Genevieve Nnaji’s Lionheart becomes Nigeria’s first-ever Oscar entry

The Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee (NOSC) has picked Genevieve Nnaji’s ‘Lionheart’ as the country’s submission to the International Feature Film category of the 2020 Oscars.

The group announced the selection on Wednesday.

The NOSC said they arrived at the decision after a statutory vetting and subsequent voting of entries received from Nigerian filmmakers at home and in the Diaspora.

Among the films received this year, the NOSC said it picked ‘Lionheart’ for its considerable shots at the rules.


The 12-man team boasts of notable Nigeria’s film industry stakeholders of international standing.
