The Nigeria Official Selection Committee for the Oscars’ Academy Awards Chairperson, Chineze Anyaene-Abonyi
has confirmed that the Academy will now consider movies with dialogue in pidgin english.
The latest feat was achieved after several months of being in communication with the Academy as well as visits to Los Angeles.
She added that the committee is solely responsible for achieving this new feat for Nollywood contrary to reports circulating the media.
Recall ‘Oloture’ Director, Kenneth Gyang on his social media platform said he achieved the applaudable feat after several weeks of communicating with members of the Academy.
In the light of the development, NOSC will now consider extending the submission deadline which ended on October 2, 2020.
This, according to NOSC will allow over five filmmakers with Pidgin English films to submit their works.
