Leiji Matsumoto is still relevant even he hasn't made any new anime for recent years other than Yamato remake?

There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

I would like to hear Nozawa's performance (didn't even know she was in this movie).
Was this award given to Leiji Matsumoto for his career, his Galaxy Express animation works or a certain movie?

@Sazanami-kai Matsumoto had no hand in this remake. It is a project from the Yamato "main creator" 's son.
By the way, theoretically, Matsumoto participated only to designs and not more for the original saga (in reality, he suggested several changes compared to the creator/producer's original ideas).

I heard good things about Koe no Katachi (movie) recently. Going to watch it pretty soon. Happy to see it getting the award though since I've enjoyed the manga.
