Ghanaian actress and movie producer, Yvonne Nelson, has revealed that the movie, ‘Beast of No Nation‘ does not qualify for a nomination at the Ghana Movie Awards.
The actress told Ghana’s KMJ on Hitz FM that the movie does not qualify for a nomination because it is not a Ghanaian production. ‘It’s not fair to all of us if they submit that movie because it is not a Ghanaian production.
The fact that it was shot in Ghana doesn’t make it a Ghanaian production.
So I won’t agree to that. If we are trying to promote our own, why will we go for a foreign production?’ ‘You cannot compare a Hollywood production to a Ghanaian movie. The budgets are totally different,’ she stated.
The movie, which features Hollywood actor, Idris Elba and Ghana’s Abraham Attah, has already been submitted for the 2015 Ghana Movie Awards which is scheduled to hold on December 30.
