    Is this joke or something? Seriously BANANA ISLAND GHOST?

    PERFECT PICTURE was not nominated but banana island ghost WAS? Excess Luggage? This is why I’ve said I don’t respect ANY AFRICAN MOVIE AWARD SHOW. None.

    This whole nominee list is a joke. Time wasters

    Absolutely Ridiculous and a Joke.

    More than 20″yrs since inception of Nollywood, and still this nonsense, Continue to to praise MEDIOCRITY, we’ll continue to tell it like it is. (Mstilii)

      Some producers did not submit their films… for reasons best known to them. That could be a reason for the lack of…

    The AMVCA is still on? Thought it was cancelled? Nollywood plus the country it is in are just not to be taken seriously. Well congrats to Rita Dominic, the woman has been nominated almost back to back each year and winning too. Great actress! Congrats to all the nominees

    I don’t understand. Where is battleground and aunty shaffy and gbenga titiloye? What is this? And the alter ego movie was very horrible. When will this mago mago stop?

    Dakore, Adesua and Rita were not funny. I’m still gon throw in little votes for Rita & Adesua cuz they my favs lmao.. Queen Nwokoye was the only one that gave a funny performance in that category. Same for the male category, most of them weren’t funny. Also how is Dorcas nominated for best actress she barely had any lines in Banana Island Ghost, how is Chigurl not nominated. Also why is Alter Ego getting this many nominations smh. How was The Wedding Party not nominated?! Sola Sobowale?! I’m guessing mo didn’t submit it.

      Please where did you watch The big fat lie that Rita is nominated for? Are you sure it’s out???‍♀️

    July 1, 2018 at 3:15 am

    Na wa oo.pls how do they come up with these nominations? So Biodun Stephen’s movies were not nominated, picture perfect, Ovy’s voice?? Ninalowo and Bisola both deserve to be nominated for their roles in those movies..but what do I know..?RME

  8. Awesome

    July 1, 2018 at 6:26 am

    Likely seriously… ALTER EGO, having all these nomination… (No be the same movie wey we watch at the Cinema and at AFRIFF abi na another version wey them submit?) How did it find itself in overall Africa movie in the first place … AMVCA has finally become a JOKE !! This whole list is so tacky!

    These days I put on a Nigerian movie to serve as background noise when I don’t wanna fall asleep, their unnecessary shouts jerks me out of of any sleepy situation.. All our movies are the same just different actors/actresses in a boy meets girl world. I think the whole point of civilization only made our movies look better but content 0. I miss the days of Igodo, Ijele, Isakaba,violated(this is a typical naija movie nowadays but the acting was way better then),end times,elastic limit, the movie with Liz benson and Ernest Obi being maltreated Where his head was forced into mopping water. So many movies with great story lines that reflected what we go through in naija. Now, the really good movies are only a handful the rest are just some Americana wanna be doing the same typical thing we will see in a Hollywood only very poorly done with loads of exposed chest for no reason. But then again coming from a country where our industry is called Nollywood I expect nothing less. What does Nollywood mean though? Nigeria what??? Just imagine America calling themselves Allywood??‍♀️

      @Mamamia, while your overall point is well noted why on earth are Nigerians like you surprised by Nigerian actors supposedly “overacting” in movies when ordinary Nigerians routinely “overact” everyday in real life? Stroll out of your front door or go almost anywhere in Nigeria and you will regularly hear the same “unnecessary shouts” that you bemoan.

    I don’t understand these nominations o. Biko, where are the names of the actors? How do I know if Rita is among the nominees especially as I’ve not watched most of the movies nominated?

    Oburo ka Oscars si eme nke ha?

    Guys calm down! This list isnt any different from past AMVCAs nominees list please.. and Alter Ego is no “horrible” movie.. Not a great movie in my opinion but is definitely not a bad one..besides, it had an underlying theme to it so i think it deserves all the nominations especially in a year where there dearth of good movies. 2017 wasnt all great for Nollywood tbh and 2018 is even going to be worse.

    I feel the nominees list is reflective of a mediocre 2017 movie year….

  12. Awesome

    @Oma,the fault is from BellaNaija. Don’t know wetin do the person that published this post.
    I viewed the complete list on Pulse.ng

    The rule of the Amvca is that you submit it for screening/nomination….Maybe the movie you wanted to see on the list wasn’t nominated. Also IROKO TV and Africa magic are competitors, therefore no Iroko tv production can make the list and picture perfect falls in that category.
    Probably, it is time for an Iroko TV viewers choice award.

    July 1, 2018 at 11:11 am

    No Picture Perfect?????
    For series, what happened to “About tomorrow” and “Husbands of Lagos”??
    Comedy nomination without Emem Ufot on the list. Big joke.

    I don’t think BN does any editing. That is why the comments have dwindled and the few IJGBs, Islanders and Rich Kids who used to swarm the blog as close as three years ago have all gone.

    This list just shows you that there’s a clique in Nollywood! I’m not sure why trash movies like Banana Island nonsense & New Money are on the list – this is clearly a case of the producers of those movies are “friends of the family”. It’s so sad that we politicise everything in this country – even simple award. Africa Magic has become mediocre over the past few years!

    • Temi

      July 3, 2018 at 8:48 am

      If they had not put New Money on it, the director would have cried. She is addicted to attention. So please, amvca was doing us a favour. ? jokes aside, of course it is a clique. Where isn’t? This is a marketing event for Africa magic. They want celebs on the red carpet, viewers and hits on social media. So coincidentally nominees are from less than ten african countries.

      July 6, 2018 at 8:48 pm

      Say what you want but Banana Island ghost was a fantastic movie. I can’t speak for other movies on the list though.

    • ME

      August 25, 2018 at 1:53 am

      I totally agree. I loved it!

  20. Just saying

    July 5, 2018 at 10:36 am

    OK so I did some digging and asked questions. Amvca has lost all credibility and that’s why the PARTICULAR MOVIE MAKERS did not submit their hard work to it for nomination. I don’t blame them. If I were the. I will never submit either with their bias Corrupt votings and nomination. Some people are paid to vote. Shame on amvca.

    You are CANCELLED

    Continue with praising mediocrity with your less than average movie nominations

    Rename it MEDIOCRE AWARDS
