Being a host at the Japan Academy Award
So that I would not show any disrespect to the award winners, I have been staying at home a lot since the beginning of the year, studying the nominated films, interview articles and such.
The nervousness I felt during the actual ceremony was different from last year, but being in such a luxurious hall once again filled me with emotion. I was a clumsy host but thank you for all the support from those in the hall and in front of the television! I want to express my gratitude again to everyone involved in the Japan Academy Award for letting me have such a precious experience.
