The Japan Academy Prize, often called the Japan Academy Awards or the Japanese Academy Awards, is a series of awards given annually since 1978 by the Nippon Academy-sh Association for excellence in Japanese film. Award categories are similar to the Academy Awards. The award statue itself measures 27 cm 11 cm 11 cm (10.7 in 4.4 in 4.4 in). Although the Japan Academy Prize has been awarded annually since 1978 to Japanese films, animation films - or anime films - were disregarded in the early years of the Prize. Animation films have included top grossing Japanese films of the year, such as Doraemon (1981), Studio Ghiblis Kikis Delivery Service (1989), Only Yesterday (1991), Porco Rosso (1992), Pom Poko (1994), and Whisper of the Heart (1995). Yet no animated film received a nomination for a Japan Academy Prize during those years. This was notably different from other major Japanese film awards, such as the Mainichi Film Award and Kinema Junpo, which both awarded Picture of the Year to My Neighbor Totoro in 1988.
