Which Of The Nigerian Actors Or Actresses Do You Think Deserves An Oscar? by spade: 10:17am On Sep 21, 2006
Hi, I'm Spade

We've seen many performances from various nollywood actors and actresses so I just want to ask, If given the chance to present an oscar to any of them, who would you give it to?

Please state the name of the actor and the particular movie
Or just the name of the actor,

Come on guys, Be serious. I really need to know this. At least ther should be a good nollywood actor or actress good enough to level up to the hollywood standards,

Well, In my own opinion, I think RMD deserves an oscar for his performance in the movie 'SHAME'. Though its an old movie, I have had time to watch that movie again and I think he really acted well. even better than most of his recent movies.

For the best actress position, I think Liz Benson deserves one for her performance in 'SCORES TO SETTLE'. I think her performance was groundbreaking in that movie.

The above mentioned are old movies quite alright, but I think they are good. I was given the chance to see these movies again and I discovered Nigerian actors and actresses were betterduring the 1997-1998-1999 period before these useles new people came in to abuse the pleasure of filmmaking. The practically ruined it for evverybody with their continious playing of thier former roles and always making love movies which they definitely aren't good at.

My worst actor is Pat Attah. Sentiments apart, HE CAN'T ACT!! He is cute, but just is stiff!!

My Worst Actress? Shan George. Is playing the role of a LovePeddler the only thing she perfects at for peace sakes!!


This definitely is what I think!! angry angry angry angry

There is a difference between hollywood standard and oscar standard. Not many hollywood people are worthy of an oscar. Wonder why some actors/actresses get nominated many times? I dont know about the others but i wasnt joking sha. grin

Quite honestly,I think Oscars r way out of the league of nigerian actors, the problem with nolly wood is a complex one ranging from inexperience,lack of professionalism to downright mediocrity.The whole industry suxx and needs a total overhauling.

The question posed on this thread is an insult to serious actors in Hollywood who toil very hard when making a movie [and don't churn out crap in a few weeks only to call such crap a movie]. Nobody in Nollywood deserves an Oscar. . . Period. Not even Olu Jacob and Joke Silva who trained and acted abroad and who are regarded among the cream of the Nigerian actors.

The standard of acting in Nollywood falls way short of Hollywood 'B' movies and even those sort of movies do not aspire to an Oscar nomination talk much less of actually winning an Oscar.

SMC!
No offence here sis but honestly people like you make me wonder when we are going to stop woshirping the "developed world" IDOL!

If Nigerian Ghanian or any other African actors can put together amovie in less than amonth and its as beautiful "Keeping Faith" by RMD Genevieve Naji, Bimbo Akintola and the rest, yet HollyWood can take almost two years making acrapy movie like The Cabble Guy by Jimmy Carrey! Why shouldn't Nollywood actors have Oscars?

  I am sorry if am hurting you hollywood worshiping ego but I believe big things come from small things and thats why today we have movies like 30Days coming our way!

Now tell me if you can not award actors like Olu Jacobs, Liz Benson,Bukky Ajayi,Joke Sliva, Genevieve Naji,RMD,SDA,Rita Dominic,Ramsey Noah, the list is endles! Who can you award?

Please tell me what Jemy Fox did in Ray that RMD could not have done in Critical Asignment! What did Angelina Jolie did in Mr and Mrs Smith that Genievie could not do in 30Days? I believe they are different roles and settings but same great acting so do not give us that hoodwinked HollyWood fantasy jsut because they (HollyWood) has resources and Nigeria does not.
