It was a battle of the ‘iron-ladies’ of the Ghanaian movie industry as film makers Leila Djansi and Shirley Frimpong-Manso battled it out to see who wins the most awards at the maiden edition of the Ghana Movie Awards. Both had multiple nominations for their works ‘Sinking Sands’ & ‘I Sing of a Well’, and ‘Checkmate’ & ‘A Sting in A Tale’ respectively.

Shirley’s ‘Sting in A Tale’ stung the competition by winning a total of 5 nods including Best Directing, Best Original Music, Best Screenplay, Best Score, and Best Cinematography. Leila’s ‘Sinking Sands’ grabbed four statuettes including Best Picture, Best Art Direction, Best Wardrobe, Best Movie (West African Collaboration).

Majid Michel won Best Actor (English) with Kofi Adu alias Agya Koo winning Best Actor (Local Language), while Jackie Appiah (and her 3 co-stars) took the nod for Best Actress (English) with Rose Mensah Alias Kyeiwaa winning in the local language division. The over-all best actor and actress will be announced at a separate ceremony later Sunday evening, December 26 at the Golden Tulip hotel. The winner would take home a brand new Zoyte SUV.
