Genevieve Nnaji’s Movie ‘Lion Heart‘ which is the first film ever submitted to the Oscars by Nigeria, has been disqualified from Oscar entry in the Best International Feature Film category, by the Academy.

Genevieve Nnaji, Africa’s celebrated actress, known for her wicked acts in movies such as ‘The blood sister’ directed the film.

Although the movie contained a little of Igbo Language, it is mostly in English, which violates an Academy rule that entries in the category must have “a predominantly non-English dialogue track.”


Taking to her Twitter account Genevieve has given the ‘Academy’ some reasons why ‘Lion Heart’ remains unique, so that they can reconsider their decision about disqualifying the film from the entries for Oscars Award.

“I am the director of Lionheart. This movie represents the way we speak as Nigerians. This includes English which acts as a bridge between the 500+ languages spoken in our country; thereby making us,” she tweeted.

She made the tweet while replying American filmmaker, Ava DuVernay who earlier showed her concern by calling out the Academy and questioning the authenticity of their judgement wit regards to the disqualification of ‘Lion Heart’..

Lionheart,” in which Nnaji plays a woman who tries to keep her father’s struggling company afloat in a male-dominated environment, is currently available on Netflix.
