AMVCA 10: Africa Magic Announces Full Nominees List

As anticipation builds for the 10th edition of the AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards, organizers have announced the nominees for this year’s award categories. The nominee announcement aired on Sunday, Mar. 24, 2024, on all AfricaMagic channels, stirring excitement among fans across the continent. The prestigious awards ceremony, celebrating excellence in African film and television, is slated to take place on May 10th and 11th, 2024.

Dr Busola Tejumola, Executive Head of Content and Channels, West Africa, MultiChoice, said, “We are happy to unveil the nominees for the 10th edition of the prestigious AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards. The quality of entries received was simply outstanding and the jury had their work cut out for them in shortlisting the nominees. This year’s lineup is exceptional, reflecting the diversity and creativity prevalent in African cinema and television, and we can’t wait to celebrate them.

The organisers of the awards had earlier called for entries (from Jan. 15 – Feb. 14 2024), inviting filmmakers from across Africa, whose productions had been publicly exhibited or broadcast from Dec. 1, 2022, till Dec. 31, 2023, to put in their work for possible nominations. 

The performance awards have undergone some streamlining this year; they now fall under the categories of Best Actor and Best Actress in a leading or supporting role. There are now 27 categories, 16 non-voting, 9 audience voting categories, and 2 recognition awards – Lifetime Achievement and Trailblazer Awards. The non-voting categories will be decided by the AMVCA panel of judges headed by ace filmmaker, Femi Odugbemi. See the full list of nominees below.
