No nominations for LTAS ?:confused:

My hearty congrats go to DS for three nominations in her very first production.
Weldone,girl!grinning:
I thought LTAS should at least been nominated for best screenplay but who knows maybe it wasnt submitted, dont know their criteria for choosing movies this year.

Or maybe it came out too late,because the other flicks nominated were released much earlier.Perhaps it will get a nomination next year.

I doubt if its cos it was released late. White waters hasn't been released yet it had some nominations, still i don't believe LTAS was submitted and would not be shortlisted.

Africa Movie Academy Awards Nominees

The nominees of the 2008 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) were announced to a large gathering of African film industry representatives at a glitzy evening function at Moyo in Johannesburg on Wednesday 19 March.

The African Movie Academy Awards, which take place in Bayelsa State, Nigeria on 26 April 2008, were created to celebrate excellence in African film as well as set up supportive structures and networking opportunities for African filmmakers. In the four years of AMAA's existence, the Awards have recognised filmmakers, actors, directors, producers, make-up artists and other film industry role players from around the African continent.

"When we first began AMAA, many regarded it as a Nigerian awards ceremony," said Peace Anyiam-Fiberesima, co-founder and executive producer of the AMAA's. "In the past three years, we've managed to increase entries from more African countries. This year's entries were also quite encouraging in that respect – we are clearly on a growth spurt! However, there is still a long way to go – considering that we have more than 50 African nations. We're not putting out nearly enough movies – we're doing more about the politics of film rather than filmmaking, and it's important for Africa to look at the financial rewards for filmmaking as there is no proper distribution process across the continent.

"Indeed the range and subject matter of the nominated films reflect the African experience in all its glory, pain and humour - collectively, the nominated movies are a real representation of the African story – submissions from Uganda, Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, Senegal, Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia, as well as films from the African diaspora such as Brazil and the United States all reflected the multiplicity of the African experience."

South Africa's strongest showings in 2008 was in the documentary section, a credit to the strong tradition of documentary filmmaking in South Africa.

Its good 30days was nominated. If it does win some, it would help in sales when it eventually come out,at least when Irapada won the award for indeginous film, many of my friends who dont even see nollywood film wanted to see it, though they were disappointed.
I have been hearing about this film for so long... When is it coming out? Havent people had it on order for over a year?

Then it means that it was not submitted.I wonder why.
Thats what i think too, cos they had some good kid actors i expected to see in the Best child category. Sometimes might be that they werent aware when submission was going on, and who knows might have been submitted and didnt just make the list. U never can tell with these dem awards, it must get K-leg.

AMAA nominations outNkem Owoh, St. Obi, Kenneth Okonkwo, jostle for Best Actor

Written by fred Iwenjora
Saturday, 12 April 2008
Whitewaters, the blockbuster second movie produced by Amstel Malta, the low sugar malt drink is on the threshold of making another history going by the nominations for the movie in this year edition of the African Movie Academy Awards, AMAA, scheduled to hold April 26, 2008.
Also Nigerian actors have topped the list of those likely to win the Best Actor category.

They include Nkem Owoh in the film, Stronger than Pain, St. Obi (Check Point); Kenneth Okonkwo (African Soldier); Kanayo .O. Kanayo (Across the Niger) and OC Ukeje (White Water). Others are Van Vicker (Return of Beyoncé) and Kofi Buknor (Run Baby Run)

The list of nominations released by event organizers show that the movie is being nominated for 12 awards.

The nominations are for Best Child Actor; Best Lead Actor; Best Male Supporting Actor; Best Female Supporting Actress and Best Upcoming Actor.

Other nominations are for Best Arts Direction; Best Screen Play, Best Director; Best Sound and Best Cinematography.

If it picks this awards, Whitewaters, featuring Okechukwu Ukeje, winner of the second edition of Amstel Malta Box Office, AMBO, would be following in the footsteps of SITANDA, the first AMBO movie which picked 5 awards in the 2007 edition of AMAA. SITANDA, the first movie produced by Amstel Malta featuring the winner of Amstel Malta Box Office Reality television show, had 8 nominations but, won 5 awards in the 2007 edition of AMAA.

Directed by Izu Ojukwu, the award winning Nollywood movie Director who also directed SITANDA and won Best Movie Director in 2007, Whitewaters, co-starring renowned movie actress, Joke Silva and, Nollywood superstar, Rita Dominic, is a classic story of lost hope, tough life and something to prove.

It is the story of Melvin (Okechukwu Ukeje, winner of Amstel Malta Box Office AMBO2) who seems to be a slow and dim witted lad but, in him, lurks a gem that the local athletics coach is able to unlock. It is the story of a young lad, trapped in a world of repulsion and condemned to the pangs of loneliness but, rises above these impediments to excel in life. .

Meanwhile, the Best Actress category are Stella Damasus Aboderin (Widow); Kate Henshaw-Nuttal (Stronger than Pain/Rivals); Dakore Egbosan (Caught in the Middle); Geneve Nnaji (30 Days/Keep My Will); Rakiya Atta(Across the Niger) and Jakie Apea (Princess Tyra).

Jostling for Best Director are Mildred Okwo (30 Days); Emmanuel Apea (Run baby Run); Frank Rajah Erafe (Princess Tyra); Izu Ojukwu/Kingsley Ogoro (Across the Niger); Bond Emeruwa (Check Point); Teco Benson (Mission to Nowhere); Ifeanyi Onueabor (New Jerusalem); Daniel Adenimokan (Black Friday/Onitemi) and Chris Etonue (Through the Fire)

The star prize of Best Picture will be contested by 30 days, Across the Niger, Princess Tyra, Mission to Nowhere, Run Baby Run, New Jerusalem, Through the Fire, and Check Point.
