Oshima Yuko to win her first prize as an actress

  July 12, 2012

It’s announced that AKB48 Oshima Yuko will be awarded “Cut Above Award for Outstanding Debut” at “JAPAN CUTS“, the largest Japanese film festival in North America held in New York.
Comment from Oshima Yuko:
“The character I played in the movie is roving around between ‘Bright side’ and ‘Dark side’, and it was a difficult role to play, I had struggled to figure out what it takes to play this character. I’d never been awarded a prize as an actress, and this time people from such a distant place, New York, appreciated my work, I heard. I feel very honored.”
What Oshima won this time is the prize that awards the most outstanding new talent in the Movie industry, including directors, producers etc. “I keep on improving myself as a human through working on various acting work as an actress Oshima Yuko.”, she said.

Oh this is real!

I’ve never heard of this film festival….

What in the world is this “Japanese film festival in North America” lol
At least I can clearly understand this is not at all a great prize.

This prize started relatively recently.

Whatever, I want to say my congrats to her.

This film festival itself hasn’t been recognized at all in the fisrt place….

LOL The details about this organization….
Bios of it’s staffs……
This suggests very interesting thing (relation between AKB48 and Japanese government)…..

At least I feel secured as Yakusho Koji is awarded in this festival, too. lol

I saw the official website of this organization.
It looks like they are a formal and decent organization. They are promoting Japanese culture in North America.

If it’s not formal, then it’s totally an illegal website as there are tons of video clips from movies lol

I’m looking forward to the release of Ushijima!!
