The Izu Ojukwu film 76 has stunned the film world yet again. Following its huge opening in the box office and after sweeping the top awards at the African film festival, the period drama 76 has reminded movie goers why it was so wes and cinema goers the world over.

At the nominee dinner of the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards for 2017, it swept the board with an all time record number of nominations in 14 categories. All this in a year that has seen the bar in African film raised to what is quite clearly, international standards.

The 14 nominations were in the following categories:
1. Best Musical Score
2. Best Cinematographer
3. Best Writer
4. Best lighting direction
5. Best Makeup
6. Best Costume design
7., Best Actor in a lead role
8. Best Actress in a lead role
9. Best Film (West Africa)
10. Best Art Director
11. Best Sound
12. Best Picture Editor
13. Best Director
14. Best Overall Film.

Reacting to the nominations, the Executive Producer, Tonye T.J.T Princewill expressed pleasant surprise at the sheer number of nominations the movie received, especially in light of the quality of films that were on offer, but was quick to highlight that the scope of nominations was a testimony to the strength of the team behind 76 and their sheer commitment in their different departments.
"I am happy for the team, they worked so hard and sacrificed so much to take their art to another level. Tonight is for them. I hope the public appreciate their work too and do them the honour of going to the Africa Magic website to vote for all of them. While doing that, my co-Executive Producer, Adonijah Owiriwa and I would love for you to vote for us too."
