* The Grammys are this weekend, and while the buzz about the outfits that are and aren’t allowed on the red carpet was starting to pick up, it looks like the focus has now turned to the impending storm called Nemo that’s headed for the East Coast, and the impact it’ll have on artist’s travel plans. As part of Grammy week celebrations, Clive Davis was on Thursday night honoured with the first Musical Visionary Award, which will now be named after him, while tonight, tribute will be paid to Bruce Springsteen as the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year.
* It’s also the British version of the Oscars this Sunday, the Baftas. We’ll see if Argo continues it’s pre-Oscar domination, and how many awards the movie will scoop out of the 7 it’s nominated for.
* Dealing with forces of nature is probably all par for the course when it comes to NY Fashion Week, which kicks it up a notch this weekend, in spite of Nemo. Although Marc Jacobs has already rescheduled his show from Monday to Thursday because of customs and deliveries delays, the likes of Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY, Hervé Léger and South Africa’s hottest designer David Tlale are all due to show their 2013 Fall collections in the next few days.
* At the Berlin Film Festival, The Weinstein Company snapped up Wong Kar-Wei’s The Grandmasters, which opened the fest. Among the news coming out of the fest is that Ben Lewin, director of the incredibly moving film The Sessions will take on a comedy next. THR is reporting Katherine Heigl will star in A Moment to Remember.
* There’s a lot of new music out at the mo’ – James Blake just premiered his latest single, Retrograde on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show on Thursday night, Fall Out Boy have come out of their “indefinite hiatus” to return to long-titled singles, with My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up), and Fitz & the Tantrums, who signed to Elektra Records this week, released Out of My League.
