this is not a joke. "moonlight" has won best picture. "mo "moonlight" wins best picture after "la la land" was mistakingly announced. and coming less than a week after a similar act of vandalism in st. louis. and new details about the suspected drunk driver who crashed into a crowd in new orleans. police say he registered almost three times the legal limit on the blood alcohol test.
good morning, everyone. it's monday, february 27th. i'm alex witt alongside ayman mohyeldin and alex burgdorf. we begin with the shocking hollywood ending everyone is talking about. the epic best picture blunder. last night's academy awards, possibly the worst in oscar history, when someone gave warren beaty, the i don't thiwre for the biggest prize of the night. >> and the academy award -- for best picture -- >> come on. >> "la la land." >> right after announcing "la la land" when the camera goes to the audience, you can hear a
confused warren beatty here say, it says emma stone. the accountant that certifies the oscar votes came running on stage. and that's when this happened. >> i'm sorry, no, there's a mistake. "moonlight," you won best picture. this is not a joke. this is not a joke. i'm afraid they read the wrong thing. this is not a joke. "moonlight" has won best picture. "moonlight," best picture. >> i would like to see you get an oscar anyway. why not hand out a bunch of them? >> i am very proud to give this to my friends from "moonlight." >> i'm going to tell you what happened. i opened the envelope, and it said "emma stone."
"la la land." that is why i took such a long look at you. i wasn't trying to be funny. >> well, the hollywood audience just as shocked as everyone at home as the filmmakers of "moonlight" take the stage to claim their prize. >> very clearly, even in my dreams, this cannot be true. but to hell with dreams, i'm done with it, because this is good. oh, my goodness. and i have to say, it is true, it's not fake. we have been on the road with these guys for so long. that was so gracious, so generous of them. my love to "la la land. request ". >> i don't know what to say. i'm not sure this is real, but thank you to the academy. it is very humbling to be up here. >> so the big question, how did warren beatty get a best actress of emma stone if she already won the award? one of them explained the
process to the media saying, quote, the producers decide what the order of the awards will be. we each have a full set. i have all 24 envelopes in my briefcase, martha, his partner, has all 24 in hers. we stand on opposite sides of the stage right off-screen for the entire evening, and we each hand the respective envelope to the presenter. doesn't sound very complicated, but you have to make sure you're giving the presenter the right envelope. wow, we'll have more on winners and the moments of the night throughout the show. oh, many i goodness. with the first address to congress tomorrow, president trump will reveal budget priorities today with what a senior administration official says are spending heights for military homeland and law security saying they will be matched dollar for dollar with cuts from other agencies. the president will cut back in other areas including the state department and the environmental protection agency. according to reports, his budget outline reportedly does not reduce funding for the largest
entitlement programs including social security and medicare. as treasury secretary steve mnuchin confirmed in an interview yesterday. >> do you need to hit the entitlements sooner rather than later? >> we are not touching those now. so don't expect to see that as part of this budget, okay? we are very focused on other aspects. and that's what is very important to us. >> over the weekend the president complained that he was not getting credit for his management of the economy. in fact, he tweetd, the media has not reported the national debt my first month went down by $12 billion versus a $200 billion increase in obama's first month. though the figures are accurate, many academyieconomists say pre trump's new budget proposal will up-end the policies and require lawmakers in both parties to
insxreensdi increase spending caps on defense and domestic programs that were imposed by the 2011 budget control act. >> we are also putting in more money for our beloved military. it will be one of the greatest military build-ups in american history. no one will dare question as they have been because we are very depleted, very, very depleted, sequester, sequester. >> the white house is reportedly trying to crackdown on leaks coming out of the west wing. according to politico, sean spicer met with a dozen of his communication staffer last week to voice frustration over recent weeks. in that meeting, staffers were told to dump their phones on a table for a phone-check to prove they have nothing to hide. the irony is someone leaked the story to politico. and that news comes as president
trump's relationship with the press escalates. on friday he doubled down on his criticism of fake news. >> i want you all to know that we are fighting the fake news. it's fake. phony. fake. a few days ago, i called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are. they are the enemy of the people. because they have no sources. they just make them up when there are none. >> i'm starting to get hurt feelings here, just going to say. just hours after that speech the white house held a press gaggle but it was not open to all reporters. cnn, "the new york times," "the los angeles times" and politico were some of those barred from the briefing. the associated press and "times" were invited but declined to attend due to how the event was being handled. >> i think that we have shown an abundance of accessibility.
we brought more reporters into this process, and the idea that every time that every single person can't get their question answered or fit in a room, we've actually gone above and beyond with making ourselves, our team and our briefing room more accessible than probably any prior administration. so i think you can take that to the bank. >> in his cpac speech, president trump also spelled out his philosophy on foreign policy and american leadership in the world envisioning a more strained approach. >> in the middle east, we have spent, as of four weeks ago, $6 trillion. think of it. and by the way, the middle east is in -- i mean, it's not even close, it's in much worse shape than it was 15 years ago. if our presidents would have gone to the beach for 15 years, we would be in much better shape than we are right now. that i can tell you. global cooperation, dealing with
other countries, getting along with other countries, is good, it's very important. but there is no such thing as a global anthem. a global currency or a global flag. this is the united states of america that i'm representing. i'm not representing the globe. i'm representing your country. >> now the president's words drew this response from richard haas, head of the council on foreign relations, who tweeted the president's claim that the middle east would be better off if other presidents went to the beach is, quote, worth considering. and in the new nbc news/wall street journal poll, the president has historic disapproval in the opening days of his administration. he's the only president to begin with a net negative rating. 44% of americans approve. 48% disapprove of his job in office so far. he hasn't had a positive rating when it comes to being
straightforward. he's upside down when it comes to being knowledgeable and trustworthy, the international crisis, and only 18%lythe he has the right temperament leaving him with a 37% deficit. as you might expect, characterizing the first month in office is wildly divided along part zisan lines. 63% of americans think he's off to a great start. just 5% of democrats say think. and while 58% of the democrats say he's not up to the job, 5% of republicans agree with that. and 51% say the media coverage of the president has been too critical. one more number to look at, the president's travel ban. a fairly even split there, 44% say it's up necessary, while 45% say it is necessary. police say vandals attacked the jewish cemetery in northwest philadelphia this weekend, a week after a similar incident was reported in st. louis. police say 75 to 100 headstones
at mount caramel cemetery were discovered to have been knocked down yesterday morning. the anti-defamation league is offering $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators. this comes nearly a week after nearly 200 headstones were topple in the jewish cemetery in missouri. jewish groups around the country reported a rise in anti-semitism in recent weeks. last week alone, ten jewish community centers were evacuated due to bomb threats. 28 people were injured after a pickup truck driven by a suspected drunk driver plowed into a mardi gras parade in new orleans saturday night. 25-year-old nielsen rasutto is being held on $25,000 bond after being arrested at the scene. police say he was tested as the scene and had a blood alcohol level of .232%. victims were scattered everywhere and it was a miracle nobody was killed.
his pickup truck slammed into other vehicles before running into the crowd. >> chaos and confusion in the middle of the mardi gras celebration. >> everyone was trying to help one another, trying to get them to make sure if i was all right. something like you would sigh in a movie. >> reporter: one of new orleans's faint parades torn apart after a pickup hit several vehicles including a dump trunk. this video was recorded as the driver of the truck was taken into custody. >> it appears it was a subject highly intoxicated who struck a number of vehicles and then veered off hitting a whole bunch of innocent people. >> reporter: police say 25-year-old nielsen rasutto had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit. >> there were real human beings standing there. >> reporter: among the 28 people hurt, a 1-year-old child and a female police officer. neighbors and business owners along the parade route say it's time to increase security.
do you think it's time to close off roads to traffic during parades? >> right now is the time. this sends a clear message that this has to be done. you have a parade going on a few feet away and you have active traffic immediately ajay dondja a parade route. >> every time you have this many people gathering, you have to prepare against a terror attack. >> reporter: and as the festivities continue to build towards their spectacular conclusion on fat tuesday, three of the injured remain hospitalized. meanwhile, the suspect remains in a city jail cell. he faces a list of serious charges. ayman, back to you. all right, sara dallof, thank you for that report. >> still ahead, we'll look at the life of bill paxton. we'll look at the iconic movies

"titanic" and what you saw there "twister." his role inspired dozens of storm chasers to spell out bp on the map using gps coordinates. his final film "the circle" is scheduled to come out this april. despite his big screen success, paxton told nbc's carson daly earlier this month he considered himself a working actor. and the tributes from his fellow actors and actresses are pouring in. jaime lee curtis tweets a picture of herself and paxton in "true lives" saying he was a loving human. and tom hanks wrote, bill paxton was simply a wonderful man. a wonderful man. he leaves behind two children and his wife louise. bill paxton sadly died at the age of 61. and joseph walker became an icon on television as the original judge on "the people's court." he was wounded in the pacific
and served for two decades in california courts and presided over the divorce of jack cook. on the show that made him an institution, he was known for his fairness and decisions. in a "washington post" poll from 1989, get this, it found that while more than 60% of the americans couldn't name a supreme court justice, 54% of americans could definitely name judge wapner. he died at home in los angeles at the age of 97. now we'll check on the weather with nbc meteorologist bill karins. today is looking pretty quiet today. >> it's not bad today. we have had a lot of thunderstorm outbreaks for this month of february and it will continue. in northern mississippi, this is not severe weather, just a soaking rain. that's going to slide to nashville this morning. so we're kind of quiet today. if we get any isolated severe storms, maybe southern mississippi and southern portions of alabama late tonight in arkansas and missouri. but once we get to tuesday
afternoon, all the ingredients are. there we have the cold air moving in behind, we have arm airstreaming up ahead with a lot of moisture. the severe weather outbreak is likely. 25 million people are under the slight risk of areas of yellow and orange. that's the enhanced risk. and the greatest chance for any tornadoes would be tomorrow during the early evening. that's areas in orange especially. so we'll watch you closely, little rock through the ozarks, and just north of memphis, maybe south of st. louis. this area will be a concern. then the storms will come and form a straight line. then we'll worry about a lot of wind damage going throughout tuesday night right into wednesday. we'll blow the storms all the way to the east coast. that's why we have 62 million people under the threat of severe storms from early wednesday morning right through the day on wednesday. we'll probably track these storms during the afternoon off the coast of north carolina. but even washington, d.c. and philadelphia, has we go through the first day of march, it will come in like a lion with a chance of severe storms. i don't think too many tornadoes on wednesday. the tornado threat is primarily tuesday afternoon and early evening. so today, i mean, it's briefly
cooled off in the great lakes and the northeast, but today the warmth returns. 53 in chicago. 53 in boston. so we're still very warm everywhere east of the rockies where they are still dealing with a bit of bad weather. so it looks like the old saying, march comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, definitely going to come in with a lion with severe weather. >> i'm just glad the storm that overtook you last week is over. >> my vacation to flewville, don't do that one. welcome back. still ahead, a crash-filled day at the daytona 500 including one major accident involving 17 cars. >> but you know what they say, rubbing is racing. in the end, kurt busch chalks up a big first. sports is coming up next. so beautiful. what shall we call you? tom! name it tom! studies show that toms have the highest average earning potential over their professional lifetime. see? uh, it's a girl. congratulations! two of my girls are toms. i work for ally, finances are my thing. you know, i'm gonna go give birth real quick and then we'll talk, ok? nice baby.
