KUALA LUMPUR: Following the announcement of the Top 20 list of nominees for the upcoming Anugerah Meletop Era (AME2018), fans of ‘Fattzura’ (Fattah Amin and Nur Fazura) are upset to find that the popular newlyweds were not nominated for the Couple Meletop category.
Many expressed their frustrations in the comments section of Meletop’s official Instagram account, which turned out to be a heated topic among Netizens.
In a report by Harian Metro, the head of Astro’s content strategy and innovation Namanzee Haris said that the absence of Fattzura in the nomination list for the category was not done on purpose.
“The window of nominations for AME2018 is between Nov 15, 2016 and Nov 14 last year.
“The Couple MeleTop category is opened to all popular couples who have tied the knot before the closing date.
“In the case of Fattah and Fazura, they tied the knot on Nov 27 last year which makes them ineligible to compete in the category.
“We have to be fair as AME is a prestigious award show and nominees would have to go through a fair round of judgement and evaluation,” he said.
Among the celebrity couples nominated in the category include Stacy-Akim, Nora Danish-Nedim, Lisa Surihani- Yusry Abdul Halim, Shaheizy Sam- Syatilla Melvin and Amyra Rosli – Amar Bahrein.
AME2018 is set to take place on April 23 at Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam.
