The music icon, both the


contestants course hop quickly

better at something than

together.


>> Just another reminder that

that game show responses live


forever. On the Internet so

talented teenager in an all


debt families headed to the

>> Yeah, hoda coming on sharing

one of the only ones we found

Telco to right in there.

Way good luck to the yeah.


>> And final more and more our

buddy Anthony Anderson, the


actor recently moved to New

York which I'm psyched about


new golfing partner is going to

be filming long order and it


looks like he's getting the

welcome wagon literally check


out how a couple of kind

strangers helped Anthony get


home from the big shopping

trip.


>> Have no idea who these

people are but I'm driving a


vehicle right now because I

didn't want the best by the


Biden tv's from a new place in

New York and I have a driving


home but didn't tell me he had

a friend in the car.


>> He's taken that day is 2

hours.


>> Right there and I


>> what's going on gas to at

home, but well here in New York


>> And a couple more for you

we're going to start with Joe


Jonas during last night's

episode of the Tonight Show Joe


gave an all start the actual

performance of a smash mouth it


from 1999 for


to fall.


Well there's so much going on

that is like smash mouth meets


lame is it so wrong. It's

almost right.


>> That's a fun thing to watch

finally Gwen Stefani and Larry,


us Navy a post on instagram

when trading in the glitz and


glam to dress up like your

favorite country boy.


Well if you think that begs the

question who work that I think


we all know the answer to that

it is Gwen Stefani all day and


every day twice on Sunday for

that matter.


All right, those are your

headlines, we've got a lot more


ahead coming up next a inside

look at a new show if you need


a laugh, it's called our flag

means death is coming up.


flag means death a new HBO Max

comedy as a naive aristocrat


turned pirate. When he meets

the elusive black Beard all


sorts of crazy shenanigans

ensue andriese told us all


about it.


Well flag mean stiff is loosely

based on a true story about an


aristocratic and a very wealthy

landowner and 1717 who dipped


in Barbados who decided to have

a midlife crisis and leave


everything head.


And don't become a pirate's you

offensive your pod comfortable


out.


But come up.


Very often date but not only

did he


hit to the high seas he then

and counted the greatest part


of the whole black did and they

got along. But it's the


opposite the track thing I

think is well obviously,


but they wanted to both they

each other that did really


kept his devilish why he's in

mind and was going to steal his


identity so it was when I

started to really


that he realized maybe I don't

want to do that and they


started to


get inside each other's hits

and revealed they had


similarities with their

upbringing and there. They have


their fathers and to what drove

them to be who they and so that


was those connections that my

the close a sustained. Yeah,


he said Gentlemen, he's a man

of wealth and he's the kind


sold but very last he kills

with


kindness


all right so you're that

gentleman pirate thing well


stocked he had a a bad father

experience that's for sure


and I think he didn't want to

be in the state he was in with


his marriage which was

organized, you know part of the


aristocracy is that they do

what they're told.


And so he wasn't happy and he

would escape through reading


and fantasizing about adventure

he didn't really know what he


was doing, but you've got to

give them something for the


courage.


To live the game and to not

just except what you have you


know any live lots but stayed

twice states on a parade is


just over the top and things

that not necessary including


much of the things he's

wearing, but I feel good that


make him feel good so he wanted

to Micah part ship the same and


the same way said he built a

library on the ship obviously


because he is an avid reader he

told everyone could rate but


really sending him and maybe

one or 2 others.


>> I mean brings an entire

library to see each and they


have a fireplace a ridiculous

idea with you know on board a


ship that could easily catch

fire because this candles


everywhere. He's got to exit

the reward rifle Lizza extra


outfits that he definitely

doesn't age.


And


yeah, I think it's nice little

flourishes on the ship that


sort of keeps him happy because

you know he's so out of his


company time and the well the


part is definitely dressing up

and improvised comedy as my 2


favorite things and just

working with a great cost and


some bull group of people from

different parts of the world,


we'll have the same vision and

that was to make something


beautiful funny and uplifting.


>> That's how they make people

feel underdressed from the your


the one shot.


>> I would love to improvise as

much as possible. But


unfortunately, the scripts were

really good. So we had to stick


to them. But we did get time to

improv off the scripts now


again I just like doing it.

And also when you with tai chi


he's very improv heavy. So I we

work together we get a lot of


scenes together we pretty much

say what we want to have the


I think my favorite scene

sci-fi to shoot that hike was


time.


during episode.


7 I think when we are on the

treasure hunt. And that's when


we get quite close and we


it was sitting around the fire

and you'll see that saying that


we were talking about I think a

restaurant I think.


>> And come to restore.


You want to get in it's going

to be very popular.


>> And yeah, that was a little

light on the spot and icon


believe we


didn't crack out during a time

when I you know we can do


comedy till the cows come home,

it's easy.


But getting date and personal

and dramatic is something that


we don't often do. So the same

is like for example in it said


6. We had you know it really

hits home with with black the


it when he realizes you know

the crack and and what he did


to his dad how he ended up

killing a stand.


>> Looking good is the Heat.


This would mean friends.


>> I knew for him and it was

genuine because we buy have


father issues ourselves and so

it was kind of that it was.


Yeah, the parent out


between fiction and fact of

life and and


create a that she was so so

close that time.


It was it was one Jenny sure

that we we buy that shame


together and you can see that I

think in that


and the showers are some of

those emotions are real to pick


a favorite saying I think a

personal favorite would be


right at the beginning just


walking down this study is

commanding my crew for the


first time looking expects

Traficant.


>> And given the for about 2

little bit Paris page.


>> That was fantastic because

we did that on Day one and was


the best time I had made

everyone on the cast. So it


felt real to me and getting

these ridiculous reactions back


from them and then coming


together with a little slogan.


>> We talked it through as a

cruise.


>> And that kind of really

summed up the whole show for us


because no matter what beaches

we would go on you know,


I felt like we would talk us

right and it's it's getting in


touch with your emotions which

you know


mid of always had trouble doing

at 300 is a guy I mean I'm sure


they really had trouble during

at the end in sight to to


modernize and to really get to

grips with that idea I think is


really a mentally healthy.


I think the deal is will

definitely say that if you get


outside you come inside and

take a risk and use courage and


use a little bit of confidence

just get it from wherever you


can even if it's just your

outfits you can change your


life and you can guy places you

never thought you got and make


your dreams come true just by

being around people being


positive and


yeah, giving giving up, but I

think there's something there


for all of us to take.


>> And you know forget you can

stream our flag means death on


HBO Max, and the final 2

episodes are out today, take


note of that coming up next now

we watch giving us a sneak peek


at her latest thriller.


on pop star plus the latest


e


film from star. Now we watch

called infinite storm is based


on the true story of an

experienced climber is Pam


bales as she ascends Mount

Washington will now be Watts


was nice enough to swing by the

3rd hour here and tell us all


about that role.


>> This morning we are catching

up with a Hollywood superstar


Naomi Watts is nominated for

Academy Awards for her roles in


the films, 21 grams and the

impossible.


>> In her latest film infinite

storm she heads to the


mountains portraying

experienced climber, Pam bales


now in a blizzard hit spam

encounters a stranded man and


she's going to stop at nothing

to get them both to safety.


>> Tammy us its search and

rescue.


And the else.


>> You guys


>> what the. It. Help Sir.


Just me.


No cell phone service to get to

the parking lot either


you know back to the east.


No 2 Sunni.


>> They'll be good morning.

Yeah, yeah. Out there. So this


will be infinite storm, I mean

it's great it's determination.


It's compassion besides those

elements what was it that


really attracted you to to do

something like this a story


like this in elements like

yeah.


>> Well, the extraordinary

woman have bales and this act


of kindness that she gives to

this other has said in a very


extreme situation and the

elements as you say, but also


how are asked how


how willingness you know and

her strength and had


discipline. She was able to put

this man before her arm AIDS


which was to survive herself

and I just was blown away by


her on a on a on the first

phone call that we had record


it conversations that she had

with the writer and she was


also tackling her and demons

you know having lost her


children. And so this was a big

story in many ways and the


power of nature, how it heals

it's such a good reminder.


What you can get out there and

the quiet of the mountains and


the beauty of nature is it's

really want to talk about the


elements a little more because

you you really did notice the


silence in the film as you're

watching it. I mean it was so


intense. What was that like

funny because you reveal the


filming in the mountains in the

elements, you're freezing


right, yeah below 0

temperatures extreme winds and


I mean one day we had a the

U.S. electrical storm we were


up there on the mountain we

were told. We had to get off


because it is dangerous and it

was a power cut we couldn't get


down the mountain because the

chair lift was operating.


And we thought we may have to

camp out for the night. And


that was rather and scary.

But yeah we were well equipped


we had Mountaineers guy guiding

us. But and also you realize


this is what Pam deals with

only time that this was


certainly what took place that

day did you camp out for the


night or you didn't know we

didn't have good question.


Yeah, it was a few hours and

then and then we were okay,


switching gears a little bit

can you believe it's been 20


years since King Kong has been

out it's yeah crazy I buy


quickly it certainly did.

I mean 20 years ago, take


suspects like 2002 which

doesn't sound like it was 20


>> But you recently at

Universal and I love this


years ago.


picture that you posted on

instagram you know with the


caption when your teenager

catches you eyeing an old


flame. What are your favorite

memories from from that movie.


>> So many working with Peter

Jackson in his life and his


glorious team. But also the

community we're working


together for 7 months and we

became really close family


almost create it is great

friends and now. Yeah, just


kind of an iconic role and Dara

and not as David Lynch houy


said to me, you know anyone

that sits in the hand of King,


Kyle bass.


>> Is a movie star for like.

What you've got netflix series


coming out. Brian Murphy, it

based on that that watch or


give the people or sending the

letters a to the House watch


your house. Yes, yes that that

is a story that some of us


know, and I'm not allowed to

say too much about.


>> It's a crazy story, yeah, a

family that moved to the


suburbs done


by this beautiful, start

getting letters home and we


don't know who they're from.


>> I remember that still has a

little yeah, yeah Naomi thank


you so much really appreciate

your movie out about that's


right if that storm is in

theaters coming up tomorrow.


>> Always great to hear from

Naomi that looks good still to


come some 90's nostalgia with

Sarah Jessica Parker while she


was filming the classic hocus

pocus


out back in 19 93 and at that

time Sarah Jessica Parker


stopped by today. So we thought

you know in honor of Sarah's


57th birthday today we thought

to be fine to take a look back


a little blast from the past if

you will.


>> Jessica Parker, good morning

welcome back to today, nice to


see you then it's not your

friends call you Sarah, but


your family call the Sarah

Jessica. Well if there's is a


peculiar set of crossing those

who have known me the longest


tend to come ii-era those who

know me more recently County


Sarah Jessica and then there's

of to kill your group in the


middle of that, you know,

Kitty, hey you what's your


name, whatever all right one

because I just because since we


just can't this morning all

right tell me a little bit


about this movie how much fun

was it to play a witch with


that Midler and Kathy, the

Jimmy it was. It was great fun,


I mean they were obviously the

elements were there so it's


sort of up to us to you know

the thing that was most that


was most fun and most so it

creatively satisfying was that


there was very little about our

characters beyond descriptions


of what they do in the context

of scripts so we really got to


me especially for the first

time had a chance to really


create a character which meant

like a voice and and finding


physical stuff and and you know

learning to fly and we all have


our own separate individual

ways of flying in or take us


for a very different and unique

and it was great and what kind


of which did you want to create

what kind of which is Sarah


Sanderson well, my theory is

that she is the most


fundamentally evil of all of

them because she is so not


bright he's he's not

calculating that is her innate


nature to be evil and and

milder sisters, it's a it's a


learned saying it's like you

know learning to like live or


you know they have like learned

this evil and I've just pick it


up it's you know it's part of

my environment that I wanted


her to be truly evil in in in

in the most and calculating way


and still somehow the seductive


so whether or not that came to

fruition is you know not for me


to say, but that was sort of my

attention you worked coming up


with the right voice didn't you

tell me some of the voices you


played with and why you finally

settled on.


What we saw. Well, I think

ultimately was sort of child by


air and and I would sit is

cautiously. My first idea was


to do I don't know if you

recall Dana Carvey doing George


Michael on the on on weekend

update on the news on site at


life but he said this traffic

in depression of George


Michael. And I thought I would

do that has about a 4 year-old


English schoolboy


but I thought it was hysterical

like I would be my hotel room


practicing this voice and I

thought was really funny and


then I finally had the courage

to try on the set and there was


just not a peep that was funny

at all it just didn't fly.


Some people they want to sort

of do a Maryland voice and I


thought well that's been done

and that sort of for it and and


so that I somehow surf found

this peculiar this this voice


in between that how does that

voice and


it sounds stupid. Can you do a

little bit of a I guess it's


the inside here. Yes, you know

it's a bit of a helium. It was


like a small 4 year-old boy on

helium. That was what I wanted


to life but she's practically

you know, mooch that means that


these fans like points barely

speaks to. I went back and just


appointed you think a lot of

your well a lot of your scenes


were cut out. Yeah, I think I

think I wasn't this point I


think that you know you work on

something here about 6 months


shooting this movie. So you

know you expect to see your


face like endlessly on the

screen and nationally that


doesn't happen anyway, mean

there's always editing that


this was they made a choice and

editing which you know


philosophically in for a

business point of view I


totally understand and in fact

support but it's that first


shocking when you see a movie

and


you're not in it as much, but

I'm really very place for the


movie an end.


And it's really nice because

it's the first time I can


really say I endorse and

encourage parents to like take


their children see this movie

that there's no like it's


morally and I think politically

and and just for good time


acceptable on every level son

very pleased with that I was


working with that. I know you

all knew each other or you knew


of for because you have the

exact Boise was you're right.


Obviously you know it was from

her career big Lad have the


same voice coach, yeah, yeah,

we didn't we didn't when I was


doing and by the way she was

doing the divine miss M on


Broadway and we had the same

Saint Pete I like I said that


because I know exactly who she

was and I think I could have


been like hired help throughout

as I mean who knew I wasn't at


this time and ice to get to my

singing lessons early so that I


could listen to her. She's to

do these Italian vocal when she


saw these incredibly 7 o'clock

tick variations of music and


you'd be hiding it in the

kitchen, listening and then she


would leave and I would mimic

everything she had done.


>> Who doesn't love that one

hocus pocus and 29 years later.


We can look forward so this

focus too because it's coming


in the fall once again, quick

happy birthday shout out to


Sarah Jessica Parker that's

going to do it for us don't


forget the Oscars on Sunday, we

have all day long are big pop

I'm chassis posting were back

shop all day all about hidden

gyms you know those products


that solve the problem fill the

void in your wardrobe, those


products that we didn't even

know we needed but now we can't


live without wait until you see

what made the list from what I


use on my roots when I can't

make it to the salon to a quick


and easy way to clean your

makeup brushes without water


and remember see that qr code

on the corner of your screen.

smartphone to scan it for


instant access to the products

on the show today or you can


text shot to the number below

to shop all the products we're


sharing with you today. So

let's get to it.


Instead of hidden gems we

should call this one hidden


roots, I am real to introduce

you to the color. Wow route


cover up which is come to my

rescue on more than one


occasion I totally get why they

have well as part of your name


and I was introduced to this

little wonder by a pro makeup


artist who is helping me get my

glam on before the show.


And she noticed I had a little

route so she took out this


darker color and she got a

little brush. Applicator it was


so easy and she brushed it

straight on to my roots so it


covered it up. It looked

amazing and I thought that was


that but then oh my goodness my

jaw dropped because she took


out the blonde color took the

little brush and she rushed on


blonde highlights, I felt like

I had a touch up at the salon


and I couldn't believe it

because it didn't feel sticky


and the brand says it actually

has reflective properties and


that's what makes it blend in

with your hair really well,


plus I really like that it

didn't transfer tonight,


lows, I slept in it it didn't

transfer to my pillow and the


brand also says that it is

water and sweat with us it is


completely temporary it stay my

hair until I took a shower and


I washed it out and it comes in

8 different shades


this color wow to cover up is

amazing. Now if you've been


looking for that next level

moisturizer to soothe hydrate


revived Ellen dry winter skin.

Then your thing to love our


next hidden gem, the OC and

daria algae body oil I also


have been on the hunt for a

one-step ultra hydrating


moisturizer for my body.

I feel like I'm always focused


on moisturizing and trying to

hydrate my face and I can tell


that my arms and my legs and

the rest of my body, especially


after this long winter also

want some attention so I heard


so much buzz about that see a

body while so I decided I.


>> Had to try it and I'm so

glad that I did I think it


really does live up the hype

and what I love so much about


it is it feels so so rich and

that sort really fast I put it


on after I got out of the

shower, I Pat dry and then I


threw my leggings just about 30

seconds after. So that's really


cool and the brand says that

it's designed to not only help


hydrate and moisturize but it

also helps to nourish the skin


and they also say it helps to

from the skin.


The secret ingredient that

everybody so excited about is


on Darya algae which is a fancy

word for seed and the brand


also says that they can harvest

the seaweed and they soak it in


barrels for up to see 6 months

so I'm thrilled that I found


>> So let's talk fashion these

fines happened to be one of the


this.


bigger trends on the horizon,

the split him can and you would


have thought that such a small

detail could I had so much cool


look at what it can in fact

sometimes it's the details that


take something from average to

elevated. So if you haven't yet


seen the split him can't trust

me you're going to see it


absolutely everywhere and what

it is it's a little slit down


at thanks Pam of the front.

And what I like so much about


this trend is not only does it

elevates your average can't or


trouser or gene or even lagging


it also Long Beach for lag it's

really flattering and also.


It's first of all you can wear

with heels or you can wear it


with sneakers so first we have

a vegan leather straight cut


can't from Abercrombie and as

you can see it's got this great


little split come here and what

I like about it is if you're


wearing it with fields where

your sneakers. Get your shoes,


a little time to shine. Now

we've also seen this trend in a


more casual way in leggings and

I think


that these Ross fans like

things with the split him here


are such a great way to have a

little jazz to your liking


routine and again this is also

a long getting you know


sometimes when you're wearing

your leggings and the him stop


secure and call. So from the

side. Look at a full long life.


>> So I think that these are a

real winner.


>> Next you're not going to

believe this mini knit sweater


dress my jaw dropped when I

found it on Amazon, I mean talk


about a diamond this for us is

in wed of least eilish and I


can't believe the price it

really does look expensive and


the sweater dress is such a big

trend but


at times it's not the most

flattering dress to wear so


what I like so much about this

dress is it has that really


flattering wrap silhouette it's

time to in a really really


light weight and high quality

feeling. It now. This stress


has a lot of bells and whistles

so we talked about the rap


select which I love but what I

also like that it is you cut


the RAF detail in the front.


The back so that gives you the

ability for the Bush down the


shoulders, you want to give a

little peek of shoulders or you


can wear it up if you want a

more modest look I also love


committee link another great

thing about this just so


versatile you can dress it up

you can dress it down where


they he'll throw on some types

and you can wear it to work.


So if you you've been wanting

to test drive the cut out trend


without spending a bundle.


>> We've come across another

gym checks. All the boxes,


this sweater may be called a

cold shoulder, but in my


opinion this style is hot

ensure cut outs elevate and


take any top to the next level.


This cut out trend has been

such a big deal but generally


we see this come out trend on

more form-fitting silhouettes.


Oh I love that this is a really

purpose way to get in on this


trend and we've got the civil

case. Details of the pot a


little loose oversized knit

sweater. So this gives it a lot


of versatility and this really

is a sweater that I would throw


on when a floundering around it

home or I put it on with some


full leather leggings are

swayed leggings I go out to


dinner with it so there's a lot

of ways that you can wear it


and this was a really nice way

it's not too heavy so next we


know cozy slide sandal is quite

possibly the most beloved shoe


of the past couple of seasons.

So when we came upon these


flash floods.


>> We couldn't wait to slip our

feet right on in. And so these


lights have everything that we

look for in the trend they've


got that double strapped with

the adjustable Bacall and these


slide in my opinion is this

sheer laying it is really


really crash and if you're

worried that cheerleading is


going to go out of style one

spring hits.


You are in luck we are going to

see hundreds of cheering this


spring, it is not just for

winter. And also I really love


the look of the cork and of

course, the rubber soul,


which means you can wear them

both inside and out and they


come in lots of different

colors and you want to take a


break on the push here link

they also have the regular


soul,


lastly we've got a bag that

I've had my Island for a while


now and I was so excited to see

that it is back in stock.


Yes, I was on the hunt for 8

fabulous and chic and


affordable tote and I found

this bag, it's called the phone


leather tote with chain detail

and I was so sad because it was


sold out. Well guess what it's

back in stock so I bought 2 the


it again and what I like so

much about this show.


>> His first of all I think it

looks so high end designer,


I think it looks really

expensive.


>> And I love a chain detail

and it hit so well just sort of


on your shoulder and check it

out here so it's that slouchy


effortless a lot so here

>> Oh you are so sweet, we love

it here in Austin we have a lot


more space and I'm just so

excited for this next chapter


kind of evolving from a New

York based lifestyle blogger to


a home and beauty lifestyle

blogger here in Texas. And I


love your blog so many good

jams listen today, FEMA


episode. It's all about hidden

gems and you come across a lot


of products right. How do you

decide what's worthy of being


showcased


I like to showcase products

that I feel like really stand


out and a lot of people asked

questions about so for example,


I'm on social media every

single day on instagram and


tiktok so I really get to

connect my audience and his


women and what they asked those

questions about I feel like


really are trending that's

what's there is about right.


Yeah, the trending items items

that we can use so before we


get into these products, the

bachelor nation fans would have


my head if I ask you questions

about your experience being on


the show what's your most

memorable experience from that


time.


My most memorable experience to

be living in the bachelor


mansion with all the women in

California it was such a lovely


experience kind of like being

in a sorority House and I feel


like I learned so much about

beauty from being with all the


sister is in the show with me

because I don't have any


sisters and we would all you

know try different kinds of


blowouts and really connect

over 80 so it's really it's


already House except Allah


fighting, but the price.

I is this one guy at the end,


I'm sure that was awesome

experience OK, let's get to the


goods here, let's start with

hair, so you brought these


rollers which from dry bar, but

tell me about them so they have


clips how to use them. So the

thing that's trending was on


tiktok right now is really

achieving that at-home blowout


and really getting that big

volume at home. And you can do


it a couple ways, but one we

can do it is these self


adhesive carolers and what's

amazing is the secret to


getting the big blowout is to

sure that when you apply the


roller at the end is really

secure. Like this. And then you


go from there and really create

that type of role and then once


you get your roller to the top

you apply an alligator clips


and let your hair cool with the

Heat like this as you do your


makeup and then after 10 or 15

minutes, you have this huge


beautiful blowout at home.

I love that's the way to make


sure I get this right you're

applying it to wet or dry hair.


You are applying it to a half

dry hair city on here so as you


are using your blow dryer

you're blowing it out. And once


you finish drying, your hair,

you'd end up like the he roller


and Lake well in place if I say

that right, yeah I think I got


I think I want to try this on

my here, let's move on to make


>> This next product, I'm

almost tempted to eat it,


up.


it's not edible folks but I'm

told that it's a cookie


highlighter.


>> Yes, the pollen cookie

highlighter and I the full


pallet right here I use this

every single day and one thing


about social media is really

making your make up top and


this high later after I have

tried dozens and dozens of


them. I have done my nose right

now, but it really stands out


and reflects the light is

incredible you could even use


it on the inside and you're

here drops of your eyelids and


create this almost iridescent

book and you can even use it up


here on under your brows for a

more open I look and as a


highlighter over your

cheekbones so wherever you


client it's really going to

make your highlighted areas


standout and this is really a

hidden gem, I'm ups.


>> Sus with this I just put a

little bit onto my hand my and


his twin glistening the shine

is sensational. All right so


let's move on from the make-up

now these glasses for small,


it's a 2 pack, so you had my

heart a little you talk about a


2 pack of sunglasses but the

90's are back in a big way how


to wear them without them being

to costume.


So the way where then sprint

everyday love is to wear.


>> Charles, I liked him he's

like you see right now I'm


right away to college for free

business appropriate. But when


you put these on and make sure

outfit totally trendy so this 2


pack is so cute. It comes both

with the flag and the tortoise


shell and so I just keep these

in my purse and my car and you


could be on trend where every

your head too.


>> I love the idea of a 2 pack

you can get the 2 pack keep it


entirely for yourself or if

you're feeling generous,


you could share with the best

to talk about already houses


this would be a good gift for

this or a tease. All right,


let's move on to the next item

that we have here I love the


law. It's a great gift for

someone him 10 we just moved


into their first home, let's

talk about it.


>> These are so stunning, I

have probably 12 of these in my


house, this is the larger size,

but they also come in the


smaller size and with so

elegant about this double sided


cleared last month. Is you can

see obviously whatever you're


drinking through its its

aesthetic pleasing and just


elevates the morning coffee.

So if you are on instagram you


can for your milk and people

can see all of the magic that's


happening in there and it's

just really a beautiful home


piece that you could use every

day and kind of start your


morning off right plus why your

coffee is hot, you don't for


your hand or you can microwave

it and it keeps it warm in


there while you're still

holding it.


>> So it's great it looks so

cute, I speaking of things that


look you have to tell you

artificial plants a little


scary to me because I'm like

how do I pay my house without


the looking fake, I like the

ones you have.


>> So I've been on the hunt is

now that we move to a new home


in Texas to just have a lot of

greenery in our home and one


home decor trend that's

happening right now is new


shows that also cost of

greenery and so all plants are

makeup and it just creates a


different color cough and so

couple different ones right now

instant access to all the

products on the show today or


you can check shop to the

number below to shop all the


products we're sharing with you

today. So let's start in the


kitchen, mixing bowls are in a

secret kitchen, hack that this


set in particular is making the

rounds on tiktok as you can see


this center of the large lead

can be replaced with a greater


attachment which is genius

because that's one less faulty


kitchen tool that needs

cleaning and storing and if


that wasn't enough the inside

of the bowl is also in grades


with measurements which is

amazing when you're cooking


anything are prepping anything

and what's really cool is that


the bottom is silicone. So it's

not going to slip and slide all


over the counter. They can stay

nice and sturdy when you're


cooking to store them you just

Ness them inside one another


and you can tuck them away any

kept


and this next one is for all

the bakers out there it's an


adjustable rolling pen that has

been a consistent Amazon


best-seller that combines for

movable desks that can help you


get your Joe to that preferred

level a fix reviewers say it's


really easy to use you could

use it on everything from


Peachtree though to pizza dough

it's really need you could see


all the different ones here

ages Leyden whichever one you


want a pending on the thickness

and he just threw it in and you


don't have to worry about

keeping different sizes in your


kitchen just use this one.


Next stop electrical cords and

outlets can be an eyesore for


this brand created a

best-selling hacked to make


them blend in with the rest of

your home decor you can see


here this plate plugs right

into your standard outlet.


And it has an extension cord

which is attached with 3


additional outlets so because

it's so thin you can actually


have your furniture sit flush

against the wall with his team


and sensory gadgets aren't just

for younger kids reviewers of


all ages are really loving this

digits pier which is actually


made up of 12 magnetic, he says

it's an upgraded version of


that digits spinner that became

popular a few years co but it's


been re imagined into an

activity that actually gives


you something to do with her

hands. It comes in 4 different


bright colors from pop with a

lava and it could be used to


create different shapes and

structures.


Practical and durable and roomy

are just a few of the buzzword


reviewers have been using to

describe this total, I actually


have this and I use it for

everything from my day-to-day


tote bags to grocery shopping

and even a diaper bag over the


last year searches for tow at

carry bags have soared by 800%


according to Google trends

reviewers love this everlane


bag they love to feel the

fabric and that it's so light


weight and if the scene

washable so you can take care


of it really easily. Now let's

talk about hair, this is hardly


a new class hair treatment and

according to the brand it is


made with La Mellor technology

which is made to target damaged


areas of your hair and for

layers to protect and nurture


stripped it works on all hair

types and the brand suggest


using one to 2 doses for fine

hair and 2 to 3 for thick hair,


and one of our producers

actually used it and she said


okay for shinier and softer

hair after just one use.


>> And the hashtag hashtag

stashed and she has taken over


tiktok and inspire people to

make their out there basically


scrunchies that have a hidden

pocket for storing small


essential is like your brain

when you're on the go you can


see here, I have mine


pop it in all you have to do is

zip it up and you can actually


use the spreadsheets a best

seller on Amazon, and you don't


need to get crafty these are

super cute because they're


going to help you keep those

items within reach of all


times.


>> And lastly most of the time

it feels easier to invest in a


brand new set of makeup brushes

can go through the process of


cleaning them all and this

brush cleaner is a much more


affordable investment and

tiktok is obsessed with it.


The spongy surface makes it so

that you can Rob powder and


callers off your makeup brushes

with B. No more scrubbing


waiting for your brushes to dry

we need them. The most this


cleaner Southeast reusable to

and only needs to be washed


once a week with soap and

water. So you don't need any


water or anything that has a

spongy topping you just take


your brush that's full of

makeup. When you tap it in


and you could see the makeup

coming off.


And you don't need to wait for

them to drier using soap and


water.


And you can go back to doing

your makeup.

cured meats so they're already

cooked enough okay. No word

>> We sat there for like

heating about exactly okay,


let's go ahead and poor aig's

okay. So this is enough that's


enough I have to wait for these

to be bringing all right thing


okay there you go.


I can say.


>> So now go ahead and spread

we're a little because we want


to get everything evenly in

court. There you go in the now


we're going to let it sit her

to get over there. I want to


just look like you just


now anyone under my age a

little bit allowing the running


this to run off and go

underneath.


>> You don't I don't have any

right to have a little bit


well, and they're just make a

whole part help each other and


have it go and then I was okay,

but I want that ice so like any


of this little extra bit of

snow is looking to leave it


like this for one 2nd did you

feel like a spatula like this


is the good implement what you

see is a reverse pass the


rubber spatula okay.


>> Would you rather just put it

happens right here and pulled


over and you want to flip it on

for years.


>> I think I need to learn to

fly. One assist the foot of a


system a system that have

especially under little yet


only use that to help me put my

own the whole thing oh yeah oh


my gosh, no way can I do this,

you know, and it's hard yeah


and everything's hard pressed

to go for the top with what I


was going to leave it that way

on the left hand, okay, yeah,


these different okay, yeah,

we're specialist and are alike


and I'm Alexis tent, but the

flip over scare


haha okay was I know it's going

to fail he want I want to ruin


it.


Go back he does get the rest

over OK, but that wasn't good


like good business post no I

didn't you know your perfect


but is it a look at a poll that

now every toe your phone over


again is okay okay, so the now

you all agree or she's okay to


have the best that we yeah haha

so put it on the for this point


the ground. Oh that's

interesting wise that you want


to flip it over you on the Heat

to sit right on top and which


is a sausage has offered to us.

Pam is my going for it there


you can get all of us it was

all innocent.


We did a good job with bank I

know now I want it, but it


wasn't supposed to be like half

of this or was it supposed to


really be covering some

locations home cooking you know


that you're in the restaurant

owner that this is what you're


about to eat at home. So that

is perfect for at home, but I


want to get in a car now I want

to. They want to put my words


with things like another folder

The system the system that

they're now now now it's


getting kind of Brown is that 2

Brown no you're fine. I mean


look


no you know it is and now this

these guys are falling out.


Well, technically you're going

to OK so you've got to keep


your eyes on the prize that

think they're getting too warm.


Come on, don't know you know

hard act. This is just one part

of breath last we still have to


do the candy bacon and the

powerful pain. Okay, it's also


get get these on the table

right.


think I was going to say you

see if I may be can I just put


it in the microwave can we

still be friends. We could be


friends because of your cooking

the means and the candied bacon


seems intimidating. Yes, super

cells are restaurants are the


home of the candy be okay, this

is our specialty you can not


even come in as a regular big,

we don't offer it either we do


it so over the fact that they

open it for you to get us one


against have a cup of brown

sugar cane for tonight.


Like just pack it a little

packet down


a layer of bacon had


sideways


so there could have been home

the reason why the mic with


isn't the best method. Yeah

because its troubles down the


bacon well that's true, you

know where as you cook it on


the sheet tray reconvene oven

it keeps the bacon the same


with that the big now you have

this like wire rack and foil

yes.


That's right. Yeah.


>> There are dozens of China

towns all across America with


interesting architecture

diverse restaurants, and


specialty shops, it's no wonder

they're popular with locals and


tourists alike.


They also provide places for

new immigrants and for families


to create communities but with

gentrification and all sorts of


problems from the pandemic it's

no wonder that all these


Chinatown are rapidly changing.


>> It's time to head out of

studio one A and hit the road


for a new kind of culinary

adventure follow me as I take


some of the most I kind of

foods around the country and


meet the families behind

together we're going to learn


how a good meal has the power

to connect us to our past our


future.


>> Okay so it's no surprise

there's incredible food to be


found here in Manhattan's

Chinatown folks lining up all


the time, but there used to be

Chinatowns in cities and towns,


big and small all across this

country. In fact the longest


running family owned Chinese

restaurant is in a place you


might never think of


Butte Montana.


>> At the turn of the century

Butte Montana was a bustling


mining out


the invention of electricity

leading to a demand for


conductors like copper. Mining

boom, the city flourished the


demand for labor book,

thousands of immigrants to


Butte they came from so many

countries, including Italy,


Ireland and China it was the

classic portrait of the


American West with gambling so

lose.


Red light district


by 1914 Butte China town was

thriving with over 60 Chinese


owned businesses.


>> Now we're going to prepare

broadly beef and Jerry Tam and


I'm the owner of the Pekin

noodle parlor.


>> The peak first opened as a

tobacco shop and casino run by


Jerry's great uncle yeah 2

years later, I'm adding a


restaurant and the Pekin noodle

parlor was born.


>> This building has 3

different levels, the top level


obviously is that Pekin noodle

parlor and then the second


level on the main Street used

to be a herbal medicine shop.


>> That shop was run by Jerry's

great grandfather. Kim Kwan,


it's crazy to think that.


>> Everything came over from

China.


>> At one time like they didn't

make soy sauce in America,


the noodles for pride and

brought over chefs because they


didn't make fresh kills so the

history of this place really


holds true that this is a

Chinese restaurant from Chinese


immigrants.


>> I met up with culinary

historian grace young to learn


more about America's earliest

Chinatown where was the first


Chinatown and how to get

started.


>> The first trying town is San

Francisco, the first Chinese


came to California. For the

Gold Rush and that was 1848,


and they can because America

needed cheap labor and so from


Gold Rush they ended up doing

farming manufacturing and then


eventually they worked on the

transcontinental railroad and


the first trying time for him

because America wanted cheap


labor, but they didn't want the

Chinese to live with lights so


they were ostracized from white

communities.


>> So talk to me about that

first wave of of Chinese


immigration to the U.S..


>> The Chinese came from 7

Shiner from principally from


the area can Tom and there was

tremendous prejudice against


the Chinese they were Lynch and

because the Chinese were


willing to work for lower

wages. They were seen as the


reason why Americans are

suffering so much of the blame


was unfairly placed on the

Chinese.


>> In 1882 Congress side, the

Chinese exclusion act into law.


It banned Chinese from

migrating to the U.S. it marks


the only time in American

history that entire race or


ethnic group was banned from

immigrating.


>> But the interesting thing

about this exclusion act was


that there was actually

exemption for Chinese tourists


students, teachers and also

merchants.


>> A landmark court case in

1915, classified Chinese


restaurant owners as merchants.


>> And it gave them a way to

circumvent exclusion act of


1882.


>> It was this exemption that

allowed Jerry's great uncle to


open Pekin noodle parlor in

Butte paving a path for more


family members to immigrate to

the U.S. and help the business.


Jerry father Danny want arrived

in the U.S. in 1947 as a team.


>> Ever since he was 14 years

old he's been working at the


peak of little parlor and he

just started with the support


walls of Washington says, and

then he learned how to cook


and he slowly just started to

grade himself into managing


that and working with the

director says the staff.


>> Danny taking over the

restaurant in the 1950's


spending years turning it into

a pillar of the local community


I've been coming here for at

least 50 years the give me


plenty of food I never walk

away hungry.


>> I love coming to work

because of all the people I


work with like they choose

really nice people and your


father probably played over

10,000 people at this you know


throughout this whole entire

life. So it's interesting to


know that fish nearly 5 to 6

generations of people that you


know have worked there.


>> The menu of Pekin noodle

parlor hasn't changed much over


>> We do what they call chop

suey what shops who he is is to


the years.


that of leftover vegetables

that are kind of mix together


some gravy and served on top of

our main goals we've been


sitting there for over a 110

years.


>> Shops is in large part why

Chinese became so popular


across the United States.


>> Chop suey was the first time

America experienced a culinary


craze, a food critics and it's

starting at the end of the 19th


century that there are

Americans who are venturing


into trying to out the way they

got them to even experiment


with Chinese food was to make a

stir fry that was actually


quite bland so they used bamboo

shoots water chestnuts onions


oftentimes that were celery for

many years.


>> Chinatown's with the only

places where 9 Chinese


Americans could sample Asian

flavors.


>> Americans are going to

Chinatown some were curious.


They watch experience curio

shops, Chinese opera.


>> With increased tourism

Chinatown's of large cities


groove.


It was a different story in the

tent like many mining towns


Butte lost many of its workers

as production slowed in the


1950's.


>> But the copper who ran dry

and the people start to pick up


and just kind of


move it move on and move back

to their families and the


bigger states.


>> As miners left Butte for new

opportunities, it's Chinatown


disappeared in the early 1900

there were 7 chop suey


restaurant listed in the Butte

city directory today only the


Pekin noodle parlor remains

open.


Jerry Tim runs the Pekin noodle

parlor in Butte Montana.


>> People may know this is all

the changes, fresh eye of


America. Hello, it is so much

history.


>> Despite peak its historic

status. Jerry says he was never


pressured by family to join the

business.


>> I never learned to cook and

tally came back back in round


2009. Because light,


any Asian American and parents

what are their kids to go to


college so we all went to

college is up around the nation


and to get a better education

to become a lawyer or a doctor


and what have you but I would

just caution and what is great


about that as I got to see the

world because of it.


>> In 2004 Jerry even appearing

on Bravo's project runway.


But a few years later family

duty calling him home.


>> And the First Amendment had

a stroke so my dad news help


you know taking care of her and

take care of the restaurant,


it was really my father because

they were in a generation where


they loved each other every

day. And they were just best


>> After Jerry's mom passed

Jerry and his dad begin


friends.


operating Pekin together.


>> He never stopped working so

he was working here all the way


up to 85 to we couldn't make up

the stairs anymore my father


and I spent every day together

at a church he was that he was


healthy all the way to the air.

The best of my ability I can


do. My father passed in

November. And it was really you


know heartbreaking he didn't

want to say goodbye to


my sisters are being here this

restaurant or the community,


he loved the Montana.


>> Jerry now runs Pekin noodle

parlor with his cousin Nelson


together they're working to

preserve a family legacy.


Keep a piece of Chinese

American history alive in an


unlikely place.


>> I've been asked the question

was the future the peak and and


the best answer I can give you

is, let's just keep it the


wet start to change anything

because that's what people come


state


here for the and have their

parking spots they have their


boost they have their favorite

place at the Mar think they


want any change because this is

a place that just Michael.


>> While New York City is home

to America's largest Chinatown


the honor of the older, those

to San Francisco and that's


where the Far East Cafe is

located it is one of the last


remaining historic Chinese

banquet Hall.


After a two-year hiatus, this

celebrated venue hosted the


64th annual missed Chinatown

USA pageant a lunar New Year


tradition.


The occasion marking a

triumphant milestone for the


century-old institution.


>> Bill Lee has owned the farm

I think since 1999 his


daughter, Kathy working by his

side as the manager.


>> He put me into the

restaurant to kind of


understand the roots of


our culture he wanted me to

remember that you know China


town is about community is

about traditions is about


culture.


>> For many in the community

Chinese banquet halls are more


than just venues for special

events.


>> I feel that far East is kind

of like a second home for you


know a lot of our peaches that

come in because they feel so


comfortable so much history and

so many memories, you know,


a lot of patients that have

been here they told me they're


like home. My parents had my

rage in your party, it's very


similar to like about his and

that was like 50 something


years ago.


>> And that history is

everywhere you look at far


>> The ceilings like my dad

mention the high ceilings


moldings modems are all

regional no match in trouble on


40 from China. In the 1920's.

So there are over a 100 years


old.


>> For the last few decades,

there were 5 giant banquet


style restaurant in San

Francisco's Chinatown


but with rising rents and

gentrification most have since


close their doors.


By early 2020.


Only 2 banker has remained.


>> The Far East Cafe planned to

celebrate its 100 year


anniversary with a big

celebration instead it's now


planning to close its doors.


>> At the start of the pandemic

the restaurant state afloat by


cooking meals for senior

citizens and low income


residents in China to that cold

but hahntown night we applied


for it PPP loan suddenly got

over $200,000.


We also received money from the

feed and flu program and our


landlord gave us 6 months of

free rent some thought


beyond covid a different type

of Irish brought more harm


Chinatowns across the country.

Anti Asian hate crimes soaring


by nearly 340% in 2021.


>> When this started happening,

I felt very very sad and also


very angry because I liked why

is this happening to trying


town why is it happening to our

country we know for these


people to target elderly people

to pushing down to rob them


don't be realize that they have

grandparents to or they have


unsettled by Beach and the

happened to their parents POW


with the field then.


>> People saw the attacks when

they watch the news and heard


reports, and they got even more

scared, they don't want to go


out even for special events

like the mid autumn festival.


We tried to invite them, but

they didn't want to come.


>> We used to be open until 10

o'clock before pandemic


sometimes was stay out here

until midnight if we had events


now we can't we can't do that

we changed the business hours


to close at 7, 7, 30 because

safety is the most important


>> Business owners across China

town still face hostility.


thing.


George and Cindy Chen open

China live in 2017.


>> We've been lucky, I'm we're

going to have a couple


instances where


you know people scream

anti-asian slurs we're


concerned about our employees

you know coming to work in and


being harassed.


I think that ignorance is very

unfortunate.


>> China live is a massive

market place with multiple


restaurants, it's in a building

that once housed a banquet Hall


like far East.


>> I remember coming to away

here when I was in college I


who I think will be 5,000

people in life 6 restaurants.


But unfortunately, you know

real estate was getting very


expensive. So it's not very

cost effective if you don't


have that business.


>> 2 years ago the couple had

to lay off 200 workers.


However with the support of

partners, George and Cindy were


able to pivot their business on

a few fronts.


>> We did you know


the ghost kitchen was something

outside the box. So we have 10


locations in the Bay Area.


Sauceda Berkeley.


And and they can order food

from those ghost kitchens.


>> Ghost kitchens, prepare

restaurant, quality food


exclusively for delivery or

takeout.


>> We sold so many key conducts

we didn't know what to do with


all that that that so what do

you do make popcorn with it.


So that's why we have a

different popcorn.


>> As business picked up on

China live was able to rehire


100 workers.


Despite an uncertain future

these restaurants remain


hopeful that business will

rebound.


>> More police presence people

are more as a community


standing up for ourselves

making sure that we have like


the buddy system making sure

that we're together and we feel


safe that were walking together

that we have each other's back.


>> We need it. I was an

essential part of life I


one more fun is that look

forward to having dinner with


friends you haven't seen a new

place for favorite place.


>> But some old favorites just

can't be replaced. Why your


mind that during the pandemic

many restaurants have shut down


8 so far East is now the

biggest restaurant in Chinatown


the ball far East has to be

space big enough to host large


events for the community.


>> We were overjoyed having

that Mister trying to tell us a


event here. A press conference

and just being able to


reconnect with the community.

It warmed my heart and my dad


was like so overjoyed that

people are coming in just to


celebrate.


>> To learn more about the

future of Chinese American


restaurants. I went to visit

chef Lucas in in New York City


this savvy ship is on a mission

to save mom and pop shops from


closing


putting a spin on the classics.


>> Hey, yeah, I mean to you all

right can't wait to Yahoo.


>> Lucas was born and raised in

Hong Kong


growing up he had never heard

of dishes like general tso's


chicken what was your first

experience with Chinese


American yeah, and did you go.


>> What the heck is this.

I was here for summer camp and


on Tuesdays at 10 o'clock or so

right before bedtime this Van


would pull out in the front of

the school. And you can pick


between since we checked in

general, so she can orange


chicken with broccoli and fried

rice or what race or whatever


it was. The first thought was

that this is the security


situations where it's been my

whole life and the second


thought is that what in the

world of difference in orange


chicken Jones has taken and

says we take and why is there


so much that don't understand

about this if last time I


checked was trying to ease.


>> Lucas actually study

cognitive scientist Gayle,


but he always had a passion for

cooking. His summers spent


training award-winning

restaurants in Hong Kong and


Japan


after graduating in 2015 Lucas

opened his first restaurant


with Yale classmate John's out

June, the kitchen is a fast


casual chain that serves modern

Chinese fair, but Lucas


remained passionate about the

Chinese American cuisine he


first tasted visible.


>> So so how did Chinese

American food, the food that we


have become a familiar with how

did that develop that.


>> Now Chinese takeout is

interesting right because it's


all over the United States.

So these folks come in the


front is in a restaurant right

they learn those recipes and it


goes somewhere else right over

there actually and then their


cousins come from fees and then

those recipes are passed on and


there's a remarkable similarity

to to to these dishes.


>> Despite the popularity of

Chinese American food, many


family owned restaurants that

want got a Chinatown and other


urban areas have been closing

for years.


>> Open restaurants really

difficult and running


restaurants is perhaps even

more difficult these moms and


dads


over these Russians that their

kids can go to University and


become lawyers and doctors and

television host and whatnot and


now that they're finally able

to do that they don't need to


run these restaurants anymore.

Right the light suddenly


livelihoods have changed that's

a good thing.


>> Lucas and young hatched an

idea to help smaller businesses


in 2019 nice day seeks out

restaurants facing closure then


works with the owners to

remodel the space and update


the menus.


The pandemic stall the team's

initial plant, but the second


location in Long Island is

slated to open this spring.


>> It's important to me that

these new Chinese American


takeout restaurant so we're

building called nice day


work with the previous

generation of owners because


they have a lot of knowledge

that we don't they know their


customers you know what sells I

think how to cook these dishes


and recipes.


>> You raise an interesting

point that you talk to these


retired this Chinese restaurant

owners


is that part of the sense of

trying to


memorialize what could be lost.


>> Now preserving recipes as

part of it.


The other important parts

preserving the way business is


done to take a restaurants and

one of the few restaurants in


the world that if they're open

from 11 to 10 and the work


hours are 11 to 10 you don't

have any prep hours, the same


Cook cent


do the walks are fries are also

prepping during the day,


it's ridiculous the efficient

and it's got to do with the set


up and the waves because of the

run, but it's also important to


us that we give back this last

generation that we can make


sure that


owners want to retire retire,

well, and that that legacy can


be preserved a new type of

American trying to take a rest


>> While nice day pays homage

to popular Chinese American


room.


recipes Lucas has been

celebrated for his innovative


fusion dishes.


In 2021, he was named one of

food wine's best new ships.


>> We serve oppo Mac and cheese

air which is a variation on


that fish.


Fusion the kind of silly and

it's just an attempt to


something ridiculous it doesn't

make any sense if it rains


every chef sensibility that I

have but unfortunately is


delicious and it's interesting

and it gets people talking.


>> Finally it's time to eat

Locust showing me how to make


his signature dish.


>> How do we get sort so the

Michael Mac and cheese.


Here in the Mac and PC the

audience are vigorously


America. We have this Elmo

macaroni right top way and this


is be there. But the model is

going to be in the form of up


sauce if you will the last 2

elements that really sort of


take us over the edge is

Chinese sausage. It can


function like bacon and some

giant you're talking about


streams that we've rehydrated

cut a couple of things


and this for we will then put

into the fire. There's can


close the jumping portion of

our progress.


Garlic and ginger are cooked to

freight.

minute.


The launch of the tofu

>> You've never had that Jews

>> Amid a global pandemic

changing family dynamics and


anti Asian races Chinatowns

across America and the


communities that sustain them

face a challenging road ahead.


>> Every business that is open

right now is still fighting for


its life and I think that the

best way to fight the


anti-asian hate is to show our

love for the community come to


Chinatown or your local Asian

American Pacific Islander,


the restaurant store market

give them your business we have


lost so much during the

pandemic and I think it makes


us all so much more conscious

that we have to protect what we


love.


>> What's happened everybody

special edition of pop star

things to get to let's dive


right in the first one of the

nominees for best picture don't


look up this comedy explores

what happens is a highly


destructive comment. Approaches

Earth. Savannah Guthrie spoke


with stars Leonardo dicaprio

and Jennifer Lawrence and


director Adam McKay.


>> So how certain is this 100%

certainty of impact please


don't say a 100%. So we just

call it a potentially


significant event, yeah, yeah.


>> A massive fireball speeding

towards are promising to


obliterate the planet you guys

discovered a Commons comedy


isn't exactly what comes to

mind, but the newfound don't


look from oscar-winning writer

and director Adam McKay is


counting on laughter to focus.

De un says on a deadly serious


matter this is kind of the feel

good feel bad movie of the


year.


>> How did you pull that off.


>> Pretty good description that

we made this movie during


pandemic before there was even

a vaccines so I think we're on


the move to laugh because

things were so grim. But at the


same time we needed to feel

some other feelings as well.


>> But the moment of impact on

a diet up something and


practice on my diet.


>> Leonardo dicaprio and

Jennifer Lawrence lead a


star-studded cast as to

astronomers trying to sound the


alarm on the comments that will

soon wiped out the world,


a not so subtle allegory for a

real correct climate change


after seeing the movie.


>> Last night something kind of

resonated means how we process


bad news.


How it becomes a debate how

truth and facts can be


distorted or politicized.


Originally, you know metaphor

for the climate crisis and then


covid hit and then a whole new

wave of the denial of science


it was amazing to witness.

What was going on in real time


as we were making this movie

and we're sitting there trying


to explain Sciences Fauci was

doing the same thing it was it


was a bizarre experience,

you've said Leo, you feel like


it cracks the code.


>> You also said yesterday, I

think that you're a little bit


of a Debbie downer fish.

I mean it's hard not to feel a


little bit helpless.


>> If you do fall about climate

change to this is it it's


nearly impossible to get people

to get a sense of urgency


and pulled a mirror to our

culture and media and and and


politics and all these things

and


I just felt like this was an

incredible gift to be a part of


a movie that encapsulated

exactly what we're going


through at this particular

moment in time, but yeah,


I am a bit of a Debbie downer

because the clock is absolutely


>> How big is this thing going

to the store last White House


ticking.


is that possible.


>> Jennifer your role is the

first who gets to really just


say this is insanity that just

feel great.


>> Haha.


>> Yeah, I mean it was it's

just kind of unleashing that


helplessness that I feel as I'm

a citizen and a human on.


The plan. It was also so

poignant.


All of the ire. It kind of

landed squarely on on her


shoulders because she was

saying something that people


don't want to hear.


>> During filming before she

was pregnant Lawrence took her


approach of getting into

character to a new high.


>> Before the movie started

there was a lot more in the


script ktva ski was high pretty

much the whole the whole time


we thought if there was a scene

where I was talking it could be


funny to like actually just

like see that kind of just like


glassy.


>> Stare there was one scene

where she definitely was like


I'm I'm going to speak tonight,

I was like no, you're not she's


like I'm gonna try it because

it does fit the character and


the whole night I was so

tempted to go on the mic and


say hey let's supervisor model

and I realize how mean it would


be and I didn't not do a.

Yeah that respect for making us


yeah, it would have been.


>> Just oh my gosh sobering I

would. Yeah. Yes, sobering and


she was next to Meryl Streep I

was next to Meryl Street.


What was it like to be with

Meryl Streep because I know


she's an idol of everyone's.


>> Her improvisation was

incredible to you know shooting


this during covid and having

the mind of Adam McKay sort of


speak through a loudspeaker and

we were the sort of nerdy


scientist just trying to react

to this onslaught of different


directions that the scenes

would go at any given time


because he really created an

atmosphere where anything goes


not a lot of rehearsal just get

into the room and go out and of


course Merrill was incredible

incredible to work with.


There will be magnitude.


>> 10 or 11 earthquakes, your

reading we're in it to make me.


Sorry, I'm just trying to

articulate the science I know,


but you think so.


>> I don't he'll add lived a

lot of those lines. Yeah.


>> There is one day that was

just solely dedicated to him,


insulting me. I'm sorry who is

she and her son chief of staff


boy with the dragon tattoo so

I'm doing fine and that was


tough but it was one of the

greatest days of my life.


I heard you in helter nose ring

a few yeah, I said was a Magna


and poor Leo had to witness a

couple times.


>> We need making eye contact

with you well I got it. It did


happen a couple in them


and I never understood what the

Hell's going on.


>> We have the premier, how did

the ending go over I'm not


giving anything away.


>> It will kill me, I think it

was incredibly emotional and


you know I had this movie had a

different ending it wouldn't be


the story that it is and we're

not going to give that away but


he needed to have this.


The Senate needed that it's a

wake-up call so long Clark


and not a Hollywood ending no,

it's not that didn't have that


ending


was no way we're going to be a

part of it.


>> It's remarkable that so much

for such a serious topic it's


defined what all right coming

it's awesome that you hear on

the Plaza, I just want to bask


in your or I agree, I mean

everything you touch is gold


whether you're directing and

producing it in its. I mean


you take it all in especially

when this movie is loosely


based on your life and and

people are obsessed with it.


>> Well thank you the its its a

bit of a welding, it's very


beautiful moment to to have

because it is based on a lot of


expenses I had is that getting

to falling in love with babies


the 9 to this country. So what

you end up being you look at


the film and you see a kid

watching babies from Hollywood


you end up. He have you know

heading towards the Academy


Awards with 7 nominations for 7

days, a bunch, what basic bunch


of people, it's it's it's

surreal but the thing that is


really beautiful is it seems

that to people in the Hawks.


>> It's written from the heart

and that's something that it


really has resonated with

people and obviously as you


mentioned the Oscar

nominations. They're being


rewarded that way 7 Oscar

nominations and you say it


setting a record for the most

number of Oscar nominations,


7 for mail for the different

categories.


>> So what did you know that

you were you are in contention


for the photo you've got to

enjoy it for any of that kind


of thinking about way by the

slice. It is that it's a it's a


must that's amazing absolutely

amazing to me that it. It


reminds me of the great a

privilege you have the biggest


story tell it from different

parts of the kind of created a


place where the act obviously,

but in this like it's a direct


view the full kid in place the

9 year-old the son of me if you


like that he's an amazing not

too young to deal and then

the scale.

with all solvable the

nomination which for me was


that proof of the pudding the

kind of connective think


between the weird side effect

of covid was the best family


that on screen family became

very bonded need that cost


bubble. He did leave I had no

choice but to get on it,


I'm Pat's a uniform

relationships sooner and


quicker and more meaningfully

old you is always it should

this I think that that feeling

with what a lot of families

doing incredibly well and now


you're at the center of the

Hollywood you're going to be


walking the red carpet at the

Oscars are Oscar nominee to


come right out of the box like

this. What is that experience


been like for you.


>> I really hope I don't trip.

What I'm hoping that I don't I


mean it's been incredible and

we're making the movie we


didn't think about anything

like that we were just trying


to make something that we loved

and every day we showed up to


that so happy I didn't want to

leave and it was such an


incredible experience, I'm just

Ike I still can't even believe


I'm sitting here talking to you

guys talking about Lakers


pizza. I mean it's wiles.


>> Okay last so what about when

you were young and you are in


the family band, which is kind

of my dream for my little


children to create some sort of

family then you show it rocking


high. Yes, so when you split

first of all for your pals my


God. While the sisters with

either. Haha and this band with


your parents, yeah, I wish we

had like a group fighting.


Oh my God.


But when you decided like OK,

we're going to actually go out


and be huge rock stars on our

Mike I can imagine that


conversation sitting at the

kitchen table with a lot like


>> His sibling citing 3 chairs

might be set up 2 chairs my


this.


no, I mean I think that with

rock and I mean I was so you


hand


have your only playing covers

it started as 4 years old we


would only play like Delhi, u n

n they like country fairs and


street fairs like it was

nothing it was not the big.


A lot of Billy Joel a lot of

you know Rolling Stones it was


it was cool cool. We're

terrible haha well.


But yeah in 2007 me and my

siblings decided like maybe we


should play music together

because we've been playing for


so long and.


>> That famous deli circuit and

the value. Civil suit that was


like worth it.


>> The cool sea on acting just

saying all right. We've got


some great stuff coming up the

power of the dog has count 12


nominations that is the most of

any film this year we spoke to


the film's production designer

about just how they were able


to create that cool nights and

27.


pop star plus Oscars preview


r


not seen the Western the power

of the dog will recognize the


air in Montana landscape we

learn from the greats.


And major that's the film's

Oscar nominated production


designer, about all those

behind the scenes work that was


needed to create the look and

feel of exactly what you see on


screen.


>> He's a production design.

My responsibilities, screen at


the some of the time and the

place with within which the


drama takes place on the power

of the dog.


A story stock sunlight to 25

and the state of Montana I


didn't have to sort of


week highs and Ty law isn't

going to do to boost up.


The American story tell how

that all is based on a book by


Thomas Edison from the 1960's

and goals a family of 2


brothers who run a cattle

ranch, we showed you 0 so it


was incumbent on us to be able

to find a location that would


play for one time. I'm hoping

that the New Zealand, this all


up sort of diminishes somewhat

because this really is the


story said a long time around

and we should believe it to be


some time, the belt is

something odd about it was very


much a place that time forgot

and many was you know, because


it's quite a long time between

200 years ago for once and


would before place that didn't

have a lot of them.


Farm buildings and the

agricultural accouterments


so we're very lucky to be able

to fund this place that was


some. There is some payback was

already a cattle ranch, but


also had a little the process

that we were looking for but


you have to spend a little time

trying to not back to green us


on the grass and make it feel

will air it to give it up just


to reduce the kind of tell us

quite a lot because it was very


green moment, we're also able

to use the cattle that was on


the ranch and there's very

little else that we build


everything we built the House

we will catch you. And the


Cowboys quarters. Police what's

the all the elements of the


scripts I was witness to be

able to start with the 2


candidates and building think

the ground up.


>> Jane Campion and I've come

across each of the 50 years


that they all Syrian pretty

spot here.


This little style and

professionalism and we did a


lot of which shopping. You know

why to be able to talk about


that it pushes way of going

about making something real not


because we saw with the U.S.

lost in the script.


We didn't need to build the

House as a 3.60 degree


building. So you know we didn't

shoot all the way around the


building and we need to shoot

inside the location from goals


and saw the windows. So they'll

be here is that the kitchen and


around the water cooler Cowboys

dining area so they will have a


direct relationship to the

location that we could see up


to the windows framed that

primes was something that we


try to bring in the is this is

something about looking out to


the little innocent looking

into that when the Senate


because of a shuttle coming up

I speak to that was kind of a


nice so something like.


>> That's the most challenging

was it wasn't just the 6 that


we were doing we were doing the

whole bar much so a lot of the


with the 2 subsequent building

was old age prices which were


just endless amounts of time

washes and takes 2 watches and


period back and put it in the

election and the losses unless


a stop to the outside of the 6.

The same goes for the inside


says it will go to the stage is

open to a lot of work into the


Petit knows all too well, the

rules and just to give them a


female,


all of life and during

Michigan's to live there in


Caulfield to everything that we

may have to return says group


of Senate office and of course

the city correct is that the


crew would just like so

enthusiastic about the spill


was what his status will ever

come to getting hundreds of


this. This thing was like was

the pitch proportion scripts to


continue to make it I am so

proud to be caught all the


have a little fun moment, one

that the gotten so many


nominations.


>> So we should learn about all

these processes that are


happening behind the scenes to

create those cool visuals we've


got a lot more behind the

scenes inside to share with you


sci-fi fan favorite tunes up

for 10 Oscars, one is for the


category of cinematography

thanks to a nominee. Greg


Frazier here's what he hopes to

convey through the lens of his


camera.


>> My greatest goes the tougher

generally is to not have people


I know that I had a job on the

film. So it's a bit of a tricky


one because of course

everything that you see on


screen is lens through my

camera in my teens camera June


he said minis in the future.

It is a time when humans have


has evolved to the point where

they're able to do away we've


with computers infected.

So this is my first film with


the name of the major thing

that I took away from my first


meeting today was his passion

for the 2 spoke with a teenager


and stayed with him all those

years while she's been learning


is Kroft of filmmaking and the

way I approached it with


affected by seeing the world

through the names on it.


>> I very much wanted to up to

my eyes, the emotional a


quality and a lot of the week

we shop since becoming a


cinematographer before that I

was at the top offense in


effectively. I've been studying

lot now 20 plus he is very much


trying to and mostly tended to

what life does for us as


humans. So it was trying to run

that kind of that line all of


subtlety yet. The fact that the

like really ease a cat that is


you need to make sure that when

you're inside the household


that you are aware the fact

that you should not be outside


like that was a voice of a

difficult tricky place to big


Sur. I want to make sure that

that building it's felt that


that over time will they have

the the underlying feeling that


it wasn't always a full, but

the sort of allowed the


backbone of the candidates to

understand where they were


we always made sure that we

were primarily by Sam sessions


on kerik that regardless of

what the U.S. decisions ended


up being and artist monitoring.

But we want to try and make


these Terrapins reliable.

Video games and part of that I


think is the way that we can

have the you know we want to


make sure that as the camera

way we're close to them but we


know so close within the next

phase, one upset about back


they would not tell me that my

mobility since because again


lenses I think have an

emotional bed to the lens is


too long, but it's too wide we

start to feel something


different and who didn't and I

would. But the quiet adamant


about making sure that that

lens it's a set within that


space but what they want to too

aggressive and being being too


>> We played along with sky on

this show, you know the the


sanctions that would you know

running up the running down its


engines for example in in the

county that you ordinarily see


you and good luck with the

agency it stand out. That's 17


stories high and so we want to

make sure that the the 40 and


soul felt the scale of those

things and that's where I found


it exciting physically putting

putting up because it's in the


middle of a sentence like said

why didn't the ready just to to


consume them we just the camper

I think by playoff going NL


yeah that that that that is a

pretty fast weight due to close


lead your team to a belief that

the continent's the world is a


little less rigid, but also

what that did is 11 us from one


to 2 shots that were very

controlled very very focused


and very steady. You know what

I do how it comes across in


this film.


So the rest of plea is the

relationship with the cat is


the kind of his relationship

with make sure you know that


we've managed to capture.

The Heat have just as they were


intended to to be be be seen by

the recent by Frank and then a


director that bills to black to

white that I've done justice


directives and make them feel

like to performances debating


every public action recorded

it, you know winning an Oscar


is is right.


We felt it so happens to me I

think the biggest thing is the


is the recognition all out


individual work on and on and

on the left


bright be film what your hands.


>> Now the shots and dinner

just.


Coming up next. We're exploring

the makeup and costumes


featured at this year's Oscars

with 2 acclaimed designers stay


with us.


are going to dive right into

some costumes now there are


some of the good ones and films

that were Paul Tazewell as the


brains behind the costumes that

scene in the new film version


of West Side Story is nominated

for an Oscar for his work and


spoke to him about what it was

like working with the legendary


Steven Spielberg on his re

imagining of the classes.


>> With that I approach my

work, it's telling the story


and being in support of the

story from the standpoint of


clothing and how all the

characters might choose their


clothing for specific scene or

moment. I see my work as a very


powerful part of the creative

process for the director for


the actors and then how a place

for the presentation overall


and how the audience and gauges

with that when I was asked by


Stephen to design with side

story I was very aware that was


a story that the original

Broadway production wow was


done in 1957. So it was

important for us even to


recreate the world in 1957 in

New York City that everything


time the way that I created a

big contrast of the Caucasian


community, you know as as it

relates to the Jets and then


the shore community as it

relates to the latinx next to


you for the Jets, the film

opens where they are in there.


Essentially in their playground

so with with the the Jets I


worked to keep them in pools I

do know a lot of Blues and


greens and grays and some of

that was influenced by my use


of data I think you got Jean

Zahn and a look at how American


jeans I have become actually in

our in our you know my whole


church versus the the Puerto

Rican community or that the


charts where they are you know,

they're they're more for warmth


and want to miss that you know

kind of dip into where where


they come from the tropical

colors that they've come from I


knew that that purple dress

that we were able for the and


also if you're a bear in the I

want to show you know it was it


was going to be important too


find I look I look for you to

play for and those that would


feel as iconic as that dressed

could be so big as I was


choosing cars, you know if

you're headed to the color


surrounding her. And she's

saying you know patterns that


would surround was well because

a lot of fuel and so use within


that it's well again to be

reflective of


the the you know that the

tropical Island that they come


from the 30 didn't see any of

that.


>> One of the original things

of that Steven Spielberg ask


you to do anything he was asked

to design the show was that he


wanted it for the right price

for Maria to stay part of the


design I love that idea because

you know I it speaks to her


innocence. It also speaks too

culturally to where she's


coming from her connection to

the Catholic Church and the


potential you know just a

feeling oppressed fight back,


you know that kind of pressure.

It where she is as a young


woman we're trying to evolve

and grow and expand and and


really be you know and embrace

this new space that isn't part


of the white dress and that

ball for Maria is the rent you


know, and you know it's

Stephen, you know we again was


very smart in having. I need it

takes about also for our office


for out to achieve plan for the

dance the gym and handing it


over to react really as a you

know, if it's a metaphor for


her ushering her into womanhood

and that that kind of positive


energy that you know that kind

of sister.


They did a great race issues in

America and it's a it's it's


our most American.


>> Social battle.


So I think that you know with

what you know has inspired all


of us have experienced in the

last 2 years. I'm definitely it


it speaks to that and


it's nice to get just a

question of what does it take


to come together having a

musical that canned he filled


with joy and


I you know positive energy and

excitement and you know it is


holds go, you know what side

story has. These huge numbers,


beautiful music and you know,

so I think that it is you need


something that we can embrace,

and feel good about and I think


that was a story provides a.


>> You can just see the

richness and all the attention


to detail when you watch that

always so full hearing from


people like all right now,

let's turn to another story


being told at this year's

Oscars in the film, the eyes of


Tammy Faye Jessica Chastain

plays event local talk show


host Tammy Faye now, Linda

doubts is nominated for her


makeup design, the film and she

says she worked really hard to


portray Tammy Faye as

authentically as possible


through the makeup that Tammy

Faye actually warming ocean


where a lot.


>> As a makeup designer I think

that our key responsibility is


to support the performance by

an actor and then I think


there's an additional

responsibility when you are


looking to create a real-life

character and that involves a


lot of research and trying to

be as authentic as possible to


the parents of that person

which was the case of Tammy


Faye


Tammy Faye and her husband Jim

Bakker where we liked held


Angeles


and they had a very large fall

from grace and Mina undergoing


the most vicious attack.


>> Serving God, don't feel like

it to be a money-making


opportunity.


>> And through my research I

listening to the old ptl


recordings and Tammy herself

and all other issues and what I


discovered was that I really

believe that a misconception of


who she was I found her to be

incredibly empathetic actually


really beautiful human being

she exuded I think the real


tense of being a good person

she taught tolerance and except


dance and being authentic to

yourself and being the best


person that you can be and that

authenticity became super


important and we wanted to

convey that.


>> Some of the steps that we

went through to portray I'm


Tammy Faye is authentically as

we could it was such a team


effort we had just Raleigh and

his team from brexit effects


who did this text. I'm

Stephanie Ingram, good hair


Mitchell Travers did costume

and then myself doing it the


side of things one could not

move forward properly without


the others so I think that was

a really key elements and then


Tammy Faye told us a lot about

herself in her interviews and


you just have to look at her

she was very well put together


everything matching coordinated

she loved shopping and drug


stores and target she looked

paints and we have sort of 3


major stages so it was a very

young stage of Tammy Faye where


she was at Bible College


and she created a little bit of

ruffle them because she didn't


wear a little bit of makeup.

I think that's where we first


saw her her love of that and

then we have a period where


sort of that middle ground

where we see her on the


Christian broadcast network, we

see our ptl and there's a lot


of color and everything was

that true matching matching we


saw the brighter colors we saw

violets and blues and pinks


and and as she grew older and

as she had sort of that last


face we saw I think the tones

all changed everything got a


little deeper, they got into

plums and purples and deeper


tomes and their wakes got

darker your costumes that


darker she was into more rents

in blocks and then of course


there's the aging process which

was reflected in the study


pieces so I think those tree

stages we kind of defined


stages very specifically which

also helped us through the


transition of you know almost

will you know basically 3 and a


half decades of what Tammy Faye

look like.


>> To remover on all over

that's it.


Beyond there permanently line.

My eyes are permanently lined


in my browser permanently has

with that. There's not a whole


lot you can do.


My goodness I didn't know that


have you never done pictures

without those I don't know snow


and I never will because that's

my trademark and you know if I


take that away then it's not me

and know what's going to look


at me without my trademark so

hold on to that.


>> Doing something like this it

does involve a lot of research


and she often talked about some

of the brand's she used for


example she use l'oreal lash

out that was her choice of Miss


Kara and she used a lot of

drugstore brands and a lot of


those callers funny enough,

particularly those little quads


that you see that l'oreal and

Revlon unable to you know put


out those colors have pretty

much maintained a lot of the


same sort of tones so I bought

those sold only help show the


true look at what it was.

So I think the research is


super important.


So just tonight we have worked

together for quite a number of


years now well currently

working on our 16th project


together which is that. I mean

the series about George Jones


and Tammy Wynette and I think

the lovely thing for us is I


mean just an amazing

collaborator so for me I find


it really great that she is

really supportive of the whole


process recognizes that there

are all of these elements that


we need to pull together and

how she's a really great active


participant. In the choice

making of developing the


character. It is a joy to work

with somebody who is engaged in


what we do. And has a love what

we do you know that I feel


because I love my job and so.


>> To be honored in this way I

actually can't quite the league


that however it all falls, this

is brilliant and I I'm really


happy with every element of it

as it stands right now.


>> The research and planning

that goes into each of these


films is


absolutely remarkable funded

tied behind the scenes here


we've got a lot more to come up

for you still we're going to


bring you all the potential

history making moments to look


for at this year's Oscars.


winners at this year's ceremony

could make history a lot of


different fronts. Here's Turner

Classic movies, host Dave


Karger breaking down what you

might expect.


>> The Oscars have already made

a lot of history this year with


the nominations that came out

they can make even more history


with the winners at the end of

the month, here's half.


>> First up in the acting

categories is something really


fun for the first time ever

there are 2 couples nominated


in all 4 of the acting

categories so in lead actor and


actress Javier Bardem for being

the ricardos and Penelope Cruz


from parallel mothers are

nominated in the supporting


categories. Jesse plemons and

Kirsten dunst were costars as


well in the power of the dog,

they were both nominated


married couples have been

nominated before the Oscars,


but never in all 4 acting

categories that's kind of cool.


>> Also in the best actress

category if Kristen Stewart


wins best actress for her

performance as Princess Diana


in Spencer,


she would be the first person

ever to win a lead actor Oscar


without being nominated.

For the sag awards where the


British Academy or bafta

awards. This is majorly


significant because there's a

lot of overlap between the


voting body of the Oscars and

the voting body of the sag and


bafta awards so it's very rare

for someone to win an Oscar


without also at least getting

nominated it has happened a


couple times in the supporting

actress category Marcia Harden


one without a sag and bafta

nomination Regina King won


without a site about Saddam

nation but it's never happened


in the history of the sag

awards which is 27 years that


someone has won a lead acting

Oscar without a sad or bafta


nomination.


In the best supporting actor

category, Troy kotsur from


Florida has become the first

deaf man ever to be nominated


for an Oscar his costar in the

movie Marley matlin was the


first death actress to be

nominated in the 1980's for


children of a lesser God and

she won. That's actress,


let's see if Troy kotsur can

also win an Oscar for his first


nomination.


There's also some history that

could be made in the best


supporting actress category if

Arianna to bows wins for her


performance as Anita in West

Side Story first of all she


would be the first openly women

of color ever to win an Oscar


so that will be a very exciting

moment. If she does when she


will also make it the 3rd time

that 2 actors have won Oscars


for playing the same role in 2

different movies.


>> So Marlon Brando and Robert

De Niro both won Oscars for


playing you for unity in 2

different godfather films,


and of course the ledger and

Joaquin Phoenix both won Oscars


for playing the Joker in 2

different goals. So if you are


a 100 of those winds will be

the same role that Rita Moreno


won her Oscar for 60 years ago

that would be great.


There's some more history that

could be made in the best actor


category will Smith is already

the 9th person and the second


black man to be nominated for

acting and producing the same


film King Richard if he wins

the best actor Oscar which I


think he's going to he would be

the 5th.


>> Black actor ever to win the

best actor Oscar after sitting


watching Denzel Washington.

Jamie Foxx and forest.


There's also a full statistic

in the best picture race


involving Cate Blanchett with

course is one of the most


acclaimed actors or actresses

working today with the best


picture nominations for don't

look up and nightmare alley


Cate Blanchett now surpasses

Olivia de Havilland rate


classic actress with films like

gone With the wind as the


performer who has appeared in

the most best picture nominees


of all time so it just goes to

show that whenever Cate


Blanchett makes it known

whether she's actually


nominated herself or not the

film always benefits from her


participation.


There's something really

exciting going on in the best


director category this year

first of all Steven Spielberg


with his nomination for West

Side Story becomes the first


person ever to be nominated for

best director in 6 consecutive


decades, so he got his first

director nomination for close


encounters of the 3rd kind back

in the 70's.


Wilbur wins the Oscar for West

Side Story he will become the


oldest best director winner of

all time at age 75 currently


that record is held by Clint

Eastwood one when he was 17.


This year's also a great year

for films written and directed


by women particularly in the

best adapted screenplay


category that screen plays that

are based on previously


published work performed

material like remake of a film


adaptation of a book and this

year for the first time in 30


years 3 of the 5 scripts that

are nominated for best adapted


screenplay written by within

code that national tater we


lost our by Maggie gyllenhaal

and the power of the dog by


Jane Campion


and I think you can get.


There's another thing to look

out for in this year's best


picture race I think for the

first time we could very well


see a best picture winner by a

streaming service at opposed to


a typical Hollywood studio.

I think the power of the dog


stands a really good chance to

win and that's a netflix movie


know streaming movie has ever

won. Best picture yet couple of


come close I think, but if

Howard the dog wins this will


be the first time that has ever

happened.


>> I know, I'll be tuning into

the Oscars on March 27 to see


all the history that's going to

be made.


Well what you have to wait and

see what happens now to close


out our preview coming up next

our interviews with the cold


Kidman and Javier Bardem and

Kristen Stewart.


preview Nicole Kidman and

Javier Bardem transport and


Lucy and Ricky Ricardo for the

film being the ricardos both


are nominated for their own.


And now John sat down with the

duo to learn exactly how they


prepared to play the TV icons.


>> I Love Lucy define the TV

sitcom in the 1950's still


iconic scenes like vitamin E

that Benjamin.


>> And then again.


>> And of course stopping

grapes in Italy.


Which was created in the new

film being the ricardos.


>> We only did it takes about

not yet.


>> Really yeah I was like I

spent 2 months prepare. Site is


Goldman.


>> Written and directed by

Aaron Sorkin being the


Ricardo's focuses on the behind

the scenes drama as Lucy and


desi's turbulent marriage and a

crisis that threatens to end


their careers and not telling

these people that I checked the


wrong box.


>> There were 181 episodes of I

Love Lucy did you watch all of


them, some of them what's all

in one night.


And to your family, your

friends, your face same really


maybe this is it.


>> They're all was really

haven't seen every in every


show there's always someone

else.


>> Really is brilliant that's

daunting to live up to when


news broke of Nicole Kidman's

casting not everyone thought


she was right for the role.

There are critics who say that


look like her can she do this

you like that give you any


space in your head or


>> try not to that human

beings. So this times and guy


caution public, maybe I'm not

the right person for this,


but that's where having

somebody like Aaron who really


said at the beginning the psych


Juan Tang a perfect rendition

are imitation of Lucy.


No no no no not.


>> Kidman actually felt a

special connection to Lucille


ball. A lot of us.


>> I can relate to and I got

okay, I've been in that


situation, I know that so what

you've been as the scene in it


where they say you're 39 and

that's it.


And it's kind of a that for you

I I know that feel


I sort of have that and I was

like OK where television


suddenly opened the door for

her and opened the door for


many around the same age I was

like cash. That's kind of I I


know that feeling really great

place.


>> Javier Bardem plays Desi

Arnaz the famous cuban-american


bandleader who is.


>> And those skills have been a

bit hard to replicate.


>> We played the Congress so

hard your hand lead at one


point is that yeah of course

you know that when you would be


hard to believe that you're

gonna come the players are you


I'm not I'm not. You want to

make it sound at all you know


they put in play backs. And you

say low to motor motor and then


you'll hear what you're doing

and then you go like crazy.


The cut is like what's going on

is the first active and you in


person right there I read that

you pursue this for for years,


what was it about this role.

And it's tough to watch the


episodes and they fell nearly

drove him to go like you said


he's killed this time he's

human in New York his way of


taking the place only in that

place in a moment where he was


so difficult to be a foreigner

in this country.


>> Kidman and barred him

capture the deep and


complicated love between Lucy

and Desi possibly drawing from


their own high-profile

marriages to Keith urban and


Penelope Cruz.


>> I think or both fortunate in

the sense of we have pot those


that understand the artistic

process and say I want you to


have that which I love.


>> It's a good to belong to us

that's a great start in such a


great movie. So what happens is

like.


>> Great to just get a snapshot

into the lives of Lucy and Desi


right now last but not least

Kristen Stewart we caught up


with her to chat about her

rules Prince stay on in the


film Spencer one that landed

her a nomination. For best


actress.


>> We've got an incredible

standing ovation when to sell


Spencer debut. And you really

embody Princess Diana which I


can't even imagine how

intimidating that is to take on


someone who is so well known

and how did you did you watch


the crown that was part of the

research.


>> Yeah I think I watched in

like 3 days. Yeah, it's nice to


have that and going through all

the memoirs and


research in documentaries that

actually are not remotely dry.


It's just nice to have like a

dramatized version of the story


to it.


It was very quick bet for me I

just couldn't stop going to the


next episode. How did you go

about like kneeling the accent,


the mannerisms all of the

things that were Princess


Diana.


She is not difficult to absorb

how to be honest and I wish


that there was a it's sort of

key to this magic trick.


I have my only answer is that I

I


took her into my physicality in

need of emotional spiritual way


I'm such a huge enormous at

Myer of her and it's hard to


not be impacted by that energy.

I just


also luckily had a good for 5

months store, but the beautiful


coach an a


yeah, I trust process, you know

it became really physical and


muscular and then once I got

there is really important to


focus on her spontaneity and

her life and every picture I've


seen of her every. But footage

I've seen of her she is exuding


life and just like kind of

exploding alive, so I couldn't


make everything perfect and

precise, you know I still


needed to kind of live and

breathe and feel and really


when she walked in the room.

It felt like you didn't know


what's going to happen and I

could see projections sort of


maybe our memories I've heard

and then knowing what happens


there's something about looking

back, you know, hindsight is


2020 every time I look at like

so you get a little bit worried


when I'm feeling really

captures that because there is


a certain unpredictability

about her and it's and actually


it's really interesting

construct because this isn't


supposed to be history. Yes

that scene really happened.


There's it's something poetic

you take 3 days and imagine


what those 3 days at Christmas

toward the end of their


relationship with that might

have been like is that what


kind of drew you to it this

idea of artistic license based


in someone we all know or feel

like we know.


Yeah, I think that's what

cinema gives us is a sort of


opportunity to dream and not

necessarily just regurgitate


facts


movies do the coolest thing

they take internal feelings and


external has them and there's a

saying that this conversation


is like literal and were

present were talking to there


now, but there are it there our

inner lives of people have that


are in communicable and so


I think all of the


things that we know are true


as a as a cultural


entity has an audience we bring

all of those facts to the movie


you don't have to state them.

I think by the end of the movie


we do we end on this sort of

lighter note because


she ultimately did find her

liberation and she broke free


and became embodied and

articulate and the press unlike


organized interviews was like

I'm going to speak for myself


and have my boys and and

protect what really matters to


me and then at the end of the

movie what rushes in is the


tragedy of what happened and

you go. Oh man,


you got to hold her whole life

and these 3 days without having


to sort of hit the nail on the

head and just feel so


emotional.


>> What's amazing how who's

going to transport you right


into somebody else's life.

All right everybody that was


our big Oscars preview. What's

next hold your thoughts there


was a good pop star plus comes

>> We'll start with nbc's

Kristen Welker she's in Warsaw


where the president will be

later today, Kristen good


>> Savannah and hoda good

morning to both of you


morning.


president Biden is heading here

to Poland, this morning where


he's expected to put a focus on

the growing refugee crisis but


before he left Brussels, he

announced that the U.S. will


provide Europe with more

natural gas to help decrease


its dependency on Russia, it

comes as he wraps up a high


stakes summit all aimed at

getting flatter your proof to


back down.


This morning, president Biden

wrapping up marathon talks in


Brussels before heading this

can lead to deliver a critical


show of support to a key NATO

ally.


As Russia's war in Ukraine

rages on Poland is now the


epicenter of the humanitarian

crisis sparked by Russia's


invasion taking in more than

2 million refugees from Ukraine


in the last months concluding a

day of emergency meetings with


NATO and other allies the

president announced the U.S.


will commit more than a billion

dollars in humanitarian aid.


>> And take in Ukrainian

refugees, welcome 100,000


Ukrainians United States with a

focus.


>> Henri 19 families after

warning Vladimir putin may use


chemical and biological weapons

in Ukraine the president vowed


the U.S. will take action if

putin launches a chemical


>> Nature, the response to

depend on the nature of use.


attack.


>> But when pressed the

president did not say whether


that would trigger a military

response from NATO.


>> Would trigger a response in

kind whether or not you're


asking whether NATO would cross

where we make that decision at


>> Mister Biden and NATO also

unveiled new sanctions on


the time.


Russian lawmakers as the

president said he'll push for


Russia to be kicked out of the

G 20 representing the world's


largest economies. I answer is

yes, it depends on the G 20.


Still the president pushed back

when asked about us sanctions


against Russia.


Whether they failed to deter

people from going to war


something the Biden

administration initially said


was the goal, the president's

message now.


>> Sanctions never deter you

keep talking about that the


maintenance of sanctions,

increasing the pain that's what


will stop it.


>> And when asked if he was too

quick to take military action


off the table and whether that

involed including no one now.


>> So Kristen we talked about

the president going to Poland


today, obviously this is where

he will see that refugee crisis


firsthand.


>> That's absolutely right

Savannah and the stakes could


not be higher the president's

agenda will center on the


humanitarian crisis that is

unfolding here in Poland.


That we've all been witnessing,

he's going to kick that off by


attending an event aimed at

providing support for the


increasing number of refugees

here. He's also expected to


meet with American troops

center to bolster nato's forces


along the border and on his

final day tomorrow Mister Biden


will hold critical talks with

Poland's president all capping


off a really important trip the

president hopes hopes will


forced to take pause and scale

back his impressions of it.


>> Christian Walker thank you

very much. Let's get right to


the situation inside war torn

Ukraine where Russia is


stepping up attacks on even

more civilian targets, nbc's


chief foreign correspondent

Richard Engel is in key for us


once again. Hi Richard good

morning.


>> Good morning. Hoda many

developments overnight. Let's


start with the city of mariupol

the southern city is surrounded


by Russian forces it has been

bombed relentlessly nearly 2


weeks ago, Russia bombed a

theater in mariupol that was


sheltering hundreds of

civilians. This morning you


could local Ukrainian officials

claimed that that strike killed


several 100 Ukrainians in the

theater around 300 we can't


confirm that figure. But it

would be the single worst


atrocity since this war began

as Russia is continuing its


bombing campaign nationwide.


>> Overnight Russia continued

its bombing campaign striking a


fuel Depot outside kyiv trying

to cut supplies to the Capitol


and topple the government in

the long war of attrition.


In Har keeve to the east Russia

bomb more apartment building.


In the city relatives held a

funeral for Boris romantschenko


a 96 year-old Ukrainian June he

survive not see concentration


camps only to be killed by a

Russian bomb that hit his home


did you go the more his son

said his memory would not be


forgotten even though many of

the families papers and


photographs were destroyed.

Across keep the war restarting


to drag on many been living

down in the subway stations for


a month now, but it's Russia's

justification for the war that


bothers the tell you which is

why she says she has friends in


Russia who believe the Russian

propaganda that Russia is


fighting to topple Ukraine's

supposedly fascist and neo-nazi


government official of the

comments I've been sheltering


with my child in the Metro for

a month and they do not believe


me they say it's your fault,

you are to blame and it's you


you you she said only if the

nonstop reports, Russian state


TV described Russian troops as

liberators in Ukraine insisting


they never target civilians.

These are the first images from


inside the theater in Mario

pull Russia attacked 9 days ago


where hundreds of Ukrainian

civilians were sheltering.


Covered in dust, they seem

days. Many are women children


and the elderly.


A narrator on the video says

the missile hit the center of


the theater and people are

evacuating the site Mario pull


city officials citing witnesses

claimed 300 people were killed


in the attack. NBC News cannot

verify that claim.


The theater is in the center of

my real ID been clearly marked


with signs in Russia saying

children to indicate children


were inside Russia denied it

carried out the attack.


Ukraine is holding back the

Russian assault for now,


but it faces an army times its

size which president zelinsky


called on European leaders to

stand with Ukraine and on


people around the world to take

to the streets in solidarity


with his nation that he not

what he's done.


>> Here in Kiev this morning.

The air raid sirens have been


going off once again as Russia

is intensifying its attacks on


the city's northern suburbs.

All right Richard Engel for us


there in Kiev Richard thank

you.


>> For a lot of people heading

back to the office for the


first time in 2 years picking

up lunch is part of the daily


routine that's happening again,

yeah, it feels like that salad


or sandwich got more expensive

while you've been away.


>> It did. Yeah, this is

business and Tech correspondent


Jo Ling, Kent joins us with a

bit of an explanation, hey Joe


good morning.


>> Hey guys good morning.

Lynn flation has become an


expensive reality for people

going back to the office the


prices of CE salads sandwiches

and wraps even tacos going up


nationwide by a lot and it's

adding up 2 serious double


whammy on your wallet as you're

already spending more and more


for that gas to get back to the

office


with millions heading back into

the office again workers are


forking over more for lunch,

popular lunch spots like


sweetgreen saying they're

raising their prices in what's


being called lunch flation when

you see prices going up for


lunch, what runs through your

head this spending like $15 for


Saudi can they go home the

price you pay at restaurants.


Overall is up nearly 7% in the

last year alone the biggest


jump since 1981. According to

the tech company square the


price of a wrap it up 18% since

last year a sandwich rising 14%


salad soaring 11% and burgers

spiking 8% nationwide even Taco


prices have risen 12% these

hikes are due to labor


shortages in the skyrocketing

cost of ingredients.


>> It's kind of hard because

I'm on a budget I don't have a


lot like a ton of money to

expend stuff.


>> And for consumers who think

bringing lunch will solve this


problem. Well, you're in for a

surprise groceries cost 8.6%


more than a year ago, including

record-breaking prices for


lunch, meat shoppers sounding

off on social media saying


maybe I just wasn't used to

buying a lot of groceries but


this was a $100 are you making

any edge other adjustments in


your life so you can still grab

a Taco and got lunch.


Yeah, generally just buying

less of starting a lot more


toast which sounds really sad

all my friends make fun of me


because you tell us for lunch

or toast for dinner, some


employers are trying to soften

the blow by subsidizing lunches


while some restaurants are

offering special lunch deals to


safe where you can experts say

it's still cheaper to bring


your own lunch and opt for

generic brands, avoid expensive


add-ons you savings apps and

coupon sites and track your


spending to find other places

to safe. So your desk lunch


doesn't eat too much into your

budget.


Now adding to the sticker shock

wages are lagging behind this


rapid inflation, making that

lunch, you're buying it work


even more expensive but the

good news is you could see


prices come down in the next 6

to 12 months, the Federal


Reserve of course planning to

continue raising those interest


rates as it tries to get this

high inflation under control


>> All right Jo Ling Kent force

thank you Joe.

series in honor of women's

History month we had the


celebration of powerful women

through inspiring conversations


with their granddaughters this

morning, nbc's blayne Alexander


is introducing us to a 16

year-old keeping her


grandmother's so alive through

music a blank good morning.


>> Guys good morning to you it

was such a joy to catch up with


grace, Franklin and especially

to do so in Detroit where so


much of this history began.

You know, we learned a lot of


things about the Queen of soul

that you probably don't know.


And we also learned that the

genes are very strong in that


family.


>> She is the undisputed Queen

of soul.


But a 16 year-old grace

Franklin.


>> What did you call her I just

called her Grandma, he called a


Grandma.


>> For grace, born and raised

in Detroit weekly visits with


Grandma were a staple growing

up.


>> Just like watching TV

sometimes lot of times you


watch family feud.


>> Family feuds a good show.

Ya what you play long. Yes.


>> And you may not be surprised

to learn the Queen of soul was


also the Queen of soul food.


>> What was your favorite dish

probably her macaroni her


background he was so good she's

trying to teach you can show


you a little bit but.


>> Who is in very good cooking

skills inside grace got a lot


from her Grandma persons of

style love of family, but


perhaps most notably too.


>> To a sold for singing.


>> Her favorite stage is right

here at new Bethel Baptist


Church in Detroit that they

replace where Aretha Franklin


famously got her start.


>> She was about your age when

people really started taking


notice of her is an almost

surreal to you to be singing in


the same place where she wants.


>> It's crazy to think that a

lot of the same people that


were with her when she was

younger in the same church are


watching me now.


>> We do have a favorite song

of your grandmother's overall


don't play that song is

definitely one of my favorites


that we succeed together.


>> I love how she throws her

boys and it it's so amazing


when you listen to her music

but she inspire you


the way that she can change any

song to maker her own she


learned a lot from her yet just

by watching her.


>> Grace recently took those

lessons to American idol


singing one of her grand mosque

last stop shot of maybe 2 shot.


>> Not enough to get her to the

next round but a chance to take


yet another note from the Queen

herself.


>> When you get up and when you

sing here where your


grandmother got her start.

Do you feel her presence with


you I feel her presence with me

any time I perform I would


think of how she used to.


>> Prepare in her dressing room

and just her words of courage,


and whenever me and my siblings

every fight so always remember


that God is with you on stage

and that whatever happens you


know, they are great.


>> But the lessons grace holds

most dear came off the stage


like standing up for what you

believe it.


>> Was very involved in civil

rights movement. She was very


involved, especially when black

lives matter came up again in


2014.


>> And to live and love.


>> Fiercely is very

compassionate and I don't feel


like a lot of people got to see

that side of her they often


just cared a lot about the

people around her and her love


which is very strong.


>> Guys it was just so much fun

to meet her to learn those


things about her grandmother

who knew that she loved


watching family feud and I love

tearing grace saying the words


to a no way was just so

beautiful now it's not just


grace and her family she

actually has an older sister


who is currently a music major

at Howard University and grace


is performing with the Detroit

youth choir, they're set to hit


Carnegie Hall later this summer

guy.


>> I'm gorgeous point credible

plan you've got to tell grace


that she is an open invitation

is Carson by the way to come on


to the voice, yeah, I have a

feeling that she had. Well


there we would love you, I love

to hear that I will tell you.


Thanks bye.


>> Words are this weekend and

we have our own wizard of Oz


here to break down the nominee

is which is funny because I


just interviewed, Judy

Garland's granddaughter.


>> That's just work out anyway.

NBC News national political


correspondent Steve. Here's

some highs. Good morning.


>> A lot of movies that I feel

like people are able to stream


Steve.


at home this time around so

people might actually know a


lot of the movies in the

running this year can you kind


of break down what we can

expect this week it's gotten a


little different right the rise

of streaming last year's


obviously people stayed away

from movie theaters because of


the pandemic so.


>> It's been a little different

with the Astors last year's


this will be the 94th Academy

Awards this weekend, the first


was back in 1929 the host that

you're by the way Douglas


Fairbanks, senior also you

govern at the first Academy


Award to 3 hosts this year it's

going to be one to Sikes Regina


Hall Amy show remember by the

way the last few years they


haven't had enough is going to

be an official host or 3 of


them, I think it since 2018

with Jimmy Kimmel some other


numbers for you here, the most

nominations for a movie,


it's the power of the dog 12

nominations for that movie a


lot of expectations. There

Steven Spielberg you talk about


shifty in the last segment

always towering over March


Madness it Steven Spielberg.


>> He got to get it got to get

in.


>> Look at this 6 consecutive

decade with West Side Story is


nomination for best director

best picture 6th consecutive


decades, 6 field work has been

may go away back to close


encounters of the 3rd kind,

here's another one writer Ken


is bran off. He's making a

little bit of history. This is


now been nominated Belfast for

best original screenplay here


this is the 7th different

category last in his career


that he has received an Oscar

nomination for so ally actor


director adapted screenplay now

best original screenplay for


Kenneth Branagh so he's kind of

made some history of his own


your see if he can use a guest

on our show not too long ago.


We're talking now best actor

director picture, what do you


think let's take a look at what

the odds say here we show that


we show you these with a

basketball tournament will show


you the here here's all the

nominees for best picture


remember they expanded it last

few years, but there is a clear


favorite as I said its power,

the dog, 3 to 5 favorite I walk


away. Yeah, I think to Idaho to

is the live second choice here


3 to 2 odds here. Cota it's a

movie it's got I think a lot of


kind of late the tension in

this Oscar season, those odds


of getting shorter we just

mentioned brand 9 Belfast,


14 to one you've got some

longer shots there you see West


Side Story 33 to one, but that

power the Dakota, I think


interesting race to watch

there. If you took a look at


best actress here Jessica

chest. Contest. Well.


>> How about Nicole hahaha all

stroll 72 died.


>> Now, here's the interesting

one to me the biggest single


favorite you're going to get in

all the asteroids it's will


Smith King Richard alley in the

Williams sisters father,


one to 10 knots, I will just

say this was the category last


year with the biggest upset

that's true. This is where


Anthony Hopkins remember this

walked away with best actor


last even he didn't expect it

so you see will Smith is one to


10 keep in mind. Here pretty

awesome yeah could be some


other put this is what's mis

best performance of his career


against and yes, even given the

Dali I think the odds of it


happening twice in a row,

infinitesimally small, but I


just first happenings there's a

lot of first happenings couple


other things here to you know

sort of historically here.


This was a not where we were

supposed to go here we go.


Well, here's the question here

for you guys I was the first


word ask you this there are

some historic we say the first


deaf actor nominated for covid

marlee matlin is also in the


movie was the first deaf

actress to win an Oscar.


Now we have the first deaf

actor nominee, Troy kotsur for


that but here's a trivia

question for you guys I we're


supposed to get the other one

of the other I'm sorry the


trivia question for you here.

We mentioned 3 women hosting


the Oscars this year, here's

your question you can see who


was the first woman to host the

Oscars show low with the Ellen.


P was a you know what they will

Costa, I mean she had really

magnificent costumes throughout


her time.

>> Over the years I have been

lucky enough to step into the


today show kitchen and watch

the best chefs from around the


world, teach us some incredible

recipes we have made that pesto


which with all the time I got

this one. None of which I


mastered because well actually

don't know the first thing

those days behind me for good


today, Dr. Now super chef

important meal of the day

american-style on that with all

confident about this one and I

>> This is trying to make you

laugh.


I really know how to sign a I

mean I tried it before I don't


I don't know just I don't have

to flip it over could we just


learned that basic thing for.


>> It's so such a lot of

football over. Let's start with


sunny side up okay, which is my

favorite style of all right,


it's the least Cook as the sun

set up. Then you have over easy


you have over medium with every

keeps getting could more we


have a right here. A little

one-on-one for cracking eggs


never cracked on the court.

OK Greg on the corner home.


Yeah, you're not you're not

going to look a little quick on


a flat surface for the moment

then see that with her to try


to get just let me try it it is

the only way to learn who are


strong so yeah there you go,

okay, yeah, round 2 is their


practice makes you think okay,

so when lightly does let that


just fall right into the pain

when I see you just did you


class was that on purpose.

I have a choice to be able to


control this okay who it was

and I'm just here the bi-state


okay just driving it were and

are you feeling a little


stressed like it's going to

burn. No number it's very low


temperatures, okay there low,

so you don't have to worry


about that in the should stick

because non-stick pan, yours


looks like something that is

not true like any how perfect


that I mean it really does a

good looks fake it does like


yours and my role does have

that you are you see that's the


confidence you need to know

your good for my good for my


confidence so we're going to

get a little bit above okay.


And then once the notes down

we're going to take our spoon


and we're going to put the

butter over the white okay that


will help keep that school to

take a hot liquid. Yes, you're


putting over over or

undercooked eggs but not on the

like a pro I put on our plates


wow glad that those play okay,

making it one of the easiest


things but I will tell you this

if you ever want to know how


great a chef is yes, he'll make

it really why it's time there's


a lot of skill and how do you

get off the pan so it just


won't fall right off the allied

the slider I don't know if you


have a little Lakey seesaw

okay, yes, this incredible by


the way you did it saying well

look at the okay the little


black pepper if you like it.


>> How do you know, though I

guess I'm still obsessed with


this like the yolk how do I

know if it's like.


>> Runny or thick enough to go

because the easy part one it


run right this is the whites,

okay what Cook OK. So the


whites of Cook ucas bringing

that sunny side up


and that S toast just 2 shots

What's right out to everybody

scrambling the eye as you do


with the force doesn't matter

no okay with his look the more


parents who are so often

pepper. Okay, yes, always I'm


okay.


Like this much solvers that you

must not as great, but what


about remember you can always

add more later, okay, I know,


I I tend to undersell but now

I've been told why so many of


you chefs to put myself that I

might be over salting has that


good. Let's grade was very well

with that together


general but milk in it are now.


>> Scrambled the like, but the

fact they're like the milk and


there is such that it's a kid's

call my wife much Yousef is


always good for juniors.


>> Haha that's amazing well.


>> Okay for will put a little

butter here where the foam up a


little bit.


>> This is my big question

about money when to put the


toppings and.


>> So there's no right answer

to that put him before like


we're going today, yeah, and

let them cook a little bit.


The new but the wait a minute

you with the vegetables and


before the. It's yes that is

one way of doing it's okay,


wow they're blowing my mind

let's go ahead, but whatever


vegetables to meet you want to

put okay so this would be when


I put the spinach and yes,

which I don't usually like


sponges but I want to learn so

I know it's often up a little


bit of these are big old leaves

side shops, those small know


they're going to come down a

couple peppers.


>> So we have this going and

remember all these need to


cured meats so they're already

cooked enough okay. No word


about cooking.


>> We sat there for like

heating about exactly okay,


let's go ahead and poor aig's

okay. So this is enough that's


enough I have to wait for these

to be bringing all right thing


okay there you go.


I can say.


>> So now go ahead and spread

we're a little because we want


to get everything evenly in

court. There you go in the now


we're going to let it sit her

to get over there. I want to


just look like you just


now anyone under my age a

little bit allowing the running


this to run off and go

underneath.


>> You don't I don't have any

right to have a little bit


well, and they're just make a

whole part help each other and


have it go and then I was okay,

but I want that ice so like any


of this little extra bit of

snow is looking to leave it


like this for one 2nd did you

feel like a spatula like this


is the good implement what you

see is a reverse pass the


rubber spatula okay.


>> Would you rather just put it

happens right here and pulled


over and you want to flip it on

for years.


>> I think I need to learn to

fly. One assist the foot of a


system a system that have

especially under little yet


only use that to help me put my

own the whole thing oh yeah oh


my gosh, no way can I do this,

you know, and it's hard yeah


and everything's hard pressed

to go for the top with what I


was going to leave it that way

on the left hand, okay, yeah,


these different okay, yeah,

we're specialist and are alike


and I'm Alexis tent, but the

flip over scare


haha okay was I know it's going

to fail he want I want to ruin


it.


Go back he does get the rest

over OK, but that wasn't good


like good business post no I

didn't you know your perfect


but is it a look at a poll that

now every toe your phone over


again is okay okay, so the now

you all agree or she's okay to


have the best that we yeah haha

so put it on the for this point


the ground. Oh that's

interesting wise that you want


to flip it over you on the Heat

to sit right on top and which


is a sausage has offered to us.

Pam is my going for it there


you can get all of us it was

all innocent.


We did a good job with bank I

know now I want it, but it


wasn't supposed to be like half

of this or was it supposed to


really be covering some

locations home cooking you know


that you're in the restaurant

owner that this is what you're


about to eat at home. So that

is perfect for at home, but I


want to get in a car now I want

to. They want to put my words


with things like another folder

this like that that this photo.


The system the system that

they're now now now it's


getting kind of Brown is that 2

Brown no you're fine. I mean


look


no you know it is and now this

these guys are falling out.


Well, technically you're going

to OK so you've got to keep


your eyes on the prize that

think they're getting too warm.


Come on, don't know you know

this is a fail you don't have


to be nice about it can I just

think that yes okay all right


that we put on our plates

that's it. Yeah I would flip it


again, I feel like it needs

another live look at what I see


there you go. Yeah. I liked it

a lot this is the status on let


you know it we all know what

let's compare.


so all that bad though it

doesn't say what could be a


hard act. This is just one part

of breath last we still have to


do the candy bacon and the

powerful pain. Okay, it's also


get get these on the table

right.


think I was going to say you

see if I may be can I just put


it in the microwave can we

still be friends. We could be


friends because of your cooking

the means and the candied bacon


seems intimidating. Yes, super

cells are restaurants are the


home of the candy be okay, this

is our specialty you can not


even come in as a regular big,

we don't offer it either we do


it so over the fact that they

open it for you to get us one


against have a cup of brown

sugar cane for tonight.


Like just pack it a little

packet down


a layer of bacon had


sideways


so there could have been home

the reason why the mic with


isn't the best method. Yeah

because its troubles down the


bacon well that's true, you

know where as you cook it on


the sheet tray reconvene oven

it keeps the bacon the same


with that the big now you have

this like wire rack and foil


what's is that necessary it's

really necessary but can okay


okay so we have the wire act

that way the bacon isn't going


so fast you get into cooking,

they're now I got in the


cooking by watching her on TV.


>> He was my inspiration, he

was very unique


and if I wasn't going to cell

phones will be a Navy seals we


had a really good uniform or.


>> I want to wear uniforms have

a chef's you know we have some


cold since everyone has where

all the pictures of what I


don't know if I deserve it

first thing we're going to do


is we're going to freshly

cracked but brought out how


much how much property you

like. Well, I like a little


over a little bit on news.

That's the thing about cooking


it's about the person up the

rest want to go right down one


piece for see your revenues

were everywhere.


>> I know it's like why did you

know now I station watched you


for Susan smart classy getting

a lot on. Well I want to take


>> But that also is looking to

yeah and they want to sprinkle


brown sugar on top each.

He's so as


what is it that you would like

to add.


So you want to grab these to

take 2 of them in the door or


doing other we're not trying.

Yeah, always the hometown of


know 400 degrees. Yes, but your

bacon on a rack just for the


time. We'll have to worry about

it anymore will come out


perfectly in a won't lose all

of this side. Well, the head of


an a 445. That's got the matter

which wrapped no continue both


okay now we have the boiler on

then that matters with threat


as we have it on bake. It will

matter.


>> You are almost there with

candy bacon that wasn't that


hard know that was easy yeah.


you know worked on this for

years to come. But this is the


journal Ferguson, perfect

pancake, yes, that's right


here. So we're going to start

with the batter for side by


this quick yeah haha yes, the

bye bye. Okay so.


>> We're going to do first is

our witness going to start with


our version will my version.


>> 2 cats.


Now why not just use old

buttermilk like why are we


using our own.


>> Okay so this is what

happened in the restaurant,


but so expensive compared to

regular milk that I could not


feasibly charge what I had seen

for how much but it is


possible. So I figured out how

to make the same exact thing.


>> Happen so milk plus of this,

it looks like a quarter cup of


that still didn't know and I

just during this, I know it's
