Hayao Miyazaki one of anime’s most iconic film directors, animator, author, manga artist and co-founder of Studio Ghibli will be presented with a career achievement award at The Los Angeles film Critics Association.
Miyazaki has been working in the animated world for almost 55 years starting his career with Toei Animation in 1963. While in the business he has created many amazing films such as a Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away. His films and many works of art has taken many viewers away into unique and magical places.
During his career he has been awarded six Japan Academy Awards, eight Kinematic Junpo Awards, eight Tokyo Anime Awards, five Annie Awards and an Academy award. This is just to name a few.
With a successful career I can understand why he will be presented with a career achievement award. It is well deserved.
Many of Miyazaki’s animations are some of my favorites. I can watch his animations over and over. I love the way it takes me away from the real world and makes me feel as though I am part of his film. How can I pick a favorite when many of them are amazing. He is truly an artist and talent person. He is one of my favorite people In the business. Congrats to Miyazaki!!
