“Do you think both of those movies are being punished by Oscar because they’re pro-American movies?” Doocy inquired of The Donald, who often appears on the “Fox & Friends” show.

Without hesitation, Mr. Trump shot this theory down. “I don’t think so,” he said. Then he went on to praise NBC for how much it has built up the Golden Globe franchise over the years. (Is it a coincidence that Trump’s own “Celebrity Apprentice” appears on that network? You be the judge.)

Anyway, we’d say that this is one mark for rationality: Both “Argo” and “Zero Dark Thirty” have won an Academy Award Best Picture nomination, after all.

But it’s true that this year, politics is swirling around the film awards season like never before. Look at who appeared as a surprise presenter on the Golden Globe telecast – Bill Clinton.

Or, as host Amy Poehler referred to him, “Hillary Clinton’s husband.”
