KDAfricanOscarAubert nominated for Best Supporting Actress in African Oscars
KD Aubert (Friday After Next, The Scorpion King, Soul Plane) will be attending this year’s African Oscars Award Ceremony, held in the Legendary Warner Theatre in Washington D.C. and broadcasted internationally. 
 Aubert’s role as ‘Stacey’ in the 2012 film Turning Point garnered her nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Diaspora Film for the 2013 Nollywood & African Film Critics Awards (African Oscars). The African Oscars does more than to recognize the excellence of professionals in the African film industry, it awards acclaim to humanitarians, dignitaries and government officials who have positively impacted the lives of citizens, making its guest list an impressive collection of affluent and revered public figures from around the world. Confirmed guests range from Goodluck Jonathan (President of Nigeria) to Curtis Jackson (aka Rap artist 50 cent). 
 Hailed as “the highest U.S.A. based awards honoring excellence in African filmmaking” by The Nollywood Film Critics USA, The African Oscars is the only awards ceremony to assemble movie stars, public figures, and celebrities from every African country and around the world under one roof for the most prestigious African film awards event in North America. The Nollywood Film Critics USA is the official movie review organization for Nollywood and African films and headed by Founder and Senior Film Critic Dr. Victor O.Olatoye. 
 Nominees like KD Aubert are capturing a new generation of Nollywood Films within the Hollywood landscape, showcasing how “Turning Point is unique in its casting. While similar scale Nollywood films explore sociopolitical themes, [this film] is a pure character driven story that is easy to relate to” (NigeriaShowBiz.com). Turning Point has also been nominated for Best Drama, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography in the Diaspora Film Categories in the 2013 African Oscars. 
 The red-carpet ceremony is scheduled for September 14th at The Warner Theatre in Washington D.C. and will be broadcasted internationally. Special Guest Performers include Yemi Sax, Jerri Jheto, Jennifer Eliogu, and Katumbella.
