December 29, 2009 — Leave a comment

This isn’t a regular Award Season post.

But it’s a lot of postings… I should post one by one, but I am lazy… even if it increases posts number which have decreased a bit this month.

First with the Most Anticipated~~~

Yu gets a mention for Otouto which is about to open in a few days~~~

Then we go to some award nominations~~~

Dear Doctor gets Best Picture and Best Director for Miwa Nishikawa, as well as awards for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress (Kimiko Yo) at the Nikkan. Mother got some love for Foreign Film, and Masaki Okada earned the New Artist for A Pierrot (what? LOL)

The Hochi awards the film with a Best Director as well, a Best Supporting Actor for Eita, and a Supporting Actress for Kaoru Yachigusa. Michael Jackson got a Special Award, and some more love for Ken Watanabe, Clint Eastwood and Masaki Okada who also won Best New Artist for Honokaa Boy.

Seems like the Japan Academy Award will be fought over The Sun Doesn’t Set, and Dear Doctor~~~

And to close this post, a Top Best Asian Films of the Decade.
Will work on mine later~~~
