NMJ Ghana, organisers of the Golden Movie Awards Africa (GMAA), have recently announced nominees for the 2017 edition of the awards at an event held at the Ibis Styles Hotel in Accra last Thursday 22 June 2017.
In an address before the announcement of the list, the director of the Golden Movie Awards Africa, Mimi Andani commended the jury led by Ghanaian veteran actress Grace Omaboe for a great work done. The work given to the jury had been done and that it is time to let the public know which movies as well as actors and actresses will be nominated for which category, she said.
It has been almost a month of very careful and great well done by the jury and they have come out with a list of nominees that we would like to share with the public.
Mimi Andani announced that the GMAA has entered into partnership with pan-continental television content management company African Movie Channel (AMC) to broadcast this years GMAA on multiple channels in 17 African countries and some European countries.
Some of the African countries in which the content will be broadcast are Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa, Zambia, Burundi, Ghana, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Congo DRC, Congo Brazzaville and Zimbabwe. The European countries include The UK, France, Germany, and The Netherlands.
Obviously, we are very excited about this partnership with AMC as it affords us the opportunity to send out content to many viewers across the continent.
She mentioned that the organisers were working towards producing a great show on 22 July when the final event of GMAA takes place. We have taken feedback from the previous event in good faith and although we had a great show last year, we intend to make it an even a greater show this year. Our event production partners E-volution International have assured us of a great show that all our guests would love, she assured.
She announced the ambassadors of the 2017 GMAA as Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari, Nigerian actress Lilian Esoro and Ghanaian/Greek actress Nikki Samonas. We believe that these three gorgeous and very talented actresses have what it takes to bring home the objective of the GMAA and to anchor the theme for the 2017 event Empowering the African Filmmaker very well
In a short address, the jury president, Madam Grace Omaboe thanked her fellow jury members and appealed to the film industry to accept the list of nominees as they had worked hard to ensure that those who deserved to be were nominated. She also appealed to the government to help save the film industry through very strong legislation.
