Not this time ! A recipient of an Excellence Prize for her role as Sonoda Aoi in Ito, actress Komatsu Nana did not get the supreme award in the Best Actress category. Experienced actress Nagasawa Masami was voted Best Actress by the Academy for her remarkable and powerful performance in Mother.
Nana Komatsu looked radiant and beautiful in a Chanel dress from the Haute Couture Fall 2019-2020 Collection, with a new haircut and wearing earrings at the top of her ears. Funnily, there was some interaction and questions from the MCs about her costar Masaki Suda (also a nominee as Best Actor) regarding the filming of Ito and their previous collaborations, much to the delight of fans who like to pair them more often than not.
Though she wasn’t awarded the Best Prize, it seems obvious that Komatsu Nana is no longer perceived as a newcomer, she grabbed several noms and awards during the last two years and it was the second year in a row the Academy gave her a nod. In years to come, there will be plenty of opportunities to rejoice and celebrate, she will sure get the leading parts in strong films that will propel her into a new and even greater dimension.
