In an award ceremony on Friday, February 27, 2015, the Japan Academy Prize Association announced Stand By Me Doraemon as the winner of the Animation of the Year award.

The movie was nominated alongside Omoide no Marnie, Giovanni no Shima, Detective Conan Movie 18: The Sniper from Another Dimension, and Tezuka Osamu no Buddha: Owarinaki Tabi.

Eien no 0, based on a novel of the same name, which was also adapted as a manga series, won the award for Picture of the Year. It won a total of nine awards, the most of any nominee.

Composers Joe Hisaishi (Mononoke Hime) and Naoki Sato (Eureka Seven) were nominated for awards for music in non-anime titles, but neither won.

The second and third live-action movie adaptations of the manga Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan won the All Night Nippon prize for best movie, as voted by listeners of the radio program.

I just saw the trailer, I swear Doraemon has left Nobito once already? Is this movie a summary?

Really good news. Doraemon has always been something unique, gathering appeal from people of all ages and striking a chord with all of them.It was the anime that began my foray into anime and later, manga.Very well deserved.
The brilliant 3D animation deserves special commendation because its been executed so well.

Pretty well-deserved. Stand by me Doraemon has to be the best anime film i've seen in such a long time. Mostly because it shed a lot of light for Nobita's characterizations and makes him a sympathetic character, as opposed to his usual loser and pathetic depictions. And God that ending totally made me cry.

Joe Hisaishi should win automatically without any competition being held.
