Shin Godzilla Just Won the Japanese Academy Award for Best Picture (ICYMI)

Epic reboot of a revered franchise! Just plain good movie!

Yes, the King of the Monsters is an Academy Award winner.

Last Sunday night’s Academy Awards here in the States were pretty crazy, ending with a twist that not even M. Night Shyamalan could’ve seen coming. Meanwhile, Japan’s version of the Academy Awards (technically called Japan Academy Prize) celebrated its 40th anniversary with a ceremony today, and we’re happy to report that Toho’s Shin Godzilla totally swept the show.

The Kaiju film won Best Picture, while directors Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi took home the directing statue. Toho’s latest Godzilla production also won awards for Editing (Hideaki Anno and Atsuki Sato), Cinematography (Kousuke Yamada), Art Direction (Yuji Hayashida & Eri Sakushima), Lighting (Takayuki Kawabe), and Sound Recording (Jun Nakamura & Haru Yamada).

Yes, that’s SEVEN total awards. Congrats, Big G!

Shin Godzilla (also known as Godzilla Resurgence) was the highest grossing live-action film released in Japan last year and also the highest-grossing Japanese Godzilla film of all time.

6. It has been widely shared on the internet...

for free, non-commercial, private use - if you know what I mean.

You can stream it, but downloading it to your computer would more than likely be illegal - at least that's what our ISP keeps telling us.

9. Saw it last weekend

The evolution was incredible, like I told Yui it's probably one of the best if not THE best Godzilla movie I've ever seen.

8. There is no release date announcement.

I would expect by US commercial holiday season, though.
