The Movieguide Awards Results

movieIt took a bit of sleuthing, but the results of the 24th Annual Movieguide Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry are in!

So, without further ado, and without any further understanding or clarity about who makes the decision of who wins these awards, I give you:

The Winners of the 24th Annual Movieguide Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry (and the link to where I found out that they’d won):

The Most Inspiring Performance for Television:

Alyvia Alyn Lind, Gerald McRaney, and Jennifer Nettles, Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors

The Most Inspiring Performance for Movies:

Karen Abercrombie, War Room

The Best Movie for Mature Audiences:

The 33

The Best Movie for Families:

Home

The Bradley Foundation Faith & Freedom Award:

Joy

And the two biggest prizes of the evening…

Where you get a nice plaque and $100,000 for winning…

The $100,000 Epiphany Prize to the Most Inspiring TV Program of 2015:

Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors

The $100,000 Epiphany Prize to the Most Inspiring Movie of 2015:

War Room

Fun fact, this makes the third movie for the Kendricks to win the big prize at Movieguide, out of their five movies. I’d say they are officially the team to beat when it comes to the Movieguide Awards.

To see the festivities in all of their glory, you can watch on Feb. 22 and again two days later on the Reelz Channel.

By the way, does anyone know how one could get their hands on this report that Movieguide releases? Also, if anyone at Movieguide would be gracious enough to explain to me the process of how the winners are selected, I would love to write an article about it.

  1. When I feel in need of something to do, I look up the latest news on the Christian movie industry.

    I found this blog post, saw this line — “…if anyone at Movieguide would be gracious enough to explain to me the process of how the winners are selected, I would love to write an article about it.” — and remembered an interview with a person from Movieguide who explained how the award show works.

    Here is the link to the interview:

    Here is the relevant question and answer:

    Who exactly votes on the Movieguide awards?
    The awards are determined by objective, biblical standards looking at the three and four star reviewed movies, the acceptability ratings (to determine the family versus mature audience contenders/nominees according to the appropriate age level) and the qualitative and quantitative analysis in our CONTENT section, including the movie’s dominant worldview, asking whether the movie is primarily moral, redemptive and inspirational rather than merely humanitarian (see the explanation below of our Quality and Acceptability Ratings. The reviewers help determine the ratings and the CONTENT analysis, based on our objective, Bible-centered, and child- and family-friendly criteria based on a traditional understanding of the biblical text and years of scientific research on the impact of media on children and families.

    • Thanks, Timothy.

      Although their answer still didn’t answer the question. I have a feeling I know the answer, and I have a feeling that it is possibly one person, but that’s just a feeling.

      But, I’m interested to read this Christ and Pop Culture article, and the article that was originally written about Movie Guide. I’m also wondering how much MG has changed since that was written in 2008.

      Cheers!
      Nate
