Nominee for Best Actress in 'Gravity' Sandra Bullock arrives on the red carpet for the 86th Academy Awards on March 2nd, 2014 in Hollywood.

Today: A visit to LA's Creole corridor where true Mardi Gras traditions are alive and well. Plus, "Twelve Years a Slave" wins best picture and a part in public school curriculum around the country.
