The awards ceremony, which will reveal the full list of awardees, will be held at the Bunka Hōsō Media Plus Hall on March 9. Starting in 2017, the Special Merit Award, which honors deceased voice actors and actresses who have contributed to many genres, was replaced with an honoring of all voice actors and actresses who passed away in the previous year.
This year, the awards are introducing four new categories, which include "Foreign Movie/Series Award," "Game Award," "Influencer Award," and "MVS (Most Valuable Seiyū)."
The organizers previously revealed the intermediate results of the MVS poll last September, with the poll resulting in Hiroshi Kamiya coming in first, with Mamoru Miyano and Tomoaki Maeno in second and third place, respectively.
