To check the winners in all categories please go here if you understand Japanese or here to read them in English.

Think will watch the winner because I do enjoy Ken Watanabe performances, but I expect the story to be hard to watch. Still could be interesting to find how a Japanese filmmaker does this kind of story. I'll tell you what the story is about: "Based on the 1985 plane crash that caused 520 deaths, the worst aviation event in Japanese history".
