Asian Film Awards 2014

Asian Film Awards 2013

El pasado 27 de marzo tuvo lugar la 8º edición de los Asian Film Awards donde el gran perdedor sin duda fue el cine japonés.  Hasta 14 nominaciones tenía el cine nipón, con un grande como Koreeda nominado a Mejor Director…  Los Asian Film Awards no han podido ser más injustos.  Tan sólo Shigeru Umebayashi ganaba conjuntamente con Nathaniel Mechaly el premio al Mejor Compositor por The Grandmaster (Hong Kong): la absoluta ganadora de la edición.

On 27 March, the 8th edition of the Asian Film Awards took place where the big loser was undoubtedly the Japanese cinema. Up to 14 nominations had Japanese films, with a big one among them as Koreeda nominated as Best Director … The Asian Film Awards could not be more unfair. Only Shigeru Umebayashi has earned together with Nathaniel Mechaly the award for Best Composer by The Grandmaster (Hong Kong): the absolute winner of the edition.
