[ cheers and applause ] so, as we mentioned, the oscars are this sunday. everybody excited for the oscars? [ cheers and applause ] you're excited. and there are a lot of great films in this year's oscar race that could walk away with plenty of awards. but i think one film this year in particular stands out from the pack and has positioned itself to have a huge night come sunday. let's take a look at the trailer. ♪ >> narrator: this winter, see a film that's not afraid to pander to your emotions. >> seth: whatever happened to us, diane? >> narrator: a film that is shamelessly timed for award season. >> seth: i love you, buddy. no matter what, i'll always love you. >> narrator: "oscar bait." [ laughter ] critics are calling "oscar bait" a triumph, daring. and the "los angeles times" says "oscar bait" is the most blatant attempt to win an oscar since "the king's speech."

[ audience ohs ] [ sobbing ] "a story of redemption." >> you got to stop blaming yourself, man. >> seth: i can't. >> it wasn't your fault. >> seth: it's not? not my fault? i had, like, 100 drinks. and then, i stole that public city bus full of people. [ laughter ] and then i made a bet i could drive across the bridge with the lights off. i didn't make the bet with anyone else, just myself so i didn't win any money when i made it. and yet i still had to prove to myself i could do it again with my eyes closed, in reverse, at 100 miles per hour. and then, when i completed that i drove to the middle of the bridge and started doing celebratory donuts, and that's when everybody flew out the back emergency door into that freezing water. everybody died but me, and you're telling me, it's not my fault? [ laughter ] >> narrator: featuring pretentiously artistic shots of
12:44 am
a man's hand grazing wheat. the grabbing of a bedsheet to indicate an orgasm. [ laughter ] this thing. that thing. that weird spike lee thing where the character is gliding towards the camera, and it's like, "is he walking? is he floating? what the hell is that thing?" [ laughter ] and one long shot of a man playing solitaire, which serves two purposes. the first purpose to impress you with how long he goes without a single cut. the second purpose is more metaphorical. he's playing solitaire not just because he's alone in this game, but he's also alone in life. and when he sadly looks up and says, "i lost," he's not just referring to losing a game of cards. he's again, and not to belabor the point, suggesting he's lost in life. >> seth: i lost. [ laughter ] >> narrator: boom, there's your oscar right there, mother[ bleep ]. and just so we've covered all the bases, here's the racial tension scene again, but in french. ♪ [ speaking french ]
12:45 am

>> narrator: oh, and one scene straight-up stolen from the movie, "carol." >> would you like to come visit me this sunday? >> seth: yes. >> what a strange girl you are. >> seth: why? >> you flung out of space. ♪ [ laughter ] >> narrator: "oscar bait." coming soon to that weird, independent movie theater one town over that's always about to go out of business. [ laughter ] [ squeaking ] >> i missed dancing with you. >> seth: i've still got a few moves. [ pops ] >> seth: no. oh, god. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: that's a lock. it's an oscar lock. we'll be right back with more "late night," everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪

>> seth: welcome back. >> thank you. i'm so lucky. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i was realizing -- i feel like you also taught me how to spell bananas and i was at an age where i definitely should have known, when that song came out. >> the problem -- well i -- >> seth: i should have known bananas. >> you should have known that and you know the thing is that i barely did. because i can't spell anything. that's the funny part. like i've taught everyone bananas but i'm the worst speller. >> seth: i think the key is if all spellings were in really hit catchy pop songs, we'd all be better spellers. >> i think so. >> seth: yeah. >> a, b, c, d -- >> seth: there you go -- that's how we know that! >> yeah! >> seth: and i know he's very young for a "voice" contestant. >> yeah. >> seth: that you have younger contestants this year. >> it's so incredible. i mean, so far -- >> seth: he's 13? >> 13 years old. >> seth: okay. >> and you haven't even seen how talented this guy is, it's unbelievable. and also just -- you can see him talking, like he's so comfortable.
1:02 am
i'm like, "what is wrong with these kids?" >> seth: yeah. >> you feel like so -- i was like -- they're so weird, they're so comfortable. >> seth: so there was no way 13-year-old gwen stefani could have done that? >> no. >> seth: really? >> no. did you see how fast i answered that, "no!" >> seth: yeah, and now your oldest is 10? is that right? >> yeah. and that's what i'm like gauging it by, i'm like, wow and, you know, i guess they just -- everyone just, i don't know, just way more talented and just way more calm and used to having likes and fans, you know what i mean? it's a different -- it's just different. >> seth: they live a more social life without meeting people or being in front of people. >> they have a whole platform. they're already on youtube and on social media, so it's like a whole different thing. >> seth: yeah, that's true. basically when i walked out for my first day of school, i'd only met my parents. [ laughter ] it was very hard not to be terrified. so the other fun dynamic about the show, obviously the dynamic with the judges is i think what makes "the voice" so unique. what's the extra fun thing about it is you and blake are a couple. you're dating. >> we are? >> seth: yeah, this is a lot of -- this is on the covers of magazines.
1:03 am
you don't even have to read the magazines to know that. >> it's so crazy -- it's so unbelievable. okay, now i'm going to try to really think hard about how to talk about this. i love blake. he is to the most incredible guy. >> seth: he is a wonderful guy. >> like everybody -- everybody loves blake. and that's the thing, like there's no way around it. he's just a sparkly like happy, amazing person. >> seth: and, hes -- let's be honest, i don't want to run you down here, but he's the most successful voice coach by far, right? >> that's true and he is in trouble this season. >> seth: he is? okay. >> and i'm about ready to get on that. >> seth: and -- and you guys will be okay, though? this is not going be a wedge that drives you as a couple apart? >> he's been on the couch a few nights so far, yeah. >> seth: okay, gotcha. [ light laughter ] >> seth: you did not know country music very well before you met blake? >> i didn't even know blake shelton exist in the world. i had no idea. like i had no idea but it's interesting because weirdly my mom and my sister-in-law used to watch the show before me so they did. and -- and it's weird because
1:04 am
getting to know -- just being on the show is just so magical. i mean, you're surrounded by music the entire time, whether it's like picking songs for your team or listening to, you know, really talented people sing, it's just such an incredibly inspiring show. and that really opened me up to new music. not just country, but all different genres and different styles of singing and just the first season alone, i was like so -- i just didn't know i was going to be so inspired being on that show. >> seth: i married someone who loves country music, so sort of the last 10 years of my life she brought it into my world but like she doesn't sing it. so, are there times where you're listening to country music and you don't even recognize that that's blake? >> no. i -- trust me, i am like the biggest blake shelton fan ever now, like i know all of his music. but it's interesting because i didn't grow up with country but my parents were really into bluegrass and folk music. >> seth: okay. >> and so i went to a lot of bluegrass concerts and my first ever concert i ever went to was emmylou harris, which was a country artist. >> seth: of course, there you go. >> back in the day i got pulled out of girl scouts and we went to the palomino club in l.a.
1:05 am
it was like, you know, so it's kind of full circle in a weird way, but -- >> seth: did that sort of derail your girl scouting? [ light laughter ] >> no. i think that the thing about country music that is so similar to just, i guess my music, is a way, it's just very, it's very storytelling and heartfelt. and, you know, i think that's one thing i can relate to and i've learned a lot. i'm just so happy to learn something new at this point in my life, like -- >> seth: and i know from the last time blake was here, he was telling us that you guys co-wrote a song together. >> we did. >> seth: and now -- and that was a song for him -- you know, for me picturing co-writing a song together, is it you guys sort of jamming, him holding a guitar, you singing lyrics, how did it go down? >> no, it was really weird because we actually hadn't been hanging out that long at that point at all. and we had one of those -- oh this -- maybe this is a terrible idea, what are we doing? like one of those -- it was almost like a weird, we weren't even together but we were breaking up at the same time. >> seth: gotcha. i've been there a few times, yeah. [ light laughter ] >> it was like scary. he had gone away and he sent me
1:06 am
this song like on -- like in an e-mail. and i was so scared. because at that point i really didn't know even what his voice really sounded like. i had heard him on the show. but i wasn't paying attention. >> seth: yeah. >> you know what i'm saying, like i was like, whatever, country, country guy is on. [ light laughter ] when's pharrell coming on? [ light laughter ] and then, i was like, what if i hate the song? this is super awkward. and i opened the song, and it was this incredible song called "break my heart," and it's basically like -- really has these really crazy 80 chords. like it's really -- really really good. so he said, "write the next verse for me." i was like, "ooh, weird, like this is incredible." i'm going to be writing with blake shelton. >> seth: this is such of the level that he can flirt at being a musician is so -- >> i know. [ laughter ] it worked too -- it's like. >> seth: i've never in my life had anything like, "you maybe want to write the next verse." i'm more like, "hey, can i get you another drink!" [ light laughter ] that's like the best i've ever done.
1:07 am
>> so good. but yeah, so i -- instead of writing, like finishing the song, i just wrote a verse back to him like about what where i was at and then we had this song. and it's been incredible because we get to hop on each other's stages and like i can be at like one of his like country shows and like come up and sing that song. and he's comes onto my stage, which was just so bizarre, he comes out there. it's like, what are you doing here? who are you? [ light laughter ] but it's been magical because just cross-pollination of music is pretty special, you know? >> seth: it is pretty special. i'm glad you said "of music."

[ cheers and applause ] you voted no on everyone outside of nikki haley. that was -- nobody voted "no" more than you did in the senate. were you surprised that other democratic senators did not hold the same standards that you did? >> well, i think every senator looks at these issues differently. they represent their states, they represent their values, i look at it this way, i review their record and i review what they've done, and if they aren't qualified, i reject them. if they stand for values antithetical to things new york stands for like clean air and clean water, i vote "no." so i really look at them individually. and some people believe that a president is entitled to his cabinet. i will look at these nominees based on whether they will do their job well or whether they will undermine basic fundamental rights. devos doesn't believe in public schools. she doesn't believe in public school education. >> seth: yeah. >> she won't invest in our public schools in a way that i think she must. so a lot of us voted against her.
1:16 am
she was just unacceptable. >> seth: yeah, that seemed like a no-brainer. yeah. [ laughter ] >> and pruitt, pruitt is a terrible choice as well. >> seth: yeah. >> as attorney general, he just kept suing the epa, always on behalf of the polluter, never on behalf of human health and protecting innocent people and protecting children. so i don't know why he would be chosen to head the epa. >> seth: do you feel like right now there is a situation because there are some senators in the republican party who are speaking up. a very small amount. >> yep. >> seth: lindsey graham, we hear from senator john mccain. do you feel like there are some of your colleagues on the republican side who have more fears about what the president is doing than they are voicing publically. >> i do. and i think they are frankly worried, i think there are many of them who are worried, particularly on foreign policy. some of the issues that they care about they think will be undermined. and so i do believe over time, more senators will speak out, vote against nominees and not pursue the trump agenda. and we need that leadership, desperately.
1:17 am
>> seth: it's a -- i guess it's a thing of what will it take? because i'm a little worried at what it's taken so far for that not to happen because i'm a little worried about -- >> well, for example, they don't agree that we should attack the judiciary. that was something that made many people very uncomfortable. that we have three branches of government, and it's designed to provide oversight and accountability. so that was something they didn't support. a lot of people are very concerned about russia hacking our election and don't know how to analyze his ties to russia and so they are worried about that. so there are real concerns. and i think after this nomination process is finished, we may see more courage, more disputes. both lindsey graham and john mccain have stood up several times because they pride themselves on their knowledge of foreign policy, and really think what president trump is doing is wrong, with regard to russia, with regard to -- a lot of the issues he said and how he's handled foreign policy. >> seth: i want to talk because, you know, obviously, elected officials evolve over time. you started in the house.
1:18 am
you were from a more rural district, a little bit -- you came from a place that was a little -- you know, pro-gun. and talk about how, as you shifted to the senate, your constituents sort of changed the kind of politician you were. >> without a doubt. for example, on the gun issue, when i was representing upstate new york, very rural area, very little gun violence. but when you sit down with a mother who has lost her daughter to gun violence, to a random, stray bullet, and when she's 17 years old, like you're going to do something about it. when you meet a mom who literally took her 4-year-old to the park and her child was killed, like you are going to work hard on that issue. and so as soon as i became appointed i met with families, i traveled the state, and i figured this is something i need to do something about. and that's why one of the first bills i wrote was to stop gun trafficking. because these gun crimes, they are coming from guns out of state, they are brought her directly by criminals, sold out of the back of a truck directly to criminals, and there's no federal law against it. so i thought this has to be
1:19 am
something that has common ground. and, you know, we got 58 out of 60 votes and i'm going to pass that law, i'm going to get that done on behalf of new yorkers that desperately need to end gun crime in our state. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i want to ask this, and yeah. obviously, the nra is this very powerful lobbying group, but i would imagine many of the gun owners in your district, in those rural districts who have guns, they're hunters who have them and they are responsible gun owners. it strikes me that i never quite can understand how they, there's not a way to communicate with them to also get them on the side of gun -- i can't believe they don't believe there needs to be more gun control. >> well, they do, they polled the country, 70% of americans, including nra members, believe in background checks, believe criminals shouldn't have access to weapons, who believe terrorists shouldn't have access to weapons. believe military-style gun shouldn't be readily available. military-style weapon clips shouldn't be readily available. these are for highly trained members of our military. so there is common ground. it's just that congress is so
1:20 am
far behind the american people. on a good day, they are 20 years behind the american people. and you see it -- you see it on every issue. [ cheers and applause ] you see it on -- you know, we are fighting -- >> seth: does that mean grunge, they listen to grunge? [ light laughter ] >> no, what i mean is something like paid leave. we are literally the only industrialized country in the world that doesn't have a paid leave program. and congress hasn't acted on that. >> seth: all right, so here's -- i know you're trying to get paid leave passed. and i feel the biggest issue now is how do you, how does anyone in your position communicate to people who picked donald trump on election day, as is their right, as they made a choice, sell the idea of family leave to people who, maybe their party's told them it's a waste of money. it's, you know, basically a payout to people who don't want to work. explain the importance of paid leave. >> okay. first of all, when anyone has a family emergency. if your mother's dying of cancer, you want to be able to
1:21 am
have a few weeks before she passes with her. you want to be able to deal with your family's affairs after. and that takes time. when you have a spouse who's ill and you want to be able to be there by her side. when you have a new baby, you want to be able to take time off. every other nation has paid leave, and we don't have that. and what that means is, anytime there is a family emergency, if that person can afford it, they're going to quit their job to meet the need if they have no paid leave. and the cost to our economy is unbelievable. we waste -- $320,000 is wasted in a woman's lifetime because she doesn't have paid leave. men they will earn $280,000 less in their lifetime because we don't have paid leave. so what it is, is an artificial drag on the economy. and because all of the other nations, industrialized nations provide it, we are at a competitive disadvantage. states that have done paid leave, overwhelmingly love it, california's had it for 10 years. 90% of businesses said it had no negative impact or positive impact or their bottom line. and 99% said it increased morale and retention. so it's a win/win for businesses and workers and it helps small business owners because they
1:22 am
can't afford what google and facebook can afford and if you can say for the cost of a cup of coffee per week, if you put that much aside, you can gurantee paid leave for all employees, all workers, big business, small business, part-time, full-time. so it's not a lot of money, it's $2 a week. you'd pay in, your employer would match it. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: and it seems so easy with everything you know, and you know more about where you work than i do. what is your optimism that something like that can get passed under president trump? >> well, i'll tell you what's different. something is very different right now. and it's regular people across america are standing up and demanding action. the women's march was truly the most inspiring moment of my entire life. i saw men, women, children, dogs, walking, marching, holding signs. it was -- >> seth: the dogs were holding signs? >> the dogs were holding signs! it was amazing. but this is an intersexual movement. so it's not just about one issue. you had people marching for black lives matter, people marching for lgbt equality, people marching for clean air,
1:23 am
clean water, reproductive rights, all issues. and that activism has continued. and so we've seen it, anytime president trump does something stupid, like his executive order on immigration and banning muslims, people rise up. they went rushing to every airport. they went to battery park. and this is literally our democracy in action. it's the first time i've ever seen people fight. i wasn't old enough during the vietnam era. i didn't see the civil rights movement. but this movement today is going to change things, seth. it's totally going to change outcomes. and we've already seen it working. remember on election day, day after, the first thing they were going to do is repeal obamacare. are we talking about that anymore? no. a year or two from now we might replace it or revise it, but that's because of the grassroots. that was the victory of regular people standing up. so if they fight for paid leave and they fight for these other awesome things, we might be able to move that mountain. >> seth: i think the power of people has been very impressive. very impressive. [ cheers and applause ]
1:24 am
i am hopeful, as i'm sure you are, that this energy that's coming from people who care very deeply about progressive issues because there will be other elections. there's going to be another one. it's like coming up. >> '18, '18, '18. >> seth: do you think the democratic party is going to effectively harness this energy into -- i know that 2018 is not particularly well lined up for the democratic party to take back huge gains. how do you feel so far? i know it's early days, do you feel like your party is doing enough to harness this energy? >> so i don't think you can harness it nor should you harness it. it is evolving, it is going viral, it is happening on its own. it's authentic, it's real. and that's why it's working. if you try to own it and say you're now going to do this, it would fall apart. it's -- it's -- you know, the women's march started with one woman making a facebook post, just saying, "i want to march." and then you had ten thousand, then fifty thousand, then hundreds of thousands and then we had millions of people marching all across the globe. that's what is powerful. you don't harness that. you let it happen. you invest in it, and i feel
1:25 am
like i'm part of that, like i'm just a small piece of something much larger than myself. we are all the resistance. and that's what's beautiful and that's what's powerful and that's what's going to make the difference, and that's why we're going to do well in '18. because people want to change what's happening, and they're going to own this democracy, they're going to own their ambition and they're going to change the outcomes. and that is necessary and that is good. >> seth: well, i am very excited to watch it all. [ cheers and applause ] thank you for the role you play. it's an honor to be represented by you. thank you so much for being here. >> thanks, seth. >> seth: senator kirsten gillibrand we'll be right back with music from tove lo!
