Has politics weighed on Oscars race?

Director Steven Spielberg and actor Daniel Day-Lewis (R) greet the crowd during a ''Lincoln'' promotional tour in Rome on Januray 17, 2013. The most obviously political film vying for Academy Award glory on Sunday is Spielberg's "Lincoln".Perhaps it is no surprise, given that 2012 was a US election year, but this year's Oscars crop includes a heavy dose of politics -- which has arguably influenced Hollywood's top awards race.
