FROM THIS EPISODE

The Sundance Film Festival kicks off tonight, and documentaries, including several on gun control, seem to be the films people are most excited about going in. Robert Redford stated that one of the issues at the center of the festival this year will be diversity, a hot topic following the second year in a row that every best actor and actress nominee at the Oscars has been white. The Academy could have included more diverse nominees from movies like Straight Outta Compton or Creed, but they didn't go that direction. Spike Lee and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have said they will not attend this Oscars this year because of the lack of diversity. Now, industry leaders are trying to figure out how to accelerate diversity with the Academy itself and the movies they nominate.
