#AMAA2017 : Check Out The Nomination List For The Film Awards

Peter Sedufia’s widely-received period piece Keteke has secured nominations in Best Comedy and Costume Design at this year’s Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).

Mainly starring esteemed actors Adjetey Anang and Lydia Forson, it is among a handful of Ghanaian projects up for awards this year –the others being On Monday Last Week, and Black Barbie. Actor Majid Michel is also up for the prize of Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his effort on Slow Country.

The premiere of Keteke back in March saw thousands in attendance at the Accra Mall and West Hill Mall.
Set in the 80s, Keteke tells the story of BOI (Adjetey Anang) and ATWEI (Lydia Forson) who are “bent on delivering their first baby in Akete but misses their first train. A wrong decision finds them in the middle of nowhere. Will they make it on time for the delivery, or, risk losing the baby and mother?”

Released under OldFilm, the movie (also starring Fred Amugi, Joseph Otsiman, Clement Suarez, Raymond Sarfo, and General Natia) discusses the themes of love, among other aspects of society in a way that is both compelling and humorous.

The nominations were on Sunday announced by Bernie Goldblat, president of the AMAA jury, in Kigali, Rwanda.

This year, a total of thirty categories are up for grabs by Africa’s leading actors.

Vaya, a South African movie directed by Nigerian Akin Omotoso, has been nominated in ten categories after Vaya, historical Nigerian drama, ’76, got the most nominations with eight.

Ugandan movie about local chess champions, Queen of Katwe which stars Lupita Nyong’o, was also nominated in eight categories.
93 Days, a movie about the 2014 Ebola crisis in Nigeria, earned seven nominations.

Oloibiri was also nominated in seven categories while action flick Slow Country got four.
