In the 40th Japan Academy Prize, Shin Godzilla won 7 awards:
Picture of the Year, Director of the Year, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Lighting Direction, Best Sound Recording, and Best Film Editing
This movie is more about crisis management & politics rather than kaiju dancing & stomping around tokyo. Watch it with an understanding of japanese culture, ie inefficient bureaucracy, rigid mindset, slow decision making, seniority (senpai-ism), overly structured organization - then you'll be able to appreciate the story better. nice effects, background music & acting.. highly recommended.
