Still on an Oscar-related story, some months ago Legit.ng reported that Nigeria’s first film to ever be sent for consideration at the Academy Awards was kicked out of the race.

On Monday, November 4, 2019, Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji’s directorial debut movie, Lionheart, was disqualified from the Oscars race for being in English. Lionheart had been sent for Oscars consideration under the International Feature Film category.

Speaking on the development, Nigeria Oscar Selection Committee (NOSC) chairperson, Chineze Anyaene, said Nigeria is faced with making movies for a wide reach of people which is why the movies are predominantly made in English.

Anyaene also added that the committee will now submit movies which are predominantly done in a foreign language and also urged filmmakers to take note.

To make the step easier, Anyaene explained that workshops and seminars will be organised to create awareness on the Academy Awards requirements regarding the International Feature Film category.
