Ouch. He couldn't miss a few hours to attend the most important award of his life? WITH THE EMPEROR? Kudos, man. I can't predict you.

Well, given that this is the sort of work that he is receiving the award for, I guess they will understand. Still, even in this day and age, its a pretty bold thing to stand up the leader of your country.

In earlier times, he would have been forced to commit sepuku for this type of insolence.

Wow, one thing is skipping the Oscars for "moral" ideology ( which I find hypocritical really, else he would actually do something for the dying industry and low wages and mistreatment of animators. Just saying.)
But skipping tea and ceremony with the Royal family is just #RUDE. He might be talented, but he is really conceited. The success has really gone up his head :/

Royal family has no power, they are just normal humans.

I am sorry to say i am very disappointed in this bad behaviour. There is no excuse..he could have taken a little time to show respect. Not a good thing.

Those people took time and money out of their own schedules, and Miyazaki threw it back in their faces.

Conceited...

Very well off, respected, and likely still somewhat revered humans. You don't see much in the way of anime or manga that poke fun of them harshly, while they lambast and berate politicians. Leaders of foreign nations meet with the Emperor and his family, and Miyazaki doesn't quite have that prestige himself. Perhaps he's met the Emperor many times and didn't feel like this particular occasion was necessary, or maybe he really couldn't leave work due to circumstances that would keep severely hinder his next work, and wasn't just him drawing more planes and plain girls. I hope it wasn't the latter.

He'd be too busy with work to attend, and would send someone else to commit it for him.

It's Japan. They'll commend his work ethic.

No class.

It's funny - for some reason, I keep on forgetting that Japan actually has an emperor.

Well, there's two reasons I think would make sense --- either he's gotten to that age where he doesn't care much about social stigma anymore and shrugged off the ceremony like he would any other, or his age has him concerned that he doesn't have many years left to work in animation and he decided to give his work the higher priority (sort of a passion similar to Osamu Tezuka in his later years). There's also the possibility that he wanted to make a point that the award doesn't mean anything to him (maybe it was previously received by someone he disliked, or maybe he's just pretentious when it comes to awards), or he may have a grudge against the Emperor that no one's aware of. He might have also seen the Emperor frequently in recent years, and figured they would understand him missing the ceremony in view of his workload.
