The inaugural Ghana Movie Awards 2010 - winners

The first ever Ghana Movie Awards took place this past weekend at the Accra International Conference Centre. The event was attended by stars of both the Ghanaian and the Nigerian movie industries such as Patience Ozokwor, Desmond Elliot, Mercy Johnson, Jim Ike, and Tonto Dike. 28 categories were awarded, with separate awards for films in English and in local languages.

Shirley Frimpong-Manso's A Sting In A Tale emerged with the most awards (a total of five), taking Best Directing, Best Original Music, Best Screenplay, Best Score, and Best Cinematography. But Best Picture went to Leila Djansi's Sinking Sands, which also won for Best Art Direction, Best Wardrobe, and Best Movie (West African Collaboration).

The Best Actor awards went to Majid Michel (English) and Kofi Adu A.K.A. Agya Koo (Local Language). Jackie Appiah (and 3 co-stars) won Best Actress (English) and Rose Mensah A.K.A. Kyeiwaa won the local language award.

The winners were chosen by the Ghana Movie Awards Jury, Planning/Organizing Committee and Founder. 92 films were submitted, though some expressed concerns that the committees may not have screened all 92 films.
