    Last Flight to Abuja as best cinematography??....That just makes the whole award judgement null and void.

    Good! I'm not the only one totally disappointed in the whole thing. At least there should have been a category for Lifetime Achievement Award, or Most Influential Person Award. The whole shindig just sucks. What a shame. I am totally, totally disappointed.

    I knew VB and Kala would be the first to complain about this because of that "Last Flight" cinematography win...

    I think the movie had a good premise but the execution just fell flat(for me). but I was judging on cinematography alone which it won the award for. A number of scenes were over exposed, some scenes the color was off, some of the green screen scenes were not properly keyed(this could have been the CGI experts fault or the cinematographer did not light the scene well when shooting against the screen). I think "The Meeting", that came out around the same time, was more beautifully shot than Last Flight, even though Last Flight was more ambitious.

    P.S. Na True VB talk, this film don old now.....

    They are desperately lacking in gravitas. If I'm organizing one of these award shows I know exactly whom to invite. I will also definitely give out a Life Time Achievement award.....to the right person of course.
