So what do you think? I haven't seen Silent Voice yet, but it sounds too serious for the Oscar crowd's tastes. Also, Oscars in recent years do tend to favor commercially successful films, which would not explain why last year Your Voice got passed over. Maybe it was because half-way through, Your Voice takes a dark turn, and Oscar prefers light and cheerful animation. I certainly do not seen the modern Oscars as a recognition of artistic achievement.

Your opinion?
