I didn't know she was in the Departures... I think shes a pretty good actress and its quite an accomplishment to at least be there. I know her career had been under the microscope over the years and sporatic since her pregnancy and divorce. Good luck to them.

Did anyone else see the Japanese Short animator win? "Domo arigato Mr. Robato!"





"Departures" stars Masahiro Motoki and Ryoko Hirosue depart for tonight's Oscars ceremony



by Chris MaGee

Well, it's the big night. Hot on the heels of their sweep of the 32nd Annual Japanese Academy Awards Masahiro Motoki (above right), Ryoko Hirosue (above left) along with director Yojiro Takita headed for the airport to attend the 81st Annual Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood this evening in hopes that their film "Departures (Okuribito)" will bring home a golden statuette for Best Foreign Language Film. It's not just the trio that are making the trip though. According to a report posted at Nikkan Sports joining Takita and his two stars will be 21 crew members from the film! Obviously they won't all be sitting in the audience eagerly awaiting to hear whose name is announced, but with 21 of them I have visions of them storming the stage in a clown car and jumping out and grabbing the Oscar if "Departures" doesn't win!

If "Departures" does win tonight it will be the first time since 1955 that a Japanese film has won the Best Foreign language Film Oscar. That honour went to Hiroshi Inagaki's "Samurai: The Legend of Mushashi Miyamoto" starring Toshiro Mifune; but even though I am obviously a rabid fan of Japanese cinema I am doubtful that tonight will be the night to break that 54 year drought... although I'd love to be proven wrong. We'll have to wait until tonight to find out for sure... and security will have to keep an eye out for that clown car packed with a Japanese film crew."
