MovieguideThe 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.

“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.
