Generations absent from Royalty Soapie Awards nods

GENERATIONS is completely absent and shut out from this year’s Royalty Soapie nominations.

Isibaya and Scandal scooped 16 nominations each while 7 de Laan took 14. The awards, which were created by former Generations actress Winnie Modise, have always struggled to get all of the country’s soapies on board and this year is no different.

Rhythm City, Skeem Saam and Zabalaza did not enter any of their actors while new soapies Generations: The Legacy and Skeem Saam didn’t fall within the timeframe to be eligible to participate.

Viewers will get to vote for the winner in several categories in the Royalty Soapie Awards which include outstanding lead actor, outstanding lead actress, outstanding male villain, outstanding female villain, outstanding supporting actor, outstanding supporting actress, outstanding newcomer and most popular soapie.

SABC 2’s Venda soap Muvhango only scored one nomination. The nominees for the 2015 Royalty Soapie Awards for which viewers can vote, are:
