Godzilla Minus One continues its Award Season crusade with the Japanese Academy Awards. Once again, the film makes history by being the Godzilla film with the most nominations, beating Shin Godzilla by one nomination. In 2017, Shin Godzilla won 7 Japanese Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director(s). Will history repeat itself?

Take a look at the full list nominations:

Best Film - Godzilla Minus One
Best Director - Takashi Yamazaki
Best Screenplay - Takashi Yamazaki
Best Actor - Ryunosuke Kamiki
Best Actress - Minami Hamabe
Best Supporting Actress - Sakura Ando
Best Music - Naoki Sato
Best Cinematography - Kozo Shibasaki
Best Lighting - Nariyuki Ueda
Best Art Direction - Anri Jojo
Best Sound - Hisafumi Takeuchi
Best Editing - Ryuji Miyajima

Additionally, Keizo Murase, director of the upcoming tokusatsu film, Brush of the God, will be recognized with a special award for his work in Japanese film. Murase has sculpted monster suits in the kanji genre, from Godzilla, Gamera, Daimajin and more. Some of his stand out monster suits/props were Mothra, from 1961’s Mothra, Godzilla and King Ghidorah from Mothra vs. Godzilla and Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster as well as many more leading into the Heisei series.

Also of note, Minami Hamabe also received a Supporting Actress nomination for her role in Shin Kamen Rider. She will be up against co-star  Sakura Ando for the award.

Shin Godzilla won Best Picture, Best Director(s), Best Cinematography, Best Lighting, Best Art Direction, Best Sound and Best Editing in 2017. We’ll be watching to see if Godzilla Minus One can repeat history and beat out Shin Godzilla’s number of wins.

Congratulations to everyone involved with the Godzilla Minus One and the long history of tokusatsu!

Set in a post-war Japan, Godzilla Minus One will once again show us a Godzilla that is a terrifying and overwhelming force. Japan, which had already been devastated by the war, faces a new threat with Godzilla, bringing the country from nothing (zero) into the ‘minus.’

Godzilla Minus One is directed by Takashi Yamazaki. An award winning filmmaker and avid Godzilla fan, his work on Always: Sunset on Third Street (2005) earned him two Japanese Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Screenwriter. He was honored with another Best Director and Best Screenplay nomination for the sequel, Always: Sunset on Third Street 2 (2007). In 2016, he won the Best Director category again for The Eternal Zero. Yamazaki also helmed highly acclaimed actioners, Returner, Space Battleship Yamato and many others.

He gave Godzilla a cameo during an opening dream sequence in Always: Sunset on Third Street 2. In 2021 he returned to Godzilla and directed footage for Seibuen Amusement Park's Godzilla the Ride: Giant Monster Battle Summit.

Godzilla Minus One is now playing in both Japan and North America.
