Studio Ghibli's 'The Boy and the Heron' has been nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2024 Oscars.

Hayao Miyazaki's The Boy and the Heron finally brought Japanese anime into the spotlight.

Studio Ghibli's 'Boy and the Heron' has been nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2024 Oscars. The excitement is building as the 2024 Oscar nominations are revealed, and Japan is proudly in the spotlight with not one but two major nominations. 


The Boy and the Heron Soars: Best Animated Feature Nomination. Boy and the Heron, a legendary Studio Ghibli production, has received a nomination for Best Animated Feature. With four nominations for best-animated feature, the animation icon now shares the record. He previously won a competitive Oscar for 'Spirited Away' and was given an Academy Honorary Award.


In 2014, he got an Academy Honorary Award as well as a competitive Oscar nomination for his films The Wind Rises and Howl's Moving Castle. With his fourth nomination, he now shares the lead in the best-animated movie category with Pixar's Pete Docter. This marks the seventh category nomination for Japan's Studio Ghibli, which Miyazaki co-founded. The nomination is the 13th for a GKIDS-distributed film. This is producer Toshio Suzuki's third Oscar nomination, following The Red Turtle and The Wind Rises.


Challenging competition in store: The Boy and the Heron will face stiff competition from animated giants such as Nimona, Elemental, Robot Dreams, and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Godzilla Minus One is nominated for Best Visual Effects.


Takashi Yamazaki, Godzilla Minus One's director, spills the beans on the film's visual effects. With only 35 artists and a $10 million budget, the Kaiju spectacle wowed audiences and has now received a nomination for Best VFX.


Versus the Titans: The competition in the Best VFX category is fierce, with titles such as Napoleon, Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One, The Creator, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The countdown to the Oscars: March 10, 2024.

Save the date: The 96th Academy Awards will take centre stage on March 10th, and fans are looking forward to the big reveal of the winners. The star-studded event will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.


Mainichi Film Awards: The Boy and the Heron will receive the Noburou Oofuji Award at the 78th Mainichi Film Awards on February 14, recognising its original and inventive animation expressions.


Golden Globes: At the 81st Golden Globe Awards, The Boy and the Heron won Best Motion Picture—Animated.


Annie Awards and BAFTA Recognition: The film received nominations from prominent events such as the Annie Awards and the British Academy Film Awards, demonstrating its international success. The Boy and the Heron is available to watch in many countries. Their release dates were different in different countries.


Release date: Japan-July 14, 2023; Canada-September 7, 2023 (opening film, Toronto International Film Festival); Spain-September 22, 2023 (Donostia-San Sebastián International Film Festival); the United States-October 1, 2023 (New York Film Festival); Spain-October 6, 2023 (Sitges Film Festival); Taiwan-October 6, 2023; the United Kingdom-October 8, 2023 (B FI London Film Festival); France-October 17, 2023 (Grand Lyon Film Festival, premiere); Belgium-October 18, 2023 (Film Fest Gent).
