At the end of 2017, A Silent Voice was one of five anime films released by the Academy of Motion Picture alongside In this Corner of the World , Sword Art Online - The Movie: Ordinal Scale , Mary and the Flower of Witches and Ancien and the Magical Kingdom Arts and Sciences were shortlisted for a nomination in this category at the Oscars of 2018 . A total of 26 films were proposed for this category.

Despite the success and overwhelmingly positive press and visitor votes, neither A Silent Voice nor any of the four other Japanese animation films were nominated for an Oscar. This met with sharp criticism from the anime fan community. In particular, the nomination of the animated film The Boss Baby met with little understanding, even among non-anime fans. Four more Japanese animated films have made it since Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki , who won the Oscar in 2003 , Howl's Moving Castle in 2006 , The Legend of Princess Kaguya eight years later , How the Wind Rises in 2015 and Memories to Marnie the following year - all from Studio Ghibli - for receiving an Academy Award nomination. A total of only six Japanese animated films have been nominated since the first award in this category, with The Red Tortoise nominated in 2017 being an international co-production from Belgium , France and Japan . One possible reason is a rule change that came into force in 2018, which states that every member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is entitled to vote if they have viewed at least two-thirds of all proposed films. In addition, there is a suspicion that the members could be influenced by the preferences of their children. But Disney's influence is also mentioned as a possible reason.

An article by the Special Broadcasting Service said that the historical background of the award could also be the reason for the lack of interest in animated films at the Oscars. With regard to anime films, reference is also made to a cultural clash between Japanese and American animated films. Demographics also play a role in the selection of nominations: in a 2014 survey by the Los Angeles Times of the approximately 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, 94 percent were white, 76 percent male and a large proportion were at least 63 years old old. Since anime is mostly consumed by a younger audience, it is believed that Japanese animated films will not be well received by older Academy members, no matter how successful the film has been.
