Awards season is upon us - and the nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards were announced overnight in a live broadcast hosted by actors Issa Rae and John Cho. After announcing the nominations for Best Director, Issa sent a rather pointed barb about the lack of women in the category. LA-based film reviewer Dom Corry chats to Karyn about the nominations.

3:30 The link between helping and happiness

Professor Elizabeth Dunn says the link between money and happiness is pretty tenuous. And surprisingly, so is the link between giving and feeling good. Her research shows that if helping someone in need is considered a moral obligation, it doesn't boost happiness. How we help - and how we think about it - matters.
