AMVCA 2017 Predictions: Who Should Win, Who Shouldn't

This year's Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards is less exciting than it has been in past years.

There has not been much publicity on the side of the organisers, most of the nominees haven't been all over social media unflaggingly canvassing for votes.
It's almost like they don't trust their nominations. But, it's fine, we don't trust the nominations too.


"A Trip to Jamaica" was nominated in more than five categories (including best ....
writer), "The Arbitration" and Akin Omotoso's "Vaya" missed out in the Best Movie West Africa and Overall Movie category - these are enough reasons to be indifferent about the event which unexpectedly comes up on March 4, 2017.
Nevertheless, there are reasons to be excited - Somkele Idhalama, Ivie Okujaye, "76," "93 Days," "Vaya" and Gregory Ojefua got well deserved nominations.
It's no news that the films and actors that walk away from award ceremonies with a statuette aren’t always the ones that should have won.
For an award ceremony mostly dependent on viewers to choose a winner; every nominee is a winner.
Let's look at who we think would win in major categories (based on their social media campaign which has been apathetic), and who we think should win (because they killed their roles and deserve the award).

Also, we have few categories where we don't understand how some actors and films made the list, and think they shouldn't win.
Here we go;
