7:04 am
than a dozen people got five of the six power balance numbers right so they win $1 million. as we go back to work at the 7 a.m. hour, many will be looking to their colleagues to see if anybody called in sick to start won. >> $4. i won $4. i'm very, very proud. >> let turn to politics now and the presidential race. the top republican candidates square off in their first debate of 2016 tonight. and the stakes are pretty high with the iowa caulk uses only 18 days away. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is in north charleston, south carolina. peter, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you. this is the sixth republican debate and perhaps more importantly it's the second to last before that first nominating contest in iowa. donald trump and ted cruz have increased their biting attacks on one another on the trail. will that continue on the stage tonight or will they shy away?
7:05 am
faces new questions about his finances. >> he's been really, really nice, other than the last couple of days getting a little testy. >> reporter: donald trump still on cruz control. turning to "born in the usa," to taunt ted cruz born in canada. >> they attack. i attack back. >> he may shift in his new rallies to playing "new york new york" because you know, he comes from new york and embodies new york values. >> reporter: now reports say cruz improperly failed to disclose a loan up $500,000. cruz dismissing that as a matter of semantics. >> it is is an inadvertent
7:06 am
the fact of the underlying matter had been disclosed for many, many years. our finances are not complicated. >> reporter: heading into tonight the divide between the establishment and outsiders is escalating with trump responding to the republican response to president obama. >> it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. >> reporter: south carolina governor nikki haley calling out trump as angry. >> i am. i'm very angry because i hate what's happening to our country. i am angry. >> jeb bush saying he misjudged the intensity, calling it much different from previous elections. but no debate over the top target, hillary clinton. even as her husband, talking about what it takes to be president, accidentally put his wife in the oval office. >> one of the things that i'm
7:07 am
president, she did all that. >> trump is really succeeded by channelling american voter anger. you wouldn't want to be on the wrong end of that anger as evidence of the position that trump put -- whoever the hell brought this mic system, don't [ bleep ] to put it in, i tell you. no, this mic is terrible. stupid mic keeps popping. up hair that, george? don't pay 'em! >> not entirely sure who george is but whoever the george is at the fox business event is tonight, you better believe he's checking the mics twice. >> mark halperin, good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> a lot of people are wondering whether this ted cruz sorry is a big deal. first let's play a little of
7:08 am
trump. >> i hear it's a big thing. i know nothing about it. i think he's a nice guy and i hope he gets it solved. he's been really up until the last few days and the reason is i'm doing very well and i can understand it but he's been very, very nice to me, respectful, my whole being, he's been really terrific. i just hope that's not a big problem for him. >> ted cruz has already admitted he didn't properly file some paperwork with the federal election commission. that is one issue. isn't the bigger issue, though, a bit of hypocrisy? here's a guy running as a darling of the tea party, railing against wall street and the big banks and yet what people didn't know is that he had gone to one of those big banks, goldman sachs, where his wife worked, to get a personal loan? >> matt, nothing matters more in presidential politics than defining yourself for the voters on your own terms. ted cruz is just being introduced to the american public. donald trump has been in the
7:09 am
for a lot of voters making up their minds, just tuning in, if one of the first things they learn about ted cruz is he has a financial relationship with goldman sachs, there's no worst brand name going into the populist than that. ted cruz is going to be tested now going into the debate. >> we know that cruz has somewhat drafted behind trump for most of this campaign. do you think the debate is all going to come to a head? the gloves are off? or are they going to play mr. nice guy? >> last night donald trump you saw in that clip in the interview was pretty restrained ins this goldman sachs story. i don't think that rules out he'll be amped up more on it if it comes up. so donald trump despite cruz turning his sights a little bit on donald trump, donald trump is holding back. he will wait to see tonight what ted cruz's posture is. there's no doubt those two guys, first and second in iowa, first
7:10 am
polls, those two guys are going to be at the heart of the debate this evening while people like jeb bush, chris christie, marco rubio, john kasich try to insert themselves into the story line to make it a three-person race. >> in setting his sights on donald trump, ted cruz is using what sounds like a funny line, a punch line butch, but it's not meant to be one. he's calling donald trump a new yorker. he doesn't mean it in a good way because he's playing to an audience in a certain region of the country, right? >> that's right. donald trump, the one thing he was pretty defiant on is this notion of new york values being a negative thing. donald trump invoked 9/11 and said if you want to criticize new york, ted cruz, you got to come through me. that discussion about who is more elite, who is more new york, that could be a fight. ted cruz went to princeton and harvard. he's got northeastern ties as well.
7:11 am
guys, particularly defining cruz, who remains undefined for some voters, that is at the heart of the fight. >> let talk about the democrats. perhaps unexpectedly we have a real race going on between sanders and clinton. do you think it possible that she loses the first two states and then goes on to the nomination? or would that be a crushing blow? >> she could still be the nominee if she loses iowa and new hampshire, savannah. as you know, the world will be a different place. bernie sanders now neck and neck in iowa according to our new iowa poll. sanders has the lead in new hampshire. he has the momentum. she's going to have to fight her way back. she's doing a lot of television interviews. she's out there. but sanders is showing sure footing. this contest in the democratic side, which has been overshadowed by donald trump and all the attention he gets is going to be front and center. we're headed for 18 days or so
7:12 am
for both the democrats and the republicans. >> mark halperin, always good to talk to you. >> in indonesia, several attacks carried out including at one of the starbucks and isis is reportedly behind the violence. kelly cobiella, bring us up to date. >> isis mass officially claimed responsibility now saying isis soldiers carried out this attack. jakarta's police chief said an indonesian isis fighter had been planning it for a while, a paris-style attack in the heart of the capital, gunmen lobbing grenades and shooting into the crowd. for hours this morning downtown jakarta's shopping district was a battlefield with at least two explosions, this one outside the starbucks. and bullets flying between police and five gunmen. it started at 10:00 in the
7:13 am
to work. security cameras showing morning crowds scattering in fear. this close to the presidential palace, the u.s. embassy and the united nations. >> as i got out of the car with my colleagues, the second bomb went off, which was another suicide bomb. guns, grenades, and suicide belts. the blast at the starbucks shattered school windows but the company said only one customer was injured and all of its employees were safe. it been 13 years since indonesia's deadliest terror attack, a bombing that killed more than 200 in bali. at least seven are dead this morning, including some of the gunmen and isis is claiming responsibility, saying the targets were foreigners and the security services who protect them. indonesian police say some of the attackers had returned from syria and this morning they say all five are dead, along with
7:14 am
some critically. many u.s., says americans are not among the victims, but they are also warning u.s. citizens in jakarta to stay away from busy places like malls and restaurants. savannah, they say more attacks are possible. >> kelly, cobiella, thank you. >> we want to show you video that aired on iran state video this morning at the moment those u.s. sailors were captured in the persian gulf. it showed the ten who have been released on their knees, hands clasped behind their heads, surrounded by armed iranian military. later the video shows the sailors in confinement when one of the sailors apologized. >> it was a mistake that was our fault and we apologize for our mistake.
7:15 am
while we were here and we thank you very much for your assistance. >> officials are calling that video propaganda. >> this morning investors got fairly good news on the job market. the labor department reporting that applications for unemployment benefits increased by just 4,000 last week. that is near historic lows and a sign that the job market remains strong. >> let the debates begin, not those debates, the oscar nominations were unveiled in beverly hills this morning and, as always, there is some controversy over the picks. nbc's joe fryar is out in los angeles. good morning. >> good morning. eight movies are up for best picture. "the revenant" lead the pack in a very competitive awards season. this year ears's nominations bring a few surprises and a lot of star power.

8:56 am
it's gotten better and better. you know, we got best picture, as well. just the best thing, brilliant. >> what i love about the film is you said, it wasn't maybe big hollywood production, but it is the story that pretty much everybody has, i think, at least if they are an immigrant family. for you, it was something you really wanted to play, a truly irish role, right? >> yeah. it was really, really important for me to find the right irish role to play. i'm so proud of where i come from and, you know, it was important that the first irish role i played capture edd the lifestyle i had growing up. but even what you were saying about it being a story of immigration, like basically, it's a story of anyone. even if you moved down the road,
8:57 am
house, you're going to college or something like that, like everyone -- it's just that feeling of knowing that you can't go back to where you came from. i realized that at the time, but to know that's how universal it was going to be. it's one of these beautiful little magic opportunities given. >> it truly is. i love it. it's a great movie. >> congratulations. thank you so much. >> congrats. the three women we spoke to all have something in common, besides having won oscars. i think we walked away from interviewing them saying, isn't she great? charming, humble and sweet people. >> and that accent. >> she has the best story. connected to queens. >> the bronx, i think. >> quickly, you mentioned it, sylvester stallone, best supporting actor for "creed." >> the cheers erupted in the
