Kaze TachinuJapan­ese direc­tor Hayao Miyazaki’s new film Kaze Tach­inu (The Wind Rises) has walked away with the New York Film Crit­ics Circle’s award for best ani­mated film of the year. The film is also a nom­i­nee for best ani­mated fea­ture from ASIFA-Hollywood’s Annie Award.

Miyazaki has gone on to win the biggy– the Oscar– for 2001’s Sen To Chi­hiro No Kamikakushi (Spir­ited Away). While the New York Film Crit­ics Cir­cle award is very pres­ti­gious, it has never proven to be a good pre­dic­tor of the year’s Oscar win­ner. In the last twelve years, the New York Film Crit­ics Cir­cle has only picked 4 films that went on to win the Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Acad­emy Award.

Miyazaki’s 2008  Gake No Ue No Ponyo (Ponyo On The Cliff) was thought to be his last as direc­tor. Hayao Miza­yaki wrote or co-wrote all three films.
