"spotlight," but i thought "the revenant" was going to win. chris rock's opening monologue, of course, addressing the controversy and everything that's been stirring around the oscars in terms of no nominees being people of color. let's see how he started the show. >> i'm here at the academy awards. otherwise known as the white people's choice awards. you realize if they nominated hosts, i wouldn't even get this job. y'all be watching ing ing neil patrick harris right now. is hollywood racist? you're damn right, hollywood is racist. you've grown accustom to it.

10:05 am
he made a joke about lynching. some people were like -- >> it was tough. >> but at the same time, after the fact, everybody was like, you know, it was like a cleansing in a way. that needed to be said. he did. he came out and did what he needed to do. he looked so relieved on the white carpet, at the after party. >> the "vanity fair" party, we didn't think he'd stop. >> he was like, al roker. i need to go to al. >> it's what he said. >> what pressure were you feeling in the moment? >> the pressure to be funny. you know what i mean? >> yeah. >> regardless of the whatever, still got to be funny. >> you got a chance to breathe now. feel relief? >> yeah. hanging out with my mother, you know. >> hello, mrs. rock. nice to meet you. >> good to see you. >> world-famous. >> will you blow off some steam? >> have a good one.
10:06 am
>> al getting in with the ladies. >> jennifer lawrence ran right to al. >> loved al, yeah. >> she loved al. >> she's been very nice to us. the one thing i think everybody was stunned at was sylvester stallone not winning supporting actor. >> though "bridge of spies" and mark rylance deserved an award. >> not taking away anything from him. >> a career of amazing performances. >> the sentiment was there for stallone. >> there were surprises. willie, as you said, i was so happy that "spotlight" won because, you know, it dealt with such an important issue. the sex abuse in the catholic church. such a great moment in journalism. we were all happy to see that. but i think a lot of people were surprised. you all had picked "revenant." willie and i picked "spotlight." it's my way of saying we picked right, willie. >> there you go.
10:07 am
the big acting awards but there was a 45 minute stretch where "mad max's" name was called a lot. if you haven't seen the movie, it's a piece of art. one other shoutout, adam mckay who won for "the big short." teams up with will ferrell. steps into the more serious stuff and wins an oscar last night. great story for adam. >> very cool. we also talked about the fashions a little bit. we gave our list of the things we liked. outfits we liked. >> yeah. >> here's my list. >> what do you got? >> margot robbie. wonderful thing. christy ti ty ti ty -- chrissy teigen. the baby inside was like, yes, mama. bring it, mama.

10:09 am
from "beauty and the beast" in the gorgeous yellow dress. >> she looked better than belle. >> when she had that oscar in her hand, too. ronan. love the color. and brie larson who won the oscar last night and won so many hearts in this award season, she is adorable. that blue was stunning on her. she really stood out in this beautiful sort of ruffles. al had another one that i loved. >> you know, there were two olivias. >> they both were hot. >> very hot. olivia munn was in stella mccartny. >> munn. >> it was gorgeous. one of the brightest colors on

10:11 am
>> at the after party at "vanity fair," ryan seacrest was hanging out and we took a picture with him, as well. >> on the other side of the partition, guys, it was chris rock and leo chatting, which was cool. >> did you hear anything? what were they talking about? >> i think they were high-fiving each other. >> they were at a distance from them. >> we were doing what everybody else does. take out their camera and pretending to take a picture of themselves but really taking a picture of leo and chris rock. >> i love that elton john doesn't have a phone. gangster move. i don't need a phone. you know where to find me. >> he gets people around him with a phone so why does he need one? >> he actually has a telegraph. >> carrier pigeons, actually. >> i like that. let's take a look and show you what we have as far as our weather is concerned. my golly, weather may affect
10:12 am
severe weather today from wichita falls to wichita. tulsa, oklahoma city in the risk of severe weather. strong wind gusts through tonight. hail. tomorrow, the area expands out. look at the states that are under slight risk of severe weather. 22 million people at risk. tornadoes. but the super tuesday states of arkansas, tennessee, alabama, georgia and virginia, all part of this. it may be an effect on voting for tomorrow's primary. y. eric: good morning. what a beautiful day. plenty of cloud cover, mostly cloudy, 78 degrees our high.
10:13 am
>> that's your latest weather. willie? >> al, thanks. coming up, more of chris rock and the controversy at the oscars. how he addressed it in his monologue and throughout the show. plus, the big moments you missed if you couldn't stay up only kraft natural cheese has a touch of philadelphia cream cheese, so whatever you make, is creamier than ever. jane' s always on the move. luckily her light & fit protein smoothie can keep up with her. packed with 12grams of protein
10:14 am
so she can watch her calories and where she' s going. light & fit feel free to enjoy. everything kids touch during cold and flu season sticks with them. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around. use clorox disinfecting products. because no one kills germs better than clorox. i'm jerry bell the second. and i'm jerry bell the third. i'm like a big bear and he's my little cub. this little guy is non-stop. he's always hanging out with his friends. you've got to be prepared to sit at the edge of your seat and be ready to get up. there's no "deep couch sitting." definitely not good for my back. this is the part i really don't like right here. (doorbell) what's that? a package! it's a swiffer wetjet. it almost feels like it's moving itself. this is kind of fun. that comes from my floor? eww! this is deep couch sitting.

10:17 am
making everyone feel comfortable. but beyond that, after that, once we got to the stretch of the actual show, it felt repetitive, long, as the oscars always feel, but also odd. there weren't very many stars accepting awards. >> it was interesting. given that the oscars were longer than -- >> crazy. >> some of the sketches that chris did, tackling the lack of diversity. here's onewhoopi goldberg and jennifer lawrence together. >> maybe they'll make a movie about a skinny white lady, but the black girl has to cure cancer before they get a tv movie. >> oh, my god. >> i'm not mad. i know how to play the game.
10:18 am
>> i'm the danish girl. these danishes is good, girl. nailed it. >> i love that. i thought it was so great. >> so funny. i think it was smart because it was the idea of inserting himself into the movies. chris rock, who was probably one of the oscar hosts we've had in the last ten years, up there with ellen degeneres, was smart to have whoopi join him, oi ah along with tracy morgan. >> let's talk about the girl scouts, who scored big last night. >> they did. >> take a look. >> i want you to buy my daughter's girl scout cookies. look at my babies up there. are you going to deny them some cookies? all right, tina fey! get that money, girl. make that money.

10:20 am
>> why did she do it? >> good question. >> leonardo dicaprio, you know, finally. >> acceptance speech, too. we'll have a look at that. >> i thank you all for this amazing award tonight. let us not take this planet for granted. i do not take tonight for granted. thank you so very much. [ applause ] >> so many nominations and finally getting his due. >> fifth nomination in acting. i think people were very excited about this. it was also a big moment because the other acting nominees -- or winners, mark rylance, brie larson and alicia vikander are smaller actors and have been in smaller performances. this was a big movie star, finally taking the oscar stage. i think people wanted leo to win. it was the most tweeted moment of the night in the history of the oscars. more than 400,000 tweets a minute for leonardo dicaprio.
10:21 am
>> sylvester stallone, were you shocked at that? >> i think the academy dropped the ball with their snubs. stallone, 40 years after being nominated for playing rocky in the original "rocky." this would be a huge comeback for him. would have been a beautiful speech. what were they thinking? >> when else does he have a chance to get an award now? hopefully there will be another role for him but -- >> this was his moment. i think a lot of viewers were looking forward to honoring sylvester stallone and excited about that. it was right in the middle of the ceremony. >> i was angry about it. lady gaga, you saw the song. >> that performance was unbelievable. >> biden introducing the song. the sex assault survivals s vivors coming on stage and paying tribute to lady gaga. how does that lose to the "james bond" anthem, which wasn't a really good song, to be honest with you? >> yeah, it's unbelievable moment there. thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. coming up, the celebrities like you've never seen them

10:24 am
as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. you may bruise more easily p and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. p xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. r get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... pask your doctor about xarelto . coming up, natalie and i painted the town red at some of hollywood's after parties.

batman show and we had an image in our minds of commissioner gordon. >> definitely not me. >> now you're the young detective gordon. >> right. >> how much of batman's history and lore did you bring to the character. >> i actually sat down with jeff johns who runs d.c. comics, just asking for help. what do i need to read? what do i need to know? he really freed me up and said, we've never seen commissioner gordon as a detective. we've never seen this part of his life. what you really need to understand is he's a warrior. he's a policeman. he's a lawman. but you should feel free to interpret this on your own. that's what i've done. i mean, he's a great character because the world that he lives in is lawless, completely amoral, really. but we're watching him descend into an unprincipled state, where he realizes he has to do whatever it takes to get things done and to get the bad guys.

it just starts aching and it starts aching like so deep within the tooth that i couldn't handle it. i started eating on like one side of my mouth, for like a whole month i was just eating on one side of my mouth and then finally i was like, i can't do this. my dentist said that i should use sensodyne. life without having to worry about what's gonna hurt my teeth, if it's gonna be too hot, or too cold, if it's gonna have ice in it. life without sensitivity is easier. done. one of the coolpperks of this place is you can eat as muchpcereal as you want. it' s like i' m going to work to get some. alrighty. we just like cereal. we make it, eat it, love it, live it.

back to baking basics with apple pie. the author of "let's eat cake" is here. >> she'll show us one of her favorite pies and perfect dough that will become your go-to recipe for any pie. good to see you. >> good morning. >> this is life changing. you know how many times i wanted to go to a party and say, i made this pie? >> you can do it. >> you'll show us. >> you are going to do it. >> i believe you. >> cold, cold, cold butter. you don't want it to melt because you want to be able to see the butter once you're done. >> all right. >> i do it in a -- i am going to do it -- >> it's all right. >> we can pretend. i pulse my dry ingredients together, which are flour, salt, sugar. >> what's the difference in pulsing and letting it go?

you get the cloud of flour and you're like, oh. cold, cold, cold butter. >> from the freezer cold? >> from the freezer cold. you don't want it the melt. the reason is, people have real trouble with pie crust because it gets tough. >> okay. >> this is what you end up with. >> people look at it and go, it doesn't look like dough yet. if it holds together when you pinch it, it's good. here's the trick, you can just pull it together here. it's holding together fine. too much water makes it tough. >> how do you know if you put too much water in? >> then add a little more flour. you want to see the pieces of butter. you want to roll it out, the bottom crust, into an 11-inch round. divide the dough in two. perfect for a double-trusted pie. >> which is my favorite. >> can i freeze it if i don't use it? >> thaw it before you roll it or

i blind bake the bottom crust so it's not soggy. i don't like soggy bottoms. >> i don't either. >> take a like size pyrex and turn the pie over so make it upside down. people have the pie that shrinks. upside down, gravity will make sure the dough doesn't sink and it'll be fer perfect. i cook the apples before i put them in the pie crust. the reason, it creates a caramel. also, you don't get the gap between the crust and the apples. it's perfect. >> all right. >> also caramely, which i like. >> we have 15 seconds left. the recipe is on today.com/food. >> can you point out how you do the top? >> instead of doing -- i just put them on top of the pie. pretend this is a pie. >> we'll be back. this is "today" on nbc.
