Joe Mantegna to Host 21st Annual MOVIEGUIDE® Awards Gala

Joe and Gia MontegnaTony Award winning actor Joe Mantegna, star of TV’s “Criminal Minds” and “Cars 2,” will co-host the 21st Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala with his actress daughter, Gia Mantegna, next week.

Each year, around OSCAR® time, MOVIEGUIDE® hosts its annual Awards Show, where it honors the studio executives, producers, directors, actors and writers of the best family-friendly movies and TV shows of the previous year. It also rewards the best films for mature audiences and awards two $100,000 Epiphany Prizes and the $50,000 Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays (sponsored by grants from Sir John Templeton and the John Templeton Foundation).

This year, the Gala will be held in Universal City, CA, on Friday, February 15 – about a week before the Oscars. Award presenters include Corbin Bernsen, Lou Gossett Jr., Jeremy London, and Bailee Madison, among others. The Gala will also feature performances by Brandon & Savannah, Gloria Loring, and The Carmelite Nuns.

In addition to the awards, MOVIEGUIDE®’s Founder and Publisher, Dr. Ted Baehr, will present his highly anticipated annual statistical analysis based on MOVIEGUIDE’s reviews. His analysis has shown studio executives and filmmakers each year that family-friendly, spiritually uplifting content can significantly increase the profitability of their movies.

The MOVIEGUIDE® Awards are by invitation only and are extended to honorees and industry professionals.

More information about tickets or sponsorship packages is available by contacting MOVIEGUIDE® by phone at 805-383-2000.
