Not exactly an Oscar Winner at first glance .
Yep. Silence of the Lambs is the perfect example of a film that was made with absolutely no thought about awards and released way early in the year but managed to win ONLY on the strength of its quality.

These days frankly it is a such an affair that you pretty much can't win without campaigning your ass, quality be damned.
