"new york times" reports 200,000 people celebrating their first real birthday. something to do with the 28th, i think, on the off years. some do march 1st. let's be honest, you're living in a black hole, a parallel universe, a day that doesn't really exist. >> it's so cool. we had one -- a sister and

10:03 am
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. hollywood is sorority racist. we like you, rhonda, but you're not a kappa. we want opportunity. we want the black actors to get the same opportunities --

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." right, willie. >> there you go. i'll tell you what else, none of 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,
10:07 am

helping you pursue it, is ours. t-i-a-a. everybody get golden hollywood's biggest night as everybody talking. after chris rock took on the issues of the oscars lack of racial diversity. >> here with the biggest moments everybody is talking about. if you were to describe one word overall, what were the oscars for you? >> a little odd. the opening monologue was very entertaining. chris rock did a great job of tackling oscars so white and 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.
10:17 am
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. >> hello? >> 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
10:18 am
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. tina fey. charlize theron, yes! you get him. leo, you made $30 million. come on! >> of course, they're probably all starving so like yes, give me five boxes. >> we're not allowed to eat inside. you are actually starving.
10:19 am
we kind of saw it two years ago when ellen did it a little better with the pizza. >> the stacey dash thing, what was up with that? >> the oddest thing of the night. people weren't laughing. i think it was too much of an inside joke. they were making fun of the fact that stacey dash had gone on fox news to say -- are we watching this? >> we were just listening to a little bit of it. >> we've gone on to -- they were making fun of the fact that stacey dash went on fox news saying we don't need black history month. most viewers didn't know that so it wasn't funny. >> most people in the audience didn't know it. >> a lot of people didn't know who she was. >> actress and commentator but hasn't been acting a while. >> 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.
10:20 am
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. >> wins there, too. >> 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?
10:21 am
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? moment there. thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. coming up, the celebrities like you've never seen them before, letting loose on the red carpet and at the after parties.

does the bat thing come in the sky? the baby is here? >> i thought you meant a google alert. he'd learn about the baby. >> never know these days. >> it's like a pink bottle or blue bottle that lets us know. how does it feel? >> great. little terrifying but exciting. every day i leave the house and go to work and i just say, no baby today. no baby today. wait for the weekend. let's get to the weekend. >> plan it on the weekend? >> that's the plan so i can actually, you know, be there for 24 to 48 hours. >> she might do that for you, the little girl. might look out for your shooting schedule. >> can try. >> appreciate it. >> congratulations. "gotham" returns tonight on fox. up next, think baking a pie is intimidating? yes, i do. wait until we see what we're being told is an easy recipe. caramel apple pie. i've already tried it. the question is, can we make it? we're going to find out to the couple wondering what a good deal
10:47 am
no. seriously? we'll give it a 6 for composition. scary. wow, what about just putting a fair, no haggle price on the window? not zany enough? sometimes the best deals are pretty plain to see. all new dirt snuggler! gently removes dirt while polishing the floor at the same time. why would you want this isn't cleaning and polishing is it? no, but we both know what does. pine-sol. a real clean. no gimmicks. if i was eating hot soup 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
10:48 am
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.

>> 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? >> at this point, not much, really. >> guo 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
10:52 am
>> 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 it'll be too hard. 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
10:53 am
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.
