What could conceivably have been more important than this ceremony?

actress Umika Kawashima, 16 (special judges’ award)

What makes these judges so special? Their choice looks like a perfectly normal one for middle-aged suits.

The circus is in town! Yoko Ono mops the floor with that Rinka chick in the sunglasses category.

Well, the judges are all made of fail then.

The glasses on all of them look stupid or just normal. The thick-framed ones that Hoshino and Miyakawa make them look like they're trying to be cool and failing badly.

Why didn't they call it "Best Eyeist"?

Rinka is one of the most unattractive personalities. Right behind Marie.

Horrid, bleh, nothing special, get a hair cut and get rid of the awful cammies and he'll look OK, kinda cute in a kogaru sort of way...

These are some of the worst dressed people I have ever seen. What is going on? Yes. The glasses are terrible.

I like Rinka's shoes, but her sunglasses are way out of fashion.Umika's glasses are the best in the selection(for me).

This is what's wrong with Japan! Who in blazes cares about how these nutty geeks dress or how their glasses look on them. I mean, honestly. They ALL look horrible-period!!! How about these people focus on real serious issues that affect the country and our daily lives!

Rinka`s sunglasses looks like a UFO object on her face. Hahahhaha. I would never wear those sunglasses at all.

Cool!?!? Where? Who? I don't see anything 'cool' about any of these, especially the dork in the camo suit! The lengths the Japanese will go to for entertainment never cease to amaze me. If escapism was an illness the whole population would be hospitalized!

I think a guy in an Armani camo-suit would be the first to bite the dust on a battlefield.

Another day, another fashion award. By sometime next week, everyone in Japan will have won an award. I guess the trophy business must be going strong these days.

Dan Rather once said, "News is something someone doesn't want you to know. Everything else is marketing".

I bet they all dropped those heavy useless awards in the garbage on the way out, or they can be found in the toilets down the hall. 16? Try 12

Silly glasses are popular all over Asia. Rinka and Diasuke take the biscuit in this particular line up.

@shogun36: I couldn't agree with you more. They have no redeeming qualities in my eyes.

I suppose we all agree... Nobody looks good in this picture, haha. And yeah, I totally second an earlier comment-- Only in Japan!

And sitting next to this prestigious award on their home mantle is an award for achievement in their chosen field of work, not... Well maybe Tokumitsu has some meaningful awards

We have a hunter who cant see. A business woman with an airplane (or UFO) on her face. A business man with near invisible glasses. Some guy who is more interested in the bug on the carpet than the camera, and a 30 year old school girl.

Uniqlo must have had a closeout sale this week.

Good god... someone needs their eyes checked to vote these people

This is a spoof, right? No way these five clowns were actually picked for looking good in glasses. Could be a new low, even by Japanese PR standards.

Rinka didn't get an award ribbon/flower... How sad :(

I wonder if the awards will be found on Yahoo auctions?

meloveu -- She's 16 for pity sake. Get a grip. Wait four more years before you "take" her.

These people weren't picked for how well they dress or how good they look. They were picked because they are famous people well-known for wearing glasses, especially that ugly comedian, Miyagawa. Of course you wouldn't know this if you don't watch Japanese TV.
