Omotola Jalade Expresses Disappointment Over Oscars 2019 Nominations

New oscar voting member, Omotola Jalade has expressed her displeasure towards the 2019 Oscars award.

The actress is unhappy that no African movie made it to the 2019 Oscars final nomination list.

She made the disclosure in an Instagram post where she conveyed her thoughts on the nominated movies.

Her words:

“The Nominations are Out! So glad Most of the Movies I nominated made it. Next , Voting to determine the Winners!… Wasn’t So Exited No African Movie made it ! Someday soon we will Be doing this for Africans!…”

Hollywood movies like ‘Black Panther’ earned seven nominations. while Roma and The Favourite earned 10 nominations each.

    No need to be upset, Africa has a long way to go. Oscars is meant for Hollywood and nothing else.

    Sadly, African movies have not evolved to the level of the possibility of Oscar nominations. When they stop recycling the same lame storylines and start being truly creative, others will acknowledge. I have never watched a Nigerian movie that made me say “wow”. They are predictable and embarrassing to watch most of the time. Even LionHeart was a disappointment. Get it together and then you might get the awards. Until then, be glad they are even allowing you to vote.
