James McAnteer breaks down the 2016 Oscars race. Much has been made of the omission of African American actors. The situation is tricky, as the Academy is a reflection of the industry behind it.

Several months removed, it now seems clear that the Democratic debate on October 13 contained an illuminating moment that has come to embody the 2016 Democratic Primary and the key differences between its two candidates.  Confronting Bernie Sanders’s insistence that the United States has much to learn from more socialized nations, particularly the Nordic Model, Hillary Clinton was direct: “I love Denmark.  But we are not Denmark.  We are the United States of America.”
