Nominees Announced for Faith & Values Awards Acting Honors

24th MovieGuide Awards logoVeteran actors and some newcomers are among the 15 nominees for the Annual Grace Awards for Most Inspiring Performances in Movies & TV this year.

The two winners will be announced at the 24th Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry, to be held Friday, February 5, in the Grand Ballroom of the Universal Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

A variety of movie and TV stars are among the nominees for the Grace Awards, which are designed to honor “the best, most inspiring performances expressing God’s grace and love toward us as human beings.”

Dr. Ted Baehr, Co-Founder of the Faith & Values Awards, said, “Many acting awards are given to performances that provide extremely poor role models.
