Beast of No Nation grabbed 10 awards at the 2015 Ghana Movie awards.

Cary Fukunaga’s Beast of No Nation grabbed the highest number of awards at the Ghana Movie Awards, in spite of the criticisms the award organizers faced from Ghanian movie stake holders like Yvonne Nelson, who made it known that the movie should have been kept out of the awards because it’s not a Ghanian movie.

Surprisingly, the award’s biggest critic, Yvonne Nelson, came in second on the list of winners, with 3 awards.  Although she and “most” Ghanian actors boycotted the awards, which was held last night at the Accra International Conference Centre
