‘I Can Only Imagine’ Among Top Movieguide Award Nominees January 12, 2019

Last year’s faith-based breakout hit I Can Only Imagine starring Dennis Quaid, Cloris Leachman, and Trace Adkins is among the top nominees for the 27th Movieguide® Awards, which will be held Feb. 8 in Los Angeles. The film, directed by the Erwin brothers, is recognized in the categories of Best Movies for Families, Epiphany Prize for Most Inspiring Movie, Grace Award for Movies, along with other faith-based films such as God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness and Paul, An Apostle of Christ.

I Can Only Imagine, directed by Andrew and Jon Erwin and starring Dennis Quaid and John Michael Finley, releases March 16. Poster courtesy of Lionsgate.

Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide®, announced the ten movies which will compete for a $25,000 prize for Best Family Movie of the Year, an award supported by a grant from the Ware Foundation.

The awards will be hosted by Lori Loughin and Jack Wagner of the Hallmark Channel series When Call the Heart, which is also nominated for a Grace Award for Television and an Epiphany Prize for Television.

The event will honor the Best 2018 Movies for Mature Audiences, the Epiphany Prizes for the Most Inspiring Movie and Television Program, The Faith & Freedom Awards for Movies and Television, and the Grace Awards for Most Inspiring Performance in Movies and Television.

“These movies are not only family-friendly, entertaining and well crafted,” Dr. Baehr said. “They also have strong stories which reveal the good, the true and the beautiful. That’s what the Movieguide Awards are all about.”

Community Coffee is the title sponsor of the event, who will award one special young person $10,000 and the Community Superstar Award for their positive contributions to their community.
