Hayao Miyazaki Wins Golden Globe

At 82, Japanese animation maestro Hayao Miyazaki clinches his inaugural Golden Globe for “The Boy and the Heron.”

This marks the first Golden Globe win for a non-English animated feature.

Billed as Mr Miyazaki’s final feature, it was up against Disney productions such as Wish and Elemental in the animated feature category.

The film centres on a young boy who meets a mysterious speaking heron after losing his mother during World War Two.

It echoes parts of Mr Miyazaki’s life story. Like the boy, his own family was evacuated to the countryside during the war. Mr Miyazaki also had a deep bond with his own mother, who was said to have had a large influence on his work and the strong female characters in his films.

The Golden Globes have generally been viewed as a bellwether for the Oscars. Mr Miyazaki’s 2001 component, Energetic Away, won an Oscar in the energized highlight class.

Mr Miyazaki emerged from retirement to make The Kid and the Heron, and burned through seven years on the creation. He coordinated and composed the first screenplay for the film.

The film was purportedly the main unique anime film to top the North American film industry after it was delivered there in December.

It previously debuted in Japan in June and has been a film industry hit in numerous nations, earning more than $136m (£107m) around the world.

Maker Toshio Suzuki said last year that it was one of the most costly Japanese movies made.

While the producers were absent in Los Angeles to acknowledge the honor, Mr Suzuki said on Monday: “This is the primary Brilliant Globe granted to a Studio Ghibli film and it is an extremely extraordinary inclination.” Close by Mr Miyazaki, he is one of a few fellow benefactors of Studio Ghibli.

“Starting from the start of this current year, Japan has been hit by a progression of grievous tremors and mishaps… In such a circumstance, I trust the brilliant insight about winning an honor can carry a grin to everybody’s face, regardless of whether just a bit,” he added.
