7:06 am
compliement. 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 soon as next week, robin. >> we'll see if that happens. thank you. >> 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. sean spicer went into this briefing room over the weekend because president trump was upset and wanted him to come out here and deliver a tongue lashing at the press. he did that. it did not go over well. he refused to
7:07 am
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 did acknowledge some of the information 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 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 presses with the press and president trump 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. what i am told there is one leading contender, neal

7:48 am
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 certainly is a felony. >> emotional trauma. that's what this case is, 100%. 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 could face off for the first time since brady was suspended for four games after the deflategate scandal 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

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 coals and he holes 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 shellacked the indianapolis colts 45-7 and outscored them 28-0 in the second half because roger goodell doesn't want that kind of just acrimony, the
7:50 am
to be criticism and all aimed at his direction. 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 deflategate has added to that and thank you, stephen a. sunny, thank you very much. coming up, the oscar 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. so i talked to my doctor. she said... symbicort could help you breathe better,

[ cheers and applause ] >> that's good advice. >> that's right. congratulations, can we just say congratulations to all the nominees, what an honor it is, exciting to all of them. [ applause ] >> wow. >> meryl streep, does she ever not get nominated. >> not in my universe she doesn't. the big surprise 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 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 unpredict. isabelle huppert, natalie portman, emma stone, meryl streep, ruth negga from "loving." it's a fantastic group and like annette bening left out,
8:37 am
blunt left out for "the girl on the train," 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 strong, greta gerwig and elle fanning. 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 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 and a big surprise that pixar does not get a nomination in feature film for "finding dory." two disney films instead. >> i was going to ask 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 animated film.

8:43 am
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 and talked about this movie and how moving it is. 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 judiciary dawson 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 standing out on the sidewalk pacing around.
8:44 am
have you gone to the front desk -- >> 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'll 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. and a 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. every other nominee i assume is in sleepwear because it's so early in hollywood this time of day. >> 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 what it is and for them it's got to be very exciting when
8:45 am
>> try to tell yourself i'm just happy with the nomination. don't have to worry about the rest. >> he was surprised so i mean, 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 nomination. >> 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 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. >> great flips and great performances from
8:46 am
mahershala ali, he's been somebody that's been eyeing this a couple 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. >> naomie harris, you usually see her all glam and for her to take the role 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 people haven't seen it should take the time to. >> he also will probably win.

back now. talk about all the nominees and congratulating them. 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? 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? how did he tell
8:50 am
>> he was screaming and then i was screaming and then he calls my mom 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" but it's got this kind of recognition and hopefully will encourage moore 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, 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 people had a budget of between $300 and
8:51 am
movie so it was really, really low budget and nobody has 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 one of the most beautiful movies i've ever seen and also because barry explained to me the character i play, an amalgamation of his mother and -- >> 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. >> that is the best,
8:52 am
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 nomination is the 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 rec in addition 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. and we will see you, my friend, on the red carpet. enjoy your day. >> i look forward to it. >> all right. >> i know, exactly. >> every designer in the world right now is like, get me naomie harr harris' phone number. >> so beautiful. >> insight on meryl. >> yeah, meryl, 20th nomination. >> congratulations, meryl.
