The winners of the 2015 Ghana Movie Awards were unveiled on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, with “Beast of No Nation” winning 12 awards out of 15 nominations.

Ghanaian actress who was against the film being nominated, took to her social media pages to express her disappointment, this time around describing awards as 'meaningless,' and 'pointless.'

According to the actress who won the 'Best Actress in a Leading Role' award, her crew warned her about submitting her movie.

"Honestly tho....Shouldn't have submitted my movie! Crew told me.Awards are meaningless! Pointless! Thanks but no thanks. GMA? A big JOKE," she tweeted.

Earlier, Yvonne Nelson stated in an interview that the much talked about movie “Beasts of No Nation,” doesn’t qualify to be nominated as a Ghanaian movie.

According to her, it is quite unfair to nominate the high budget movie alongside low budget Ghanaian movies.

“It’s not fair to all of us if they submit that movie because it is not a Ghanaian production. The fact that it was shot in Ghana doesn’t make it a Ghanaian production. So I won’t agree to that. If we are trying to promote our own, why will we go for a foreign production? You cannot compare a Hollywood production to a Ghanaian movie. The budgets are totally different,” she had said.
