Good afternoon, everyone. Come join us in this week's Reliable Source chat, happening now. Submit questions and read along as we dissect the week's most important pop cultural news.
Elsewhere in today's news:
Lionel Richie, Quincy Jones and more than 80 of their closest famous friends gathered in Los Angeles this week to record a cover of "We Are the World." Chris Richards reports from the inside, where the sausage is made:
Barbra Streisand was inside, still at work: "There's a choice . . . There's a choiiice . . . " She was recording (and rerecording) a 21-word solo turn -- her fussiness being broadcast live to a giant screen in the courtyard for all to see.
As she fidgeted on-screen ("It's true we make a better day . . . I don't know what to do here"), the R&B singer T-Pain couldn't help but smile. "I don't think she knows everyone can see her," he said.
With 10 nominees for the Academy Awards' Best Picture prize, this year's field is diverse -- and crowded. Dan Zak and Jen Chaney break it all down. Prefer visual analysis? Enjoy a photo gallery of Oscar-nominated movies.
