clearly written for what category they were for and all the presenters had to check every envelope to make sure it was the right one. those employees who were involved last year were not invited back this time around. and those who were back and involved this year were not allowed to take photos, to be on social media durring the show because the producers were trying to avoid any potential distraction. >> they figured out a system that worked for them. and kobe bryant finally made something of himself. >> reporter: he's an underachiever. producing best animated short film for producing "dear basketball." he said winning an oscar was even better than winning a championship. >> i'm sure his teammates will appreciate that comment.

to buy political influence and jared kushner's name is coming up again. we have more. >> reporter: the special counsel is reportedly expanding his investigation to include possible influence, not from russia but from the middle east. the new york times reports bob mueller is focussed on this man, george nader, a lebanese-american businessman with close ties to the united arab emirates who had frequent meetings at the white house last year. and met with steve bannon and jared kushner. kushner has faced a barrage of recent headlines, raising questions about possible conflicts of interest with his family company. kushner denies any conflict, but his complicated finances may well have something to do with his failure to obtain a security clearance. while the president remains fiercely loyal to kushner --
>> jared's done an outstanding job. i think he's been treated unfairly. >> reporter: all those headlines seem to be taking a toll. gridiron dinner, trump joked he was sorry he was late, but kushner had trouble getting through security. he also cracked jokes saying he offered jeff sessions a ride to the dinner but that sessions recused himself. >> i don't think it would be good for the president for attorney general sessions to leave but i also think the president has made up his mind in regard to how he feels about the recusal. he feels like that was the first sin, the original sin. >> reporter: on monday, the president is expected to sit down with israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, and later this week, we're expecting more details about the president's announcement on new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. lots of concern about a possible trade war. david wright, abc news, the white house. >> so many developments there.

and they definitely took some precautions to make sure the mix up like that didn't happen again. next many of the stars headed to the governor's ball where the menu included caviar dusted with 24 karat gold. live tonight in hollywood, marcy gonzalez, abc news. back to you. >> of course it's dusted in -- >> you can't have caviar without gold. >> yeah. >> i mean, everybody knows that. >> does that taste good? >> i have no idea. not a clue. >> thanks to marcy there in hollywood. our coverage does continue now. the oscars took on a bold tone with a call for change, met with cheers and standing ovation. >> leslie messer was backstage for the entire ceremony. she joins us on the phone from behind the scenes. good morning to you, leslie. what did you think this year? >> reporter: there weren't any surprises this year and i guess that's a good thing. because i have to admit when they announced the best picture
winner, i kind of hesitated. i was waiting for something to happen. but i wasn't surprised by any of the winners. i was struck by how gracious everybody was back stage. it was a celebratory night for everybody we saw. >> leslie, after francis mcdormand's speech, google is busy anszing what is an inclusion writer. can you explain that? >> it is a mandate in a contract that basically stipulates there needs to be diversity with the cast and crew. and actually back stage frances mcdormand said she's been in this business for decades and only learned about this last week. i think we'll see more advocating for this kind of clause be in their contract. >> what kind of impact can this have on hollywood going forward? >> there's been such an outcry for more diversity and better representation on screen and behind the scenes.
and i think when more people are speaking out in support of change, that means that we're going to see it. you saw some of hollywood's biggest stars on national television tonight advocating for more diversity and i think with every year we'll see a little bit more of that come to pass. >> it is some of hollywood's biggest stars but not sure they're the biggest stars in this country itself. and "the shape of water" is a movie they were saying there are more people who will climb mt. everest this year than will have seen that movie. they didn't necessarily go for a popular movie at all. >> no. this was a strange year in that way. there wasn't that sort of, last year we saw with "la la land." it was a big hollywood movie with big hollywood stars and if you haven't seen, you've at least heard about it. this was an art house year. a lot of small budget films being celebrated. i mean, even a movie like "get
out" with such a huge impact was made in 23 days or something like that. these are small films we're seeing celebrated in a really big way. >> made over 23 days and a budget of 4 million and "call me by your name" made $13 million, the lowest for any best picture nominee. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thanks. and our oscar coverage continues later this half hour and throughout the morning. so keep it here. >> we're going to turn to the russia investigation. reportedly expanding to include possible influence meddling from the middle east. >> "the new york times" says special counsel, robert mueller is trying to figure out if they attempted to buy political influence. sources tell the paper, mueller is focusing on george nade, a
lebanese-american businessman with close ties to the uae. he was a frequent white house visitor and met with the president's son-in-law, jared kushner. the president is so far with standing fierce criticism to slap big tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. the british prime minister said she expressed her deep concerns in a phone call with president trump. the formal announcement of the tariffs is expected this week. advisers say it will not include exemptions for any country. in a late-night tweet the president said sorry, it's time for a change. more severe weather is on the way. before damage from the last storm is cleaned up, the northern plains are getting blizzard conditions right now. that will stall tonight and restrengthen as it reaches the northeast. it will arrive before all power is restored along the coast. kenneth has more. >> reporter: the northeast a mangled mess of toppled trees blocked roads and complete darkness. more than 2 million people lost power.
hundreds of thousands desperate to get back on the grid before the next storm hits. >> i've never seen it this bad and as i said i've been here for 50 years. >> reporter: officers in western new jersey are warning residents to be aware of live wires like this one. people in wayne county, pennsylvania told it could be days before the lights are turns back on. in fairfax county, virginia, scott was sleeping friday morning when he heard the wind, and then the crash. >> the whole roof came on top of me. >> reporter: this red oak, sliced through his bedroom wall. roland pinned but alive. >> if that's not a miracle, i don't know what is. >> reporter: falling trees blamed for at least nine deaths. but massachusetts feeling the brunt of the storm. more than half a dozen water front homes in the community of sandwich, damaged. this house's foundation ripped up by the surf. parts of cape cod's board walk gone.
these destructive waves left behind piles of rocks and rubble. amtrak is back up and running. airports are moving planes in and out but with delays. here in virginia, this giant tree behind me, uprooted and nearly split this house in half. the bedroom, thankfully empty. the priority for crews, remove fallen trees and get the damaged homes covered before the next storm comes in. >> you have the nor'easter midweek, then there's talk of another nor'easter come monday that people are talking about. coming up could we have extra terrestrials among us? that's what alien hunters claim. did they find an alien crash site on earth? >> and in the os tar skinny, nicole kidman stuns a bus full of tourists. >> that's hilarious. >> tim is with us. jack is hanging out as well. >> jacks in the house at the bar. >> cheers.

she wore it on "snl" there and again tonight on stage at the academy awards. >> good for her. i love that. >> isn't that amazing? >> she said she was going to squeeze every cent out of it. >> good for her. you know what? good to her for squeezing life into her feet. i tell you, wearing these things is a little torturous and i fully support the shoes off movement. >> the funny thing is she took those off my feet. >> we've seen you run in high heels before. so you've got the practice. and there was another repurposed dress that people were talking about. >> that is right. that belonged to rita morano. she won the best supporting actress in 1962 for "west side story." and she wore the dress again tonight. she sure knows how to make an entrance. >> it's that kind of subtle dress people won't remember that you've worn before. >> like a little black dress. she slayed in this thing. it's the same dress she wore in 1962 and if i can wear a dress 50 years -- or a suit in my
