The AMAA awards


The answer to Nigeria's Oscar's has released it's list of nominees and as usual it is crap. What ever happened to Genevieve's performance in Silent Scandal, forget her performance for a second the movie itself didn't get recognized only that Chelsea chick got recognized and she didn't even get as much screen time as Genevieve at least she wouldn't have to bore herself at the event as the event is always a snoozefest for anyone who dares turn up. I agree with choice of Funlola Aoofiyebi-Raimi her performance in Figurine was amazing but please what the hell with this Nnenda film as in I have never even heard of half of the Nigerian films that were there. That Fiberesima woman needs to look at her list again and get her facts straight. There were better movies made in the past year that were not nominated. Plus like I said before the AMAA's are usually a snooze fest please try and get some interesting people to perform, Asa is still alive please call her for the sake of sanity or call Ibiyemi or Lami anyone other than than usually bland performers you usually bring. Before I end I'd like to say enough with the long speeches at the beginning last year Fiberesima's speech and the Governor's speech took so long I made noodles and fried plantain and they were still on after I had finished eating.
