As with my question regarding Godzilla movies, so it is with Gamera. Which of his films made the most yen? And which, if any, won awards? I'm asuming G3 got something, as a preview bousted that the film would 'go in history of Japanese SFX'.

No actual awards that I'm aware of, except the loyalty of all who have watched

For GAMERA GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE, Kaneko won "1995 Best Director Award" at the Yokohama Film Festival and the Blue Ribbon Director Award. GAMERA 2 won "Japanese Best Science Fiction Award" from (I believe) the acclaimed film magazine Kinema Jumpo.
