    Really? “Best use of Nigerian Food in A Movie?” and how do u announce just a nominee in a category? Ain’t that the winner already? Other movies made several non-acting nominations and yet October 1 is the only contender (sorry, winner) of Movie of the year? This is truly an “award” lols. So many questions!
