The winners of this year’s Movieguide® Awards were announced during the 22nd Annual Movieguide® Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry on Friday, February 7.
Also presented was the Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry by Movieguide®, which again showed clearly how moviegoers prefer clean, family-friendly movies with Christian faith and values.
“This was abundantly true in 2013,” said Dr. Ted Baehr, Founder and Publisher of Movieguide®, who was joined Friday evening by NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, who delivered the opening prayer at the Gala.
“For the first time ever, 90% of the Top 10 Movies in the United States and overseas were Movieguide® Award winners, from Iron Man 2 and Despicable Me 2 to Frozen, Gravity, and Man of Steel,” noted Dr. Baehr, who is a member of the NRB Board of Directors and Chairman of the NRB Film Standing Committee.
“Also, two-thirds of the Top 10, 60 percent, had overt references to Jesus Christ," he added.
