Wow! The Oscars rejigs board for Nigerian film entries

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has reconstituted a 12-man committee of Nollywood stakeholders ahead of the 2020 Academy Awards, popularly called The Oscars.


Comprising old and young Nollywood stakeholders, the newly constituted Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee (NOSC) is headed by pioneer member, Chineze Anyaene as Chairman.
Other members are: Mildred Okwo, Mahmood Ali-Balogun, Ngozi Okafor, Charles Novia, Abba Makama, Bruce Ayonote, Ramsey Nouah, Chioma Ude, Shaibu Husseini, Adetokunbo ‘DJ Tee’ Odubawo and C. J Obasi.
“We don’t take this for granted. We hope the committee fulfils its original mandate, which is to give a platform to credible Nigerian films to compete at the prestigious Academy Awards annually,” said NOSC Chairman Chineze Anyaene.
“We couldn’t make any submissions in previous years due to unavailability of qualifying films, but things are looking hopeful… and we are actively working towards having an entry this year,” he added.
Nigeria joined 82 other countries in contesting the Foreign Language diadem, now called ‘International Feature Film’ category, after an approval and subsequent inauguration of the NOSC in February 2014.
But Nollywood could not present any film for the Oscars as the few submissions did not meet basic criteria.
The International Feature Film of the Oscars gives opportunity to Nigerian filmmakers living in Nigeria and Diaspora for a shot at the foremost creative industry award scheme globally.
