2012 Japan Academy Prize - winners

The 35th Annual 日本アカデミー賞 (Japan Academy Prize) ceremony took place today at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa, Minato-ku, Tokyo. While all of the nominees are considered prize winners and received an Award of Excellence, an additional statuette went to the "Best" in each category. The ceremony was opened by new Academy President Okada Yusuke and hosted by (Sekine Tsutomu) and 深津絵里 (Eri Fukatsu) who won for Best Actress last year.

八日目の蝉 (Rebirth) by 成島出 (Narushima Izuru) swept the field with ten awards. It won Picture of the Year, Director, Screenplay, Lead Actress for 井上真央 (Inoue Mao) and Supporting Actress for 永作博美 (Nagasaku Hiromi), Music, Cinematography, Lighting Direction, Sound and Editing, plus an additional Rookie of the Year prize for 渡邉このみ (Watanabe Konomi). It had led with thirteen nominations.

Best Actor was awarded posthumously to 原田芳雄 (Harada Yoshio) for his final role in 大鹿村騒動記 (Someday). His career lasted over four decades in which he made over 80 films. His daughter actress 原田麻由 (Harada Mayu) accepted the award on his behalf.

Best Supporting Actor went to でんでん (Denden) for 冷たい熱帯魚 (Cold Fish).

The winner for Animation was コクリコ坂から (From up on Poppy Hill). For Foreign Language Film, The King’s Speech claimed yet another win in its more than year-long string of awards triumphs.
