Sindi Dlathu makes history with nominations bagged from the South African Film and Television Awards. Nominees for this year were announced on Monday and the list has people talking. Sindi got nominated in the Best Actress in a Telenovela category for her role in The River, which is the 4th in a row; and she’s always nominated for each season, every year.
Phil Mphela who was observant about the big move announced in a tweet that reads:
Sindi Dlathu makes history! The actress is the only actor to have a SAFTAs nomination for the same role for all seasons of the show — you know she will get a nod for season 6 (final season) next year With her 5th nomination for playing Lindiwe Dikana on #TheRiver1Magic at the #SAFTAs17, Dlathu has set a record. Should she not get the nom for Season 6, the record stands for 5 seasons for same role.”
