Terry Pheto Nominated For Award Alongside Oprah Winfrey

Actress Terry Pheto has added yet another accolade to her list of achievements
The actress has been nominated for a Black Reel Award for her role as Winnie Mandela in the BET drama Madiba. Pheto received high praise internationally for her performance in the film, in which she stars alongside Laurence Fishburne.
She will go up against Sanaa Lathan, Loretta Devine, Oprah Winfrey and Nia Long in the Outstanding Actress, TV Movie/Limited Series category.

“In an interview with City Press earlier this year, Pheto revealed that the Madiba role was a dream for her: “I think when you have a dream, it scares you sometimes. This is my dream role. It’s a role I’ve always wanted to portray.”

In June, Black Reel announced the launch of a spin-off award solely for the small screen, the Black Reel Awards for TV. The ceremony will be held on 3 August.
