Bob Marley: One Love wins Best Movie at 2024 BET Awards


by Kevin Jackson (Jamaica Observer) Bob Marley: One Love, the Paramount Pictures biopic based on the life of the reggae legend, won in the Best Movie category at Sunday night’s staging of the 2024 BET Awards.

The awards ceremony took place at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, USA.

Marley’s daughter, Cedella, who was one of the producers of the film — her brother Ziggy and mom Rita were also producers — was quite upbeat when the Jamaica Observer caught up with her on Monday for a comment.

“It’s a great feeling. The BET Awards are all about recognising and celebrating black American entertainment and culture. One Love winning best movie is a reflection of Bob Marley’s resonance with black culture in the United States. Daddy spent time living and working in Delaware and knew what it was to be a black man in America during that time. As he said in Roots Rock Reggae, ‘Play I on the R&B. I want all MY people to see’,” said Cedella.

The other nominees in the Best Movie category were American Fiction, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, The Book of Clarence, The Color Purple, The Equalizer 3, and
The Little Mermaid.
