many of us are looking for ways to get a little more sleep. a recent survey, i was surprised by this, said only 19% of adults don't get enough sleep. 19%. >> me too. >> right here. >> and technology may be part of the reason so let's go over to george who has more on this. >> yeah, robin, the problem may be the blue light. i'm here with rich besser because apple is testing a new feature called light shift that changes it from blue to yellow. it can affect sleep. >> in primitive days we were governed by the sun. when the sun went down hormone in our braiai called melatonin went up and that made us sleepy. now we're vouped by aificial light and plea vents that from rising and in particular, one component of light, blue light is really good at suppressing that melatonin rise and our electronic devices put out a ton of blue light. >> apple has this idea to move from blue to yellow. >> will it make a big difference.
the time and that makes up a big component of blue light, maybe it could make a difference but we get it from all the lights around our home, compact, fluorescent bulbs, l.e.d. bulbs put out a ton of light. there are these orange glasses that will filter out all the blue light. >> it's the bono look. i don't think i'd like to watch my shows this way but they do all kinds of things to cut down on that. >> what other kinds of things. >> in addition to orange glass, different apps can you get for your phone whether it's android or apple that will slowly decrease the amount of light that comes out of there. in terms of sleep it's not just about that. you need to look at trying to get a routine in before bed so you're easing into your sleep. you want to look at avoiding stimulant, no caffeine after the middle of the day. make your bedroom dark. if your clock puts out anything other than a red light put a
color off the clock and separate yourself from electronics at least two hours before going to bed. >> good luck with that but it's the right idea. >> it's hard to do. >> rich besser, thanks very much. over to amy. i wonder what seeing a lot of green will do for you because a lot of people are waking up millionaires this morning including those three lucky winners who struck the jackpot in last night's powerball. their lives are about to change. we heard some horror stories about winners ending up broke buthere are incredible success stories and t.j. holmes is here with that. hey, t.j. >> yeah, this is the cash we've been showing this morning. what $1.5 billion generally would look like in cash. hard to think somebody could burn through all this money but there are some statistics out there that would tell you that 7 70% of jackpot winners lose it all within five years but success ststy, people find a way to hold on to their cash by finding a way to give it away. sure, we all dream about holding that billion dollar winning ticket. some of us might do things like this.

>> reporter: the single mother of three decided to retire, pay off her debt and put the rest into savings. >> i live on a budget and i'm disciplined. >> reporter: hayes says she treats her families to nice vacations but hasn't forgotten to pay it forward. >> there have been times in my life i did not have enough money to buy grocery, food pantry, i didn't forget about them. >> reporter: and still splurges on the occasional powerball ticket. >> do i still play it? yes, i'm going to take my chance and see will lightning strike twice? >> it's hard to imagine someone going through this much money. we haven't given this number. let me give you a little math. these three winners will end up splitting about 990 million in cash. the lump sum. after taxes for each of them, they're going to take home about $200 million. hopefully they don't burn through this any time soon.
this man won a $207 million jackpot and you were watching this remembering. reliving what that was like for you seven years ago. >> yes, it was a wonderful experience. it was like a dream come true in a way. a dream. it's -- how do i say this? they're in for the ride of their life. >> it's a ride all right. how is your life right now? >> it's good. i think we're down to earth. i haven't changed anything that i can think of or know of. >> has money changed you in any way. >> i don't think so. you can ask people and friends and stuff. they'll say no. >> how did you spend the money. >> spend the money? really only thing i've ever bought really that was something -- i never owned a brand-new vehicle so i bought a cadillac escalade. >> what did you do with the rest of the money. >> basically invested it. went to, you know, seen a couple of different financial advisers and found one we like and invest the money and you can live off the interest. >> you live off the interest. >> you went back to work initially. >> i worked for six years afterwards.
a lot would say you ain't seeing me anymore. >> you can say w wt you want. but you won't know until you win it. >> all right. and you had a situation where some co-workers claimed that they should have also been a part of that pool. that had to be an incredibly difficult situation right when you're celebrating now you're dealing with a lawsuit. >> yes, it was kind of odd. it's like, i mean, hey, you know, the thing is there the envelope is there. everybody knows you put your name on it and put your dollar. >> getting the names is important. quick tip for the winners today? >> make sure you put your name on the envelope and put your dollar in. >> and live off the interest. i like that. >> live off the interest. >> loyal, thank you very much. so happy to see you doing so well. >> thank you very much. >> all right, robin. >> good to see, amy. good to see tory johnson here with "deals & steals." going to be a part of our re-boot camp with big bargains on items you will soothe your mind, body and soul. we've been doing it all week long. >> i'm so excited.

[ applause ] >> "star wars" and "straight outta compton." >> we are back now with jess and chris, what jumps out to you right away, chris? >> no "star wars" or "straight outta compton." particularly "straight outta compton," i was surprised. "star wars" weirdly because success is sometimes a liability with the oscars, it's become the oscars underdog but a lot of people were hoping, obviously, nobody at abc and disney, "star wars" is nominated but i would like it to be nominated. >> five nominations for "star wars" all around, 12 for "the revenant," that leads the way. tom hardy getting a supporting actor nomination is a bit of a surprise in the place of someone like michael compete on, jacob tremblay for "room," nothing for "carol" or "straight outta compton" or "star wars." >> cate blanchett, best actress. >> cate and rooney mara -- >> it's loaded. >> best actor is going to be a good show to watch. >> a lot for "mad max."
george miller. he gets a best director nomination too. the surprise there is ridley scott not getting nominated. >> exactly. >> for "the martian." >> he got a lot of love. >> did well. >> anything jump out. >> brie larson is a lock. i think leonardo dicaprio is a lock. i think they can prepare to dance at the governors ball right now. >> do you think this is the year for leo. >> this is absolutely his year. the funny think i think ridley scott was the other one basically getting a lifetime achievement award like leo is this year. >> what about sylvester stallone? >> oh. >> love that. >> you know, just for a moment there you wonder if harrison ford was going to get nominated too. same sort of role but, yeah, big night for stallone >> that's the toughest category to predict, best supporting actor because stallone has not gotten the previous indicators like azags.a.g. nomination. >> did get a golden globe. >> you always look at s.a.g. and stuff.
puncher's chance, this could be his year. >> can i ask about -- >> "spotlight" got a lot of nominations. >> and michael keaton so wonderful in that film. are you surprised
he didn't get recognized. >> i am a little surprised. i think it was tough. so many were going up in the supporting categories. i think maybe he could have gone for best arc and had a shot but decided to go supporting. >> they all split the vote. >> and jennifer lawrence. >> yeah, she did it again. >> j. law. >> cannot be stopped. >> coming up, more about the nominations. >> brie larson, she's going to
you see any possibility that one movie runs the table? >> i think "the revenant" would be your bet. the cinematographer is likely to be a three-time consecutive winner and could be a big night for "the revenant." >> what about director? >> i think -- i think inarritu is your best choice right now but could go in a number of different directions. should be pointed out it's a whitewash in the acting category, 20 nominations. >> that is interesting and one of the nominees on the phone right now, brie larson for "room." congratulation, how are you feeling this morning? >> thank you. i'm shaking right now. i'm really confused. >> ah, what a week you're having, you won the golden globe on sunday and what a performance, i have to say, such a powerful performance. great to have you here last week. so did you wait up all night for the call or get woken up by that phone? >> oh, i stayed up. i'm in australia right now, so i just got off work in time to
bit of dinner and then watch the nominations come out. >> such an incredible performance you gave and because so much of it happened in that confined space, every gesture you made mattered. >> yeah, exactly. it was a film that took a lot of research and a lot of time. i spent eight months preparing for it so that the movie could look like it was effortless. >> your work goes back to "13 going on 30" i think, brie from way back when. what is this moment like. something you dreamed of your entire life i'm sure being an oscar nominee. >> i mean, it's the highest form of flattery in my field. it's unbelievable and the nominations mean so much because it comes from your peers. it comes from fellow actors. i was homeschooled and i never really felt like i was part of any group. to be included with people that i respected so much since i was a kid is just absolutely
>> lenny abrahamson, getting nominated. the director of "room." tell us what he was like to work with. >> he's just an inspiration. i could not have done this without him. he is the most compassionate and care of any director i've worked with. i'm so incredibly happy for him. i think he deserves it so much. the film is what it is because of him, because of his skill, because of his humanity, his understanding, his depth, his love and i think this is such a well-deserved nomination. >> hey, brie, who is the first person you call when you hang up with us? >> yeah, exactly. >> probably my mom. >> yay! >> good answer. >> well, congratulations and enjoy the day, enjoy everything. you deserve everything you're going to get coming up. >> thanks so much. i look forward to hugging you all soon. >> oh. >> sweet. >> that's nice.
