Omotola ‘not excited’ African movies were excluded from Oscars 2019

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Nollywood actress and voting member of the Oscars, says she’s is not so happy that no African movie made it to the 2019 Oscars nomination list.

The Nollywood star, who was enlisted into the voting membership of the Oscar Awards in 2018, made the disclosure in an Instagram post where she conveyed her thoughts on the nominated movies.

While she expressed her happiness on the fact that a great deal of the movies she voted were picked, the actor was concerned that no African movie made it to the list.

“So glad most of the movies I nominated made it,” she said.

“Wasn’t so excited no African movie made it!”

Omotola was, however, enthusiastic and convinced that the situation would change for the better in the coming years.

“Someday soon we will be doing this for Africans,” she added.

Jalade-Ekeinde isn’t the only Nigerian who was invited to join the Oscar awards voters in 2018. Femi Odugbemi, a filmmaker, was also invited.

‘The Favourite’ and ‘Roma’ were the most nominated movies, receiving 10 each, while ‘Black Panther’ earned seven nominations.
