2013 Golden Icons Academy Movie Awards in Houston, Texas - October 2013 - BellaNaija020 Ghanaian actor Adjetey Anang was adjudged ‘Best Actor’ at the second edition of the Golden Icons Academy Movie Awards (GIAMA) which took place on October 19 at the Stafford Centre performing Art Theater in Houston Texas, and hosted by Nollywood superstar Ramsey Nouah. Adjetey, popularly known as ‘Pusher’, a character he played in a hit television series ‘Things We Do For Love’ which shaped his acting career, picked the nod ahead of his South African and Nigerian counterparts with the movie ‘Hunters’. ‘Hunters’ also picked another award on the night, ‘Producer of the Year’ which went to Abdul Salam Mumini, producer and CEO of Venus Films Production. Prior to the awards, Adjetey said he was proud of himself to be in a category of competent actors on the African continent which included his compatriot Majid Michel (Brother’s Keeper), Kalu Ikeagwu (False), Hlomla Dandala (Contract), O.C Ukeje (Alan Poza) and Yemi Blaq (Bridge of Hope). He said the actors nominated were great and competent, and each had the chance of winning but luck smiled on him. The ‘Best Actor’ category was announced by actress Jackie Appiah. Recollecting the buildup to when he was announced as the winner, Adjetey said when Jackie was called upon as the announcer, he gazed at her carefully as she walked to the stage. He said her mannerism and countenance didn’t make him think that he was going to win the award; instead it showed a serious face. “A look at Jackie (Appiah) just gives me the indication that, it won’t be me because she had this neutral face and she didn’t even smile. So I thought that one of my colleagues had won it, but then she goes up there and mentions my name.” He said when his name was mentioned he “was really surprised and excited at the same time.” Check the list of full winners Best Motion Picture – Ninah’s Dowry Best Drama – Finding Mercy Best Cinematography – Red Hot Best Comedy – Okon goes to School Best Costume – Twin Sword Best New Actress – Mbufung Seikeh – Ninah’s Dowry Best New Actor – Seun Akindele – On Bended Knees Best Actor – Adjetey Anang – The Hunters Best Actress – Ireti Doyle – Torn Best Director – Kunle Afolayan – Phone Swap Producer of the year – Abdul Salam – The Hunters Best Supporting Actor – Alex Ekubo – Weekend Getaway Best Supporting Actress – Kate Henshaw – False Best Original Screenplay – Desperate House girls Best Sound – Last Flight to Abuja Best Original Soundtrack – Mrs. Somebody Best Film Diaspora – Still Standing Best Film Director – Diaspora – Desmond Elliot and Bethels Agomuoh – Unguarded Best Actor (Viewer’s Choice) – Mike Ezuruonye Best Actress (Viewer’s Choice) – Ini Edo Honorary Lifetime Achievement Award – Richard Mofe-Damijo Honorary Directing Achievement Award – Lancelot Imasuen 2013 Golden Icons Academy Movie Awards in Houston, Texas -
