Thanks to Izumisano for this fantastic news which in turn was taken from here ...

The 4th International Drama Festival opened in Tokyo on Monday (25.10.2010), as part of the annual Japan International Contents Festival (CoFesta). The event's Tokyo Drama Awards were presented on the same day, and the biggest winners were "JIN" and "Mother."

Ryomaden wins Best Drama (series), Best Supporting Actor and Special Award in the 4th International Drama Festival (Tokyo Drama Awards) while Jin and Mother tops with 4 (Grand Prix, Best Actor) and 5 (Best Drama, Best Actress) awards respectively.

The complete award list is as follows:

* Grand Prix (Series Drama): "JIN"
* Best Drama (Series Drama): "Mother", "Dousoukai", "Ninkyo Helper", "Ryomaden"
* Grand Prix (Single Drama): "Wagaya no Rekishi"
* Best Drama (Single Drama): "Toomawari no Ame", "Shoeshine Boy"
* Asia Award: "JIN"
* Local Drama Award: "Mieruhi", "Kaka-san e"
* Best Performance by an Actor: Takao Osawa ("JIN")
* Best Performance by an Actress: Yasuko Matsuyuki ("Mother")
* Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role: Teruyuki Kagawa ("Ryomaden")
* Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role: Machiko Ono ("Hi no Sakana" and "Mother")
* Best Screenplay: Yuji Sakamoto ("Mother")
* Best Director: Hiroshi Kurosaki ("Hi no Sakana")
* Best Producer: Akihiko Ishimaru ("JIN")
* Special Award: Filming staff of "Ryomaden", Mana Ashida ("Mother")
* Best Actor in Asia: Lee Byung Hun ("IRIS")

Congratulations to Ryoma-Den team! Quite consistent is that Ryoma-Den team keeps winning for the filming staff!

No offense but this sounds like some Olympic event with grand prix, best drama, etc. Having watched JIN, it is an interesting series but frankly overly simplistic in its approach and sometime way too dramatic. There must be a better Japanese series for the Grand Prix award? I mean every single episode there is some major brain surgery being conducted and amazing no one died from the surgery. But I won't argue with Takao Osawa's win. I think he's the reason why I continued to watch the series and to finish it.

As for Best Actor In Asia that is Lee Byung Hun, no offense, that is a popularity award. He is a good actor but the BEST ACTOR IN ASIA. Neither is Masha by the way. God forbid if Raymond Lam wins this for Mysteries of Love!

Since Ryoma-Den is still ongoing, will it be eligible for next year's award? And if this is the 4th, where then is the 3rd award?

Anyone interested, redirect them to my blog and ask them to join my contact list. But this is only open to those who will answer the questions in the form below accurately. If you're successful, you will receive quite a few emails since I group all links together into categorised documents. If you're not, I will email and inform why (probably answered some wrongly, such as title not in Romaji or wrong answer). Once you found the answer, please RESUBMIT THE FORM. If you did not receive my emails (whether the many materials or rejection email) within 3 days of joining, please do resend your request. Thanks for joining!
