In some ways, I kind of wish the game would just win an oscar. It would just show how pointless the whole thing is and how they're just handing out oscars to only the most hyped and flashy movies (and as a result games) out there. Not anything that deserves actual merit.
IE: Every single 'Animation' Award going to a CGI film and every 'Best Picture' film going to the most hyped and advertised movie of the year.
Sprited Away got the animation Oscar, so there it something.
And every year following, its been nothing but a 'pick the most popular and big budget CGI fest' award. With most years, not even a single hand drawn piece of animation being nomminated.
I really don't hate CGI, but its pretty rediculous how bias the Academy Awards have become when they're only picking out the most popular or expensive movies to give an award to.
Fun fact, there has never been any hand drawn piece of animation to ever win an academy award aside from Spirited Away. The only OTHER movie to win the academy award aside from a CG picture was Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were Rabbit (Clay Mation). A wonderful movie don't get me wrong and I love it, but it only won THAT award most likely because no major CG movies were nomminated that year.
For reference of just how lopsided and bias the awards have become, here's a history: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academy_Award_for_Best_Animated_Feature
