but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. these are multi-symptom. well so are these. this one is max strength and fights mucus. that one doesn't. uh...think fast! you dropped something. oh...i'll put it back on the shelf... new from mucinex fast max. the only branded cold and flu liquid gel that is max-strength and fights mucus. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this. and to keep thosew they fdarks from fading... there's woolite darks. it's free of harsh ingredients, keeping dark clothes looking like new for 30 washes so your love for dark clothes will never fade. woolite darks. yourbut the omega-3s in fish oil differ from megared krill oil. unlike fish oil, megared is easily absorbed by your body.
megared. the difference is easy to absorb. okay, that's our oscar technobeat going on there i guess. >> great. >> okay. so let's talk about the oscars, shall we? you know, "spotlight" won the big award of the night. we've seen many of the scenes. it tells a sad tale but it is a fascinating movie as we take a look at the "spotlight" trailer, you see these are some of the familiar scenes, of course, with some of the actors. and then lego decided to do their version of the "spotlight" trailer. they've done a little three-minute video showing all of the oscar nominated movies in lego and it's hilarious. including "the martian," including "the revenant." he's got the hair down on this one.
"room" and mad max fury". it took a lot of work to do all of this. >> those folks go all out. >> they're well ahead of their time. >> you know someone else who went all out. lots of people knew leonardo dicaprio was going to sweep this for his role as best actor. apparently the flippest did this. him going up to get his oscar award.walks up the stairs. he's got oscar in his eye. getting ready 0 grab it. >> not the bear again. the bear strikes in memoryium of leo and his oscar victory. luckily nothing liking that is happening. he's just at the oscar parties right now. >> let's move on. still with the theme. there were a lot of oscar related parties, of course. it's a really big night for parties. they kept with the theme you would say of this year's parties including you had the baked brie larson at this one party. >> that's bre? >> yes. the cheese, of course.
yeah. a little baked bre. then this martian hummus. what they did here was what happened here, they kind of made it seem like the land skach mars and you have a little martian there. that's how they designed their hummus right there. >> that's funny. >> the oscar so white pizza. >> we had to get that little zingner there. >> with the white cheese. no anchovies or sausages allowed in the making of that pizza. >> oh, boy. food must be a theme for the oscars because chris rock. >> kind you have brother just hosted the show the. >> i was thinking of your pizza but chris rock rocked up to mcdonald's before the big show and he actually went through the drive through. see? >> so this is his pregame this is his pregame. >> i swear i didn't have any champagne yet. you won't know that based on had broadcast. >> nice job. >> that's the news for this half hour, folks. we'll be right
this morning on "world news now," oscars edition from the thrilled winners and big moments. >> actually, i do not look like him. he happens to look rather like me. how do you think we made it this far? >> to the nominations controversy to the fashion trends and chris rock's humor. >> you realize if they nominated hosts, i wouldn't even get this job. >> from the red carpet to backstage. it's monday, february 29th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >> hey, good morning on this post oscar morning. i'm reena ninan. >> and i'm kendis gibson. it really was an amazing show. it ended up on time, chris rock was funny.
did you love the show? >> chris rock was good. he had a high bar and lived up to it. >> he did. they did take on the whole thing about oscar so white head on and later on in the show. you notice many minorities on stage. you had morgan freeman, michael b. jordan, there was a black bear. they were trying to counter all of it. so let's start with the surprise at the oscars. "spotlight" taking home the best picture award. many critics had predicted "the revenant" would take top honors. >> leonardo dicaprio did win best actor for his role in that movie and here's a look at other memorable moments from the ceremony. >> and the oscar goes to "spotlight." >> we want opportunity. we want the black actors to get the same opportunities as white actors. that's it. >> it's not rocket science. it's a mop. >> i'm a danish girl.
this danish is good, girl. i want you to reach into your millionaire pockets and i want you to buy some of my daughters' girl scout cookies. >> thanks, guys. >> you're welcome. >> all right. >> thanks, chris. >> each of you is an ambassador who can influence others in the industry. it's not enough to just listen and agree. we must take action. ♪ it won't be real, won't know how i feel ♪ >> i think if you ever wondered about acting with tom hanks, would it help, the answer is clearly yes. >> jacob tremblay, my partner through this. >> thank you to the moviegoers
thank you for going to the theaters and seeing our films. >> and the oscar goes to leonardo dicaprio. >> i do not take tonight for granted. thank you so very much. >> absolutely. what a fun, fun evening. it was a night to remember from chris rock's role as host to the shorter than usual acceptance speeches. >> yeah, and it was really you could even see the crawl at the bottom which i thought was incredible of people thanking. why haven't we done that sooner. it was pretty great. >> they only got 45 seconds to be able to do their acceptance speeches but it seemed as if most people stayed to that. they did get political, as well. many of them in their acceptance speeches. leo dicaprio did climate change, as well. >> we're going to change abc's brandi hitt who is live in hollywood. brandi, were insiders actually surprised to see "spotlight" win? >> there were a few people predicting it could win best picture. most of the critics thought "the revenant" was going to take home the top prize.
however, it really was a three-way race between "the revenant," "the big short" and "spotlight." "spotlight" actually won the screen actors guild award for best ensemble. it wasn't a huge surprise but kind of came from behind at the last minute to take it from "the revenant," reena and kendis. >> let's talk about chris rock for a minute. what's been the reaction we've been hearing about his hosting duties? >> reporter: i've been looking around on twitter. most people say he did a wonderful job. in fact, a lot of people are praising him for going after hollywood and he even called hollywood racist during the oscars telecast. bette midler calling him the biggest winner of the night. oprah winfrey giving him two thumbs up. ellen saying on twitter that was incredible talking about his monologue and john legend saying congrats on your performance, chris rock. he's one of the top talkers for the awards show. you know what the other top talker i'm finding on twitter is michael keaton. i was trying to figure out why
is everyone talking about michael keaton. obviously "spotlight" winning best picture. michael keaton's celebration as he walked up to the stage, he kind of dropped two words that i cannot say on television. and it's getting a lot of talk. a lot of smiles this morning. >> i was wondering what that was about. abc's brandi hitt explaining it all from the dolby theater. brandi in hollywood, thank you so much. >> he was pretty pumped. let's check in right now with another member of our team who spent hours on the red carpet earlier on sunday and backstage. abc's leslie messer. good morning. we have to start with what a huge win for leonardo dicaprio. >> reporter: i was so afraid of what would happen if leo didn't win. that is how badly everybody wanted him to take home best actor. and when it was announced, the entire press room erupted into applause. everyone, i mean, it was like everyone was breathing an corrective sigh of relief. >> it's pretty impressive. you can hear him right there. he made a big speech about climate change, as well.
already passionate about a lot of causes. what was it with the reaction backstage to chris rock? what are people buzzing about now? >> i think everyone was really impressed that he tackled this controversy head-on. it continued throughout the show. if he hadn't done what he did, i think he would be criticized for that. i thought he was really funny. everyone was laughing at his jokes. nothing really fell flat. i give him credit. he did a great job. >> the new york daily news not agreeing saying he went too far. he did go there. what's it like to cover the oscars? i imagine it's pretty glamorous. you're there on the red carpet. you're rubbing elbows with leo. what's it like? >> as far as work assignments go, it could get a lot worse than having to cover the oscars. it's surreal. it's something everybody grows up watching on television and to be there and see your favorite celebrities walking in looking more unbelievable than they've ever looked and then also on a
sentimental note, seeing them accomplish their dream and realizing this lifelong dream is a pretty special thing to see if >> it is a really big deal there. >> abc's leslie messer live in hollywood. our oscar coverage is just getting started. we have a special edition of the "skinny" on hollywood style later this half hour. >> one you don't want to miss. we're going to move on to our other major story that we're following this morning. of course, it is a battle for the white house. this morning donald trump on the defensive after a controversial kkk endorsement. >> his rivals couldn't wait to pounce, hurling a fury of insults. it's your voice, your vote. abc's stephanie ramos is covering the campaign. >> reporter: gop front-runner donald trump taking attacks from all sides including personal insults. >> he is a con artist. >> con artist. >> i will never stop until we keep a con man from taking over the party of reagan. >> reporter: trump responding with a series of tweets repeatedly calling marco rubio a lightweight. but getting into some trouble,
too. retweeting a quote by mussolini and refusing to disavow an endorsement from kkk grand wizard david duke during an interview on cnn's state of the union. >> i know nothing about david duke or white supremacists and so you're asking me a question that i'm supposed to be talking about people that i know nothing about. >> reporter: trump apparently forgetting he had already disavowed duke on friday. rubio pounced on the interview. >> we cannot be a party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the ku klux klan. >> a rare moment of agreement with democrats. bernie sanders tweeting this out. america's first black president cannot and will not be succeeded by a hate monger who refuses to condemn the kkk. >> good morning. >> reporter: hillary clinton retweeted sandeders' message as she celebrates her big win in the south carolina primary. >> you see, i do believe america remains great. >> reporter: stephanie ramos,

♪ time now for "the skinny." topping our headlines this morning, it's our only headline this morning. last night's oscar awards. >> recapping this year's major winners best picture honors went to "spotlight." >> best actress in a leading role went to brie larson for "room." best actress in a supporting role went to alicia vikander for "the danish girl." >> and for the guys best actor in a leading role went to leonardo dicaprio, for the revenant" and in a bit of an
upset best actor in a supporting role went to mark rylance for "bridge of spies." the most anticipated moment of the night was the start of the awards. >> the start of the award was the moment that host chris rock took the sage about the world waiting to see what he would say about the controversial lack of diversity among the nominees. >> as expected rock had plenty to say. >> this is the wildest, craziest oscars to ever host because you got all this controversy, no black nominees. you know? and people are like, chris, you should boycott. chris you should quit. you should quit. you know, how come it's only unemployed people that tell you to quit something? i'm sure there were no black nominees some of those years, say '62 or '63 and black people did not protest. why? because we had real things to protest at the time like too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won best cinematographer.
jada's going to boycott the oscars. jada boycotting 0 the oscars is like me boycotting rihanna's panties. i wasn't invited. if you want black people every year at the oscars just have black categories like best black friend. hollywood is sorority racist. it's like, we like you, rhonda. but you're not a kappa. because "rocky" takes place in a word where white athletes are as good as black athletes. so rocky's a science fiction movie. >> he did get a lot of laughs. did he get the tone right, do you think? >> there was a lynching joke and there was a rihanna underwear joke. >> yeah. >> it was quite a tone. the "new york daily news" said that he went way too far. they put him on the front page. but needed to tack it in typical chris rock style.
>> he did it his way, didn't he? >> he did. he probably won't be back next year. he did a great job. bravo. >> next to one of the most awkward moments of the evening. > when chris rock introduced stacy dash. remember her in the actress turned fox news pundit who has mocked the necessity of b.e.t. and even black history month as the academy's new director of minority outreach. >> i cannot wait to help my people out. happy black history month. thank you. >> thank you. >> oh, boy. yeah, you could tell there was a bit of awkward silence and then a bit of polite applause. but really the best reaction may have come from the weekend who really, really didn't want to laugh. but he just couldn't resist. so he did laugh. >> he didn't know what to do. neither did any of us at home. afterwards dash did take to her blog responding to her critics who charge that she's not black enough saying i'd rather be a free thinking black than a cookie cutter black who thinks and votes just like all my friends.
who knew there was such a thing as cookie cutter blacks. >> now earlier, an even more awkward moment played out on the red carpet and the internet. a beauty company tweeted they had no idea oprah was tattooed. they couldn't believe, it was kind of awkward. as you can see, that's not really oprah. the woman with the tattoos is whoopi goldberg. >> it's different? and considering there weren't a lot of people of color there total beauty knows they screwed up. they tweeted an apology to oprah, whoopi and everyone else. >> gayle king waited and had this image of a confused oprah. i love this one. reacting to the mix-up. king saying we all love whoopie but we all don't look alike. that was great. i loved it. >> love the reaction. >> i want to remind you our coverage of the oscars wouldn't be complete without discussing fashion. >> yes. we're going to get to the women later but first the guys starting with the jared leto. >> jared leto who rocked a
crimson piped tuxedo with a red flower in place of a bow tie. a carnation, to be exact. >> and next 9-year-old jacob tremblay who looked amazing. strutting his stuff. > such a cutie. >> he absolutely is in a classic tux. but what you don't see are his darth vader socks. >> oh. smart kid. wanted the force to be with him. is that the right force? no? sorry. finally our own red carpet host michael strahan in an eye-catching two-tone blue tux but apparently "gq" magazine wasn't impressed. how can you criticize his necktie? they said when it comes to black tie events there are only two options a bow tie or no tie at all. if you can pull it off, hey, michael, you can pull it off. >> michael looked absolutely amazing. now that the guys are out of the way, it is time for the real fashion to begin. >> jackson's red carpet round coming up next. he's got his take on fashion. >> he actually got all dressed up for it. it's really impressive. i might be wearing that for my
halloween party. >> will you? >> yeah. halloween party. >> will you? >> yeah. but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. these are multi-symptom. well so are these. this one is max strength and fights mucus. that one doesn't. uh...think fast! you dropped something. oh...i'll put it back on the shelf... new from mucinex fast max. the only branded cold and flu liquid gel that is max-strength and fights mucus. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this. still smell like springtime? washed 12 weeks ago and unstopables in-wash scent boosters the more you pour, the more scent you'll savor. toss it in before your clothes for luxurious scent up to 12 weeks unstopables by downy. america's best scent booster. moisture so i can get into it ao enhance mbit quicker. ral and when i know she's into it, i get into it and...

>> she looks beautiful. >> she looks stunning. > i'm going to go on the record and declare that a flowery seafoam green disaster from armani. >> no. you couldn't be further from the truth. >> we love it. >> somebody in hollywood called that good and they should be fired. >> we love this. >> oh, no. >> we disagree. >> get her out of here. who's next? sandy powell this woman is a costume designer. orange hair, aquamarine suit. she was misidentified on e's coverage. who knows what was going on here. she's a three-time oscar winner. full credit to her. if she designed that, she might never work in hollywood again. the first annual analyst best dressed award goes to naomi watts. i'll tell you what, shimmering in sapphire blue and purple from armani prive, there with her partner liev schreiber. looked absolutely fantastic. good
