Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki to receive honorary Oscar

1 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spoiler alert! According to the Wall Street Journal, legendary Japanese filmmaker and Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki will receive an honorary Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in November.

This will mark the second Oscar on Miyazaki’s mantle, the first of which was for his 2001 film Spirited Away, which took home Best Animated Feature Film. Here’s an official statement from the Academy about Miyazaki’s award:

“Miyazaki is an artist, writer, director, producer and three-time Oscar nominee in the Animated Feature Film category, winning in 2002 for Spirited Away. His other nominations were for Howl’s Moving Castle in 2005 and The Wind Rises last year. Miyazaki gained an enormous following in his native Japan for such features as Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Laputa: Castle in the SkyMy Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service before breaking out internationally in the late 1990s with Princess Mononoke. »

Academy's Special 2014 Honorees: Veterans Belafonte, Carrière, Miyazaki and - Finally - O'Hara

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte

One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

Carrière, who began his career as a novelist, was introduced to screenwriting by French comedian and filmmaker Pierre Étaix, with whom he shared an Oscar for the live action short subject “Heureux Anniversaire (Happy Anniversary)” in 1962. He »

The World of Hideaki Anno will include screenings of around 50 of of his works, including TV and theatrical animation, short films he created when he was at school, commercial films, and promotional videos.

As Flora Poste, she's unfazed by all manner of bucolic tribulation and, drawing on her 'higher common sense', she simply sorts it all out. Who wouldn't want to be so perfectly phlegmatic?

Procrastination isn't my bag. I hanker after swift decisions, clear direction and a strong dose of gumption. So perhaps it's not surprising that up there on my movie pedestal are a collection of characters that cut to the chase. That two of these are essentially homicidal maniacs is, I assure you, simply an unfortunate coincidence and obviously not a characteristic to be admired. But their glorious efficiency most certainly is.

The James Clayton Column: The beautiful legacy of Hayao Miyazaki

8 May 2014 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With The Wind Rises out in the UK now, James salutes the work of its legendary animator, Hayao Miyazaki...

Feature

The Wind Rises gets its UK release this week, and that's very good news for those of us who've been waiting patiently for Hayao Miyazaki's new movie. Studio Ghibli's latest - a fictionalised biopic of the aircraft engineer and designer Jiro Horikoshi - came out last July in its native Japan. Now, finally, we arrive at the point where we can see the acclaimed anime feature though, indubitably, the experience will be a bittersweet one.

After this one there will be no new Miyazaki films. The man responsible for such cinematic masterpieces as My Neighbour Totoro, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away announced his retirement from moviemaking last autumn. Though the animation auteur has made similar statements in the past and subsequently returned to direct again, it appears that »
