Naija Stand Up! Chiwetel Ejiofor Gets Golden Globes & SAG Nominations For Best Actor! Are The Oscars Next?! Idris Elba & Lupita Nyong’o Bag Nominations Too
The nominees for the 2014 Screen Actors Guild & Golden Globe Awards were announced yesterday & this morning respectively & I am too happy to see Chiwetel Ejiofor & other Africans get nominated in major categories for both awards.
For the Golden Globes he received nominations for: Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama for his role in “12 Years A Slave” & Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television for his role in “Dancing on the Edge” & for the Screen Actors Guild Award he was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for “12 Years A Slave” & Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture – “12 Years A Slave”!
That’s four possible awards he could win!! Woop Woop! Naija Stand Up! I don’t care what any of you say he is Naija to the bone, granted he wasn’t born & bred here but his parents are Nigerian…Igbo to the core so he is one of us!
