Following a very decent box-office in 2020 (in the top ten), Takahisa Zeze‘s movie gets kudos from the Japanese Academy Awards. Excellence Prizes (equivalent to nominations) for Best Actor (Masaki Suda), Best Actress (Nana Komatsu) and Best Soundtrack (Seiji Kameda).
The 44th Japanese Academy Awards ceremony will be held on March 19 at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa in Tokyo where both winners (Grand Prize) and ‘nominees’ (Excellence Prize) will meet and discuss their works. This is the 3rd time actress Komatsu Nana gets a nod from the Academy (one win and one nom so far) thus inflating a pretty decent list of awards and nominations.
