Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, a voting member of the Oscars, has expressed her displeasure towards the 2019 edition of the awards.
The Veteran actress said she is not happy that no African movie made it to the 2019 Oscars nomination list.
Omotola, who was enlisted into the voting membership of the Oscar Awards in 2018, made the disclosure in an Instagram post where she conveyed her thoughts on the nominated movies.
Although she expressed her happiness on the fact that the movies she voted were picked, the actress was more concerned that no African movie made it to the list.
