In Selma, we see the most private moments of Dr. King with his wife, their relationship strained by his activism and the risks he is taking, and by tapes the FBI sent to Mrs. King revealing her husband's affairs. Oyelowo explained why those scenes were "a gift" to him as an actor.
Pryor's legacy -- his brilliance, his contradictions and ultimate tragedy -- lingers in the shadows of Chris Rock's Top Five. He is referenced outright by Rock's character Andre Allen during a conversation about comedy's greats. But the allusions to Pryor go deeper.
Tonight, I'm joined by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Lindsey Buckingham, who reflects on his career with one of the most critically acclaimed musical groups of all time, Fleetwood Mac.
Tonight I'm joined by Academy Award-winning actress and director Angelina Jolie. Her film, Unbroken which tells the real life story of Olympian Louis Zamperini's heroic struggle to stay alive during his captivity as a POW during World War Two, opens on Christmas Day.

I have forgotten most of them, and so has the public. However, I am proud of the ones I will tell you about.
