obnoxious, in your face. but he was an effective president. now, vietnam was a terrible situation. and he took an enormous amount of heat for that. but i do also think that he got three civil rights bills passed in a very short presidency. so i think maybe sometimes we can re-examine. and one of the things i think perhaps the show does is it does ask that question. particularly at a time when we have a lot of gridlock in our politics. what is right? you know, what is the line that someone should cross if you want to get something done? one of the things i liked about the film "lincoln" was it showed that abraham lincoln, our almost sainted president, was willing to do what he had to do to get the votes to get a more important thing passed that changed america forever than giving somebody a post in some whatever. so i do think sometimes, even in the real world as opposed to our world, i want to see things get done. that's why i could never go into politics. i would be incredibly
frustrated. >> that's what i hear from so many times from actors that play politicians. i couldn't do it. i'd walk out day one. >> unless, of course, ashleigh banfield were my first lady. then perhaps we might get things done. >> reporter: i was hoping you'd give her a little shout. because she's doing her show from here tomorrow. a little love would be nice. i'm sure she'd like it. >> happy to send some love to ashleigh. >> reporter: good luck to you. i think you look fantastic. who's the suit? >> burberry. >> she's going to pop her isv back in there. here's what happened. it's the top of the hour. welcome to the cnn newsroom. i'm kyra phillips. the golden globes, all the stars are working their way down the red carpet right now. our nischelle turner is there covering this for us live. what happened was we were going to go to her. kind of at the top of the hour. that, by the way, is the sprinkler that broke and pretty much spewed water all across the red carpet. but they got it under control.
everything is okay. apparently no dresses have been ruined. everything's fine. but nischelle has been sort of grabbing folks here and there. and so we went right to her interview with kevin spacey. she didn't have her ifb in. she didn't know we were tuned into her which is why we had a little raw moment there. nischelle, i understand you've got the ifb back in. you can hear me. we were sort of a fly on the wall watching your interview with kevin spacey. okay. she's grabbing somebody now. is she doing another interview? who does chef now? >> i mean, someone said to me, you're an impossible movie. we've proved them wrong. we made the movie. >> reporter: i read an interview with you where you said your wife is the one who introduced you to this book. where did you find -- the book has been in existence for a long time. but where did you find it and how were you introduced to soloman northrupp's work.
>> he wants to make a film about slavery, about a free man that was kidnapped. i just started to do some research. i had a bunch of books. i thought, okay. let's try this one. and, you know, when you start to read it, it's immediately one of the most incredible books you'll ever read. every page something out of the ordinary happens. it's a kind of odyssey with results you couldn't think of. i went to steve and said this is the one. this is the one. and he had a passion for it immediately. >> you're known to be a director that pushes the envelope. and that really goes there. this film goes there. did you ever have to stop and pull back and say, guys, let's take a break here because this is so tough to do? >> no. it was a family. within that sort of family, we
knew that we supported each other. we could get this done. we can make this movie. we could, you know, tell the truth about a particular painful period in history. you could only do that when you work together. when you're individuals, things work out. but when you're together, you're much stronger. with that base, we could do anything. >> reporter: do you have a thought on the fact that this year there have been so many films, so many great films made about the black experience? whether it's "12 years a slave," "mandela," "the butler." really great films this year kind of running the landscape? >> no. i don't think anyone can underestimate president barack obama's influence on the arts. you know, i think -- not just the arts. other areas, you know, within the industry and whatever. i suppose what i'm trying to say, people thought they had the authority to do that. they thought they had the authority to tell their story. it's an amazing time. >> congratulations to you.
good luck on the next project. you're making a series about the black experience in london, right? >> that's correct, yes. >> reporter: love that. i can't wait to see it. nice to meet you. thank you for getting him the book. have a good time tonight. >> okay. that's nischelle. you got to love it. this is what's going on. nischelle is basically grabbing folks from the red carpet there. publicists are bringing people up -- okay. so is she -- she's about to interview her? okay. here's the deal. we're just going to take it back to nischelle as soon as -- actually, as soon as she's ready in the interview. she's chitchatting. tell me who she has now? she's got lena dunham, creator and starter of "girls." doesn't look like she's quite ready yet. i'm looking at her there. someone's talking to her. we're going to take you back to nischelle in just a second. i'm actually watching, we've got a live camera on nischelle turner there at the golden globes. nischelle, can you hear me? >> reporter: i can hear you,

she can come over and hang with us. come on in. zooey deschanel is joining us now. her and lena. are you guys fast friends? >> as soon as i met you, we were friends. >> that's how i felt, too. >> i just love her so much. >> we've been friends since i saw her in "all the real girls" in my mind ten years ago. >> then we really became friends as soon as we met. it was like a bond that you can't break. >> i'm so happy to see you. you look stunning. >> reporter: who are you wearing? >> oscar de la renta. >> reporter: oscar de la renta and zach posen next to me. good stuff. >> i love zach. >> he was my babysitter when i was little. >> such a nice guy. >> reporter: i have to tell you also, congratulations on your nomination today. >> thank you. very strong category. one of those things where you go, dang. how did i get here? pinch, pinch. >> reporter: look over to our left, michelle dockery just joined the platform here. this is good. i love this. this is a great girl time here.

>> you were patting -- it was like, yeah, right before -- >> i shot a selfie of the two of us. one of my most treasured possessions. >> honestly a really exciting moment. >> also do you ever get people mistaking the names? >> reporter: this is young hollywood talking. >> somebody said i know a writer from your show. i was like, it's either from "girls" or from "two broke girls" but not my show. >> when my mom say the "two broke girls" ad she's like they came out with new ads for your show. i was like, nope. >> nope. >> she thought two broke was the tag line. >> we could go on all day. are you guys excited about tonight? this is the party. >> keep going, nischelle. >> we should probably -- >> i love jennifer -- i love jennifer lawrence. >> she's a dream. >> don't you think we should be friends with her. >> let's get on it. >> she does movies. she doesn't do tv. >> i think she'd be willing to

>> that's the first thing we ever did together was the one where i meet her in the show. i walk in and i'm completely passive aggressive. i'm like, ha ha, no. i'm going to say hi to who? i kept apologizing. i was like, dude, this is not the way we should start our relationship. if we have to be together for years. >> you really do do the singing in the show. >> yeah. >> reporter: who knew that you were a singer? you're like, i knew. >> no. my shower knew. my car knew. my shower knew. no. you know, we're given such great material, great music. we had t-bone burnett in the first scene. buddy miller through the first and second. they're geniuses. to have that kind of guidance when you're going down uncharted territory, it makes the whole process a lot less anxiety. >> reporter: congratulations to you. good luck on everything. the marriage. the tv show. everything. it's a good year to be hayden
you should have been born in that era. you should have been alive in that era. it fits you so well. >> i've always felt i was born in the wrong era. >> i just read an interview you did with "vanity fair." i learned something about you i did not know. you were a bona fide broadway fanatic. >> i'm a complete geek. that's what i grew up wanting to do. i was a dancer. i wanted to do broadway. that's where my love of shows came from. i learned to tell a story was through dance and song. so it's always what i return to. >> reporter: good luck to you tonight. i have to tell you i loved you in this movie. i followed your career.

commercials. covers of magazines. she's producing that show "killer women" now. this woman is on a role. she's engaged. about to start a new life. i mean, it doesn't get much better than that. looks amazing. all right. let's get to the news, shall we? there has been test after test, but still no safe water for the 300,000 frustrated west virginia residents. there was a news conference just a short time ago. the governor did stand up to the mike and say that the water test results are encouraging. but still there's concerns over the actual chemical itself and that it's still lingering. take a listen. >> most people did not know a whole lot about this particular chemical. and it's one that, you know, that we've had to do a lot of research on internally very quickly to find out what effects it may have. i think that perhaps they could have been a little bit more forthcoming to be able to offer their assistance on, you know, what, you know, problems this particular chemical could have caused. i think it would have been very
helpful. >> people are being warned now to watch for symptoms like nausea, skin airatiirritation, sneezing. 7,500 gallons of a chemical used to clean coal leaked and was discovered in the water supply on thursday. president obama is going to deliver a big speech on friday. he's dpoing to outline his plans to balance anti-terror surveillance with our privacy rights. now, last summer as you know edward snowden leaked sensitive details about the nsa's massive surveillance program. since then the president has been under tremendous pressure to make changes. erin mcpike has a preview now of the potential reforms. >> reporter: trying to end a worldwide up roar over nsa spying, president obama will unveil how he'll keep his promise to reform government surveillance programs. >> we may have to refine this further to give people more confidence. and i'm going to be working very hard on doing that. and we've got to provide more confidence to the international community. >> we can find a better balance,
end mass surveillance. >> reporter: the president has suffered months of blow back since edward snowden's revelations last summer that the nsa has been collecting personal phone records on every american. and spying on world leaders, including allies like germany's chancellor angela merkel. he's called in experts, tech company leaders. and in the past few days, key members of congress. >> there were many members of congress there from both the house and the senate who cover the ideological spectrum who urged him to throttle back the collection of meta data on a bulk level. i hope he listens. >> reporter: he's deciding whether to accept recommendations from an independent review commission that include storing personal data outside the government with a private third party, probably phone companies, and requiring the government get a judge to approve access. a public advocate to represent americans' privacy rights when those decisions get made. and that spying on foreign leaders get high-level approval. >> we have many countries with
common interests. so having a more thorough process to really look through that and don't do it just because there's an opportunity to do it. >> reporter: balancing security and privacy is a tricky political question. and critics are bound to be unsatisfied. >> we can't continue to refer to ourselves as a quote, unquote, free country when the united states government is collecting information on virtually every telephone call made in america. getting into people's e-mails. focusing on the websites that certain people are visiting. >> reporter: and when edward snowden first made some of these details known of some of the nsa programs, he was quoted in "the guardian" news as saying the greatest fear regarding the outcome for america of these disclosures is that nothing will change. however, members of congress on both sides of the aisle do want to see change. and it may require a lot of congressional approval for some of these programs. john mccain was on cnn's "state of the union" this morning. and he was calling for a select committee of members of congress
from a number of committees to do some of the work on this, kyra. >> erin, thanks so much. well, iran will start getting rid of its uranium stockpile this month. a week from tomorrow to be exact according to the u.s. state department. and confirmed by officials in iran. it's the official start date for the six-month deal with iran that was announced in love. a team from the u.n. will oversee the removal of that uranium. as part of the deal iran will see some economic sanctions eased. the white house calls it modest relief. parts of iraq this weekend are as violent and unstable as they were doing the darkest day of the war. just today, at least 22 people were killed. more than 80 wounded in several car bombings and shootings in baghdad, mosul, ramadi, fallujah. militants believed to be linked to al qaeda attacked crowded residential areas, a bus station, even an army base. the spike in fighting suddenly sprang up in early december. senator john mccain has an idea for helping calm that
sudden violence in iraq. it involves a couple of familiar names. >> by the way, we could have kept a residual force there. anybody who tells you that we could have is not telling the truth. you know, we need -- i would suggest, perhaps, sending david petraeus and ambassador crocker back over there. malaki trusts them. and try and get this thing sorted out. because it's not just iraq. when you look at iraq/syria, you are seeing an al qaeda enclave there. and that is very dangerous to american national security. >> that was senator mccain appearing with our candy crowley this morning on cnn's "state of the union." coming up, it may look pretty but a river ice jam is causing all kinds of problems. first, rosa flores. >> i'm rosa flores live in new york. the chris christie bridgegate investigation has turned up thousands of documents. oh, but that's not all. i'll tell you what the new jersey assemblyman leading the investigation is asking for in just two minutes.

do you do when mistakes happen? there's no question he admitted mistakes happened. he admitted he trusted people that lied to him. america is a forgiving people. but they're forgiving when you take ownership. you admit mistakes. you take corrective action. and that's what chris christie showed. >> the democrat legislator leading the investigation has a different point of view. he believes the actions may be criminal. >> i'm not a prosecutor. but i do think laws have been broken. clearly pat foye said that on september 13th. public resources, the bridge, the police officers, the people who move the cones all were used for a political purpose. for some type of retribution. and that violates the law. and so i think law enforcement ought to be looking at this as well to make sure that any violations of law are addressed. >> reporter: we should add the documents that have been released have not shown any link between christie and this
alleged plot. but the legislature is pushing to obtain even more documentsasg he hopes the governor would say something like, i'm going to quote here, please tell us what you'd like. we'll turn over all of those documents. the new jersey assembly will hold a special session thursday to vote on an extension of subpoena power to this investigation. meanwhile, chris christie is expected to visit florida next week to raise money for the re-election effort of governor rick scott. kyra? >> rosa, we're going to be talking a lot about this for quite a bit of time, i'm sure. thank you, rosa. >> of course. a wealthy hunter pays $350,000 for a permit to kill a rare black rhino. we first told you about this story last night. the dallas safari club says as surprising as it might sound, that last night's auction was held in the name of conservation. to actually save the threatened black rhino. the permit allows a hunter to kill one black rhino in namibia.
all of the proceeds, $350,000, will be donated to its government and will be earmarked for conservation efforts. some environmentalists say the auction is simply absurd. >> i can't say strongly enough how perverse this is to say that killing this animal is the best thing for these animals. >> the hunter who paid $350,000 for the permit has chosen to remain anonymous. in the grand scheme of travel, air disasters are pretty uncommon. even more rare, being the only person to walk away from one. the remarkable stories of sole survivors, straight ahead. aflac! aflac! got 'em. ♪ yeah, he's clean, boss. now listen to me, duck. i have an associate that met with, uh, an unfortunate accident. while he's been incapacitated, somebody's been paying him cash. now, is this your doing? aflac? now, if i met with some such accident, would aflac pay me?
