tv World News Now ABC February 27, 2017 2:30am-4:01am PST
good morning. i'm diane macedo. >> i'm kendis gibson. here are some of the top headlines this oscar monday. on "world news now," not even the best screen writers in hollywood could have scripted the end of the show. "la la land" first announced as the winner of the best picture, and then the producer corrected the record and announced that "moonlight" won the award. we're live in hollywood to find out what happened. >> host jimmy kimmel got in a few digs at president trump during the show. throughout the night winners mostly stayed away from politics. many of them made pleas for inclusion. our full oscar coverage is straight ahead. the father of william ryan owens who was killed during a raid in yemen is demanding an investigation. bill owens said he refused to meet with president trump when
his son's body was flown back to dover air force base. and spokt expect more charges, at least 19 of them, against the suspect in the drunk driving hit and run at mardi gras. his blood alcohol level was nearly three times louisiana's legal limit. those are just some of the top stories on this monday, february 27th. from abc news, this is "world news now." if there's anything we learned from the oscars, it's that sometimes things don't go according to to plan and you go with it. >> so just give you a sense, normally that little part that says abc news would be lit up at this point. >> those screens over there would have logos nilt. >> these screens wouldn't have multiple colors like something took a hit in it.
>> this little block over here wouldn't have multiple colors flashing at us as if we're at a rave. we took a power hit -- >> a few minutes ago the power went out. we're operating on the generator. >> and it's clearly the same production manager working at the oscars. we hired him within the last hour. >> enough about our own little problems here. let's get to that stunning end to the academy awards. one report from hollywood is calling this an unprecedented fiasco. >> the chaos erupted after warren beatty and faye dunaway announced "la la land" won best picture. it fell to the producer of "la la land" to correct it saying wa>> "la la landincluding emma actress. they collected many more throughout the night. marci gonzalez is in hollywood with all the details for us. >> reporter: good morning. we're watching some of the stars start to leave the governor's ball right now, and it seems like this mixup is all anyone can talk about. people are shaking their heads trying to figure out how this happened. >> "la la land." >> reporter: a jaw dropping
ending f >> there's a mistake. "moonlight". you won best picture. >> reporter: a mixup over the . >> this is not a joke. "moonlight" has won best picture. "moonlight" best picture. >> reporter: drama after a star studded night that started with some zings. >> i want to say thank you to president trump. remember last year when it seemed like the oscars were racist? >> reporter: the host -- >> nice dress. is that an ivanka? >> reporter: the first to turn the message political. >> i'm against any form of wall that wants to separate us. >> reporter: but other than a surprise visit -- >> this is the home of the academy awards. >> reporter: from some unsuspecting tourists -- >> what's your favorite actor? >> that man right there. >> denzel? >> reporter: the 89th academy awards kept the focus on the stars.
>> mahershala ali. >> reporter: he won best supporting actor. for his performance in "moonlight". and the award for best supporting actress going to per "moonlight". and the award for best supporting actress going to viola davis. "la la land" taking home six of the 14 oscars for which it was nominated. including best actress. >> i realize a moment like this is a huge confluence of luck and opportunity. >> reporter: casey affleck. >> reporter: best actor going to the tar star of "manchester by the sea". i'm dumbfounded i'm included. >> reporter: and finally the real winner, best picture. and even though it turns out "la la land" did not win the big award, it was still a huge night for the master mind of this film, damien chazelle. he's now the youngest person to
win an oscar for best director. >> they have to be proud of themselves despite the mixup. the big question this morning, how did that wrong card end up in warren beatty's hand. do we have any idea what happened? >> there's still no official explanation. people are piecing together when they print out the winner, they put it on two different cards. one goes on each end of the stage. the card they brought up to announce for best actress, emma stone, after they read the name, they handed it to emma stone, and she said she had that card still in her hand when best picture was announced. well somehow that second card was handed to warren beatty instead of the best picture card. so people who do all the tabulation are in charge of keeping things straight definitely have a lot of explaining to do. >> yes, they do. >> yeah. marci, the big question
everybody wants to know is who are you wearing? >> i don't even know. isn't that terrible? i'm so not a fashion -- i'm so not a fashion person. i don't know. >> i actually -- i don't think that's bad at all. i think it's great that you can look as beautiful as you do without even knowing. >> without knowing who it is. >> who are you wearing, kendis? >> this is salvation army. thrift store. finest. >> marci, always great to talk to you. thank you for staying up with us and we appreciate it. you look beautiful. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> stay with us. we have much more from the big night coming up. >> right here from our studios otherwise known as a rave right now. but first this morning's other big stories.
president trump is again taking heat from members of a gold star family member. the angry comments came as a defense department announced an investigation into last month's raid in yemen. >> hours before the president hosted the governor's ball last night at the white house, the administration responded to the father of the navy s.e.a.l. killed in the operation. >> reporter: the father of the only navy s.e.a.l. to die in the raid is calling on the president to investigate ryan owen's death. the government owes my son an investigation. william owens told the miami herald with a direct message to the president. don't hide behind my son's death to prevent an investigation. we watched the president and his daughter travel to dover air force base. >> we just returned from an amazing visit with a great, great family at dover. it was something very sad, very beautiful. ryan, a great man. >> reporter: but william owens told military officials he didn't want to meet mr. trump adding, i didn't want to make a scene about it. but my conscious couldn't let me talk to him. he also questioned the raid.
why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn't barely a week into his administration. >> it was highly successful. it achieved the purpose. >> reporter: saying valuable intelligence was found on computers and phones, but along with owen's life, an aircraft was lost. senator john mccain questioned the characterization. >> when you lose a $75 million airport, and more importantly, an american life is lost and wounded, i don't believe that you can call it a success. >> reporter: george stephanopoulos asked if there will be an investigation. >> the son is a true american hero. >> reporter: does the president want an investigation. >> i haven't spoken with him directly. i would manage he would be supportive of that. >> william owens said he didn't vote for president trump, and he was troubled by his treatment of the kahne.
the gold star family. >> have you ever been to s. the gold star family. >> have you ever been to arlington cemetery? >> he was very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me. his wife, if you look at his wife, she was standing there. she had nothing to say. she probably -- maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. you tell me. >> reporter: the pentagon says there will be a routine investigation of owen's death, but it hasn't yet started. coming up, the bizarre crash that ended with a car falling seven stories onto a shopping center. see how much worse it actually could have been. and later it's not only hollywood's biggest night of the year, but it's also our biggest night of the year. we'll have a complete wrap-up of this year's winners of the second annual world news now now-scars. >> first here's a look at

there is still no explanation for how in the world this happened. >> "la la land." >> a jaw dropping ending for hollywood's biggest night. >> there's a mistake. "moonlight," you guys won best picture. >> reporter: a mixup over the winner for best picture. >> this is not a joke. "moonlight" has won best picture.

1,400 bottles of champagne on ice. you do the math. definitely quite a celebration this morning. >> reporter: sounds like they had enough champagne for you. >> i know. >> and, parsy, what's being said backstage about this whole mix-up? >> on stage warren beatty said he had the card for the winner and that it said emma stone "la la land." that's why he looked a little confused at first, but then emma stone backstage said she took the card with her name on it after she won, so it's not that it was accidentally left behind. now this just goes to price waterhouse cooper. they're the ones who tabulated the results. still watting for an explanation from them. >> they have a lot of explaining to do. and no doubt all the producers from "la la land," they're the ones drinking the bottles of champagne. >> i'll tell you who's drinking right now, steve harvey. >> marci, thank you.
now let's go back deeper backstage for more details on the best picture mistake. >> abc's jason nathanson was backstage all night. jason, when did you know something was wrong? >> reporter: i stopped paying attention about a minute or so into the speech. i was trying to get my stuff ready. "la la land" won. that's the story. it won seven. i'm writing my pieces. and then all of a sudden everybody pauses and it's chaos, and he says, no, it's actually "moonlight." we all thought it was a joke. that's a joke jimmy kimmel would pull. that's crazy. it was about then we knew something was wrong, and we're getting some more explanations on what's actually happening. >> jason, give me a sense.
backstage, were there audible gasps? what are you hearing among the people there in the production? what was it like? >> reporter: audible gasps. that's definitely a way to describe it. it was chaotic. never seen anything like that. we'll never see anything like it again. we were dumbfounded this would happen at the oscars, the premier event. this is the big night in hollywood. and that's what happened. what we're understanding is there's two cards for every winner. on either side of the stage, there's a card for best actress for emma stone, left and right. so she had hers. she was holding hers, but if you look at a frozen screen grab of the card he's holding, it says best actress. that's the category they were reading. that's what happened. and that's where the problem was. >> oh. so that's -- so they grabbed the spare card and saw a "la la land." faye was like get it over with, "la la land."
>> exactly. >> now the big question will be how did that envelope end up in warren beatty's hand. i'm sure that's what everyone is trying to figure out. what did you make of the rest of the nights played out? "la la land" did not win best picture, but it did well across the board. >> it did, and it was the big winner on the night with six awards. the awards up to the end were predictable. when we saw "la la land" won, that's what we expected. but for "moonlight" to win, that was a surprise. although momentum has been growing for the film, but it was a big shock that not only what happened with the screw-up, but that "moonlight" beat "la la land" in the end. >> and the crews could be the have been more gracious in an awkward moment and seemed happy for the team behind "moonlight." >> that's what barry jenkins said. he said the "la la land" crew was gracious to him. >> that said, who do you think is drinking more alcohol tonight? the "la la land" people who lost or the "moonlight" people
celebrating? >> i think it's both. they're all going to be partying together at the governor's ball. they're having good fun. eventually they'll be able to laugh, but for you. damien chazelle won best director, the youngest ever to win. he did not come back backstage and talk to us. probably because he knew what he'd be asked about. >> yeah. all right. basically, they were carding him. that's why he didn't come backstage. >> jason nathan for us live if hollywood. jason, thank you so much. >> good night. >> in addition to all the awards, there's plenty of fun last night. after justin timberlake performance his oscar nominated song "can't stop the feeling," kimmel joked that it was such a great performance that if nsync was watching, they would probably let him back in the band. >> that actually goes an angry stare from justin timberlake.
earlier he photobombed emma stone during an interview. she never knew he was there until the moment was over. it was too late. >> it was great. one of the other moments people are talking about during the show was jimmy kimmel had a tour bus where they surprised them and they ended up in the audience there at the dolby theater. this is keith urban's perspective of that same moment. he was videotaping it or shooting it on his phone. so while the cameras for the oscars are taping moment, keith urban, sitting next to his wife, of course, nicole kidman, is shooting this and just cracking up. >> and jimmy kimmel is telling this guy gary, you don't have to shoot this on your phone. we're on television. meanwhile, half the celebrities had their phones out trying to
document this moment including, of course, keith urban whose video whose perspective we're seeing right now. >> my favorite moment is so gary's fiancee is coming up. she's going to see this guy. i think he's one of the ryans. >> she says ryan gosling is her favorite actor, and then lo and behold. >> look at her reaction at meeting ryan gosling. >> the look in her face. i absolutely understand what with that would be like. it was how i felt when ryan stopped by and visited me today in the studio. >> is that what you were like? >> i went like this. and i so appreciate you, ryan. thank you so much. >> my ryan is better looking. >> no. you keep your ryan. this is my ryan. >> more from the ryans and from hollywood coming up. >> we have red carpet. our best joan rivers and we try to break down the bests. >> deadpool gave me heart. >> we'll also get the rest of the morning's news, the president hosting his first social event at the white house with a similar message. >> find us on facebook and twitter. wnnfans.com and @abcwnn.

okay. "the mix" is going to have sort of a movie theme in essence. on a sad note you may have bill paxton passed away. he's well known for a number of movies. "aliens" and "titanic" but twister back in 1996. and so storm chasers who learned so much from him over the years and in -- and that movie inspired so many of them. they made this for him spelling his initials. they share third down on facebook. the unique way he and his colleagues remembered this celebrated actor. >> how much planning went into that?
>> they didn't have much time. he passed away over the weekend. at the young age of 61. that movie made a difference for so many people. >> kudos to them for pulling that off. >> makayla wright shared a story after she decided to mess with her little brother. she put makeup on him, a wig, eyelash extensions, a dress. she even added a final touch with a plate of strawberries on top of him saying no one wants to go to bed hungry. i'm just curious at what she gave her brother beforehand to make him sleep through this, and can we have some? >> that is awesome. >> how funny is that? >> it looks beautiful. >> speaking of having too much

this morning on "world news now," the colossal mix-up at the oscars. the biggest award of the night first goes to the wrong movie. so what happened here? we'll go live to hollywood for the latest. and investigating the russian connection. the growing calls for an official probe from both sides of the aisle into alleged russian interference into the presidential election. what one prominent republican lawmaker is now saying. and later we'll show you what happened when we sat down to watch the red carpet and got an exciting knock on the door. it is a surprise guest coming up on this oscar monday, february 27th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now."
>> this pretty much sums it up. >> no words. we have no words. >> by the way, here's what -- i want to describe my perspective for a quick second. i had been waiting to go to the bathroom, watching the award show. they announce "la la land." i think it's over. i get up, go to the bathroom, i come back, and the cast of "moonlight" is on the stage. >> we're going to break that down. hollywood is known for great scripting, amazing cliff hangers, emotional endings. some explosive plots. >> the show was running well for most of last night until this unexpected plot when it come to best picture. >> we want to play it all. you said the honor fell to warren beatty and faye dunaway. so watch what happened. there was a pause taking place for a while. he's trying to find the correct envelope. and she's like come on with it.
go on with it. because he knows he has the wrong envelope. >> she thinks he's trying to be funny? >> yeah. >> she's like come on. >> "la la land." >> she looks over and all she sees is "la la land." >> he's showing it to her like what do we do with this? >> then this is the producer. >> there's a mistake. >> before all of this, the interesting things, as they were talking you saw a tech with a headset. i was looking at it live on tv like why is this guy up there? did somebody crash the stage? what's happening. you see the tech walking around, and it turns out what was why. >> so much chaos, that it's hard to make out what happened until justin hurwitz comes out and tries to explain, and then warren beatty explains. >> i opened the envelope, and it said emma stone "la la land." that's why i took such a long look at faye and at you. i wasn't trying to be funny.
>> well, you were funny. >> thank you very much. >> wow, this is -- >> you remember the elizabeth taylor moment at the golden globes where she walked on and was like -- but this wasn't a senior moment. >> this was just a mistake that happened. everyone is now resurrecting steve harvey's mishap. let's check in with lesley messer. what was the reaction where you were? >> reporter: just shock. you could not have scripted a more dramatic ending to an awards show. it was unbelievable. >> aside from the mistake, was part of the surprise that "moonlight" won at all or was it just the confusion? >> i think it was the confusion of it.
and the director of the film and mahershala came back. they were saying how shocked they were. they said they loved "la la land." they accepted they won, and mahershala said he felt bad going up on stage. he said it was hard to feel joy at a moment like that. you felt bad all the way around for both of them. >> lesley, you're back there, backstage right there just steps away from where all of this is playing out. take us during the moment. what was it like? >> reporter: there was a lot of confusion as i'm sure you felt. you were wondering what is going on? is this a joke? this is a weird joke if it's a joke, and then there was a gasp that went through the room.
no one could believe that this was happening. because this doesn't happen. this has never happened before. >> i mean, you can tell by the number of times jordan has to say this is not a joke and even holds up the card. how unexpected this all was. >> reporter: yeah, and actually, emma stone backstage after said part of the reason she was confused was because she actually had her best actress card. they gave it to her as a keepsake. so there was a lot of confusion as to what might have happened. were there duplicate cards. i think we'll be hearing about this for a long time. there's a lot more we don't know about how it went down. >> apparently there's duplicate cards. there's one on both sides of the stage. emma got hers for best actress. maybe warren and faye picked up her other duplicate card when they went on stage which is why he saw "la la land" and emma stone and created that moment and pause. >> at the end of the day, mistakes happen. it's just you hope something like this doesn't happen. and you feel bad for everyone involved. >> i think the positive thing to find in all of this as you were
saying how you felt so bad and even the guys from "moonlight" couldn't believe it because they love "la la land." i think both of the parties involved could not have been more gracious to each other in all of this. you heard the "la la land" cast talk about how happy they were for "moonlight". emma stone said how much she loved the movie. and the guys of "moonlight" sung the praises of "la la land" as well. >> reporter: totally. this is why you can't go to the bathroom. >> this is why some of us should not have gone to the bathroom. >> lesley messer live backstage at an oscars for the ages, no doubt. >> will not forget that one. >> we'll have more oscar coverage throughout our show. we didn't get dressed up for nothing. so stick around with us. >> and lesley, thanks again. let's move to the morning's top stories. the white house insists it's premature to call for a special prosecutor to look into the alleged russian intervention into the presidential election.
>> the president is blaming the public and the media for playing up this story and a prominent lawmaker is weighing in. >> reporter: president trump battling the reports that members of his campaign spoke with russians to help win the election. tweeting russia talk is fake news. put out by the dems and played up by the media in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks. this can comes amid growing calls for an official investigation. a prominent republican calling for a special prosecutor and that the attorney general should recuse himself. >> you're going to need to use the special prosecutor's statute and office to take not just to recuse. you can't just give it to your deputy. >> reporter: both the house and senate have already launched investigations. marco rubio underscoring the need for a nonpartisan probe. >> i think it's very important that the work of the senate intelligence committee be credible. >> reporter: corey lewandowski
echoing the president's denial. >> never did i or anyone i know of have communication or contact with anyone from russia or the russian government. >> reporter: the president dined with his daughter and her husband. with the vocal proponent of brexit, this just hours after announcing he will not be dining with his sworn enemy, the media at this year's white house correspondence dinner. when asked for jeff sessions recusing himself from the investigation, the white house said we're not there yet. gloria riviera, abc news, washington. coming up, the new details into the frightening crash over the weekend into the heart of new orleans mardi gras. what we're finding out about the man accused of plowing into a crowd, injuring more than two dozen. and last half hour you saw how great we are at judging fashion. see what happens when we're joined by the most fashionable person we could find. >> who is it? >> you'll have to wait and see. first, here's a look at today's

an academy ward but several films during his career. picks paxton's family said only he died from complications due to a surgery. and the star of "the people's court, judge wapner, is dead at the age of 97. his 12 years on the tv bench inspired decades of other courtroom shows. judge wapner was an actual california judge before he presided over the people's court. we're waiting to hear from judges on a world record attempt in mexico city. nearly a thousand english bulldogs were gathered at mexico city's monument of the revolution. who knew there was a world record for english bulldogs in the one place, but apparently there is. >> another record attempt this weekend fell flat. flat. as a pancake. as part of the russian folk holiday in siberia chefs attempted to whip up the biggest
