Film director Nobuhiko Obayashi (Shonen Keniya, live-action The Drifting Classroom) and actor Tetsuya Watari (Sangokushi [1]: Eiyū-tachi no Yoake) are among the three to receive a posthumous Leadership Special Award award for lifetime achievement. The Chairman of the Toei Group, Yusuke Okada, will also receive a Special Award from the Association.

The Nippon Academy-Sho Association, a Japanese group roughly equivalent to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science of Oscars in America, presents the Japan Academy Film Prizes every year. All nominations receive the "Awards of Excellence", but the highest award in each category will be awarded at a ceremony on March 19 at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa in Tokyo.

A film is eligible if it opens in Japan between December 16, 2019 and December 15, 2020.

Previously, the award in this category was won by Weathering With You / Tenki no Ko.
