Budding actor, Joseph Otsiman who has earned a nomination at the 2016 African Movie Academy Awards (AMAAs) has stated that though he was disappointed for not receiving a nomination at the 2015 Ghana Movie Awards, it served as a form of motivation to his acting career.

Joseph has been nominated for Best Actor in Supporting Role for the role he played in a Nana Obiri Yeboah/Maximilian Claussen directed film, The Cursed Ones.

Speaking on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, Monday, Joseph said he was extremely happy when he heard that he has been nominated at the AMAAs.

“It was crazy. I expected the nomination at the Ghana Movie Awards which didn’t happen so I thought it wouldn’t be possible at the AMAAs… I can’t describe it. It was crazy,” he stated when asked how he felt when he heard the news.

On if the recognition by AMAAs makes him disappointed in Ghana Movie Awards for not nominating him, the actor replied in the negative.

“Not at all. I don’t know what the Ghana Movie Awards and AMAA considered before nominating. Maybe it’s not the same criteria. Though I was disappointed I couldn’t get the Ghana Movie Awards, I was okay. It just motivated me to work harder,” he noted.
