Godzilla Minus One has been honored with 6 nominations for the 78th Mainichi Film Awards film awards. The Mainichi Film Awards are some of the oldest and most prestigious film awards in Japan, sponsored by the Mainichi Shinbun, Japan’s largest newspaper company.

In 2017, Shin Godzilla won three Mainichi Film Awards, including Best Film, Best Art Direction (Yuji Hayashida & Eri Sakushima) and Best Supporting Actress (Mikako Ichikawa).

This year, Godzilla Minus One has been nominated in the following categories:

Excellence in Film - Godzilla Minus One
Best Director - Takashi Yamazaki
Best Cinematography - Kozo Shibasaki
Best Music - Naoki Sato
Best Art Direction - Asato Kamijo
Best Sound Recording - Hisashi Takeuchi

Winners will be announced in January 2024, with the award ceremony taking place in February 2024.

Set in a post-war Japan, Godzilla Minus One once again shows 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.

Great accolades, but I'm dumbfounded none of the lead actors were nominated! The best characters I've ever seen in a G movie. They truly stayed with me long after seeing it.
