    I know, in January of 2016, that no one will ever see this comment, but … how did “Song of the Sea” not make this top 5? It’s “Certified Fresh” with 99% positive reviews (76/77). My own love for the movie notwithstanding, it’s omission seems at a minimum erroneous based on the seemingly objective standards for “Golden Tomato” selection.

    “The Tale of Princess Kaguya” is also missing from this list, but at least receives acknowledgment in the “Best Foreign Movies of 2014” category. “Song of the Sea,” in spite of it’s overwhelmingly positive reviews and distinct style, is conspicuously absent across the board.
