It's sometimes easy to forget that other countries and cultures show their appreciation for art and entertainment differently than our own. In the case of Japan, accolades come in forms outside of the obligatory Japanese Academy Awards.

According to Otaku Magazine, Japan's nearly 100 year old film publication, Kinema Junpo, is sometimes considered more prestigious than Japan's version of the Oscars. Knowing that, it's an honor that writer/director Hideaki Anno was awarded Kinema Junpo's best screenwriter prize for his work on Shin Godzilla.

Shin Godzilla was honored highly and ranked #2 in Kinema Junpo's Top 10 films of 2016. It was beat out by In This Corner of the World. The full Top 10 list is below:

1. In This Corner of the World
2. Shin Godzilla
3. Harmonium
4. Destruction Babies
5. The Long Excuse
6. A Bride for Rip Van Winkle
7. Her Love Boils Bathwater
8. Creepy
9. Over the Fence
10. Rage

That makes me incredibly happy for Anno~San & hopefully gives him that much more motivation to finally get the ball rolling on Evangelion Rebuild 4.0 ^_^
