I watch a lot of Japanese Drama so I am familiar with several of the actresses nominated below at the 44th Japan Academy Film Prize. I watched Nagasawa Masami in Sanada Maru and Our Little Sister. I watched Hirose Suzu for the first time in Our Little Sister as well.
Our Little Sister is one of the first Japanese films I enjoyed watching. I actually rewatch this film to see how much more Japanese I can comprehend.
Nagasawa Masami won her second consecutive Best Actress award.
