    My guess is that this thing got the Oscar not only for being #good but also because its subject matter legitimizes it for a voting body like the Academy. Classical music by way of Johann Strauss renders this a prestige cartoon, if that's a thing, and that fits pretty nicely with it being an MGM property. There's an early Simpsons episode with Itchy & Scratchy doing something akin to this, and it's funnier.
