Japanese Director’s Anime Film ‘Mirai’ Gets Historic Oscar Award Nomination

Anime is making its return at the Academy Awards this year with the nomination of director Mamoru Hosoda’s film “Mirai” for the “Best Animated Feature Oscar.”

Hosoda, the visionary filmmaker behind “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time,” “Wolf Children,” and “The Boy and the Beast,” among others, has achieved something remarkable; Mirai is the first ever non-Studio Ghibli anime to be nominated.
