5:12 pm
states so they're actually coming from outside of the country and eight hundred thousand are produced within the united states not to question how trump would interpret tariffs to cars. only those imported into the country or cars with a german badge on them that would include all those manufactured in the united states that would change the impact of course for the driver it's been an analyst i talked to said this was not going to take the car companies out of the corner so to speak in other news interesting developments and you see them in here indeed to speak later today but definitely a year a step six on the way to governments in italy what's the view that from. from france where the european central bank is based. yes that's certainly not good news for anyone in the financial markets or for the eurozone but having said that everyone is taking it in their stride already mentioned briefly that the market is

5:16 pm
only eight and then there's the a four hundred m. atlas the military transporter has suffered years of delays cost overruns and technical problems and like the a three eighty airbus is planning to slow down production last month it wrote off one point three billion euros connected to the plane. airbus says its other successes like the updated a three twenty series aren't enough to compensate for these problems so the company's workforce will have a tense wait until they hear its plans some time after weapons day. ending of the annual people's congress in beijing china's government has pledged six and a half percent growth for this year as it continues its conversion from low cost mass production to advanced technology china's leaders also had a clear message for the u.s. at the start of the people's congress the company plans to open itself even further to world trade siamese prime minister leaking kyung said that import tariffs on

5:18 pm
a huge tragedy. and so now i don't even know what to say so negative is pretty much because i'm thinking about his wife his daughter and his irons and the story was in just a hero in florence he played fourteen times for the italian national team and also had spells of calorie and roma. he was found dead at this hotel in new d.n.a. on sunday morning the club's goalkeeper marco sports yellow was the last person to see him alive the night before a post-mortem is due to be carried out to determine the exact cause of a story's death. well now to german german soccer on sunday when this legal leader's buyer in munich were looking to bounce back in five borg after being held to a draw at home last week against her all not that the bavarians were desperate for a when they went into the game sitting on a nasser of lead at the top of the table. the best striker going into this match

a second string strikeforce who had their day in the limelight. next up hollywood's big night it was the ninetieth the annual academic academy awards excuse me the night's big winner was filmmaker guillermo del toro's the shape of water scoring for os first with its fantastical cold war love story and six months after the launch of the need to movement women look to seize the spotlight and more opportunity. i the highlight of the oscars fade away and warren beatty handed out the coveted best picture award. the shape of i it was. a second trip to the stage having earlier picked up the oscar for best director. del toro's fantasy romance porky love story between a mystery merman like creature and a mule cleaning lady was
5:21 pm
a favorite throughout the awards season it took home a golden globe and a director's guild award before grabbing for oscars for. best actor accolades went to gary oldman for his portrayal of winston churchill in the gritty world war two drama the darkest hour. old men had to endure up to five hours and makeup every day during filming to complete his transformation to britain's storied wartime leader. the best actress oscar went to frances mcdormand for her role as a grieving mother in the comedic drama three billboards outside of being missouri mcdormand use the podium to make a stand for more diversity. if i may be so honored to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight the actors
5:22 pm
marrow if you do it everybody else will come on the filmmaker the producer that's right through the city but i'm. thank you thank you thank you decided. to look around everybody in the band ladies and gentlemen because we are stories to tell and projects we need finance judging by the overwhelming support in the room many here hope the call is too loud for the hollywood studios to ignore. all right we're. now joined by did abuse film buffs roxboro who stayed up all night to follow this ceremony good to see you let's don't frighten frances mcdormand she used her acceptance speech to as a rallying cry for more women in the film industry was her message carried throughout the ceremony very much so i mean that's what i found most interesting or surprising i mean usually the last number of years the officers tried to avoid
5:23 pm
politics at all at all costs you know people who brought up politics made political points when they accepted their oscar often played off stage remember the the orchestra plays them off stage some were even booed if you just go back a few years they would be booed by making political points that was the complete opposite this year this year everybody was making political points from jimmy kimmel the the presenter all the way down and it's sort of i think that the oscars or the academy wants to maybe get ahead of things i think they've been a bit embarrassed that they've been part of the problem and i think now they're trying to be present themselves as part of the solution i could say that this is maybe the first woke oscar's wolf in the sense of being you know politically aware socially aware it really marks a change we'll see if this carries on but it definitely into market change from years past our all that takes me brings me to my next question i mean it's one thing to pay lip service to a change in the industry but has hollywood really shown a willingness to change or is it business as usual of course you have to see i mean this is all the result of the me to move it was started six months ago and what
5:24 pm
press with interest what she said intercepting speech not only getting all the women to stand who are nominated but then she will one step further and spoke to the people who are the business people in the room and saying ok you've got the money you're the ones who can finance films look at these women around you give them money make their make their projects calling for a real change and i say it's probably too early to know if this is going to be the start of real change or if they'll be backsliding later on but what i do think is a good sign is the fact that the academy is really looking to be ahead of this and you can see that just from the tone i mean if you remember the golden glow. with them there was a sense of shame almost they said everyone should wear black almost like going to a funeral to show how problematic it was the situation in hollywood has the oscars it was more celebrate torrie it was more like say we've got the message we understand jimmy kimmel who is presenting the oscars he starts off like that he start off with a me too joke which sort of suggested we get the message we want to be part of the
5:25 pm
solution i think we have that joke what we take a listen he gave the example saying men in hollywood should take the oscar statue as an example because he shows what a real man should be a cycle of oscar is the most beloved and respected man in hollywood and there's a very good reason why there's a look at. keep his hands where you can see them. never says a rude word and most importantly no penis at all. here's how clueless hollywood is about women we made a movie called what women want and it started mel gibson. so. you could definitely see there it's a different a different attitude. it is all you would celebrating itself again which is what the oscars always try to do but it is trying to say we understand the message we get it and we want to be we want to be part of a solution and not part of the problem and scott what was your highlight or highlights of the well i mean the doormen speech i mean that's the one that's going
5:26 pm
to go down in history and oscar history and it was great but i also thought it was really amazing because there was a rather a scene which was a sort of an activist moment and there are three actions actually. that ability or of all women who accused harvey weinstein of sexually assaulting them you know harvey weinstein huge hollywood producer used to be the king of the oscars and he was thanked more than god on the oscar stage for all the films they produced he was the star of the me two movement his various dozens of accusations against sexual assault these three women got on stage and presented a case for more diverse. that just that image of three women who in years past even a year ago would have been silence that they had to center stage and that they were essentially shaming the man who used to be sort of the king of hollywood i thought that was an incredibly powerful moment and i think that's also one that maybe will look back on in years to come as a yeah that was the moment that was the watershed moment of the oscars that's when things really began to change oh i'm all right very pretty was this
5:27 pm
a heavy oscars night oh no in fact it was and it was kind of it was actually quite quite upbeat both from the the films are presented i mean but also the whole feeling was more celebratory as i said you know i think last couple of years we've had a few more heavy oscars lash of course we had a disaster with a huge mistake for the oscars they had me do here they had to redo this this year everything went smoothly and people were in a bit of a party mood and i think that's going to hopefully will carry on all right we hope so too scott thank you so much always a pleasure to talk to you and thank you at home for watching us we'll be back after the top of the hour for now i'm playing hockey on behalf of the entire team here thanks for spending time with us.
