"Go" has just picked up three awards at the 44th Blue Ribbon Awards,
announced yesterday. The awards, selected by film writers for seven Tokyo
sports newspapers, went to Yukisada Isao for best director, Yamazaki
Tsutomu for best supporting actor, and Shibasaki Ko for best newcomer.
Other winners were Amami Yuki for Best Actress, for her performances in
three films: Harada Masato's "Inugami", Takenaka Naoto's "Rendan" and
Horikawa Tonko's "Sennen no Koi: Hikaru Genji Monogatari". Kyogen
performer Nomura Mansai won Best Actor for "Onmyoji", an unexpected hit
about a medieval exorcist that made 3,000,000,000 yen at the Japanese box
office. A sequel is in the works. Naraoka Tomoko picked up Best
Supporting Actress for "Hotaru" (the Takakura Ken-starrer, not Kawase
Naomi's much ignored film).
Best Japanese Picture went to "Spirited Away" (Sen to Chihiro no
Kamikakushi), while South Korean hit "JSA" won Best Foreign Language
