The sixth edition of the annual Ghana Movie Awards came off on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at the Accra International Conference Center. The event was attended by some stakeholders in the industry which also saw Cary Joji Fuknaga an American film writer, cinematographer and director of popular movie, ‘Beasts of No Nation’ sweeping the highest number of awards that night.
Information reaching Showcase Ghana has it that, young actor Abraham Attah, Idris Elba, Cary Fukunaga and host of people who worked together on ‘Beasts of No Nation’ and were announced winners of various categories has not yet received their various awards.
In a Facebook post made by Mawuko Kuadzi a casting director in Ghana, CEO of MK CASTING the company who helped cast award winning movie ‘Beasts of No Nation’ said non of those who were honored for their various categories were given their awards after the show and for 2 years now organizers of Ghana Movie Awards has been giving excuses that aren’t relevant.
“Last year I am glad Ghana Movie Awards didn’t happen because awards would be given and taken back stage and you will never get it.
In 2015 Abraham Attah, Idris Elba, Cary Fukunaga and host of people who worked so hard on Beasts of No Nation were named winners of various categories but till today 2018, they have still not received their awards. Countless times we have followed up but all we get is “They are on their way,you will get them soon”.
Countless times people have spoken about it,but it falls on deaf ears.
Zylophone Media I pray you address this issues or do well not to repeat the same mistake as we have great respect for your outfit. Ghana Movie Awards lost it and it gives you a lot of work to do. But we believe what you are capable of doing.#GhanaFilm
Mawuko Kuadzi also in the post informed Zylofon Media, the company that currently has franchise to Ghana Movie Awards not to repeat that act in the coming events.
Showcase Ghana would keep you posted as in new developments coming in.
