Lydia Forson, Jackie Appiah And Naa Ashorkor From Perfect Picture

The prestigious Screen Nation Awards slated for 16th October, 2011 at the O2 Indigo, London will honour some of the best African Entertainers for their excellent contribution to the African Movie Industry…

Ghanaian star Actress Jackie Appiah and Ama Konadu Abebrese have been nominated alongiside Nollywood heavy weights like Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Mercy Johnson and Funke Akindele to compete for this year’s   ‘Favourite West African Actress’  Award. This looks really tough!

John Dumelo and Majid Michel from Ghana have also been nominated to face Osita Iheme, Ramsey Nouah, Mike Ezuruonye and Hakeem Kae Kazim for the ‘Favourite West African Actor’ Award. I will be extremely shocked if Majid Michel does not carry this one…

The all time Ghanaians favourite and multiple award winning ‘Perfect Picture‘ by ace Director-Shirley Frimpong Manso  will compete with ‘Sinking Sands’, Ije’, ‘The Mirror Boy’, ‘Inale’ and ‘The Figurine’ for the ‘Favourite West African Film’ Award.

The UK’s Screen Nation Awards  have in the past nominated and honoured individuals like Horace Ove, Will Smith, Eamonn Walker, Spike Lee, Danny Glover, Floella Benjamin, Angela Bassett, Nia Long, Rudolph Walker, Queen Latifah, Naomie Harris, Martina Laird, John Barnes, Don Gilet, Mark Norfolk, Wil Johnson, Kwame Kwei Armah, Pam Grier, Adam Deacon, John Akomfrah and others.

Hollywood entertainers like Denzel Washington, Anthony Mackie, Hill Harper, Michael K. Williams, Tyler Perry and others have also been nominated for this year’s Screen Nation Awards…

GhanaCelebrities.Com says big congrats to all the Africa nominees especially those from Ghana! Better go and bring the awards or else….

  1. MAJID MICHEL IS THE BEST ACTOR IN WEST AFRICA HANDS DOWN
    I HOPE JACKIE WINS.
    AND PERFECT PICTURE BETTER WIN.. THATS A CLASSIC EVEN THOUGH I HAVENT WATCHED SINKING SANDS YET OR IJE .. I ALSO WISH AMA K LUCK TO WIN. SHES GREAT.

    1. @JONJON, My favourite Shirley Movies in order is
      1. A Sting IN A Tale / 2. The Perfect Picture / 3. Checkmate / 4. Life & Living It / 5. 6 Hours 2 Christmas / 6. Scorned … Majid is surely the best actor.. Actress side will be interesting. Hope Jackie or Ama win.

  2. I will put my bet on Jackie Appiah and Perfect Picture to win. I won’t be so surprise if Genevieve wins too. Congrats to all the nominees though

  3. Go Jackie and Ama. I wont the Ghana nominees to beat all the Nollywood guys. Ghana movie rocks now and Shirley still rules with the Perfect picture

  4. Aww, congrats to jackie n the rest, jackie keep the accolades coming n keep shining. I luv perfect picture btw, one of my sparrow prod. favorite, hope it wins.

    1. @miss dior,
      hope PERFECT PICTURE wins too, that one, 6 hours to christmas, and a sting in the tale r my fav sparrow movies.

  5. having watched all da movies nominated, I am surprised perfect picture is there because it is the weakest movie among all da others  though very popular among Ghanaians. What happened to anchor baby? congrats to da nominees. Genevieve and Mirror boy will be taking these awards. m betting on dat.  

    1. @aisha,Agreed,i thought sinking sands was better than perfect picture….but since it has been nominated,i hope either of the Ghanaian movies  win!!! But hey the other movies are also equally good Ije ,Figurine,Mirror boy…very good strorylines………

  6. congrats to all of them…well i hope Ama K wins because she seems to be a serious actress especially staring in leila’s movie…but then again, i dnt think the awards are gonna be based on who is a serious actor/actress…looks to me that it will be based on strictly favoritism….goodluck to all of them especially gh…make us proud

  7. i hope Genevieve wins because shes obviously the best west african actress by far..shes really good n she deserves to win..

  8. thought i was the only lily…chris something def. gotta be done abt this…anywayz my vote is still on Ama K….i dnt like her like that but I still think she should win

  9. how can jackie be selected by a whoever for a movie that has won an award for 3 ACTRESESS already? from the hundreds of movies shes done ,none except perfect picture can be chosen , hm i always say this girl follow QUANTITIES NOT QUALITY .All the best AMA
