|Founder of the Royalty Soapie Awards, Winnie Modise as Khethiwe Ngcobo on Generations|
Now with Total exposure (thank goodness) we hope that it is final and the hassles with who to talk to about the awards will end.
The nominees for the awards, which will be held in Durban on 2 November 2013, will be announced in October. They were supposed to be announced mid-September, but after they weren't I sent out requests to their previous PR company and there was no response. Finally I got wind that Total Exposure are now handling the account and they confirmed that the nominees for the awards will now be announced in October.
Here are the categories that some of our soap stars and also the behind the scenes people stand to get nominated in:
We now hope that the confusion will be put to bed and the awards will go off without a hitch. They still haven't announced who will host the awards show (how about a tag team effort of Anele Mdoda and Tumi Morake?) and also who will be the show director and producer. Yet they expect the awards to be like the Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.
We will be bringing you a weekly report on the state of the awards.
