Music plays a major role in One Piece Film Red, and the folks behind it have received the top special award from the Japan Academy Film Prize for their efforts. Believing them to have greatly contributed to the medium of Japanese film, the selection committee bestowed the movie’s music team with the Chairman’s Distinguished Service Award.
This particular award goes to people or groups who helped a film achieve an outstanding box office performance over the past year, and the Chairman of the committee considers the One Piece Film Red music team to have been instrumental to the film’s success.

One Piece Film Red is currently planning to end its record-breaking run in Japanese theaters on January 29.
Crunchyroll describes the feature like so:
Uta —the most beloved singer in the world. Renowned for concealing her own identity when performing, her voice has come to be described as “otherworldly.” Now, for the first time ever, Uta will reveal herself to the world at a live concert. As the venue fills with all kinds of Uta fans—excited pirates, the Navy watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance—the voice that the whole world has been waiting for is about to resound. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.
