The 30th January 2010 marked the 57th anniversary of television broadcast in Japan. Once more Oricon Style stepped in to create a poll in celebration of this occasion. People could submit their votes on those celebrities who they feel made the most contribution to television.

Kimura Takuya from SMAP, nicknamed as Kimutaku was the winner in the actor category. In fact, ever since 1993’s Asunaro Hakusho, Kimutaku has had a string of hit dramas, including memorable roles in Long Vacation and Beautiful Life. He is very deserving of the award.

In the singer’s category, ‘Showa’s Songstress’ Misora Hibari was voted first. In the comedian category, Downtown, the comedic duo comprised of Matsumoto Hitoshi and Hamada Masatoshi placed first. Many voters even complimented them for being revolutionaries in the comedy world. The most contribution by a television host went to Tamori, the host of two long-running television shows, Music Station and Waratte Iitomo.
