Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Genevieve Nnaji has been selected as member of the 2020 class of Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Other Nigerians to have been nominated for this position includes Omotola also known as Omo Sexy.
As part of her duties, the gorgeous actress will be among other artistes to determine winners of Oscar 2021, an event which is scheduled for April 25, 2021.
The Academy extended their invitation to the actress alongside 819 artistes and executives who have distinguished themselves in the theatrical and motion pictures (movie) industry.
The actress has accepted the invitation, thanking the Academy for adding her to the team. Her acceptance message on social media read, “I’m honored to be a member of the family. Thank you The Academy.”
As a new member, Genevieve now has the right to vote for the Oscar Winners for 10years, news reports have indicated. This news comes after her 2018 movie titled, ‘Lionheart’, was disqualified over alleged English language dialogue, although the movie had secured its biggest deal with Netflix.
Genevieve has been a beauty to behold with her movies always characterized by images of a strong, sassy woman with ambitions to take on the whole world. Now that the Oscars are in order for her, we can’t wait to see her new move. Genevieve has started in over 80 movies throughout her movie career, her latest being the ‘Lionheart’.
