The election of Donald J. Trump has affected a lot of things...including this year's Oscar race. Co-hosts Kyle Buchanan of Vulture.com and John Horn of The Frame are joined this week by entertainment reporter Jen Yamato from The Daily Beast. They debate how Academy members may view this year's crop of films differently in light of the election. Will they vote to send a message to DC with their Oscar picks?
