The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has reportedly weighed in on the ongoing NOSC crisis with the offer to reconvene for a revote.

A committee member Shaibu Husseini said the Academy had granted NOSC an extension for a final determination by the members following the internal crisis rocking the Nigerian Oscar Selection Committee over its September announcement that no film qualified for the 2023 Oscars International Feature Film category submission.

Following the announcement, committee members Mildred Okwo and Husseini confirmed their resignation amid reports of alleged misconduct by Chairperson Chineze Anyaene.

It would be recalled that the committee voted for three films including Ebonylife studios’ Elesin Oba, Kunle Afolayan’s Anikulapo and top-grossing Femi Adebayo produced King of Thieves.

While eight members voted for ‘nil submission’, five reportedly voted for Elesin Oba with the remaining films splitting the votes 1-1.
