South Africa’s feature film, ‘Surviving Gaza,’ and Ghana’s ‘Borga’ have received the most nominations in the 2022 Africa Movie Academy Awards.
Both films were nominated in 14 of AMAAs’ 26 categories.
Shaibu Husseini revealed this on behalf of Keith Shiri, the president of the AMAA 2022 Jury, at a media event on Wednesday.
The event, which had the founder and CEO of AMAA, Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, in attendance, was held at the Radisson Hotel in Ikeja, GRA, Lagos.
The award show, which holds in Lagos on 30 October, aims to recognise and celebrate the African visual and storytelling creative industry.
Speaking at the event, Ms Anyiam-Osigwe said AMAA isn’t a popular voting film and movie award ceremony but an awards ceremony strategically created to reward and celebrate professionalism in film and filmmaking across all spectra.
The organisers said the nomination was obtained from 362 entries pruned to 100 after screening.
With 26 categories, Mr Husseini Husseini also revealed that the Jury sat for over ten days for selection in Documentary films, animations, features and short stories.
The organisers revealed that Nigerian movies dominated 47 per cent of feature movies submission and 50 per cent of short films.
Kunle Afolayan’s 2021 Netflix title ‘Swallow’, Bolanle Austen Peters’ ‘Man of God’ on Netflix original, and Walter Waltbanger Taylaur’s ‘Jolly Roger’ are top Nigerian contenders.
Osas Ighodaro, Deyemi Okanlawon, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Daniel Etim, Akah Nnani, Dorcas Shola-Fapson, Chibuike Josh Alfred popularly known as ‘Josh2funny’ were nominated in different categories.
Apart from the Nigerian contenders, other African nations like Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana, and Senegal pulled weight on the nomination list.
Tanzania’s ‘Tug of war’ follows closely with 12 nominations, while Uganda’s ‘Tembele’ and Nigeria’s ‘Man of God’ packed nominations in nine categories. Nigeria’s ‘Jolly Roger’ also followed with nominations in eight different categories, while Kunle Afolayan’s ‘Swallow’ earned itself nominations in seven categories.
