 Screen Nation Celebrates A Night Of Winners

Congratulations To All Nominees And Winners!


On February the 23rd the 9th Screen Nation Film & Television Awards celebrated diversity with stars from across the globe. It was an evening of celebration for Black British talent and boy were we in for an exciting ride! The proceedings started off slow, but in hindsight it was a positive as it allowed many to mingle and network amongst celebrities in our community. There were a couple of gaffes and technical glitches, but hey this served to bring more shared humour amongst the audiences.

Films, actors and actresses who received worthy notes and wins were aplenty, but unsurprising 12 Years A Slave led the line, followed by Half A Yellow Sun the later hitting our screens March 21st of this year. More on this and the brilliant and talented novelist, who brought this book to life Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, read and watch trailer here starring Thandie Newton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Genevive Nnaji, Noni Anika Rose, Onyeka Onwuenu http://www.divascribe.com/DivaUrbanWorld/Chimamanda-Ngozi-Adichie-a-316.html

The special event was compèred by the ‘delicious’ Nigerian talents Caroline Chikezie of the hit HBO series and many others and veteran Nigerian comedian and entertainer Ali Baba. Light entertainment was offered by Ayo (talking drum) and a new rising artist called Nike. Celebrated Nollywood film Producer and Director Obi Emelonye did a stellar job as Creative Director for this years event.
