Isibaya has cleaned up at the South African Film and Television Awards this year with 10 nominations, while Generations – still the most watched Soapie in South Africa – got not a single nod.

Other big nominees are Binnelanders with nine nominations, Isidingo with five and 7de Laan with seven.

Best TV actress this year is going to see some fierce competition – Kgomotso Christopher is nominated for Isidingo, Tema Sebopedi also for Isidingo, Desiree Gardner and Brumilda van Rensburg for Binnelanders and Masasa Mbangeni for Scandal.

The win for TV’s favourite man will run between Paul Luckhoff for Binnelanders, Pallance Dladla for Isibaya and Justin Strydom for Isidingo.

The nominations for best feature film are, as usual, a surprising hit and miss – the three in contention for 2015 will be I-Number Number directed by Donovan Marsh, Faan se trein by Koos Roets and Four Corners by Giant Films.

Competition is stiff this year and winners will be announced at the glittering Safta ceremony later in the year.
