One might be left to think, with sponsors such as Joy Dadi, KIA motors, Kempinski Hotel, etc. this year’s Ghana movie awards would be upgraded compared to recent years where producers have lambasted the award scheme.
The C.E.O Fred Nuamah always seem to come out with flimsy excuses during these periods but after the Jury(if only there is one) came out with yet another questionable nominations, actors, actresses, producers, directors, fans and all aspects of the showbiz business have come out to criticize this year’s nominations.
Who would’ve thought “Beasts of no nation” would top the nomination list at the Ghana Movie awards, and who would have also thought, Idris Elba would be nominated for “best supporting actor”, I can go on and on.
I actually saw a post by bigspoofs.com that read, Cary Fukunaga has pulled Beasts of No Nation out of African awards and has threatened to sue.
It all started with the superstars who featured in the photo shoot, I can’t actually remember their faces, in fact, i don’t even know them. Whiles some actresses such as Princess Shyngle, etc rejoice for their nomination, they refuse to acknowledge whatever is going on.
Actor Prince David Osei, Yvonne Nelson, Enoch Atakorah, Eddie Nartey among others have expressed their disgust about this year’s movie awards nomination. There might have obviously been some sabotage when the Golden Movie Awards was held for the first time months ago in Ghana but i do hope and pray we see a far more better and improved version of theirs in the next edition and then the rest will be a story for the gods.
There was a lengthy argument between Eddie Nartey(Director) and Ama K. Abebrese as well as producers of “Beasts of no nation” yesterday at the nominees announcement at the silverbird cinema, Accra mall which almost resulted in a fight over the nominations.
Prince David(not in Ghana At the moment) and Yvonne Nelson, though nominated, are not happy. Checkout some of the comments as well as letters to Ghana movie awards members below…
