Of the films nominated for Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards, there's a strong undercurrent of patriotism among the favourites to win. Argo is about the rescue of US citizens from an Iranian hostage crisis. Zero Dark Thirty is about the quest for American justice against her enemies. Heck, if you want to stretch things, even Les Misérables has French Revolutionaries in it. And perhaps the most patriotic of all is Lincoln, director Steven Spielberg's portrait of America's 16th President. But while Lincoln is an excellent film, worthy of its accolades, it may prove too academic to win Oscar's popularity contest.
