AMAA 2020: Full list of winners

The first-ever virtual Africa Movie Academy Awards, hosted by actor, Lorenzo Menakaya, held on December 20, 2020, amid technical issues that caused a nearly two-hour delay.

Desmond Ovbiagele's 'The Milkmaid' was unsurprisingly the biggest winner of the night, taking home five wins out of eight nominations. Lesotho's Oscars 2020 submission, 'This Is Not A Burial, It's A Resurrection' directed Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese grabbed four wins.
