So, it’s clear the demographic of those voting for the MTV Movie Awards are young and love a good teen romance, perhaps more than we would like them to, what with Justin Bieber and anything Twilight-related scooping the awards. But we have even more of an interest in the awards since they slipped in the Best African category at the last minute.
Our choices then:
- Life, Above All – South Africa
- Viva Riva – Democratic Republic of the Congo
- A Screaming Man – Chad
- Restless City – Nigeria
Although it wasn’t part of the ceremony broadcast on MTV, Viva Riva was announced as the winner afterwards. What a pity – as I think it would have driven people who heard the announcement to go check it out. Nonetheless, it’s a start, I suppose. The film releases in New York on the 10th of June, before heading off to the UK and then South Africa in September.
As for the other winners – they all were from Twilight. Okay, just kidding, they were almost all from there…
