Veteran 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. The Grace Awards are different because they honor performances that uplift the human spirit and inspire people to strengthen their relationship with God and Jesus Christ.”
The list of 15 nominees, in alphabetical order according to the title of the individual movie or TV program, includes:
Most Inspiring Performance for Movies
DO YOU BELIEVE?
Most Inspiring Performance for Television
A.D.: THE BIBLE CONTINUES
Emmett J Scanlan
Juan Pablo Di Pace
CHICAGO FIRE: Forgiving, Relentless, Unconditional

An hour-long version of the 24th Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala will be telecast on the REELZChannel at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET on February 22 and again at 9 p.m. PT/12 midnight ET on February 24.
At the Faith & Values Awards, Dr. Baehr will also present highlights from Movieguide®’s annual Report to the Entertainment Industry, a comprehensive financial analysis of the movie business showing what kinds of movies and what kinds of movie content moviegoers favor the most with their hard-earned money.
