Actor Omotola Is Not Happy That No African Movie Made It To The OSCARS 2019

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Nollywood actress and voting member of the Oscars, says she’s isn’t so happy that no African movie made it to the 2019 Oscars nomination list.





The 40-year-old Nollywood star, who was enlisted into the voting membership of the Oscar Awards in 2018, made the disclosure in an Instagram post where she conveyed her thoughts on the nominated movies.

While she expressed her happiness on the fact that a great deal of the movies she voted were picked, the actor was concerned that no African movie made it to the list.

“So glad most of the movies I nominated made it,” she said.
“Wasn’t so excited no African movie made it!”

Jalade-Ekeinde was, however, enthusiastic and convinced that the situation would change for the better in the coming years.

“Someday soon we will be doing this for Africans,” she added.

Jalade-Ekeinde isn’t the only Nigerian who was invited to join the Oscar awards voters in 2018. Femi Odugbemi, a filmmaker, was also invited.

    1. Stop body shaming miss perfect. On another note, which Nigerian film will they nominate for the OSCARS? It is " watch this movie and you will never stop crying, ezendiala season 1 to 10, poor servant girl who rejected a billionaire proposal". African film industry should get creative first.

      A south african movie has won best foreign language oscar, in 2005,Tsotsi.
      I feel like we don't really celebrate real talent in Nigeria,music and movies. Seun Kuti just for nominated for a Grammy, how many Nigerians celebrate his music?its the same thing for the movies...Until we begin to encourage genuine talent, we better forget it.

      PS Rolling my eyes at Omotola

      Tuck your snout back into your head.
      OBVIOUSLY for her to wish African movies were nominated means that during the voting process the ones she submitted were not uninamously approved.
      If you don't know something, SHUT UP AND LEARN. Instead of forming like someone who wants to school your head.
      Mtshweeeeeeeeeeeeew.

    7. Indirectly throwing shade at lion heart.... Sip my kunu....

    8. @010:50. You are the who should tuck in your smelly dirty snout. Insulting someone for daring to have another opinion?
      You are obviously deranged and unfitbto be released into the society. Look at this blonde beach forming what not. If you read her own post, you wouldnt be here sounding all stupid and jealous. She clearly said sge hopes in the COMING years the story will change. I dont expect you to understand that it means African movies will improve. I dont expect you to. You prolly schooled in a 3rd grade school in a 3rd world country.
      Go ahead. Bash what you dont understand or what threatens you. At your age, you cant bring proper arguement to the table. Ranting like a rabid dog on heat. Your president fits you all.
      Stella, post my comment oo.

  5. What movies do we act again in Africa? Is it their repetitive stories, or the poor effect, noise they make in the name of dialogue or their untrained cast that wants to be nominated?.
    Lets be real,Nollywood needs alot of work to be done in the industry if they want to get to the Oscars, the mediocre movies they make wont take them there.

  14. Genevieve fans are insecure bigots. What if she wished lion's heart was approved? where you there. Did you know the movies she submitted? Why are Nigerians so backwards like this? how is this a shade. Is Genevieve the first person to produce movies? SHE SAID AFRICAN MOVIE NOT NIGERIAN. Are South Africans and Ghanians not there?

  17. How can she be shading Genevieve . Lionheart can’t be nominated for now as it was not released within the period for Oscar nomination . Maybe next years oscar. My Nigerian people make ena try dey read no be everything be shade. Check the movies nominated and see when it was released .

    1. The Oscar will be for a movie in a foreign language. Lionheart is predominantly English.

      Delete
  18. Yes, Lionheart was released 3 weeks ago. I was disappointed by this movie considering all the hype. Genevieve is a beauty but her acting is not up to the same standard as her American counterparts—since she doesn’t really acknowledge her Nigerian counterparts. There are child actors with more charisma and presence on the screen. She is just there..

    ReplyDelete
  19. Genevieve wants to be on the same level with the American actors but her acting cannot be compared to theirs at all. She is still on the Nollywood level for sure.

  20. Please you guys should leave my Genny alone and face your own hustle, she has a special grace from God! Carry go Genny, more grace on all your hustle!

  21. Can someone tell me if the Netflix you watch in Nigeria is different? Its not only Lionheart on Netflix from Nigeria. The one we watch in America. I don't know the story about Netflix "buying" it for $3m but the Netflix we watch in my home has almost 30 Nigerian movies, October 1, Wedding Party 1, etc. Where is this story of Netflix paying for it coming from? as Netflix released any statement to that effect? Maybe like yahoo home page and some pages your Netflix is different but I watched movies by Uche Jombo, Adesuwa's earlier movies etc on my laptop Netflix and there are MANY Nigerian movies there not just Lionheart which is overhyped btw. I watched it and the bar we set for ourselves is so low we think others should reward our mediocrity. They won't.
