Ryoma-Den didn't win the big prize of Best Team. The Hayabusa Satellite Team won the Grand Prize Teamwork of the Year award, based on the internet votes [Translated by River-Source]
I will just repost what I am reading right now since I have no idea what award is this and by whom. But it is good news for Ryoma-Den team. Thanks to River of MashaPlus Info Forums for the translation. Original source news is here, as reported today on 07.10.2010.
Ryomaden won Teamwork of the Year Award.
Teamwork of the Year 2010 went to Ryomaden to recognise the works that was done by the team in creating the excellent drama. Also won is the Hayabusa Spacecraft Project and four others. The award was created to promote the importance of teamworks. The Grand Prize will be determined by popular votes until 12th November, through the website. However, the winners were selected through surveys and phone interviews.
On the reason why Ryomaden took the award: The drama obviously broke new ground in filmmaking, however, in order to attempt something new, there's probably a few opposition voices who wanted to stick to the old ways. But under the leadership of Chief Producer, who managed to rally everyone into creating this exciting drama. And it managed to show new methods in photography and techniques. Thus, it has resulted in Ryoma that was not seen before. The final results pleased everyone.
This Teamwork Award is created in 2008 and is used to promote and recognise teamwork of companies, or groups of individuals. Reading the Awards Committee's comments on why they select Ryomaden ...The Award Committe said it will be easy to produce a Taiga drama if the production just follows the established practice. But Ryomaden chooses to create a new style and not to follow the same route of previous Taiga drama. Their decision to do this does raise opposition, but under the leadership of its chief producer, the production staff and casts work together and use their teamwork spirit to create an outstanding drama. They are going to select the Best Team out of these 4 units in the awards ceremony on 26 November 2010 (as Ryoma-Den is one of 4 teams chosen).
