With its DGA and PGA wins, La La Land is definitely in the lead and the favourite to win. It would've been a guarantee win if it won the SAG, but it wasn't nominated (I guess for not having a large enough ensemble?). So that still gives a chance for SAG winner Hidden Figures or Moonlight or Manchester By The Sea, but those are long shots. Upsets do happen though.

Muhammad Ali Jr. revealed that he was detained for two hours on a returning flight from Jamaica after being asked "Are you a Muslim?" A spokesman/lawyer stated that they are in the process of finding out how many others have been asked this question as they believe that it is profiling. They can add Olympic medallist Ibtihaj Muhammad to that list as she also had something similar happen to her recently.
The lawyer for Ali Jr. stated that they are surveying others and if they find that there is a sizeable enough number they would be looking to file a federal lawsuit.
They stopped a NASA scientist born in this country at the border and demanded he unlock his phone just because he had brown skin. This kind of thing always finds ways to include new "others." Case in point, Muhammad Ali Jr. got detained and asked about his religion.
Not trying to make light of this tragedy and no doubt it's awful, but you mentioned yesterday about doubting tourism will be down due to a Muslim ban. I actually agree to an extent but it's not about that. It's about the fact that this country is becoming non welcoming to anyone not Anglo white. My sister in law is here as a permanent resident with a green card from the Philippines and even she is now afraid to go home for a visit in fear of what will happen when she returns. I think there are plenty of people who are non Muslim but " look different" than a so called "real American" that feel the same way.
