CEO of Ghana Movie Awards Fred Nuamah has said the Ghana Movie Awards (GMAs) has bright prospects.
The GMAs has over the last six years consistently honoured excellence in Ghana’s move industry.
Speaking in a New Year message over the weekend, he congratulated all stakeholders of the movie industry and sponsors for supporting the awards, assuring, “we are getting there with your support. It won’t be long.”
“2015 came to a close with us celebrating our sisters and brothers in the Film and Television Industry during our 6th Ghana Movie Awards at the Accra International Conference Centre.
“We would like to congratulate all winners and would also like to extend our appreciation to every Actor, Director, Writer, Producer, Costume and Wardrobe Designer, Editor, Makeup Artists and Technicians within the Music, Visual Effects, Sound, Production Design, Cinematography and Animation branches. You are the reason the Ghana Movie Awards was created and continues to exist,” he said.
“We continue to be humbled by the warm reception from the general public, who we owe so much to for their unceasing encouragement and patronage towards the Ghana Movie Awards and for their support of the entire film and television industry which continues to work tirelessly towards excellence. We are getting there with your support. It won’t be long. The Awards Team would like to thank our sponsors Joy Dadi Bitters, Silhouette Advertising, SEA, Peugeot, Eurostar Global Limousine Group, Vita Milk, KIA Motors, and Kempinski Hotel. We couldn’t have done it without you. Let’s do it even bigger in 2016! See you there,” he added.
The 2015 Ghana Movie Awards was boycotted by some of the country’s major actors who were not happy with some movies that made the awards’ nomination list.
They argued that those productions were not Ghanaian enough to compete with Ghanaian local movies. Organisers, they said, could have however created international categories for such movies.
