll be back tomorrow.

ROBBIE ROBERTSON stopped by World Cafe to tell stories from Testimony.

GREIL MARCUS: Revelations from Dylan's Nobel speech, the Band's rarities, and the Trump-country Western Hell or High Water.

NAT HENTOFF, an author, journalist, jazz critic and civil libertarian who called himself a troublemaker and proved it with a shelf of books and a mountain of essays on free speech, wayward politics, elegant riffs and the sweet harmonies of the Constitution, died on Saturday at his home in Manhattan. He was 91.

RICK ASTLEY is launching his own lager.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Rogue One and Hidden Figures basically had a photo-finish atop the chart at 21.9MM and 21.8MM, respectively, and remember these are the estimates, not the actuals.  Rogue One now has a total of 473MM domestic, which is the second-biggest gross after the original (until you adjust for inflation, anyway).  Hidden Figures had a terrific opening, nearly recouping its production budget on opening weekend. Sing showed with 19.6MM and is making big money worldwide.  Underworld: Blood Wars took the fourth slot with 13MM domestic and 42MM overseas against a 35MM budget.  La La Land rounds out the Top Five with 10MM and is doing very well considering its only on 1500 screes or so -- a fact that may change post Golden Globes.

THE GOLDEN GLOBES went to these folks. Congrats!  Record night for La La Land, which means it may not tell you much about the Oscars.  The Academy loves movies about showbiz, but typically not musicals.

BEAUTY & THE BEAST dropped a new spot during the Globes telecast.
