Nominees of the much-anticipated Royalty Soapie Awards were announced on Wednesday on SABC 1. Jamie Bartlett and Zola Nombona hosted the announcement.

The Royalty Soapie Awards celebrate the hard work they put into producing the excellent work we interact with on our screens. This year's prestigious awards are special as they mark a momentous five-year milestone celebration in an industry that showcases and emphasises the importance of story-telling in our lives.

"We are proud to celebrate the diverse and calibre of nominations from all over South Africa. It has been a difficult period in which the industry had to deal with a crippling global pandemic, but we have come this far. It is through film and television that life became bearable in difficult times, and for that, we thank our actors who continue to redefine, reinvent and reimagine their crafts for the viewers."
- Winnie Ntshaba, Founder and CEO of the Royalty Soapie Awards

"The five-year milestone has been a fantastic journey of seeing a dream coming to fruition. As an actress, I saw a need to create a platform where we celebrate the hard work of individuals and productions behind the soapie industry and the success it enjoys in the television industry currently, she added.

The awards introduced two new categories to the public vote category list. The public can now vote for their favourite nominated actors in the Viewer's Choice Best Actor and Viewer's Choice Best Actress.

Three lucky public voters stand a chance to rub shoulders with the who's who of the entertainment industry and enjoy the full VIP and red-carpet experience at the awards ceremony that is taking place on 18 September at the Radisson Hotel & Convention Centre OR Tambo, Johannesburg. Strict Covid-19 regulations will be observed for the safety of everyone in attendance.

Public voting lines open on 1 September and close at 18:00 on 14 September. On how to cast your vote, visit royaltysa.com.
