Three Nigerian Women Who Got Invited Into The 2018 Oscars Voting Academy


Three Nigerian women have been invited into the voting membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, also known as the Oscars awards.

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Wunmi Mosaku and Ngozi Onwurah are among the 928 members to be admitted this year.

The academy organizes and decides the nominations for the universally-acclaimed Oscars award for motion pictures.

Following the criticism that the Academy was dominated by white-male, this year, people of color as well as women make up the most in the list.

According to the list, Omotola’s invitation was based on the recognition she got in the movies,  ‘A Private Storm’ and ‘Last Flight to Abuja’.

Wunmi Mosaku is a Nigerian-born British actress who won the 2017 BAFTA TV Award for best supporting actress for her role as Gloria Taylor in the TV film ‘Damilola, Our Loved Boy’.

She was recognised based on her roles in the movies, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”

Ngozi Onwurah is a Nigerian-born British producer, director and lecturer who won the best short film at the Melbourne Film Festival, Australia and best documentary at the Montreal Film Festival, Canada for ‘The Body Beautiful’.

Her short films, “Hang Time” and “The Body Beautiful” got her the invitation.
