    I like the influx of new talent in the African film industry but slightly shocked that the nollywood greats are not featured at all, not in acting nor producing. Are thy still relevant in this industry or more preoccupied with red carpet appearances and lack lustre interviews?

    Best AMVCAs! Was really happy. 90% of the people I voted for won, that’s a first! Lol. Was very excited, great night. It was also nice to see Pete Edochie get the Merit Award, important to celebrate them while they’re still here.
    I think Living Funeral is the only movie nominated for more than 4 categories and still went home with nothing; upon all the noise. Good job Shirley! I’m so proud. God bless! 🙂

    March 9, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    this award was very well organized and i was happy with 90% of the winners, it was well deserved. Biggest shock of the night was Tope Tedela winning, i was rooting for him but i thought Hlomla or Majid would beat him. Congratulations to the winners and the organizers! Waje and Flavour killed it, in fact all the performers were amazing. The opening act was the best!!!

    • Shandi

    Wow, it must hurt to be nominated in 8 categories and go with nothing; Living Funeral.
    Good job, Shirley! You really showed it was International Women’s Day; I love you!
    Obi Emolonye, it was great you let your wife stay by your side, as opposed to last year when your guys put her at the back.
    I’m happy! Well deserved winners.

    • Mayowa

      March 9, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      I remember last year when BN put the list of the people nominated and 90% of the comments were going on about how they weren’t qualified to be on the list, and someone said they were “hating”, and they will surely win. I guess whoever that person was now knows the true and actual definition of hate.
      Well done Shirley, I was rooting for you last year and I was disappointed, this year, wow I’m beyond happy. The awards Ghana had were all from you, you really should be proud of yourself.
      Tope, I couldn’t be more proud. Amarachukwu, I’m more than happy for you. Nse, I voted tirelessly, well done girl. Bikiya, I’m happy you won ’cause I also voted and you deserve it.
      To the rest of the winners, congratulations. Well deserved!
      Well done, AMVCA.

    • Exquisite

      March 9, 2014 at 4:07 pm

      I know right!
      People use the “hate” word anyhow. Last year, I didn’t bother commenting, I’m like wait for March and we’d know who’s really good (awards) and who’s really hating. Any little thing “they’re hating”. That word is used carelessly today.
      Shirley! Shirley!!!!!!!!! You see, many ladies and women and proud. A job well done! You truly inspire me.
      Michelle Bello, Congratulations. Beautiful lady! Great job.
      Pete Edochie!!!!! What more can I say? Well deserved awards. I’m more content about these awards unlike last year. Great job guys.
      And thanks BN, couldn’t watch the show so thanks for the information. Please, pictures too.

      March 10, 2014 at 11:11 am

      Lol …. I remember too, I also thought some of you guys were “hating” ‘cos U hadn’t seen the film, so its weird to understand how U can say its not good enough … it didn’t win, but it was def good enough to get so many nominations … Nigerians sha

    • Mayowa

      March 10, 2014 at 1:34 pm

      @Filmaker
      You shouldn’t have thought they were hating. You not liking something doesn’t meant you’re hating. And they weren’t even saying they hated it or not, I just checked again. They just said it shouldn’t be nominated because it wasn’t qualified and it truly wasn’t. Anyway, the day is over.

    • NGOZI

      March 10, 2014 at 1:43 pm

      Filmmaker, it was good enough to get so many nominations but wasn’t good enough to take anything? You just said Nigerians sha, and I’m a not saying the Nigerians sha to you. Some of you say a lot of things you’re uncertain about. I remember that day very well now. Not a single person said the movie wasn’t good. They all said it wasn’t prohibited before the dates AM requested so they thought it shouldn’t be nominated. This is how you guys twist stories, and you accuse bloggers. You’re not any different.

    • Seyi

      March 10, 2014 at 1:43 pm

      Actually it shouldn’t hurt, for a movie that isn’t yet out and a 20minutes film to be put on the same category as the rest of your top shots thats DAMN GOOD… Living Funeral did awesome…

    • NGOZI

      March 10, 2014 at 2:22 pm

      If it isn’t yet out, why was it nominated?
      Also, if it’s truly not yet out, how will people vote for a movie that isn’t yet out. You know what’s funny? Your comment that didn’t make sense made sense.
      I think everyone who won deserved it! Great show

    • Chinedu

      March 10, 2014 at 2:29 pm

      Gosh, you ladies never seize to amaze me. Enough already! Do you think a movie that’s not out will be nominated? If it’s truly not yet out maybe everyone who said the movie wasn’t qualified were tight after all. At the end of the day they really won nothing and the show it’s over so congratulate the winners.
      Good job to the organisers. There were errors here and then but you guys pulled it off.
      Congratulations to the well-deserved winners, especially the old Doctor. Nse, I knew you were going to win, phenomenal actress. Amarachukwu and Tobi, I’m really happy for you guys and that’s an understatement. Shirley, what can I say? Proud of you girl. Bug shout out to Nairobi Half Life. By the way, Bimbo Akintola and Ramsey Noah looked impeccable.
      Pete Edochie, the main man of the night.
      BN, we’re waiting on you for the pictures.

    Pete Edochie!!!! So happy he won. Next year should be Alex Usifo. It’s good they’re being honored while they’re still around.
    BN, I see you’re playing politics with the comments, as usual.
    Congratulations to the winners! And a job WELL DONE to the organisers. God bless you all, Amen!

      In all honesty, i think next year should go to Kenneth Okonkwo. He was in the first nollywood blockbuster and he is still waxing strong, and still one of the best and most visible actors from the 90s who’s still going strong.

    I don’t know what Desmond acted in Finding Mercy o! It was a good movie but i can’t say one person’s acting stood out and even if sef it definitely wasn’t Desmonds’….but in Lies Men Tell?! Desmond was hilarious….he went out of his comfort zone, and best still, he stayed in character all through! That in my opinion is grounds for an award….

    I loved the ceremony. Since am a fashiondesigner i will talk fashion. Most of the ladies looked fab fab fab. I see the men followed the oscar themed and rocked the white jacket trend. Alot of the men put in alot of effort this yr. but my best dress man was chidi mokeme. He proved size does matter, i mean height does matter. That outfit was so bondlike
    I love that the ladies of ebony TV screen divers rita, kate,uche all decieded on a theme of red. So did a host if other ladies.osas looked sooo fab in her 2nd form fiting vilisco number the colour sceme against the light looked great. I love genevive but her dress was a step dowm from last yr. i mean last yr she brot her A game. This yr that mesh over that red bra & lining was taky. This yr the men wear daring with their choice of colours . That africa we love colour.mike ezo wore red jacket, chinedu rocked narobi blue & tope tedele matched his red bow tie with his socks. I just love award show fashion. Congrates to all the winners.keep on rocking it for africa

    In my honest opinion,i dont agree with komfo as the best indigenous yoruba film. Akinnakore and Aiye koto are two good yoruba movies with meaningful storyline,cool picture quality,cast etc.

    March 10, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    Like I usually do, I read all the comments before commenting. I don’t understand, if the movie wasn’t yet out as mentioned by one of you, that means it didn’t meet the qualification, hence the people who said the movie didn’t meet the prerequisite indeed. I’d use this as a medium to advise people to take constructive criticisms and know that not every advise or opinion is “hate”. The word is used anyhow today and rather than people taking advice that will help them, they call it wait. Perhaps if they had waited a year before submitting their movie, they might have won an award; just maybe. No one will vote for a movie they haven’t seen online or on TV.
    Congratulations to all the winners, organisers and partners.

    It’s fantastic to see an award of this calibre… Our very own Oscars!
    I saw The Contract and I wasn’t so impressed. It was really good but not great. I’m surprised it won so many awards. It seemed like the movies considered to be nominated for an award were very limited as there were so many repetitions.. (Weren’t there many nice movies released last year? lol)
    Congratulations to all the winners.

    Nigerians are fond of dissing celebrities from other countries.If its nyc jus say it, dnt say otherwise b’cos the person is from another country……..Joysln is beautiful n most gals wish they had her body.If a nigerian is in an ugly dress they say “nice”…………………guys be fair,it doesn’t cost a thing.

I didn’t read any of you saying it shouldn’t have been nominated, Western media didn’t say American Hustle wasn’t good enough to be nominated , ‘cos being nominated once is a big deal but U can Trust my Nigerians to do what they do best …. I call it “beef'” or “hating” .

      Hi Orode, welcome on board.
      You cannot compare the American Hustle situation with the Living Funeral situation.
      No one is using the 8 nominations without a single win as a proof that the movie is good or not. No one talked about the movie being good, amateur or bad. From the time the movie was nominated up until now, I can only recall people saying it wasn’t qualified, and it really wasn’t as it isn’t yet out. Although, I feel it shouldn’t have been blown out the way it is. Perhaps that’s why a lot of people didn’t vote, you don’t expect people to vote for a movie that they haven’t seen on TV, or at least online. The only thing I can see from this thread here is “upon all the noise, they won nothing”, no one said the movie was good or not. Not everything is “hate”, in fact, there’s nothing to hate. Better luck next year.

      Lol @hiOrode
      Orode doesn’t read blogs so that can’t be her. In other news. Yes please people move on the person involved is just happy that they got nominated at all for something that was made from nothing serious. In due time the movie will be out to the public and then you can begin to argue whether it’s good or not.

      LOL. Micheal and AY do you guys live with her? You made it more obvious you’re related to her/ her; should’ve just ignored the comment the person made. She doesn’t read blogs indeed.

      For all it’s worth, the Ceremony is long over, forget it. It’s only sore losers that drag issues; it’s getting annoying. Interesting comments though, can’t stop laughing.

      But really, why are you still on about this? The awards show is over and done with. What’s with the hate issue? Was that the only movie nominated? Why didn’t Nigerians “hate” on the other movies nominated? I find it absurd when people try to make points out of nothing. Needless to say, Saturday is gone and gone forever. Please talk about something else and don’t make an issue over nothing.
      Take care, yeah.

    That lady in Clinic Matters should have won the best actress in a comedy film award, she is the best female comedian around, I watch clinic matters because of her. Her name is Mary Ogbonna and her name is Biliki (I think) in Clinic Matters. Funke is good but Biliki is funnier.
