Got more Jennifer Lawrence, more Anne Hathaway, more Jessica Chastain, more “Lincoln,” more “Argo,” if you want it. This week’s kudo-cast is the SAG awards, which have given Maggie Smith four nominations, for supporting and ensemble work in “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” and the same for “Downton Abbey.” Go Dame. By the way, the awesome Dick Van Dyke is getting SAG’s Life Achievement Award.

Shameless Sunday at 9 p.m., Showtime

Frank has a way with children, “Shameless”-style. He can mysteriously calm a crying infant (cough, valium, cough), and he is advocating for his son to go to cancer camp, even though, well, his son doesn’t have cancer. I still love this series, which hasn’t lost any spark this season, the third. William H. Macy (pictured) continues to blow me away with his commitment to this role.
