  • Ty September 14, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    Wat happened to linda ikeji’s blog for online nomination. Its unfair u all neglect her cos she brings d tru fact. Bon sef and their stupid bias award. Genny had d heights nominatn last year and dey gave it 2 omon oboli. I knw ds one wud b rigged as well. Bad belle. Genny is d best weda u gv it 2 her or nt. She as international awards 2 worry abt dan some local scrap

    • Titi September 14, 2011 at 6:07 pm

      So why are you so vexed?!!!!!!!

    • nina September 30, 2011 at 9:30 pm

      she HAS not AS. Other actresses have really worked hard also to be nominated and they deserve this chance at recognition. Genevieve is good, nobody is disputing that but don’t let your worship of her blind your sense of objectivity.

  • ndidiamaka September 14, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    every tom bitch and harry goes to china gets a cheap plaque and saids they r doing an awards show. Awards show my ass. I don’t respect any of these useless award shows. Its just. 419 way of getting ppl to buy ticket to come to the show and then the present the recipients with some useless plaque. Useless illiterates putting together award shows

    • Adame September 15, 2011 at 3:48 am

      please please. which award plaque did you buy for them?

  • Obi September 14, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    Genevieve is a wonderful actress and I am a fan, but if they gave it to Omoni last year, Dear Ty please let it go. There are other up and coming hard workers out there who give superb performances but due to accent or imperfect diction, we relegate them to the back burner. Genevieve has made her mark and by God’s grace will continue to do so. However, awards are to recognize talent and effort, and not to crown Miss or Mr movie world.

  • partyrider September 14, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    where is Nse in this list esp under supporting role? ok oh..
    and “best kiss”?? alright then..

  • September 14, 2011 at 7:00 pm

  • winch September 14, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Ini edo needs a stylist very badly… i am tired of her assaulting my eyes.

  • djokovic September 14, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    @Bella naija : the movie is called bursting out, not Bursting loose really???
    ”why will tonto and muna’s kiss in dirty secrets be nominated for best kiss… i do not understand, it looked as if A monkey and a whale where trying to kiss each other.
    *** My best kiss norminations are:
    Ramsey Noah & Nse Npe Etim: Memories of my heart
    Genevieve & majid michael: silent scandal
    Genevieve & majid michael: Bursting out

  • ndidiamaka September 16, 2011 at 4:22 am

    useless foolish awards. They can’t even spell and how do mix movies that r not even yet released wih movies that r 2 to 3 yrs old. This is the dumbest award and a 419 scheme to get money out of attendees. I bet u the organizers of these awards haven’t even watch half of these movies themselves. Nonsense awards

  • omeiza September 16, 2011 at 12:14 pm
