6:02 am
to the east coast. we have nbc's kristen dahlgren in hard hit massachusetts with more. christin kristen, good morning. >> reporter: we are in the location where they had to rescue people overnight in the construction loaders. this morning, the national guard still standing by here because we have another high tide coming in with the threat of more major flooding. this storm is compared to the perfect storm back in 1991 because of how long it has lasted and how strong it has been. we have seven deaths between 2 and 3 million people without power and travel has just been a nightmare from the roads to the rails. amtrak restoring limited service between boston and washington this morning. thousands of flights were canceled. really a tough travel day and this is not over. we have the next high tide coming and also while the rain has stopped, we have high winds continuing through the day. we could see more trees and more

6:04 am
the day. instead of 70-to-90-mile-an-hour winds, they will be reasonable at 30-to-40 miles an hour. this is high enough to cause delays at the airport. nantucket gusting close to 50. in new york, we only have 8-mile-an-hour winds. you see we are dealing with some i ho improvements. winds gusting to 20 to 30 miles per hour and this week this whole thing will be over. >> what a mess. dylan, thank you. also this morning, a lot of questions remain after president trump announced new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. we have kelly o'donnell here the president's estate in florida. >> reporter: the president is here for a fund-raiser before heading back to washington today where he will have to smooth over international relationships with close american friends from

canada to asia to europe. the president made this international dispute sound like something quite simple when he tweeted the country the u.s. is losing billions on trade with every country it does business with. trade wars are good and easy to win. to say he would back up american and steel manufacturers with tariffs is the trade message. that is not new. the way he did this, abruptly announcing it and not telling allies or lawmakers or some within the white house has been the real surprise here. it comes at a time of particular turmoil in the white house with the departure of aide hope hicks and continued pressure on the president's son-in-law jared kushner who saw his own security clearance downgraded in the last week. and kushner remains under scrutiny with the special counsel russia investigation. a lot for the trump white house. this is a big issue if the

6:38 am
abundance of it. nine films vying for best picture in a nail biting oscar race. the shape of water, the visually ravishing fishy fairy tale leads all movies with 13 nods. christopher nolan's war epic dunkirk trailed with eight, and right behind it is three billboards outside ebbing, missouri. also competing for the big prize, get out, call me by your name, darkest hour, lady bird, phantom thread, and the post. 2018 has been dubbed the most exciting oscars race in years. that is because of best picture. what makes that category so exciting? >> in the past couple years, it's been a three-horse race. this year, it's lake a four or five-horse race. also, best picture is voted on differently than any other category. that's why you could get a surprise. >> this year's nominations already making history. >> why? >> get out's jordan peele, the first african-american nominated for best picture, best original
6:39 am
screenplay, and best director in one year. >> dee reese was the first african-american woman ever to be nominated in the best adapted screenplay category. mary j. blige, the first person ever to get nominated for acting and song writing in the same year. >> the first continue in the best directing category. >> lady bird, is that your given name? >> yes. >> why is it in quotes? >> i gave it to myself. it's given to me my be. >> including greta gerwig, only the fifth female nominated in 90 years and the first to land a nod with a direct torial debut. >> this awards season has been fascinating, the me too movement, the time's up initiative. the oscars are the biggest stage of them all. how are the stars going to use the spotlight? >> i think you'll see it come up in speeches from female winners and pale winners. i think the producers are hoping that doesn't overshadow the excitement and celebration of the moment. >> while we don't know who will walk away with the hardware, we
6:40 am
do know on sunday, moments will be made. snafus are inevitable. but hopefully, none as big as this one. >> the academy award for best picture -- >> there's a mistake. you won best picture. >> a mixup sure to play perfectly into host jimmy kimmel's hands. >> what did you do? >> come monday, what's the big story? what do the headlines read? >> whatever movie wins best picture. whichever one wins is going to be a surprise. >> a suspenseful ending perfectly scripted for hollywood. for today, nbc news, new york. >> eric davis is the managing editor of fandango. i'm excited. you're moving. you're excited too. >> i'm ready. >> this is your super bowl. unlike the real oscars where they make you wait for the best picture, let's start with it. >> i'm throwing a curve ball, i'm going with jordan peele's "get out."
6:41 am
i had so many people say this horror movie isn't best picture material. i said you're out of your mind. it's a box office juggernaut. it's ridiculously entertaining. it's a wildly, i would say, conversation starter. genre game changer. i would say it's very much best picture material. it's the definition of best picture material. if it does win, it will be the first film released in february to win since silence of the lambs. >> shape of water is the front-runner. >> 13th to be nominated for 13 oscars. 13 might be its lucky number and push it to the top. >> let's zoom in and talk about the acting categories. let's start with best actress. >> frances mcdormand. >> you said that. >> outside ebbing, missouri. >> timely performance, bold, brave woman knocking out obstacle s in unconventional ways. if somebody steals it, maybe circumstancea ronan. she would be -- with this nomination, she's the second
6:42 am
youngest three-time acting oscar nominee in the history next to jennifer lawrence who has a film out in theaters now. >> best actor, gary oldman. a lot of people are talking about gary oldman. what do you think about that? >> he's a lock. this is the kind of performance where they should have just given him the oscar six months ago. it's the first time in history if he wins that two different actors won an emmy and an oscar cyst months apart for playing the same character. john lithgow won for the crown, the emmy for playing winston churchill. >> pretty amazing when you see gary oldman versus the makeup. he looks like winston churchill. >> so fantastic. a lot of attention on best supporting acting categories. what do you think will happen here? >> i feel like this is the year of the character actor. the second, third, fourth players in a movie who are always the best part of their movie are the front-runners in these categories. allison janney for i, tonya.
6:43 am
you hate her character but you love watching her. also, in the best arter supporter, my man, sam rockwell. he's the very definition of a character actor. he's so good in everything he does, but he's never really the star. but he always stands out. this is the first oscar nomination for him. going to be his first win. i can't wait. he's my favorite of all of these acting nominees. >> your face is lighting up. >> i love him. >> best director. >> guillermo del toro for the shape of water. it's an interesting category this year. four out of the five are first-time nominees. all five wrote their own screenplays, which is very impressive. and you have jordan peele and greta gerwig, who a lot of people are rooting for, but guillermo del toro, one of the great filmmakers of our time, and a lovely man. super great, super movie nerd. i'm rooting for him. i think he's going to get it. >> so creative and beautiful to watch. >> it's going to be a movie that i think gets a lot of technical
6:44 am
stuff, production design, score, and maybe best picture, but you know, guillermo del toro is a guy that has just been around for a long time and all of his films are so inventive and beautiful and he deserves it. >> you should be his agent, my goodness. >> i should be, right? >> by the way, if "get out" wins, vegas is going to go crazy. money on eric. thank you very much. coming up, we're going to take you to a popular new york city restaurant and show you the dish that keeps bringing people back. i think we have to taste it, too. we'll meet the chefs behind the hype in a moment. first, this is "today" on nbc. m. but first this is "today" on nbc.

6:48 am
and all these kids would have peanut butter and jelly and she would have salami with roasted peppers. she wanted this normal lunch. i had a similar upbringing. >> it's that background and their most popular dish, lasagna for two which is layered and rolled, sliced and baked lie a cinnamon bun, that makes the restaurant a rock star to the nearly 1,000 tables a month that order it. >> do you guys play off each other's recipes? is one of you the boss and makes the menu or how does this work? >> for sure. i think she's really the tar behind the whole thing. i come up with ideas, but 95% of the dishes are like her doing. >> how does it make you feel when everyone is raving about a dish? >> it means a lot to us because this is why we do this, basically. is to make people happy and to share something. >> humbling is definitely the word. >> angie and scott of don angie are with us. i love having you here. good morning.

6:50 am
imported from italy. >> so you stick that on there. i notice you're leaving this little -- >> you need to leave a little bit so it holds together. it's the glue, you know. >> the glue. >> you seal it shut once you roll it up. >> after that's on, you throw in a bunch of cheese. >> we're not shy about the cheese at don angie. we put a jgenerous helping of whole milk shredded mozzarella. >> what made you do it as opposed to the traditional layers? >> we wanted to do something different and it was actually inspired by a photo of cinnamon buns that i saw. i was like, this might be good in pasta form. so here we are. >> then the meat -- oh, another layer of that. >> a second layer of the pasta. >> okay. >> pat it down. >> then a little more of the glue. >> a little more glue, more cheese? >> this layer is going to be -- >> you showed me. >> so the next layer is going to

6:52 am
>> this is the best lasagna i have ever had in my life. >> we're both almost done. >> after they showed me how to make it, i brought it home and calvin ate almost that entire dish. it's a family favorite. once you cut it, we put it in here and bake it. that's it. >> it's fun the way you're cutting it. >> one more step. we put a couple dollops of fresh cheese. it's like an italian cream cheese. >> awesome. thank you so much for showing us how it's done. having us. >> head to we are right back after the messag where's frank? it's league night!
