The Winning Numbers For Powerball’s Big $1.5 Billion Drawing Are In!:

The numbers drawn were 08, 27, 34, 04 and 19, and the Powerball was 10.

There was at least one winner for the record-shattering $1.5 billion jackpot. A winning Powerball ticket was sold in Chino Hills, California, according to the California Lottery Association.

The last drawing on January 9 marked the 19th without a grand prize winner.

Disclaimer: The winner won’t take home the full $1.5 billion. First, there will be a nine-digit tax bill. And odds are there will be more than one winning ticket. In that case, the prize money is split evenly among them. There has been winning tickets in Florida & Tennessee Just announced

Oscar Front-Runners Hard To Find As Nominations Loom:

Give Leonardo DiCaprio some credit: He’s worked hard to put himself in the Oscar conversation.

The “Revenant” star famously ate a raw bison liver (which, he said, did NOT taste like chicken), waded through icy water and came down with the flu several times while portraying Hugh Glass, the vengeful 19th-century trapper, in the wilderness epic.

For his efforts (including some acting), he’s considered the front-runner for best actor.

That makes him unusual, because this year’s Oscar races feature very few front-runners at all.

The nominations for the 88th Academy Awards will be announced Thursday morning.
