Lion Heart: Film on Nigerian sex workers disqualified from Oscars

Lion Heart: Film on Nigerian sex workers disqualified from Oscars

The Academy of Motion Pictures has rejected a second entry for next year’s Oscar award for Best International Film.

The Austrian movie, Joy, is about Nigerian sex-workers in Vienna, but the Academy says it has too much dialogue in English.

Last week it turned down Nigeria’s own submission, Lionheart, for the same reason.

The rejections come in the year when the Academy re-named the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar award to Best International Film for “films that are not in the English language”.

News about the film’s disqualification was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter website, which said the Academy found that two-thirds of the dialogue in Joy was in English.

“As we do every year, the Academy is in the process of reviewing the films submitted for the International Feature Film category to determine whether they meet our eligibility rules. The film Joy, submitted by Austria, was just reviewed and is ineligible because only 33% of the dialogue is non-English,” a statement from the Academy says.

The movie was written and directed by Austrian filmmaker Sudabeh Mortezai.

Renowned film director Ava DuVernay has faulted the Academy’s decision

Return all the plaques you’ve won – Ghana DJ Awards organiser to DJ Black

Return all the plaques you’ve won – Ghana DJ Awards organiser to DJ Black

Merqury Quaye, the Chief Executive Officer of Merqury Republic, the organisers of the 2019 Ghana DJ Awards, has questioned why DJ Black should be asking him whether he was winning the 2019 Ghana DJ Awards if indeed he ever told organisers that he was not interested.

According to Quaye, DJ Black asked him on WhatsApp whether he is winning the awards this year because he did not want to attend an event that he knew he was not winning.

“I want to ask DJ Black that if he has told us not to nominate him, how does he slide in my DM (WhatsApp Direct Message) to ask me if he is winning this year, how does that conversation come up?” he quizzed.

Merqury Quaye who spoke on Joy FM’s ‘Showbiz A to Z’ on Saturday with host Naa Ashorkor indicated that the celebrated DJ has been telling him privately that he does not want to be nominated again by the Ghana DJ Awards committee but he (Merqury Quaye) advised him to issue a statement to that effect.

He then instructed DJ Black to return all the plaques he had received from his organisation if he insists he is not interested in the awards.

“If you have ever told me not to nominate you for the Ghana DJ Awards, then today I am telling you that all the plaques that have been presented to you by the Ghana DJ Awards, all the prizes that you have received from the Ghana DJ Awards return them, return all the sound systems,” Merqury Quaye said with anger.

DJ Black had said earlier on the same show that he had not been involved in the DJ awards this year, especially because he did not put up his name for nominations yet he found out he had been nominated.

“In the first place I wonder how my name got the nomination anyway because I know I’ve had a private discussion with Merqury Quaye, about not [wanting to be] nominated for a while so when my name got nominated, I was a bit surprised,” Black told Naa Ashorkor.

He added that even though this was not the first time he had asked the organisers not to nominate him, he always found his name on the list.

Recently, celebrity awards programmes in Ghana have often ended with some controversy surrounding them.

Mostly the narrative is that the organisers cheat in awarding the ultimate or that the ultimate winner does not deserve it.

This controversy is not different from the recently held Ghana DJ Awards where 12-year-old DJ Switch was adjudged the ‘Best DJ of the Year’.

Entertainment pundits have argued that the young DJ should have been given an honourary award as the most promising DJ because winning the ultimate will rather put a lot of pressure on the young girl.
