FLOPPED! Ghana Movie Awards 2015 In Trouble Again + Full List Of Winners

The 6th edition of the Ghana Movie Awards  received lots of controversies after the nominations came out and most stakeholders in the movie industry doubted the credibility of the awards scheme.

Some took to their social media pages to administer their displeasure and vent their anger on the organizers of the Ghana Movie Awards.

The Bad

The event which took place at the Accra International Conference Center on Wednesday December 30 2015, had an awful start as it was scheduled to commence at 7pmb but instead, began at 11pm.A similar thing happened at the announcement of  the nominees at the Accra Mall. It was supposed to start at 3pm but started at 6:25pm

The organization and presentation was also not on point as the event could’t pull enough movie makers.The MCs also did their best to keep the audience active. It even got to a point where no one laughed at any joke cracked by the comedians present.

Some of the nominees boycotted the event as they saw it not necessary to atttend since they didn’t value its credibility.

Beasts Of No Nation swept 10 awards out of  15 nominations.That alone was another big shocker as Ghanaian movie producers didn’t expect the movie to be nominated.They cried that a 6million dollar movie couldn’t be compared to movies worth less than Ghc100,000.

The Good

It was a night of bliss as young actor Abraham Attah had to beat some big names in the movie industry to win Best Actor In A Leading Role and Discovery Of The Year with his first ever movie.

Adjetey Annan made it fun when he sang John Legend’s “All Of Me”.Funny Face,Lil Win,Salinko and the ‘2 Idiots’ were among the few who tried their best to keep the event lively.
