32nd Japan Academy Awards Nominations

Unfortunately the official site has the nominations only in Japanese and I do not understand the language, but if you do please check the official site here and perhaps can tell us the nominees in the main categories.

Here is an excerpt from the Variety Asia article published yesterday.

"Departures," Yojiro Takita's offbeat drama set in the funeral biz, has scooped 13 nominations for the Japan Academy Awards, including best picture and best director. Second in Japan AA noms was Yoji Yamada's "Kabei -- Our Mother," a WWII home-front drama based on the memoirs of Akira Kurosawa script supervisor Teruyo Nogami. The Japanese academy will announce its winners on February 22.”
