How political are the Oscars?

I watched the Oscars for about 5 minutes, but the thought crossed my mind if films are nominated/win more these days because Academy voters want to support the message of a film more than identifying the "best".

Admittedly, "best" is subjective, so it may be "best for this time in history," but I couldn't shake the notion that it's more political than ever (maybe not and I'm just more aware of it).

Seems like I'm not alone in thinking that.
