It’s the following afternoon, and people are still offering up their hot takes on Meryl Streep’s Sunday night Golden Globes speech. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest has weighed in on it, and the Associated Press even fact-checked Donald Trump’s claim that Streep is overrated.

If that’s not enough for you, rest assured: the Los Angeles Times has kicked off 2017 with a promise that it will keep the discussion about Hollywood and mainstream American values going all year long.

The LA Times already weighed in on Streep’s speech specifically, calling it a “powerful act of political defiance.” However, the paper launched its investigation into the relationship between Hollywood and middle America Saturday with a handful of analyses.

Think Hollywood has a liberal agenda? Then why are movies so dominated by the stories of straight, white males, asks Mary McNamara, who notes that “for every film that does not revolve around such a lead character, there are 78 others that do, just as for every series that features a transgender character, there are 8,000 that do not.”

Another take by Kenneth Turan argues that Hollywood movies paved the way for a President Trump. How did someone so coarse get so far in politics? Credit is due in part to raunchy comedies like “Knocked Up” and “Sausage Party” that “in effect normalized that kind of once-unthinkable language and gave people with a mind to excuse it leeway to do so.”

There’s plenty more where that came from, and the paper promises that it’s only “the start of a conversation we’ll have all year with Hollywood’s creators, consumers and observers.” Most of all, though, the paper wants to hear from you — so have at it. Has Hollywood lost touch?
