>> wednesday night. $1.3 billion. >> insane. and what is crazy is millions and millions of tickets sold, right? no inning with com pin nation. you could win if you just had the powerball, four bucks could be yours. so there is that. so powerball is our top story this morning. no one wake up a winner, but the lotto dreams are only getting bigger as in bigger with a big old capital b. kerry sanders joining us from the sunshine state with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. last night's drawing now entered world record territory. there is so much money here that we're talking about $1.3 billion, leading up to wednesday's draw. proof that nobody ever expected a jackpot this big, look at the billboard sign over me, it doesn't have enough spaces for the amount of hone we're talking about. so to help you out, here we go. we're talking about
1.300,000,000. yikes. >> tonight's jackpot has claimed up to a record-breaking estimated $949.8 million. your winning power ball number is lucky 13 tonight. >> reporter: turns out these weren't the lucky numbers for the millions who played an estimated 75% of all possible combinations on that record jackpot. again, no grand prize winner. meaning power ball fever just got even hotter. after building for two months, now wednesday's jackpot will be at least $1.3 billion. that's billion with a b. >> i think that's more than i could stand probably. >> a dream. >> reporter: it's a dream that liv lives on for at least another three day after a ticket-buying
fr frenzy. millions of tickets being sold every hour. >> to you want to buy a lottery ticket? all right what does a billion buy? you could get 4,000 rolls-royces to take 9 million friends to disney world and feed them 250 million cups of starbucks coffee. but it seems americans are a generous bunch. >> give some to charity, help family members. >> my church. >> share it with a lot of people. >> reporter: and the other big dream many people had -- >> won't have to work anymore. >> reporter: so how much is $1.3 billion? you have your kid or your -- like your son or daughter sitting next to you or erica, if you want to have jeff do this, and they start counting and they count for every second, they will reach 1.3 billion in slightly more than 41 years. >> that's a lot of money.
a good sunday activity with the kids. >> that will keep them busy. >> let's get to the chair of the powerball game joining us from austin. gary, good morning in what i assume was a late night for you about. >> good morning. we are a little bleary eyed this morning, but we're very excited about that $1.3 billion jackpot available for next wednesday. things are just exploding. >> what is astonishing to me and all of us here is that 75% of the possible powerball combinations were chosen as of last night, so in a way it's shocking that in one actually got it, so the powerball has defied the weird odds of the powerball. >> we were as surprised as everybody else, but that shows the total randomness. it just takes one ticket to win. at our peak last night, we were selling more than $1.2 million in power ball tickets every
single minute. that shows how much excitement is out there for this incredible jackpot. >> it is crazy to think about. i know you said it's unexpected for you, too, but in some ways you did set yourself up for this once you added more numbers in october and then made it harder to win. but did you ever think you'd get to a billion dollar jackpot? >> of course not. we made those changes in october in response to our players. our players have shown that they want exciting jackpots. so we made the odds of winning the top prize a little bit longer. but right out of the gate when we made that change, we had a winner within tennessee just a month after the change was made. so hiere we are you now with $13
billion on the line for wednesday night. and cash value, $806 million in cash. >> that's nothing before taxes. give me a break. >> gary, thank you. turning now to some stunning news that broke overnight. word that actor sean penn interviewed the world's most wanted drug lord, el chapo, while he was on the run. the encounter released by "rolling stone" magazine. gabe gutierrez is at the prison where el chapo is once again behind bars. good morning. >> erica, good morning. it's the saga of el chapo. this is believed to be el chapo's first public interview in decades. sean penn claims he spoke to joaquin guzman months ago. >> reporter: the stunning interview with the world's most wanted drug lord posted online overnight by "rolling stone" magazine.
guzman responding to questions submitted by sean penn and a mexican soap opera star. the actors say they secretly met with the drug kingpin following his escape from a maximum prison last july. guzman admitted that drugs destroy but, unfortunately, where he grew up, there was no other way to survive. he says all he does is defend himself, nothing more. the videos were taken by his associates after an hour's long face-to-face meeting with the actors at an undisclosed location in mexico. penn said this photo was taken to authenticate the meeting. i supply more heroin, methamphetamine than anyone in the world, el chapo was quoted as saying. this raised concern because the authorities were in the process of trying to find el chapo.
el chapo and his security team escaped, having been alerted by local residents. we're told the delay may have cost them the element of surprise. we reached out to sean penn, but he was unavailable for comment. it wasn't until friday morning that the mexican navy captured el chapo, following a bloody shootout in his home state of sinaloa. this is where guzman tried to make a last-ditch effort to escape. authorities are trying to extradite guzman to face charges in the u.s. the process could take months. >> guzman is going to be fighting extradition with every resource he possibly has. >> as for the piece written by sean penn, it was agreed beforehand that the final piece
would be submitted to the subject before publication. "rolling stone" said el chapo made no changes. >> there were questions about whether or not this interview and sean penn may have helped find him or hurt the search. what is the thinking this morning? it did, in fact, delay things? >> well, the short answer is right now, erica, that we don't know. we're hearing conflicting information. a trusted source tells nbc news that penn's involvement may have delayed el chapo's arrest back in october. but the mexican attorney general says it was el chapo's desire to make a movie about himself and his interaction with producers and actors that was among the leads that eventually led to his arrest. we were not able to reach sean penn for comment overnight. >> thank you, gabe. the cold snap gripping the country, but not stopping the nfl.
the vikings and seahawks will have to bring the heat as they face off in what is expected to be one of the coldest playoff games in nfl history. we sent dylan there. we apologize. >> i appreciate the apology. this is all part of what i have going. it is 8 degrees below zero, one of the coldest games in nfl playoff history. could be one of the top five coldest games in the playoffs. it'll be nowhere near the 1967 ice bowl, when it was 15 degrees below zero. but we should be around zero at game time. that'll be the coldest game the seahawks ever played. if it's below zero at kickoff, it'll be the second coldest game the seahawks played. i made a mistake of pointing out an article that vaseline is the trick to staying warm.
you have to show off the guns when you're here on the field. especially during playoff football. how do you do it? lather up with vaseline. it blocks the wind and keeps you warmer. i'm going to say this is a load of crud because it's freezing out here. although there are some hot packs everywhere. thanks to deb weber and our wardrobe department, i have hot packs all over. it's about keeping your core warm. as for the arms, yeah, not so much. >> dylan, how about those guns? >> can we see the guns again? tickets to the gun show. >> it's the vaseline. >> not so, dylan. >> makes them look bigger than they are. go ahead. >> go ahead, dylan. >> i was going to tell you how cold it is across the rest of the midwest. we have wind chill temperatures dropping into the below zero range. we'll see the wind chills around 20 to 25 degrees below zero in areas.
it's going to be extremely cold, the coldest we've seen so far this season. we are looking for a high today in minneapolis of about 2. it should warm up nicely through the afternoon. that'll get the tailgaters warmer later on today. this cold air is coming your way. i've got the vaseline, although i threw it over my shoulder. i have you covered, guys. >> you should know, too, everybody is looking out for you in the studio. sally brought you down your mug of tea, so it's here when you get back. >> thank you. keep it warm for me. >> get on a jacket, dylan. cover up the guns. coverage of the vikings and seahawks matchup begins at noon, here on nbc. meanwhile, a wild day of nfl playoff action on saturday. the pittsburgh steelers jumped to a 15-0 lead. this incredible catch by martavis bryant, pinning the ball to the back of his leg. the bengals battled back for the lead. with time running out, late
penalties against the bengals put them into field goal range with seconds left. this kick right here clinched the steelers win, 18-16. chiefs and the texans. the chiefs dominated from the opening kickoff. running it back 106 for a touchdown, as they defeated the texans in a blowout. turning to politics. the iowa caucuses are fast approaching. all eyes on donald trump as he escalates his attack on senator ted cruz. chuck todd is moderator of "meet the press" and joins us. good morning. >> good morning, erica. >> i know you sat down with donald trump and asked him specifically about what would happen, should he not win the iowa caucuses. let's take a quick listen. >> i'm not leaving, no. i'm not leaving. you and i had this discussion about two months ago. i started talking about, well, maybe here or there.
if this happened -- >> there's no maybes anymore. >> i'm not leaving. >> you're going straight to the convention. >> going all the way. if i don't win, i don't win. >> he's in it for the long haul. if he doesn't win iowa, how much of a blow is that to his campaign? how does it change his strategy moving forward? >> it complicates it. his strategy now, he does very well with a certain group of voters. he and ted cruz share some of those voters. particularlyas the primary turns south, end of february, beginning of march, if he can beat cruz in iowa, they get him out of the way, and they think they'll have clear sailing in the conservative, anti-establishment lane. if cruz wins iowa, the two of them could be fighting it out all the way to the convention. the biggest takeaway from my interview, erica, is trump is absolutely focused on trying to engage cruz now.
trying to defeat cruz now. it's why he's bringing up citizenship. he knocked him on immigration. knocked him on renewable fuel issues in iowa. he absolutely had an agenda to try to go after cruz in this interview. >> speaking of donald trump, he has been the most outspoken about bill clinton's past indiscretions, but even bernie sanders and other candidates. they're trying to knock off bill clinton from the trail for hillary. will it work? >> the way that the clinton campaign acted this week, yes. they seem reactive, they're muted. two weeks ago, they loved the idea of being able to have this one-on-one with trump. they thought the contrast was great. then this happened and they were spooked. i think they're very nervous about this, jeff. >> so much to watch. chuck todd, thanks again and we'll catch you later on "meet the press." when you tune in for that, you'll see chuck's interview with donald trump. stay with nbc as the "today" show broadcasts from the white house on tuesday, ahead of
president obama's final state of the union address. matt will sit down with the president himself. savannah will interview vice president biden. the woman nabbed in georgia is believed to be behind a string of robberies in the southeast. stealing millions of dollars worth of diamonds from jewelry stores. her face was caught on surveillance videos in five states. abigail, her crime spree in april, robbing a store also last week before being arrested. they believe she may be a part of a larger crime ring. we'll check back in with dylan for a broader look of the weather. >> the jacket is back on. it's absolutely freezing here. and this cold air is ureventual making its way into the northeast. so the record

"carol" has five nominations. when it comes to best drama, many feel the spotlight is on "spotlight," a film about journalists uncovering the catholic abuse scandal. >> "mad max" could win. it is a very, very tight race. >> reporter: in the dramatic acting category, leonardo dicaprio was a favorite to win
for his role in the "revenant." while young stars, larson and ronan are dueling for lead actress. >> i love my job. >> you hate your job. >> i love my job. >> reporter: on the comedy side, experts predict a race between "the big short" and "the martian." matt damon could win his first golden globe for acting. while amy schumer faces close competition from her pal, jennifer lawrence. >> can you imagine if amy schumer beats her friend, jennifer lawrence, for the golden globe? the speech would be memorable. >> reporter: the foreign press association is showing love to rookie films, like "mr. robot." >> you've been staring at a screen too long. >> reporter: netflix leads the streaming services with eight tv nods. amazon video scored five. hulu is coming to the party with its first golden globes nomination for "casual."

we are back on this sunday morning, january 10th, 2016. people are already out on the plaza. first group of folks since the tree came back. we thank them for starting their day with us, especially since it's downpouring out there. >> one of the days you can hear the water pounding on your window. thank you for coming out. let's look at the headlines this morning. no winning ticket yet in last night's record $950 million powerball drawing. lottery officials expect the jackpot to climb to $1.3 billion, with a "b," on wednesday. we're learning about a secret interview with actor sean penn and el chapo, which may have led to the recapture of the drug kingpin. there are questions. in the interview published by "rolling stone" overnight, el chapo defends his role as head of the largest drug trafficking organization. the minnesota vikings and
seattle seahawks will face off in one of the coldest playoff games in nfl history. zero degrees before the wind chill is factored in. kickoff at 1:00 p.m. coverage begins at noon on nbc. we begin this half hour with a final check of the weather from dylan, who is in minnesota. >> it can go up two degrees. game time, we're looking at zero. right now, it's like nine below. that's not factoring in the wind chill. i gave up on the vaseline thing. i think the jacket is the way to go if you're out here in the upper plains and the upper midwest. we are going to see just really cold temperatures. you guys have got the warm air. we could break records in new york city today. the record is 60 degrees. we're forecasting highs in the upper 50s. it comes with a lot of rain. we could see flash flooding. rain up to one to two inches expected. not good for the ski resorts across new england.
the colder air is coming. as the cold air crosses the great lakes, it's producing lake-effect snow. erie, we could end up with a foot of snow. out west, we're looking at decent conditions for the golden globes. 60 degrees and not any rain. hardly any clouds. it looks good on the west coast. that's a look at the weather across the count hey, happy sunday to you. meteorologist anthony slaughter tracking rain across the golden gate bridge. it's not heavy. it's light shower activity even across the south bay. we've got some slick roads as light showers are falling in some spots. as you move through the day today, we are going to see a little bit of brief shower activity. it's not going to be an all-day event, but we will see times of passing rain. temperatures in the mid-50s for highs today. then tonight the big storm system arrives with heavy rain arriving by tomorrow morning. >> erica, if you're wondering how i'm still smiling out here,
it's literally frozen on my face. i can't get it to go away. >> i had a feeling. dylan, thank you. turning now to the golden globes. with a look at who maybe we think should win, versus who will take home the hardware. here to break it down, we'll start with the film nominees. eric davis is managing editor at fandango. let's start with best motion picture drama. >> "mad max: fury road" should win. i think "spotlight" will win. it has everything voters are looking for. a great ensemble, real-life story. the people voting are journalists. this is one of the great movies about journalism. i think "spotlight" takes it. >> when it comes to best motion picture musical or comedy, always an interesting way to consider movies comedies, but who will win and who should? >> "the martian" should win. it's one of the most entertaining movies of 2015.
i think "the big short" will win. great cast, fascinating real-life story. i love how they cut to a bubble bath to explain the complex financial crisis. >> now, actresses. in the drama category, we have two actresses from the same film against each other. >> i think brie larson steals it. i think she should win and will win for "room." this is her first golden globe nomination. she's an incredible actress who deserves her due. >> there's a lot of talk about leonardo dicaprio in "the revenant." >> i think he earns the golden globe, as well as his first oscar. >> which we're looking for next after the globes. when it comes to comedy, we have besties against each other.
amy schumer and jennifer lawrence. who do you think takes it? >> golden globes loves jennifer lawrence. four nominations, two wins. i think amy schumer takes it. she's hilarious in "train wreck." it's a great new york movie. these things matter. 2015 was the year of amy schumer. >> i can't wait to hear her speech, hoping for that reason alone, she gets it. >> now let's go to jeff for the tv category. >> we're joined by the editor from "entertainment weekly." >> good morning. >> let's get going with television. we're talking about the best television series, the drama nominees. >> i think "game of thrones" should win. that show is making a movie every week on tv, when you think about the scope of what they do. they film in multiple countries, have casts of hundreds. it's incredible. i think "mr. robot" will win. the globes love to recognize newbies.
>> best television series musical or comedy. some of the shows we may know. others are sort of new. >> that's right. it's an interesting mix. we have "casual" from hulu. "orange is the new black" from netflix. also things like "veep." i think "transparent" should win and will win again. in the first season, it was groundbreaking. she was telling the story of her own transparent. season two was just as good as one. >> best performance by an actress in a television series. this is hard. it's between henson from "empire" and viola davis from "how to get away with murder." >> we saw viola davis get the award at the emmys. i think 2015, the tv story was "empire." henson was a part of the face. >> i'm happy either way. "empire" is a great show. best actor in a television series.
>> this one, i would love to see aziz take it home. the show wasn't nominated as a comedy. >> you think jon hamm should win? >> i think for best drama. and i think "mad men" wrapped up this year, and he turned out an iconic performance as don draper. >> best performance by an actress in a television series, musical or comedy. what are your thoughts? >> julia louis dreyfus is terrific. jamie lee curtis is so beloved. "scream queens." i think the globes will recognize her. >> since you love "transparent," jeffrey tambor, best performance by an actor in a series. >> i think he'll win. >> we'll bring you back on monday perhaps. >> thank you.
