The Mainichi Film Awards are a series of annual film awards sponsored by Mainichi Shinbun, one of the largest newspaper companies in Japan.
Held since 1946, it recognizes Japanese talent and excellence in film, usually handing out just two awards per year.
Since the 1980's, animation films have gained more recognition, particularly those popular in the West.
