Turning Point Pictures, the production house behind Leila Djansi’s ‘Ties That Bind’, has issued a directive to G.P Limited, organizers of Ghana Movie Awards, to immediately correct what it considers a misrepresentation on the nomination list of this year’s awards.
The award’s nominations, which came out last Saturday, had Leila Djansi and one Kevin Huie nominated as directors of ‘Ties That Bind’, in the Best Directing (English Language) category.
Turning Point Pictures has however stated that it recognizes Leila Djansi as the sole director of ‘Ties That Bind’, hence organizers of the awards should take note and make the appropriate correction.
 Kevin Huie, the production said, “was the 1st Assistant Director of ‘Ties that Bind’, a position that is limited to scheduling scenes, handling necessary paperwork on cast and keeping the production on time and schedule.
“A 1st assistant director does NOT direct. The Ghana Movie Awards team has been alerted on this error and we expect an immediate correction.”
Turning Point Pictures is famed for a number of productions in the United State of America but known in Ghana for its award winning movie, ‘Sinking Sands’.
Its latest film, ‘Ties That Bind’, singlehandedly topped this year’s Ghana Movie Awards nomination with a total of 21 nominations including Best Picture, Best Story and Best Editing.
Director Shirley Frimpong Manso’s ‘Adams Apples’ series came close with 20 nominations while Frank Raja’s ‘Somewhere in Africa’ followed with 14. 
Frimpong Manso as a producer topped nominations with 23 nods for her 5 movies- ‘Adams Apples 1, 2, 3, 4’ and ‘6 Hours To Christmas’.
‘6Hours To Christmas’ bagged three nominations- Best Actor Leading (Christ Attoh), Best African Movie Collaboration and Best Actress African Collaboration (Damilola Adegbeti).
Other movies that got nominations include ‘4play Reloaded’, ‘Masqueraders’, ‘Single Six’, ‘Bed of Roses’, ‘Why Marry’ and ‘Grave Yard’. 
This year’s nominations were released at a party at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi on Saturday November 26.
This year’s awards will come off on Christmas Day, December 25, to celebrate excellence in Ghana’s movie industry.
The awards, organized by G.P. Limited, in collaboration with Multi TV’s Cine AFRIK Channel and Film Producers Association of Ghana, is also to honor and recognize talents in Ghana’s improving movie and film industry.
Supported by Lufthansa Airlines, Golden Tulip Hotel (Accra, Kumasi and Lagos), United Airlines and Brussels Airlines, it promises to be exciting and one of a kind.

Hiplife icon Tinny, born Nii Addo Quaynor, is known for ‘mild’ sex scenes in his music videos but it has become obvious that he is taking the scenes to the next level.
It is unclear what level he is targeting but still photos from the set of the video shoot of his new song titled ‘Anaconda’, are sizzling.
Ghanaian music enthusiasts only have to keep their fingers crossed and watch out for something hot and sexy.
The video has some wild bikini scenes that can certainly raise something else other than eyebrows. Most of the scenes captured Tinny and bikini models doing their thing for the cameras.  
Already, there is a rising controversy over what he really meant by ‘Anaconda’. He is yet to make an official statement on it.
The new video, which will be on the screens very soon, is directed by one Sony, with Tinny playing an integral role in the making of the video. It featured other artistes as Jupiter and Lansaka.
