He opines that the movie as a foreign production and sees no reason why it should be nominated to compete with the local ones.

Eddie Nartey stated in an Instagram post that it was unfair for a six (6) million dollar budget movie to compete with local movies.

“Now how come BEAST OF NO NATION got 15 nominations? BEAST OF NO NATION??? this 6 million budget dollar movie is now competing with the local movies? I thought it was GHANA MOVIE AWARDS, an event to honor filmmakers locally. Why don't you put it in the African Movie of the year category since I consider it as an international movie? This is so unfair to the young ones who are on the field trying to make this industry stand with the little in them. If you want to award BEAST OF NO NATION because it was shot here in Ghana then do it in a different way but don't let it compete with Our local movies,” he noted.

Eddie Nartey also chided fellow actors for not raising concerns.

“It's quite unfortunate that a couple of actors and actresses have worked so hard this year and are not appreciated with even nominations. THIS IS SAD. I don't blame the organizers that much but the very actors and actresses who will complain behind close doors and be mute in the open about such issues. If you want a change, then be part of creating that change. It's just a SHAME,” he stated.

It would be recalled that actress Yvonne Nelson registered her misgivings upon realising the movie had been submitted for nominations saying, it does not qualify for a nomination because it is not a Ghanaian production.
