Off the Wall goes Hollywood swinging.
MOVIE MANIA The cinema spotlight shines on Bruce Willis (4 p.m. Saturday-6:35 a.m. Sunday, Encore) with a five-title festival including "The Sixth Sense" and "Die Hard 2." Special effects get their due in the "Ninth Annual Visual Effects Awards" (Saturday night at 10, Reelz), where "Inception" director Christopher Nolan gets the inaugural VES Visionary Award. Oscar fashions are in focus on "Academy Awards: Iconic Stars, Legendary Fashions" (Sunday at 7 p.m., TV Guide Network). "Signature performances" power double features nightly on Encore Drama from Monday up to next Sunday's Oscars, with our favorite twosome airing Tuesday: Paul Newman in Oscar's 1973 best picture "The Sting" (8 p.m.) and Richard Dreyfuss in Steven Spielberg's blockbuster "Jaws" (10:15 p.m.).

COMPARE & CONTRAST If you've been watching Syfy's American version, time to try Britain's original "Being Human" (Saturday night at 9, BBC America).

AUTO ACTION After watching the great American race itself, the "Daytona 500" (Sunday at 1 p.m., Fox/5), stick around for NASCAR racer Danica Patrick as a guest voice on an encore episode of "The Simpsons" (Sunday at 7 p.m., Fox/5). Bonus! The night's new "Simpsons" half-hour at 8 p.m. is stuffed with stars: Ricky Gervais, JB Smoove, Halle Berry, Russell Brand and Nick Park, all involved in a Golden Globes riff.

REBUILDING FACES That's the gig for Great Neck's Dr. Andrew Jacono, who aids three patients in the hour portrait "Facing Trauma" (Sunday at 10 p.m., Discovery Fit & Health).
