>> tell us about the wine and food festival that brings you here every year.
>> i heard last night, willie, that this function has raised over $17 million.
>> that's right.
>> for these children wanting to go to school. and lee shrager, my hat is off to him. i don't see how he does it.
>> he has extended it to new york .
>> yes! new york that's a whole different ball game . here we're kind of all in one spot. but in new york , i mean, it's everywhere. i don't see how he does it.
>> it's a huge boost to the economy, too. tourism. people come this time of year just for this event. it's amazing.
>> and everybody has been so excited about y'all being here.
>> we ate our way back and drank our way through.
>> you and bobby hosted it last night.
>> yes. i feel like i've arrived. i can return now.
>> it sounded like the all-star game for chefs like yourselves. was it fun to get together and see everybody?
>> yes. people think if we're all on the food network we're together all the time. but no, that's not true. we hardly ever get to see each other.
>> there's no food network clubhouse?
>> no, no. we're not at each other's house on christmas morning . and so i look forward to seeing all my cohorts and just buddying up. i don't know if they do or not, savannah. i know i certainly don't.
>> we were a little competitive.
>> we had a good time.
>> i'm just a cook. i don't know how i got lucky enough to be here amongst all these chefs.
>> there's a lot of food. there's also a lot of drink.
>> how come you only have the --
>> well, i'll share. we've got one for everybody.
>> here we go.
>> a virgin. mine's a virgin.
>> made you a virgin.
>> made you a special one.
>> created this special mojito a and virgin for you as well, paula .
>> kind of the "today" show colors. did you all know miami has a 24-hour liquor license.
>> we joke about the people on the beach having had a few before the show --
>> seven days a week.
>> now it's just us.
>> so we didn't violate any state laws.
>> good. what happens when they do go 24 hours ? that leads us to our next take two, right?
>> it does. you need the south beach hangover cure. the party cycle kind of goes around the clock here.
>> it's called revive. south beach revive, board certified doctors got together to try to figure out how to cure the hangover. it's hydrating iv treatment.
>> iv with vitamin d .
>> how much have you been drinking that you need -- what the heck?
>> oxygen treatment. look at these people what they're going through to get rid of the hangover.
>> you have to stop drinking before you do this.
>> in true south beach style, upscale setting, massage chairs.
>> they'll even come to you, right?
>> anybody above the age of 18 that passes a brief medical screening.
>> wait a minute, 18, why?
>> i bet it's very brief, though.
>> we should hope 21, because that's the age --
>> it's 18.
>> let's hope you're not drinking --
>> any time there's a needle going into your arm, that's a sign from god that you're drink ing too much!
>> maybe dial it back the next time.
>> it's very quick. you can go there and get straight to the bar.
>> pop in right back to the bar, exactly.
>> talk about problems.
>> my niece did that one time. she had been out partying and drinking and she's not a big drinker, but she felt so rotten the next morning. and it just so happened she was dating a doctor.
>> oh, what did he do for her?
>> he gave her the fluids and she said she felt like a new person.
>> because hangover is partly due to dehydration, so i've heard.
>> not that we're recommending this or anything.
>> right. i would like to have hooked michael up to one.
>> your husband?
>> my husband.
>> all righty. well, paula , we'll get into therapy a little later.
>> good times with paula deen .
>>> oscars are coming up this weekend. on sunday we're having our miami beach party here today but it's a big holiday party --
>> no more mojitos for you. take another drink.
>> here is what it is, hollywood party .
>> check, please!
>> let's make our predictions in a few different categories. we'll start with best picture . we split here. s savannah, natalie and al all going with golden globe winner "argo."
>> i like the saying that alan larkin has.
>> we can't say it on tv.
>> paula , you and i like "silver linings playbook" and "dark horse."
>> i love bradley cooper . i love the fact, willie, that this is about a real family.
>> and real problems.
>> and that they're being talked about, because i think mental illness, it definitely has a stig stigma. and it comes with embarrassment and shame. so i thought it was great that it's being talked about.
>> and it is getting a lot of buzz. there's a lot of buzz for david o. russell as director.
>> that brings us to our directing category. savannah, natalie and al again stinking together, going with --
>> steven spielberg for the win. i think it could be ang lee for "the life of pi ." amazing piece of work.
>> and hard movie to do visually.
>> he pulls it off. unbelievable.
>> and, paula , back to "silver linings playbook" for david o. russell for you. i'm starting to get the feeling you like this movie a little bit.
>> i do. and did you all see bradley cooper in "the words"?
>> he's on fire.
>> he is. and he is so pretty.
>> and there you go.
>> so i take it you would like him for best actor ?
>> well, best anything.
>> i'm going with you on that, by the way.
>> because you're buds and you speak french.
>> team savannah, natalie and al, daniel day lewis .
>> he's the favorite. we would be surprised if he didn't win it.
>> be in character throughout the whole production in itself deserves it.
>> let's look at actress in a leading role . savannah and i both like jessica chastain in "zero dark thirty" you have an interesting choice, natalie , emmanuelle riva for "amore."
>> and al, which way did you go here?
>> jennifer lawrence .
>> the favorite in that category.
>> "silver linings playbook" again. i would be happy with jennifer lawrence , too.
>> it was so competitive.
>> lot of good movies. i don't know. is she with bradley cooper again for best actress ?
>> you picked quvenzhane wallis.
>> i was so tickled to see the oldest and the youngest.
>> what a wonderful story.
>> what a reign.
>> "beasts of the southern wild," beautiful film as well.
>> she is darling. did i see her with you the other day, al?
>> a couple of weeks ago.
>> right and she was too quoout cute.
>> thank you so much.
>> am i leaving?
>> are you sticking around?
>> i thought you were telling me good-bye.
