Anime Awards: Charts 2.0

with 2 comments

Last updated March 2015 (Tokyo Anime Award).


Thanks to some discussion about the previous charts I made some big changes:

– On the previous version, I based the hierarchy by giving points to each award and then adding them up. On this version, the quantity of higher tier awards dictates the positioning. If there is a tie, I compared the number of their next tier awards. This way, newer studios/directors don’t benefit as much as before from the greater amount of awards that exist nowadays.

– Awards in the same tier are now arranged from oldest one received to newest.

Mainichi Animation Grand Award and the Japan Academy Prize – Animation of the Year were downgraded because there needed to exist a contrast between competing against animations only and competing against movies in general.

Animation Kobe Awards were downgraded to group all domestic anime festival awards in just one tier.

– All excellence awards have been removed. Just being nominated is not enough.

– The color boxes are now wider so that titles aren’t broken into two lines. It made it look like a director/studio has more awards than he/it really had.

– Other minor fixes.

Now the lowest tier is mainly for domestic animation festival awards. The second lowest tier is mainly for animation awards in national film festivals. The middle tier is for domestic best film awards (not animation only) and some international awards. The second highest tier is for the two top domestic animation awards and the four top ASIFA (Association Internationale du Film d’Animation) awards. The uppermost tier is for the international awards in important film festivals when competing against movies in general, not just animation.
