Tuck into your popcorn peeps, SAFTAs 2018 is gonna be one helluva show if these developments are anything to go by...
Generations: The Legacy has officially snubbed the awards and won't be seen on any of the nominee lists this year, including the public vote for Most Popular Soapie:
The nominees for this category were announced this week in the build-up to the announcement of all the nominees on Friday, 2 February.
Interesting to note is that Skeem Saam entered this year after last year's boycott alongside Muvhango.
It's no surprise that Muvhango still isn't on the list because we all know that Duma Ndlovu's production company Word of Mouth Pictures has had huge issues
with the awards for years and now Gen producer Mfundi Vundla has joined the rebellion.
TVSA asked for comment on why Gen hasn't entered and we received this statement from the show's publicist Gaaratwe Mokhethi:
We have been entering the SAFTAS since the inception of Generations: The Legacy in 2014, hoping our talent will be recognized but unfortunately our cast hasn’t received such recognition from the SAFTAS. We opted not to submit entries for SAFTAS12.
We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our growing share in viewership and would like to thank our viewers for making us one of the biggest shows in the country; it’s their consistent recognition that propels us to keep telling ground breaking stories that create a discourse in our society.
