While most years the political side of the Oscars has been subdued, eliciting groans and eye-rolls if it rears its pariah head, this year is different. This year, Trump has finally made the Oscars politically relevant.</p> <p>Oscar has&nbsp;always had an awkward relationship with political speech. They'll flirt and hold hands and make silly jokes until someone (probably George Clooney) gets over-sincere and the whole thing sort of falls apart in mutual embarrassment.</p> <p>But this year is different. This year we have a massively controversial president who's&nbsp;proven he's watching awards shows and will actually respond to, at least, what Meryl Streep has to say. This year a lot of Oscar nominees are pissed off about &nbsp;and offended by the president's words and actions. This year, we have a set of nominated Oscar films whose stories and messages run parallel&nbsp;to the battles playing out in the news. Even Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel knows&nbsp;we can't go a whole day without&nbsp;talking about Trump.</p> <p>"Right now, you go to dinner, and everyone wants to talk about Donald Trump the whole time," he <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/22/arts/television/-jimmy-kimmel-hosting-oscars.html?_r=0">told the <em></em>New York&nbsp;<em>Times</em></a>.&nbsp;"Love &rsquo;em or hate &rsquo;em, he is Topic No. 1, 2 and 4."</p> <p>Let's take a look at the politics of the nominated movies. It's not uncommon for the Academy to honor stories that have&nbsp;a political bent. What is uncommon is for those politics to actually be relevant in the current climate. A lot of the time it feels like Oscar movies are talking about political fights that were decided years, decades, or even centuries ago. But&nbsp;now we have a president who seems thrilled&nbsp;to play the bad guy in a modern civil rights movie. He's picking fights in areas the Oscar movies just happen to be addressing.</p> <p>Immigration?&nbsp;<em>Lion</em>, nominated for Best Picture, is all about the immigrant experience. And even kids' movie&nbsp;<em>Moana</em> has sort of a soft take on the subject. If&nbsp;<em>Moana</em> breakout hit "How Far I'll Go" &mdash; which could be an immigrant anthem by the way &mdash;wins the Oscar for Best Original Song, don't expect songwriter and&nbsp;<em>Hamilton</em> scribe Lin-Manuel Miranda to keep quiet about politics.</p> <p>"It's a political time, so I imagine the Oscars will look exactly like your Twitter or Facebook feed," he <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/lin-manuel-miranda-his-lifelong-oscars-obsession-why-show-still-matters-guest-column-977559">told <em>The Hollywood Reporter</em></a>.&nbsp;"Why should we ignore for three hours what we're talking about 24 hours a day?"</p> <p>LGBTQ civil rights?&nbsp;<em>Moonlight</em>, also nominated for Best Picture, is about the damage done to a gay man in a hyper-masculine culture who who learns from an early age to hide his sexuality. Also, it's about poor people in the inner city &mdash; people&nbsp;Trump seems to know so little about that he dismisses their entire experience&nbsp;as "<a href="http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2017/01/what_trump_means_when_he_talks_about_american_carnage.html">American carnage.</a>" Breakout&nbsp;<em>Moonlight</em> actor&nbsp;Mahershala Ali has a very good chance of winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars Sunday. And after the Muslim actor's speech at the SAG Awards, we assume he'll have something to say at the Oscars, too.</p> <div class="widget html-widget w60" data-widget-guid="Mc5KZT29jaP" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/html_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="html_widget"> <blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"> <p lang="et" dir="ltr">Mahershala Ali of <a href="https://twitter.com/moonlightmov">@moonlightmov</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/sagawards?src=hash">#sagawards</a> <a href="https://t.co/q9txL6fW8R">pic.twitter.com/q9txL6fW8R</a></p> &mdash; SAG Awards&reg; (@SAGawards) <a href="https://twitter.com/SAGawards/status/825881535291105282">January 30, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async="" src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div> <p>Other nominees that seem likely to speak out against Trump if they win include Viola Davis and Meryl Streep. The duo delivered a blistering one-two punch at the Golden Globes, and Streep's words took up a decent-sized chunk of the news cycle for a few days after.</p> <p>What about the argument that entertainers should stay out of politics? Author and screenwriter John Irving recently took on that idea. He won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for&nbsp;<em>The Cider House Rules</em> in 2000, and he's not the only one who feels it's unfair to expect these people to not have opinions.</p> <p>"There is a sniffery of disapproval at mixing entertainment with politics, that there&rsquo;s a kind of understanding that it&rsquo;s somehow distasteful and inappropriate for sports celebrities, actors, writers, collectively artists, for us to dabble in politics," <a href="http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/film/john-irving-on-the-role-of-politics-on-the-oscar-stage/article34110614/">he told&nbsp;<em>The Globe and Mail</em></a>.&nbsp;"Politics is strictly for people with political commitments and knowledge.

The first image from the set of the film shows Alden Ehrenreich in a leather jacket that looks more Indiana Jones than Han Solo, but the resemblance and attitude don't leave much doubt. This is our new Han. He's flanked by Phoebe Waller-Bridge on his right&nbsp;and Emilia Clarke on his left. Both actresses are playing as-yet-unnamed characters, but there's no mistaking that wookiee in the upper right.</p> <p>Squeezed in under Chewbacca is Phil Lord and his buddy/co-director Chris Miller is the guy kneeling under Woody Harrelson, who's playing Han's sort-of-mentor Garris Shrike. Rounding out the photo on the far right is ringer Donald Glover who's been brought in to play a young Lando Calrissian.</p> <p>They're all sitting in the cockpit of what definitely appears to be the Millennium Falcon, and we're guessing based on the info we have that we might even get to see how Han came to own the ship in the movie.</p> <p>In a story posted to StarWars.com, Lord and Miller jointly said, "Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous.

Her decreased role on the show and subsequent decreased screen time makes her a prime candidate to be the big knockoff of season seven's second half. Let's discuss why.</p> <p>Last night's episode, "New Best Friends," was largely concentrated on Rick's gladiator battle with urchin zombie...</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 no-top-padding" data-widget-guid="q9Wd54fdl9r" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="q9Wd54fdl9r"><img src="http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/1pcFET6G6qEx.jpg" title="TWD urchin zombie" alt="Are These Carol's Final Days on 'The Walking Dead'?" /></div> <div class="below attribution">AMC</div> </div> </div> <p>...but there was another, more important happening back near the Kingdom: Daryl and Carol reunited. This scene was important because it felt like a goodbye. Typically, TV shows will give characters poignant final scenes before they disappear.&nbsp;</p> <p>But let's back up.</p> <p>The Survivors are priming for war with the Saviors. Rick and the crew are recruiting allies for the big brawl to come, and it will come. War is inevitable on&nbsp;<em>The Walking Dead</em> and things are<a href="http://comicbook.com/thewalkingdead/2016/08/21/greg-nicotero-says-the-walking-dead-season-7-gets-a-lot-worse-be/"> going to get worse before they get better</a>. Now, perhaps the worst is behind the Survivors. Losing Glenn and Abraham is about as bad as it gets, but what if the body count climbs? Who's another major character the show could knock off in the coming weeks?</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 no-top-padding" data-widget-guid="0k0X9P7sspO" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="0k0X9P7sspO"><img src="http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/mGy1SrGGunEx.jpg" title="Carol TWD" alt="Are These Carol's Final Days on 'The Walking Dead'?" /></div> <div class="below attribution">AMC</div> </div> </div> <p>My heart tells me Carol will make it to the end, but what I've seen on the show this season makes me wonder. She's been in three episodes in season seven and only in one significantly. In last night's episode, the Kingdom's Richard says this about her to Daryl:</p> <p><em>&ldquo;Living on her own like that, she might as well be dead right now.&rdquo;</em></p> <p>Richard wants to sacrifice Carol in a complicated plan to take out some Saviors and the idea is ridiculous. He also acts like it's the only option which is even more ridiculous. Why would the show broach Carol's death in such a manner? Why would the writers give this minor character a half-baked scheme&nbsp;centered on killing Carol? Obviously, the plan would never happen. But it says something the writers are talking so openly about Carol's death. They could be preparing the viewers. &nbsp;</p> <p>Then there's the Daryl scene.&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w50 no-top-padding" data-widget-guid="omIEs_szxkC" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="omIEs_szxkC"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/XaWAKyLoAn8x.gif" title="TWD" alt="Are These Carol's Final Days on 'The Walking Dead'?" /></div> <div class="below attribution">AMC</div> </div> </div> <p>After a big hug and Daryl asking her why she left, Carol asks if everyone is safe back at Alexandria. She doesn't know about the deaths of Glenn and Abraham and Daryl doesn't tell her. He says "everyone's fine" to protect her feelings, but what if it's something else? Are the writers sparing Carol from those losses because she's on her way out also? If Daryl had told the truth, Carol would run to join the fight, something Morgan points out to Daryl later. But, by protecting her, it's possible Daryl's sealed her fate by accident.</p> <p>Carol is still living by herself in that little house. She's still a sitting duck for any Savior looking to have a little sadistic fun. Imagine Carol is murdered in such a fashion.</p> <p>Sure seems like a good way to start a war. If Carol dies, Ezekiel would have a reason to join Rick. That has to happen somehow. It would also lead to Daryl going ballistic, which fans would love.</p> <p>To recap: Carol's role on the show has diminished greatly. She's sworn off killing. She lives in a house by herself, a situation everyone deems more dangerous the longer she's there.&nbsp;Her death is the center of a plan suggested by one of the <em>good guys</em>. She hasn't had contact with any of her friends, but her closest friend just paid her a visit for no apparent reason other than dinner. And, her death would unite the groups. What do you think? Are we witnessing the final days of Carol?

While we can expect two more seasons of the show to end all shows, after Season 8, winter will have come and gone for the last time. Spin-offs? Most assuredly. But I digress.</p> <p>Naturally, the actors we've grown to love since 2011 are going to be looking out for their next exciting opportunities, and according to <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3229685/">IMDb, Kit Harington</a>&nbsp;is getting the jump. The Brit has officially signed on to two new projects.</p> <p><em>The Death and Life of John F. Donovan</em>, filming now, is the star-studded story of a U.S. movie star whose life is turned upside-down when his interactions with a child actor are revealed to the public.
