7:02 am
working all night to find a fix for the ailing space station. >> this is mission control, houston. >> reporter: a pum. connected to the cooling system, think of it like your car radiator, failed tuesday. noncritical systems powered down to prevent dangerous overheating. >> the heat control is a very important aspect of the station. it's not just the temperature for the astronauts. so the instruments don't overheat, the electronics. and power systems don't get damaged, which could then jeopardize the whole station. >> reporter: nasa says for now, six astronauts living on the station, two americans, three russians and one japanese, are not in danger. >> it's a pretty good setup here. >> reporter: engineers have two options. a software upgrade. or if that doesn't work, a riskier, emergency spacewalk. the problem is, nasa suspended space walks in july after an astronaut nearly drowned when water mysteriously filled his helmet. >> my helmet is wet. and i'm feeling freezing. >> reporter: the space station had a similar problem a few
7:03 am
years ago. the astronaut who helped solve that crisis, now working with the team in houston, looking for answers as we speak. if a second cooling system fails, astronauts may have to evacuate. we could find out later today if a spacewalk is necessary. >> all right. john, thank you for that. >> thanks, guys. we're hearing from the infamous imposter at nelson mandela memorial service. the sign language interpreter on stage just inches from president obama was displaying the sign of equivalent gibberish. he said he was seeing angels. gio benitez here with the latest. >> reporter: so many asking how was he even there? the south african government speaking out this morning. and so is the interpreter himself. saying he's schizophrenic. this morning, a shocking confession from the man at the center of an international controversy. >> i see angels climb into the stadium. >> reporter: speaking out for the first time since his head-scratching translation of nelson mandela's memorial. the interpreter, thamsanga jantije, says, he isn't a fraud like so many have claimed.
7:04 am
but that he had a schizophrenic episode during the event. and he started hallucinating. >> sometimes, violence. sometimes i will see, like, things. like chase me. and you know, i was in a very, very, very difficult position. >> reporter: jantjie is admitting he is seeking treatment for schizophrenia. and he has been violent in the past. the revelation raising grave concerns this morning. he was front and center at the memorial, just feet away from mandela's family and 91 heads of state. but it wasn't long before people started noticing his signs didn't match the other translator on south african television. >> we applaud you and thank you for that. >> reporter: one expert who is deaf, told us through an interpreter, that he doesn't even know the sign for the name nelson mandela. >> nelson mandela -- >> this is nelson mandela,
7:05 am
because of the fact that he used to comb his hair to the side. >> reporter: jantjie insisted he attended high-profile events before. including this one, beside president zuma. >> if i have offended anyone, please, forgive me. >> reporter: and the south african government now saying this morning, it did not hire the interpreter. instead, the government says it paid the company he works for. owners of that company have disappeared. george and robin. >> thanks very much. let's go to josh with the top stories. >> we're going to begin with a blow for holiday travelers everywhere. federal regulators have shut down dozens of tour bus companies and all because of safety violations. the nationwide crackdown comes after a series of recent crashes. 52 companies in all have been shuttered. many of them well-established bus lines that have transported school bands, boy scout troops and senior citizens. we'll have a complete list on our website, goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo!

7:10 am
incident at any fraternity or sorority on this campus. we're very good about that. that's why i'm pretty surprised. >> reporter: no arrest had been made in the case. and it's unclear how many people could potentially be charged. the college, which already requires students to undergo training about the dangers of hazing, has launched an internal investigation. >> people want answers. >> so tragic. thanks, rob. we have details about that devastating airline crash in san francisco earlier this year. three passengers were killed when the south korean plane didn't make the runway. and doumtss just released show the pilots were having trouble flying without computer controls. one called it very stressful. abc's jim avila has the story. >> reporter: the ntsb calls the problem automation addiction. pilots relying too heavily on computer flight controls. >> automation must be understood and monitored by flight crews. >> reporter: in the asiana crash, the pilot inadvertently shut down the automatic throttle
7:11 am
and then inexplicably did not realize the 777 jumbo jet had lost so much speed, it would not reach the runway safely, instead plowing into the seawall and practically cartwheeling down the landing strip, killing three passengers and putting 300 others on board in danger. >> because these pilots are not trained to fly the airplane manually, they got confused. >> reporter: cockpit simulation shows the flight was approaching normally. the pilot unfamiliar with local geography asking, is that the golden gate? no sign of panic until 30 feet above the bay. suddenly, an audible warning. the plane is flying too slow. and the captain orders the junior pilot to go around, attempting to aboard the landing. but it's too late. >> the asiana accident is a huge watershed and a big wake-up call. >> reporter: nance says it could have been avoided, with one simple maneuver, manually

7:13 am
her a month to identify that person as the heisman hopeful and then, only in sketchy detail, but winston's person questioned by police say they walked in while the two were having sex. >> we walked in and she said what are you doing? she said get out. >> was there anything that she said or you saw her do that made you think that she was -- she didn't want to have sex? >> no. >> reporter: the eyewitnesses telling police, winston took the girl home a few minutes later and quickly returned. the newly-released documents shed light on the investigation that led to the state attorney decision last week not to file sexual assault charges against the quarterback. >> we do not file a charge if we do not feel we have sufficient evidence to make the charge. >> reporter: for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, new york. >> just want this one to go away. >> i think all sides do. we're going to turn to the shocking light sentence in a deadly drunk driving case. a texas teen given probation and counseling but no jail time for the crash that killed four people back? june.
7:14 am
the victims' families are stunned. and abc's reena ninan has the story. >> reporter: anger and sadness. overnight, family members reacting to a judge's surprising decision. it was an alcohol-fueled joyride that ultimately led to four people being killed. >> sheriff county 911. what is your emergency? >> there's a multicar accident in front of my house. >> reporter: and now, the 16-year-old behind the wheel, ethan couch, won't be serving a single day in jail. >> he may think he's gotten away with something. but he hasn't gotten away with anything. >> reporter: instead of the 20-year sentence texas prosecutors were hoping for, late tuesday, juvenile court judge joan boyd gave couch ten years' probation. he pleaded guilty to intoxication manslaughter. his blood alcohol level was three-times the legal limit. and he was driving almost twice the speed limit when he crashed his dad's pickup into the victims. this week, couch's defense says he suffers from affluenza.
7:15 am

7:16 am
hours. and how she got out, she says, is right out of shawshank redemption. it was the longest bathroom break of karen perrin's life. she was working late friday night and decided to make a stop in the ladies room before she went home. what happened when she tried to leave was something she never expected. >> the handle would not budge. >> reporter: she was locked in the bathroom and quickly jumped into action. jiggling the latch, kicking the door, trying any way to get attention. >> i decided i should probably try to get the attention of our security team. the security camera that's in the hallway. i began pushing paper towels under the door frame. >> reporter: but at 10:30 on a friday night, there was no one there to help. she didn't have her cell phone to call her husband. former nfl running back, loni perin. in her panic, she started executing an escape, inspired by "the shawshank redemption."
7:17 am
>> it helped me to think of something to do. >> reporter: she used a chair in the bathroom to break off the inside door handle and began using it to chisel a hole in the wall. >> i was able to break through at one point. and eventually, able to pick all around that area. and get my hand through. prayed that door handle was still intact. >> reporter: after nearly eight hours, karen was free. her arm took a beating from all of the action. and she was left with contusions on her hand. she says she's still shaken up. but hopes to someday be able to look back on the experience and smile. >> i believe that one day we will be able to laugh about this. >> i mean, what are you going to do? you're in there for eight hours. i would be chiselling away. >> proactive, very, very proactive. >> where is everybody else? >> plus, claustrophobic on top of all that. >> we're looking back at it and laughing now. >> so that's good.
7:18 am
>> i like your comment as it was playing, she could have taught him in "shawshank redemption." took 25 years in "shawshank redemption." she did it in eight hours. >> one of my top-five movies. you want to talk about the frigid weather. >> we have windchill advisories. this goes from not just uncomfortable but to dangerous. in parts of wisconsin, illinois, and indiana, and iowa this morning, look at the temperature, what it feel the like. it feels like 15 below in chicago. national falls, 13 below. 13, the feels like in new york city. and philadelphia feels like 13, too. you go, hearing about the storm for the weekend. let me time this out for you. this is important. right over chicago, look at the time. saturday morning. it's friday night into saturday morning. i think chicago itself, one to three inches. just south in indianapolis. parts of ohio, you could pick up more, three to six inches. and then you go to the east coast.
7:19 am
it matches up with the next surface low. it's going to grab some of the moisture. this is what i think happens. most of the snow falls in the mountains. a lot of us at the coast, new york, boston, d.c., going to see the numbers taper because of the heat and moisture. it's not going to be that warm. but enough to put a little rain in there.
7:20 am

taking on gender stereotypes in the workplace. showing men and women in similar roles but being perceived differently. and it is our talker today. >> i went online and watched it yesterday. wow. it really makes you think. >> definitely want to stick around for that. and oprah winfrey, she is always so honest. and now, she is talking about why she has zero regrets about not having children. >> we'll hear from her coming up. let's get right to the emotion testimony in the so-called newlywed murder trial. jordan graham accused of pushing her husband off a cliff just eight days after getting married. her mother-in-law taking the stand with dramatic testimony. abc's ryan owens has the latest from missoula, montana. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. the prosecution may rest by the end of today. they're almost done with witnesses. they got through 18 of them on wednesday, including the
7:32 am
victim's mother. from day one, this trial has been all about newlywed jordan graham. why did the young bride push her husband off that cliff? why did she lie about it? on wednesday, prosecutors shifted the focus to her husband. 25-year-old cody johnson. his mother, sherri, told the jury how excited her only child was for his wedding day. he told me it was the best day of his life. starting a family. i always wanted to be a grandma. she sobbed on the stand. and several jurors looked at jordan graham, who sat expressionless. prosecutors say eight days after that wedding, she shoved her husband off a cliff at montana's glacier national park, because she regretted getting married. his mom recounted at a memorial service for her son, she tried to comfort the woman charged with her murder. i put my arm around her and said
7:33 am
everything will be okay. she testified her daughter-in-law didn't say a word. the jury also heard from cody johnson's boss and best friend. he testified he was so worried jordan had done something to cody, he broke into the couple's house, looking for signs of foul play. cameron frederickson told us a couple months ago about his early suspicion. >> almost positive that jordan had done something or somehow or someway, was a part of what happened to cody. >> reporter: the jury also heard the voice of jordan graham, who has pleaded not guilty. and said she pushed her husband on accident, after he grabbed her arm. prosecutors played audiotapes from interviews she gave the fbi. in them, she confessed, i pushed and he went over. and then, i took off. then added, i 100% did not do that on purpose. once the prosecution rests, it's the defense's turn. and the big question for them, will jordan graham testify?
7:34 am
most people think that's unlikely, especially since the jury just heard her story in her own words. robin? >> we're going to get to that. we're going to bring in our chief abc legal affairs anchor, dan abrams. let me ask you about the testimony of the victim's mother on the stand? >> she's offering similar testimony as the other witnesses. she lying afterwards. she's not coming clean. she's not telling people, i pushed him off the cliff. the difference is, coming from his mother, it is that much more emotional. so, in terms of substance, what she's offering isn't that significant. in terms of emotion, incredibly powerful. >> puts a face to it. it really does. you heard what ryan was saying at the end of his report, about jordan graham. the jury did hear from her yesterday. do you think she'll take the stand? >> this could be the reason she doesn't take the stand. in this recorded statement, if you believe her, she didn't commit murder. she's saying, i didn't do it on
7:35 am
purpose. it was self-defense. there's inconsistencies in the account and there's problems with it, et cetera. but you could make a very good argument that a lawyer would say, i'm not going to risk putting my client on the stand. the jury's already heard from her in the form of a recorded statement. they know she's saying this is an accident. and when the prosecution has the burden of proof the way they do in this case, the defense attorney could decide it's too risky to put her on the stand at this point. >> the judge is moving this case along. >> we've heard from 31 witnesses. and the case could be done by friday. and when the defense says they have half a day of testimony, that gives you an indication that maybe they're not going to call her. we have an update on the mysterious death in the parking lot at a kansas city chiefs game this month. linsey davis has the story. >> i wake up every day with the same nightmare. >> reporter: it's not knowing what caused the death of her
7:36 am
30-year-old husband, seen here in home video, that makes it even more difficult for jennie van winkle to move on. >> completely senseless. >> reporter: kansas city investigators are still looking for answers in kyle van winkle's mysterious death last week outside arrowhead stadium, during the kansas city chiefs game. >> some of this may not be figured out. i certainly don't have the answers. >> reporter: van winkle's father, a police sergeant, was inside the stadium, while his son allegedly got into an unlocked jeep in the parking lot that resembled one that belonged to a relative. >> i was with him from start-to-finish that day at the tailgating. most everybody in our group had some kind of drinks. if i had even thought kyle was a little past where i would have thought, just totally under control, he wouldn't have went to the restroom by himself. i would have followed him and went with him. >> reporter: but van winkle never returned from the
7:37 am
bathroom. instead, police say they were called to the parking lot after the owner of a green jeep found a strange man inside his vehicle. investigators say a struggle ensued. van winkle collapsed. and the brand-new father of a 7-week-old son was pronounced dead at the hospital. >> my life, now, is a reality that i never thought i would ever have to be in. >> reporter: police have ruled van winkle's death a homicide. but no charges have been filed. they say it could be weeks before they know what killed him. linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> that is a strange one. >> it is. time, now, for the weather. ginger zee is back. >> people asking if we'll have a white christmas. >> love that snow. >> they want to know. i have some answers. we can't do that far out. but let me show you something. we have the historic probabilities of who will have a white christmas. if you're in fuchsia, you have a 90% chance. we're way ahead of ourselves

>> he is here because my book i'm going to bring home is called "kittenhood." all of these pictures from the first 12 weeks. >> the girls will love that. >> what about franklin? >> you know, he wants to get out. >> there's a dog. like, i have a sweater, too. >> this is the one i wanted to share with people. i have a video clue. "soul train" remember this? >> soul. >> "soul train." >> not bad, josh. >> the longest-running syndicated show. it was on from 1971 to 2006. and every saturday morning, i remember we had a new basketball coach. >> this is my favorite. >> a new basketball coach. he tried to have a basketball practice on saturday morning. i told her, no one's going to show up. but this is from questlove. he did this. you look at the pictures.
8:37 am
and you think of all of the great acts that got a great start there on "soul train." it's a beautiful read and book. >> a couple here. this one i really want to point out. here now in a world cup year. the u.s. national team, heading to rio, come next summer. we're also celebrating 100 years of soccer in this country. a beautiful game for a beautiful country. it's just chock full of history. and takes us back to 1950, when the u.s. men pulled a huge upset over england back then. but it captures hope solo and the great stride that u.s. women have made. been the dominant team in the world for a long, long time now. so, it's terrific for men and women. for the fans in both. and for sarina. again, the u.s. women are such wonderful role models. also, a quick one here.
8:38 am
"caught in the act." it's actors, candid snapshots. it's going to be your favorite. >> i have -- i love interior design. this is something i love. great ideas called "remix." and i thought it would be a coffee table book. but i love this. robert osbourne has written "85 years of the oscars." the only authorized book about the oscars. it is revised every five years. one thing i really love about it. not only the pictures and the memories from all of your favorites. but also, quotes from the greatest acceptance speeches of all-time. it's a fun gift and a great read. highly recommend it. >> does it come with the little fella. >> i know. franklin? >> franklin? i don't know. no. it does not come with that. that's just a prop. but love it. >> i don't blame you, franklin. i don't blame you, buddy. >> such a great idea. coffee books.
8:39 am
and i think of that "seinfeld" episode. when kramer had the coffee table book that he turned into a coffee table. >> sometimes they're that size. beautiful ideas we do every year. >> and they're just books. we're going to the e-books and going digital. there's something about having them. from oscar to golden globes. 'tis the season. we'll have your nominees when we return. >> that's a "soul train" line. >> the "soul train."

award season off to a running start in hollywood. the nominations for the 71st golden globes came in just moments ago. here with the highlights and the lowdown, jess cagle, editor of "entertainment weekly." and the new issue has the host, tina fey? >> tina fey and amy poehler are guest editors this week. they did work. and they were actually funny.
8:43 am
>> are you? >> don't buy that thing. it's fantastic. it's great. >> let's get down to the nomination. best actress in a dramatic tv series. >> they're being announced as we speak. but claire danes was not nominated for "homeland." >> she won last year. >> that was really shocking. michelle dockery from "downton abbey" nominated. julianna margulies. kerry washington. robin wright. but some of the standbys were shutout for taylor schilling, who is on "orange is the new black." if your show has the word black in it, you're in. >> comedy series, a newcomer. "brooklyn nine-nine." that was nominated. i expected "arrested development" to make a big showing for netflix. and it did not get nominated.
8:44 am
we have "the big bang theory." "girls" nominated again. "modern family." i know you're happy about that. i was disappointed that "veep" was not nominated. >> how is it not nominated? >> julia louis-dreyfus was nominated for actress. >> the series is so good. >> they learn new words. >> sure, jess. >> looking at the films now. "american hustle," "saving mr. banks." we've been talking about them on the show. we're in the comedy/drama zone. there's an incredible gray area now. >> exactly. >> from straight comedies or dramas. >> all of the potential nominees for best comedy, one of them were a comedy. we'll have them in a second. there's not one single -- among the nominees, "american hustle." that's kind of funny. "august: osage county."
8:45 am
that's not -- terrific movies. it didn't get the nod. it's on my potential list. i put it down as -- look out for it. it's kind of a comedy. we'll see how that one goes. >> who decides where it falls? >> the studios strategize. if they have a movie they feel like -- i feel we could get a nomination in the comedy category, not the drama category, they will push for that. but then, the hollywood foreign press association can sometimes say to them and say, we think this should be in the other category. >> the great thing about the golden globes, for me, it doesn't do what the oscars tries. to say best movie. it allows for two films. worthy films. especially since the academy tends to frown on comedies straight. >> exactly. i love that they honor comedies. this year, a lot of the comedies are not all that funny. >> best supporting actor in a series, miniseries or tv movie.
8:46 am
>> so far, it's not looking good for "homeland." but aaron paul for "breaking bad." i think you're going to see a lot of love for "breaking bad." >> rob lowe. he was great in that. >> "the good wife" doing well this morning. josh charles got nominated for that. and i love corey stoll in "house of cards." he's phenomenal. he might not be back. i don't know if we'll be seeing him again. but he was good in that show. >> best actor comedy tv series. >> oh, in comedy. jason bateman from "arrested development." even though the show didn't get nominated, he did. >> great straight man. >> there's nobody better. there's just nobody better. don cheadle from "house of lies." michael j. fox, no surprise there. also, andy samberg from "brooklyn nine-nine."
8:47 am
>> that's the tv side of it. we're going to delve into the movie side of the golden globe nominations, when we come back. stick around.
8:48 am
8:49 am
back, now, with the golden globe nominations for film. "american hustle" leads the golden globe nominations with seven each. jess, let's start out, jess cagle from "entertainment weekly." best picture drama. >> "12 years a slave." "american hustle" in the comedy
8:50 am
category. those are the two movies that i think are making strong showings and looking good. "12 years a slave." "captain phillips." "gravity," no surprise there. two other little movies. "philomena." judi dench, fantastic movie. and the hollywood foreign press association loves that film. they love judi dench. and also, "rush," the ron howard movie about racing is another one -- it has not gotten a lot of critics -- >> and about f-1, which is popular outside of the united states. >> yes. it's about a foreign race. the foreign press association. all makes sense. >> best picture? >> comedy, "american hustle," again. not a comedy. but glad it got nominated. joaquin phoenix, who else but
8:51 am
joaquin phoenix would fall in love with a gadget voice. like scarlett johansson. the movie was nominated. "inside llewyn davis." "nebraska," a terrific movie. and "the wolf of wall street." >> is that a comedy? we haven't seen that one. you've seen it. >> there are moments that you might find funny. but it is certainly not a straight setup, punch line comedy-comedy. >> you could say it's a very, very black comedy. >> very dark comedy. >> more nominations. best actor in a drama movie. >> sheila for "12 years of slave." idris elba, under the wire.
8:52 am
but the movie is not "mandela: walk to freedom." tom hanks, "captain phillips." i think that will go to the oscars, as well. matthew mcconaughey in "dallas buyers club." >> he was great in that. >> it was terrific. the movie did not get nominated in drama. jared leto. >> or comedy. >> that's right. i'm surprised that "dallas buyers club" did not get nominated in comedy because everything else did. and robert redford for "all is lost." >> and best actress. that lineup is stellar. >> cate blanchett, sandra bullock, judi dench, emma thompson. supporting actress, jennifer lawrence, julia roberts, sally hawkins. and no nomination for oprah in "the butler."
8:53 am
i thought she was going to get it. i wanted to see julia, oprah and jennifer lawrence. >> jennifer lawrence in "american hustle." >> she's fantastic. >> i can't believe that oprah didn't get a nod. >> she was good in this movie. >> this indicates what could happen in the oscars? >> it's a mixed bag. it's not a huge indicator. the s.a.g. awards are a better indicator. those people vote on the oscars. the hollywood foreign press does not. >> always knows. our man in the know. we'll be right b
