Ahead of the 2015 Oscars, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), has approved a twelve-man committee of Nollywood stakeholders, the Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee (NOSC), paving the way for Nigerian entries to be considered for the world’s most prestigious prizes for films.

The twelve-man committee who will select one Nollywood movie each year to be submitted for the Oscars, include Chineze Anyaene, Ngozi Okafor, Olumide Amure, Ramsey Nouah, Kene Mkparu, Emeka Mba, Chioma Ude, Akin Salami, Mildred Okwo, Biola Alabi, Charles Novia and Shaibu Husseini.

  8. So as usual we must get approval from Yankees before we consider what we are doing to be ok. Mark my words we will never achieve much if we see ourselves as great only through the eyes of others (especially americans). Black man black sense!!!
