Hayao Miayazaki to Receive the Los Angeles Film Critics Association’s Career Achievement Award

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) has announced that it will grant a Career Achievement Award to anime director Hayao Miayazaki. The organization’s annual awards dinner will take place at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, California on January 12, 2019.

LAFCA president Claudia Puig explained in announcing the honor, “The way in which Miyazaki inspires an audience’s sense of wonder is unmatched. I particularly admire his depiction of self-sufficient, determined and courageous female characters who don’t need saving. He has explained his cinematic approach simply: ‘Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.’ These words resonate more powerfully than ever in our current times.”
