Coming up on "Sunday Morning": Netflix, popcorn, and "jeweler to the stars"

Watching TV and movies has long been a national pastime for many Americans. But over the years our viewing habits have evolved. Today we're in the midst of yet another revolution – just as videocassettes and DVDs took many away from the multiplex, home video formats have given way to DVRs and "on demand" streaming services like Netflix. In our Oscar Sunday Cover Story, Tracy Smith goes to the movies -- or rather, the movies come to her!

Nothing goes better with a good movie than a big bag of popcorn. But how did the snack come to be ubiquitous at theaters around the world? Mo Rocca looks into how it all started. It's no puff piece!

Some Oscar winners fade to obscurity after their moment in the limelight, while others use the golden statuette as a stepping-stone for the future. After winning an Academy Award for her role in "The Year of Living Dangerously," Linda Hunt starred in "Silverado" and went toe-to-toe with Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Kindergarten Cop," among other roles. Now she stars in one of TV's biggest hits, "NCIS: Los Angeles," and our Lee Cowan sits down with Hunt for an intimate chat.

Also this Oscar Sunday, Serena Altschul goes behind the scenes at Harry Winston, the jeweler who covers the stars in diamonds on the red carpet; Ben Tracy looks into the history of Hollywood's go-to newspaper, Variety; and Rita Braver profiles George Stevens, Jr., founder of the American Film Institute.

Those stories and more this "Sunday Morning." Listen for the Trumpet!
