The fact that Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu won nothing is just wrong.

Your name still stronk in Japan. Not even surprised.
So happy to see Houchuu Ootsuka winning the Best Supporting Actor award. That man has an awesome voice.

However, I would have liked that Takahiro Sakurai would have received an award. The guy has been in pretty much everywhere this last year, while performing awesome roles as Reigen or Rohan.

At least Yuusuke Kobayashi won something. I was hoping for him to win the Best Actor for his Subaru's performance.

Minami Tanaka needs more roles badly. I'm glad she got an award though.

IKR! The roles in Shouwa Genroku actually challenge the seiyuu's voice acting skills, and they did splendid, especially Ishida Akira.

No big names huh? Even Kamiya Hiroshi didn't win anything like he did every year... Also Kamiki Ryunosuke isn't seiyuu but an actor. My point is, there are many voice actors that have been in this industry for years and NOT A SINGLE known voice actor deserved any awards but one person that isn't in this industry as a real voice actor did.

This years' awards must be a joke seriously. I'm highly disappointed with this. Also, there are many newcomers/inexperienced names in here. Don't want to sound like an arrogant elitist or anything but still...

Anyway i'm so happy to see a veteran like Houchuu Ootsuka at least. :)

Hochu Otsuka, Ryusei Nakao (best seiyu for evil characters ever), and Sumi Shimamoto are the only people I care for on this list, and all these others are...

No idea who they are.

Both the best actor/actress are merely lucky. Had voicing over Kimi no Na wa is enough to make them the best actor/actress.

For other winners, I think they deserve, especially Houchuu Ootsuka-san.

Aside from the Best Actor/Actress award, the rest of the winners are all well deserved.

Also, it's pretty strange that Kamiyan's award suddenly disappeared from the event...

I thought Ari Ozawa already won that award because of Nozaki-kun. It's expected for Senbongi to win because of Kabaneri of course. Also, it's expected for Kimi no na wa MC's to win.
The formula for winning Seiyu awards is to land a big role in a successful show, and deliver your voice acting to a minimum requirement and not mess it up. Or land a big role in a show that became successful mainly because of your eye-catching attention-grabbing very effective voice acting. Also, that show must be KADOKAWA or Shogakukan related, haha, just kidding!

He's done. He's already a hall of famer so he can't win that award anymore.
Also Kamiki Ryunosuke isn't seiyuu but an actor. My point is, there are many voice actors that have been in this industry for years and NOT A SINGLE known voice actor deserved any awards but one person that isn't in this industry as a real voice actor did.
This is an award for those who voice act, I believe. And Ryunosuke (and Non and Kamishiraishi), even though not "real" voice actors, are doing voice acting job. Even a singer (Sayaka Kanda) won a best actress award before.
This years' awards must be a joke seriously. I'm highly disappointed with this. Also, there are many newcomers/inexperienced names in here. Don't want to sound like an arrogant elitist or anything but still...
I know what you feel. Your favorites don't win. But the seiyuu awards is already like this before. There's nothing new. It's mostly driven by hype. And the first round of the selection process is actually public voting. I even feel that this is a good way of "money-grabbing" since KADOKAWA publishes the winners on their mag (I believe, not verified fact yet) and featuring hottest persons in 2016 get sale boost. Both KADOKAWA and consumers are happy.

That's not the reason which i'm sad about, at least expected one well-known seiyuu could win as "Best Actor" anyway :/

My bad.
From what I observed, that's not how Seiyuu Awards work, unfortunately. Even the very popular seiyuu Kana Hanazawa won only once (supporting role) but a singer who is not really a voice actress won a best actress award. For somebody to have a higher chance of winning, he/she has to be lucky enough to get a role in a show that will really hit, and do his/her job at least ok. If Kimi no Na wa didn't exist, I think Yusuke Kobayashi will win because of Re:Zero.
It's not ideal, but personally it's still within my low standards.

That's really sad to see Shouwa getting no recognition in these awards :c

I think it was perfect for this category

... not even one seiyuu from Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu won anything... here i'm hoping Ishida Akira will win or at least one of the seiyuu from that anime.. ahh.. maybe coz that anime is not so popular they overlook it... I see this kind of pattern in seiyuu awards since long ago.
anyway, congratz to the winners..
