7:02 am
>> oh, yeah, a lot of good movies out there. "la la land" being one of these great movies out there. i know they're waking up hoping they'll get calls this morning about some nominations and also this morning we're getting our first look at the obamas on vacation. there they are. looks like they were very relaxed as they head to sir richard branson's private island. >> good to be ex-president. not bad. >> could you imagine the stress relief when you're out of office. >> you can see it. >> new president hard at work. packed first monday in office. our political team is covering every angle from his battles with the press to the push for his cabinet nominees, to his first executive actions. let's start with cecilia vega at the white house. at that congressional meeting overnight the president repeated false claims about the election. >> reporter: george, president trump says that he lost the popular vote because of millions of illegal votes that were cast. this is a claim he has made before and it is one that has
7:03 am
been flatly debunked. the cameras were rolling for president trump's first official white use meeting with congressional leaders. >> sources telling abc news he lost the popular vote to hillary clinton because of millions of illegal bam ets were cast. president trump has made the claim before and fact checkers have roundly debunked it. so trump settles into his new role, so too does his staff. press secretary sean spicer facing the cameras again after his much criticized first performance this weekend. >> this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period. >> reporter: this time a different tune to abc's jonathan karl. >> is it your intention to always tell the truth from that podium, and will you pledge never to knowingly say something that is not factual. >> it is. it's an honor to do this, and, yes, i believe that we have to be honest with the american people. i think sometimes we can
7:04 am
disagree with the facts. there are certain things that we may not fully come out but our intention is not to lie to you, jonathan. >> reporter: kicking off his first full week with a packed schedule. >> we'll sign three memorandums right now. >> reporter: starting by signing a flurry of new orders from a federal government employee hiring freeze to a ban on foreign aid to groups who provide abortion services, a policy first imposed by ronald reagan that has been reinstituted by every republican president since. and making good on a campaign promise to pull out of a major trade deal with asia, the transpacific partnership. >> great thing for the american worker, what we just did. >> reporter: now no comment so far from the white house on those election claims. some in the room is say that donald trump made these comments in jest but he has made the comments before, tweeting after the election that millions of people voted illegally. in the meantime, it is another
7:05 am
busy day at the white house. the president is meeting with auto executives and he will be talking about american jobs. robin? >> all right, cecilia and there are new developments for president trump's cabinet nominees. more pushback expected today as tom price heads back to the hot seat. overnight another one of trump's candidates, mike pom way yoe, was confirmed. mary bruce joins us from the capitol. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, day five of the trump administration and the president has just three confirmed cabinet secretaries. the latest overnight congressman pompeo for cia director. they are picking up the pace, but there is still a logjam here on capitol hill as democrats raise ethical concerns about many of trump's nominees and that is expected to continue today as they take aim at mick mulvaney.
7:06 am
the president's pick for budget director now under fire for his own finances after he failed to pay taxes on his nanny's income. this is the kind of thing that's taken down nominees in the past but this morning the question is just what kind of impact does it have in current political climate. robin. >> mary, there does seem to be good news for the administration concerning the president's selection for secretary of state. seems like he has cleared a hurdle there. >> reporter: yeah, rex tillerson, the former exxon ceo has cleared a major hurdle now that republican senator marco rubio is finally on board. rubio had raised concerns about tillerson's ties to russia. he says he still has reservations but didn't want to create an unwarranted political controversy by blocking him. tillerson could now be confirmed as early as next week, robin. >> all right, mary, thank you. >> let's get more on this from jon karl. jon, you were pretty tough, pretty direct questions to sean spicer yesterday. what you got back is kind of a mix of concessions and combativeness. >> reporter: yeah, but it was a clear reset, george. sean spicer went into this briefing room over the weekend because president trump was upset and wanted him to come out here and deliver aongue lashing at the press. he did that. it did not go over well.
7:07 am
he refused to take questions. so when he came out here yesterday for his first official briefing, there was a little bit of humor and there were critically some concessions and he did acknowledge that some of the information that he gave over the weekend was not correct. he said it wasn't intentional and that he would always as you heard do his best to tell the truth from the podium. >> and you mentioned it right there. we know that president trump was upset saturday. that's why sean spicer came into the briefing room. he's keeping a close eye on all this. some reports he wasn't very happy after spicer's briefing on saturday. >> reporter: yeah, it was like worst of both worlds for the press secretary. certainly he didn't make any or build any bridges with the press and president trump by all reports was not happy with the performance, some aides thought it shouldn't have been done to begin with but what we hear about yesterday's performance is that the president was quite happy with it. >> on the confirmation front it appears that the president is closing in on a supreme court nominee. >> reporter: that's right.
7:08 am
what i'm told is there is one a circuit court judge, 10th uch, circuit. he is somebody who is only 49 years old and would be actually, george, the youngest supreme court nominee in about 25 years, very -- somebody who's popular with conservatives and was confirmed for his current job unanimously by the senate back in 2006. >> that could be -- >> reporter: i'm told that could come next week. >> that could be key, the fact that he was confirmed unanimously last time because you're hearing some talk from the democratic leader shuck schumer of filibustering whoever the president puts up. that would mean they would have to get democratic votes to get it through. >> reporter: the white house believes it would be hard to filibuster gorsuch. he's just not that controversial. but there are a lot of bruised feelings by the fact that, of course, barack obama's last nominee didn't even get a hearing. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. tomorrow night david muir will have e first interview with president trump since the inauguration. that will air right here on abc at 10:00 p.m. michael. >> all right, george, and now to that massive nor'easter that's

7:32 am
trump accountable and i'm here to tell you it goes two ways. we're going to hold the press accountable, as well. >> reporter: with that debut, sean spicer put a new spotlight on one of the toughest jobs in the white house. press secretary. the role involves a delicate dance. bridging the gap between the president and the press. >> it is at the same time the best, most wonderful, exciting job you'll ever have and the most grinding, grueling pressure-filled burnout job you'll ever have. >> reporter: and that grind and pressure unfolding on live tv in its entirety starting during the bill clinton administration. >> he said i did not have any sexual relations with that woman. he couldn't have been clearer. >> did he mean no sexual encounter whatsoever? >> david, i called on april. i'll come back to you some point down the road maybe. >> when things got heated the best strategy is to stand your ground. say what you believe in, say it forcefully but say it respectfully. that's the trick. >> reporter: but sometimes things get too heated for respect. here's obama's press secretary jay carney mixing it up with our
7:33 am
own jon karl. >> these memos say at the end of the day we are all stuck in the same queue because they have to go through the same portal. >> jon, i get it but the person who calls isn't the one who continues to wait after the paper application is filled. right? >> reporter: former press secretaries we spoke to say the secret to success is to never lose the trust of the reporters you work with but more importantly, the public you serve. >> you are on a stage that the whole world is watching and the credibility of the white house is very important. you're standing with not only the country and the public but the larger world itself. >> reporter: and the job is so stressful, so demanding that it's not uncommon for a president to go through two or three press secretaries in one term. there's also crossover with our business, sometimes prominent reporters like the late tony snow or jay carney become press secretaries and sometimes press secretaries become prominent
7:34 am
broadcasters like pierre sallinger, dana perino at fox news and there's one more -- i don't remember. >> what is that? >> greek maybe. >> we've seen -- thank you for the report. as we've seen it's commonplace for reporters to tangle with the press secretary. you know this all too well. >> i feel a lot of sean spicer's pain. no qstn bit. in fact, i'm going to show a clip from my first briefing. not quite as contentious as sean's but it was something very, very similar. hillary clinton did not want the press to be able to come up into the press room. just like president trump wants to kick them out of the west wing. we had not made a final decision of it but helen thomas who covered every president since john f. kennedy, you see her right there, right at the first question she started giving me a hard time. >> are you going to block us from going up the steps to your office? >> we will review any of these kinds of plans. that's exactly what it means reviewing everything right now. >> you said -- >> for the time being we're doing it before we make any permanent decisions and we'll be discussing this with you. >> i've been here since kennedy
7:35 am
and that door -- those steps have never been blocked to us and the press secretary's office has never been off-limits ever. >> the important thing is to make sure you have all the information you need to do your jobs and that's what we're committed to give. >> what i wanted to say at that point was, i know, helen. i don't want to close the door. >> you were told to? we were told to. we hadn't yet convinced hillary that we couldn't close the door. we did keep it open but we weren't quite there yet so i had to dance for a little while. >> you have to be ice cold i that role so i'm curious, what's tougher, this job or that job? >> that job is a lot tougher. >> happy to be here. >> this one pays a little better. >> a little better. it is a real balancing act because you have to hold your ground and be forceful but have to be respectful. >> well, add one more thing, one of the reasons sean got in trouble he was saying things that weren't true. you have got to do everything you can -- you're not always going to be right but you have to do everything you can to try to tell -- be accurate and tell the truth.
7:36 am
that's why the question jon karl asked sean yesterday was so important. is it your intention to always tell the truth from the podium. >> not only for us but the american public can trust what's coming out. >> that's right. >> you look just the same. >> hasn't changed. >> not a bit. coming up a dramatic rescue. it's caught on camera. and what to do if you get stuck in your car. come on back. k in your car. come on back. deal with high... and low blood sugar. januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). januvia should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. tell your doctor if you have a history of pancreatitis. serious side effects can happen, including pancreatitis
7:37 am
which may be severe and lead to death. stop taking januvia and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area which may be pancreatitis. tell your doctor right away and stop taking januvia if you have an allergic reaction that causes swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or affects your breathing or causes rash or hives. kidney problems sometimes requiring dialysis have been reported. some people may develop severe joint pain. call your doctor if this happens. usg januvia with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. to reduce the risk, your doctor may prescribe a lower dose of the sulfonylurea or insulin. your doctor may do blood tests before and during treatment to check your kidneys. if you have kidney problems a lower dose may be prescribed. side effects may include upper respiratory tract infection, stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, and headache. for help lowering your blood sugar talk to your doctor about januvia. you totanobody's hurt, new car. but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay

7:47 am
a lesson about strangers. she said he was too nice, sunny. the arrest warrant states the boy was lured from his bus stop. he was told he would never see his mother again. this man brandished a gun and said he was going to nail him to a shed door. he was tied up. his face covered with a hood of the put in the basement for hours. as a mother i know what i think. as a mother and prosecutor i want to hear what you have to say. >> when my mommy hat is on, i'm horrified. the folks that are involved were the boy's mother, his aunt, his grandmother and a friend. so, when you look at these four folks, i think my goodness this is supposed to be this little boy's trust system, this is supposed to be his support system. when i take my mommy hat off and i look at these four pictures, all i see are lists of felonies. i see felony kidnapping. i see felony restraint. i see felony child abuse and i think that that's what is significant about this. these are people in trying to protect this child committed crimes. >> and legally where is the line
7:48 am
in the sand when it goes from -- some people may say that's just parenting. where is the line legally in the sand where it goes from parenting to abuse? >> and that's important. let me read to you the federal statute. so federally child abuse is any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation but doesn't define specifically what that all means. my rule of thumb as a mom, as a former prosecutor, what you can't do to a vulnerable adult you can't do to a child. had they done this to an adult, it would certainly be a felony. put that in your minds, parents, when you are trying to discipline your child. >> emotional trauma. that's what this case is, 100%. >> no question. >> sunny, thank you very much. >> thank you, sunny. and next up, the stage is set for major super bowl showdown. i'm not talking about the patriots and the falcons but tom brady and roger goodell. they could face off for the first time since brady was suspended for four games after the deflate-gate scandal.
7:49 am
and stephen a. smith is joining us live. stephen, in a radio interview brady was asked what he might say to the nfl commissioner if they were to meet face-to-face and he responded, maybe i'll tell you after. so what's going on? how heated is the feud between these two? >> well, brady is going to try to underplay it but he's furious. he's been furious. he thinks his name is raked through the coal tz and his reputation has been smeared to some degree and he holds roger goodell responsible for that you got to remember the folks in foxborough, massachusetts, they love themselves some tom brady and even during this afc championship game that just took place a couple of days ago you had people chanting roger, roger, holding up big signs for roger goodell asking where was he because he was in atlanta for the nfc championship game when he knows good and well he should have and could have been in foxborough but he hasn't been back there since the afc championship game of 2015 two years ago when the patriots ellacked the indianapolis colts 45-7 and outscored them 28-0 in the second half because roger goodell doesn't want that
7:50 am
kind of just acrimony, the dissension, everything is going to be criticism and all aimed at his direction. he knows the folks in foxborough and patriots fans the world over are coming for him. that's why he was so relieved when the denver broncos beat the new england patriots in the afc championship game last year. this is one of those situations brady knows he can't do but so much until he wins. if he wins roger goodell will have to present them that lombardi trophy which you know all about, michael strahan, but if he doesn't win he doesn't have to deal with tom brady. he's not going to see roger goodell. >> well, i tell you right now, brady's motivated to be the first quarterback to win five super bowls and i think this deflate-gate definitely has added to that. and thank you, stephen a. sunny, thank you very much. coming up, the oscar nominations. see who's been nominated. nominations. see who's been nominated. well, when you have copd, it can be hard to breathe. it can be hard to get air out, which can make it hard to get air in.

the envelope please as oscar season kicks off, and they're saying -- >> all: good morning, america. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> good morning, america. how beautifully dressed is everyone in this audience today? and you did do a wardrobe change. very nice. >> i wanted to -- with the audience, i knew they were bringing it so i wanted to do it too. do you recognize these earrings, george? >> i do. >> george gave those to robin for christmas. >> ali picked them out. >> i asked him if he recognized them because i'm sure ali probably had a little something -- thank you very much. it's a special morning. exciting. oscar celebration. >> we do it every year. >> yes, we do. >> we've been doing it for 900 years. >> but the nominations are coming. >> we're all excited about these nominations because there are a lot of good movies out there but we're also excited because we have dj irie.

8:03 am
more cabinet choices will be in the hot seat. health secretary nominee tom price is facing questions about replacing obamacare and the president's nominee for budget director, mick mulvaney, is facing questions about his failure to pay taxes for a nanny. despite the busy schedule president trump is apparently still sounding off about losing the popular vote to hillary clinton. abc's cecilia vega has all the details. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: yeah, amy, good morning to you. this controversy came during donald trump's first official meeting here in the white house with congressional leaders. now, in that meeting sources tell abc news the president said that he lost the popular vote to hillary clinton because millions of illegal ballots were cast. this is, of course, a false claim. he has made it before, and it has been fact checked. fact checkers have roundly debunked it. no comment so far from the white house, but some in the room say the comment was made in jest. now, the president is kicking off his first full week in office with a packed schedule including with a flurry of new orders from a federal government employee hiring freeze to a ban on foreign aid to groups who
8:04 am
provide abortion services, and he's also making good on a campaign promise to pull out of a major trade deal with asia. that, of course, is the transpacific partnership, and today another busy day in the white house. president trump is meeting with auto industry executives to talk about american jobs. amy. >> all right, cecilia, thank you. and abc news has learned president trump has narrowed down his choices to fill the vacancy on the supreme court. sources say federal judge neal gorsuch is the leading contender. he's 49 years old, and his nomination could come next week. meanwhile, president trump is giving his first one-on-one interview since the inauguration to our david muir. the abc news exclusive airs during a prime time special tomorrow at 10:00 p.m. eastern. minnesota's governor is recovering after this frightening moment when he fainted at the podium during his televised annual address. governor mark dayton was later able to walk on his own, and his family says he has quickly recovered. he was hospitalized last year for dehydration.
8:05 am
well, a powerful storm is hammering the northeast with heavy rain and wind, coastal flooding and snow. the nor'easter knocked out power to more than 35,000 customers, toppled trees on to homes and swamped train stations from pennsylvania to new england and turned deadly when a sign from a car lot struck a man in philadelphia. on the west coast a state of emergency has been declared for 50 counties in california slammed by winter storms that triggered mudslides, and in utah an avalanche was caught on camera, tons of snow racing down a mountain and onto that road. look at that. fortunately, the road had already been closed. and finally, the phone is ringing off the hook at a deli in washington but the callers aren't looking for pastrami. they're looking for the president. someone mistakenly tweeted the phone number at bub and pop's deli, which is one digit off the number to the white house comments line so the deli, as you might imagine, has been flooded about complaints from
8:06 am
everything about cabinet nominees to obamacare but the owner is trying to take advantage inviting callers to drop in for a visit and of course they just got a shoutout to a few more million people here on "good morning america." >> doesn't hurt. you got that right, amy. thank you. we turn to an important health warning. the cdc is reporting a spike in flu cases across the country. our chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser will break this down for us. >> yeah. >> so what's going on, rich? >> flu season peaks between january and march and we are right in the middle of it. it's been going on for the past few weeks. it's spreading around the country. if you take a look at the map, there is a lot of flu activity in the midwest. those are the states in red with high activity. it's spreading across the country. it hasn't yet reached epidemic levels so there's still more to come. >> this has hime for you. >> it has. it has. you know, people wonder whether vaccinations are the way to go. it is the best way to reduce your risk but just last night my son who goes to wash u. in st. louis, one of the areas being hit hard, was diagnosed with the flu and he had his shot back in november.
8:07 am
so it reduces your risk but if you're in the high risk group, elderly, very young, pregnant women, definitely worth getting your flu shot. it will take two weeks to kick in. >> he's doing well. if you get flu symptoms it's good to get in for treatment early. if you get treatment within 48 hours, tamiflu can reduce the length. >> not as severe. >> exactly. >> you know, we live in a very competitive world and some people -- you don't go to work, you don't get paid, and so they soldier through. >> that's right. >> and they go to work. when do you know you just got to stay home? >> you got to do the right thing. you're contagious from the day before you have symptoms and then for another week or so after that. but if you have fever you should stay home and then for another 24 hours to make sure it's not coming back. if you don't have energy or your kids don't have energy, don't send them to school and kids should stay home a little longer because they're so good at sharing germs with each other. it drives me nuts when schools give awards for perfect attendance because it encourages kids who are sick to go to school when they should be staying home. >> i never thought of it like
8:08 am
that. >> yeah, you got to do the right thing. it helps everybody else out. >> you got to keep everybody in mind. not just yourself but you're putting other people at risk. >> protect those around you. >> if you're at home you can watch the oscar nominations coming up. first we have "pop news." can you escort me over? >> yes. >> okay. i got an escort. nice. >> i would have worn my tux if i would have known. >> thank you, rich. >> very own red carpet. >> i know, love that. "pop news." >> yes, "pop news" time. my golden girl, we're going to begin with a little oscar news. the nominations happen this morning, as you may have heard. jimmy kimmel getting us in the spirit for a brand-new video on how you too could one day hear your name called out. take a look. >> first you get a job as a waiter. then you go to a lot of auditions. >> you don't get it, dad, i was born to dance. >> yeah, dad. then you act your little heart out. >> don't die, soldier. that's an order. >> and finally the oscar goes to you. >> ah.
8:09 am
>> i wish it were that easy. >> yeah, i was going to say. i'm sure ryan gosling says that's exactly how it happens. totally. it's his first official promo for the award show. the comedian sharing a blueprint if you will on how to take home hollywood's biggest honor. you can find out which real-life stars will get the chance to walk on that stage in a little bit right here on "gma" and then the real deal, the 89th annual academy awards air live on abc, 8:30 p.m., february 26th. robin roberts, if you already tell me you know what you're wearing, i'm not going to be happy. >> i have no idea. no clue. >> you're always -- no, no. >> you always torture yourself. >> i know and i always ask your advice then i don't follow it. this year i will. >> you just have to ask. >> of course, we're family. that's what you do. >> it's going to be fun. we know that. hey, also in "pop news" this morning, more hosting news. alec baldwin has appeared almost every week this season on "saturday night live" as president donald trump, but on february 11th he will break his own record when he guest hosts
8:10 am
for the 17th time. >> wow! >> he's a cast member. for the record there he is with his pal steve martin. he's just behind him guest hosting "snl" 15 times and, yes, the dear friends are competitive about this situation. so my guess is next week steve martin will be on. just a guess but sure to be a good show and probably donald trump in there, president donald trump. finally more hosting news. susan lucci returning to daytime tv for a new gig. "people" magazine reporting that the soap star will serve as a co-host on the hallmark channel's morning show called "home and family," and i love this, robin. she's bringing her "all my children" family together. >> yes! >> i know. >> come on now. >> guys in the audience, who watched "all my children"? raise your hand. it was like my daily pleasure. it is a special reunion, notable cast members of the legendary

[ applause ] >> does meryl streep ever not get nominated? >> you know, not in my universe she doesn't, no. i mean, the big surprise there is amy adams not getting nominated for "arrival" especially how strong it was across the board. nine nominations and best picture and leaves out "deadpool" but a very strong group. >> what jumps out for you? >> i still think "la la land" will be the movie to beat based on all of the nominations today. the best actress, that was the most unpredictable category, and it remains unpredictable. isabelle huppert, natalie portman, emma stone, meryl streep, ruth negga fro "loving."
8:37 am
it's a fantastic group, and like but annette bening left out, emily blunt left out even though she had a screen actors guild award for "the girl on the train," and amy adams, five-time nominee, i thought she may have had a chance to even win this year for "arrival" but she wasn't nominated. >> supporting categories are both strong. >> they very much are across the board. supporting actress pretty much went the way you would imagine although the two women from "20th century women" were very strong, greta gerwig and elle fanning. but not able to crack it this time. viggo mortensen, i know is a surprise to a lot of people getting a best actor nomination but this was kind of predicted by a lot of people who were following this stuff. leaves people like tom hanks not getting a nomination this year but that's the way it goes, lots of new faces this year, and a big surprise that pixar does not get a nomination in feature film for "finding dory." two disney films instead. but no pixar. >> i was going to ask you, the animated films makes so much money and none make the best picture. >> if you want to look for where the hit movies are, you'll find them in visual effects and you'll find them in animated film. "doctor strange," "rogue one,"
8:38 am
"jungle book," "zootopia" and "moana." these are movies that made a lot of money and they can still be going home with oscars before it's all over. >> "zootopia." >> i've seen every one of them because i have kids. all right, everybody, stay right there. when we come back, some of the oscar nominees are going to join us right here on "gma." you don't want to miss that. we'll be right back.

8:43 am
congratulations, michael. >> oh, thank you. thank you so much. >> and i had a chance to sit down with you and aaron taylor-johnson and tom ford and do an interview before it and we talked about this movie and how moving it is. but are you surprised about your second nomination for an oscar and did you see it live or did somebody have to call and wake you up? >> well, you know, i'm in new castle, england, right now so -- and i'm working on another project, so, yeah, it was kind of just dropped out of the sky, yeah, but i love the movie. i think it's obviously kind of a dark movie like you were saying, very emotional, but i think it seems to be striking a chord with some people. >> you seem to be pretty relaxed right now. but when you first hear the news, do you let out a scream? who do you tell first? >> you know what, it's so funny. i'm at a hotel right now waiting for my room, so i'm really
8:44 am
standing out on the sidewalk pacing around. >> that's so funny. >> it's a very unglamorous situation. >> have you gone to the front desk and said -- >> you'll get a better room that way. >> yeah. >> maybe a view. >> i think i could go back in. >> so you haven't -- >> yeah, i haven't had a chance to talk to any of my family yet or anything being so far away. >> but i tell you what, i'm pretty sure they're going to be extremely happy to get this news, as happy as you are, and it's well deserved and we hope you get checked into that room really soon. ana good room, a good room at that and we'll be looking out for you at the oscars and wish you luck, my friend. >> thank you very much. appreciate it. >> all right. yeah. >> that's one nominee we know was not in pajamas. >> yes. >> every other nominee i assume is in sleepwear because it's so early in hollywood this time of day. >> but i can only imagine the feeling when you get this call especially i'm pretty sure for some they say i'm not going to pay attention. i'm going to sleep in. i'm just -- if i get a phone call in the middle of the morning, i'm pretty sure that's
8:45 am
what it is, and for them it's got to be very exciting when the phone rings. >> you try to tell yourself i'm just happy with the nomination. don't have to worry about the rest. >> and the feeling of surprise. i don't think he had a lot of expectations, you know what i mean, so it was especially sweet for him. although i'd say michael shannon is probably the least excitable oscar nominee ever. >> you're right about that, jess. >> i want to ask chris connelly your opinion. mel gibson, is this the completion of the comeback? >> i guess it is. i guess he's -- i guess this is -- this was the spare slot in best director, and i think people felt that "hacksaw ridge" was an outstanding movie and he got the nomination. >> also andrew garfield got the nod and the film, as well, correct? >> fine work, as well and to finish off a story that we've all been talking about last year, three of the best picture nominees all about the african-american experience, seven actors of color nominated so we turned the page there for a year at least. >> yeah. >> i love "hidden figures." >> yes. >> the performances in the movie very deserving.
8:46 am
>> great films and great performances from that. mahershala ali, he's been somebody that's been on this show a couple of types and hopefully we'll hear from him in a little bit and talked about "moonlight" and it was like the little film that could. >> absolutely. >> and what is it about it, do you think, that's resonated with folks? >> i think it's a coming of age tale. >> yeah. >> just really well told and so no matter -- >> artistic. >> artistic but any good coming of age tale that's well told is universal. and it's strange to say because this kid's life was so extraordinary and unrelatable to a lot of people, but it was so well done that no matter who you are, you can identify with the story. >> and naomie harris. naomie harris, you usually see her like all glam and for her to take the role, she said it was something because she didn't want to fit that stereotype and said because of barry jenkins, the -- it's his story, and she bought into it and said it is just so beautifully done and if people haven't seen it should take the time to. >> he also will probably win.

[ cheers and applause ] back now. oscar party. we're talking about all the nominees and congratulating them, and on the phone with us now, naomie harris who has been nominated for her role in "moonlight." naomie, congratulations. congratulations, naomie. so, how did you hear the news? naomie, how did you hear the news? >> say again. my brother actually called me because i couldn't -i couldn't follow it live. i was too nervous, and so my brother called me, which is the best way to hear any news. >> and was he screaming? was he screaming?
8:50 am
how did he tell you? >> he was screaming, and then i was screaming, and then i immediately called my mum and she was screaming and so, yeah, the whole family is just over the moon. it's just -- it's unbelievable. really, really unbelievable, and i'm just so excited for the movie as a whole as well. i'm so excited for "moonlight" that it's got this kind of recognition and hopefully will encourage more people to see this fantastic movie, so it's just the best news ever. >> oh, i remember when you were here along with mahershala and barry to talk to me and talk to us about it and wanting people to see it because as we were talking about it, it's a coming of age movie that everybody -- so many people can relate to and explain to people that this movie was put together in a relatively short amount of time. >> well, it was shot in 25 days, and as you know, i shot my part in just three days, so it's incredibly short, and it was made on a tiny budget. you know, the hair and makeup
8:51 am
people had a budget of between $300 and $700 for the entire movie, and so it was really, really low budget and nobody ever, ever expected this kind of response to it so we are all just over the moon. >> you said that you -- on the surface you were reluctant to take the role because you -- >> i know. i could have said no. i was so close to saying no. >> but why did you say -- why did you say yes? >> because i saw barry jenkins' first film, which he made for $13,000 and it is one of the most beautiful movies i've ever seen and also because barry explained to me that basically the character i play is an amalgamation of his mother and the original tarell alvin mccraney. >> barry, a double nominee for director and screenplay and, of course, best picture nomination also. what will it be like to go to the oscars with your whole filmmaking team to celebrate how well "moonlight's" done?
8:52 am
>> that is the best, the best feeling ever because there is so much love and passion that has gone into this film, and i can't think of more deserving people to be nominated and for us a nomination is a win. we are just over the moon with it because it is so much fun working on it and so much passion and such a beautiful movie that's been created that it's just wonderful to get this kind of recognition and we are all going to be floating down the red carpet. >> well, fitting that you're over the moon for "moonlight." it's very fitting that you would say that, naomie. congratulations. >> thank you. >> and we will see you, my friend, we will see you on the red carpet. enjoy your day. >> i look forward to it. >> all right. >> i know, exactly. >> and every designer in the world right now is like, get me naomie harris' phone number. >> spectacular. >> she is so beautiful. >> so talented. >> you had insight for us on meryl. >> yeah, meryl, 20th nomination. >> wow.
