Beast of No Nation Tops them all with 10 awards Featured

Written by  Dec 31, 2015
Netflex feature film, Beast of No Nation swept 10 awards out of the 16 nominations at the 6th Ghana Movie Awards last night. The movie bagged 15 nominations after the list of nominees were announced by organizers of the event. This according to  industry players was an attempt to rob Ghanaian filmmakers since the movie was not a Ghanaian movie. But organizers prior to the event said because the movie was produced by a Ghanaian, it qualified to be a Ghanaian movie. However the Director of the movie Cary Fukunaga threatened a law suit against the organizers should they still go ahead with awarding the movie because they never submitted the movie for any nominations or award. Nontheless, the movie was able to sweep 10 awards including best director, discovery of the year [Abraham Attah], actor in leading role [Abraham Attah], cinematography among others. Aside Beast of No Nation, Yvonne Nelson’s film, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ also took home two awards for Best actress in leading role and best-supporting actress. Abdul Salam Mumuni’s film ‘Candle In the Wind’ and Nana Obiri Yeboh’s ‘The Cursed Ones’ did not get any award in any category at all, perhaps, next time.
