Entertainment: The Movie Guide Awards—One Award Show I Enjoyed Watching

by Joanne Troppello


The Movie Guide Awards were held last night, February 24th in the historic Avalon Theater in Los Angeles. This award show was hosted by Jen Lilley and Andrew Walker and aired on the Hallmark Drama Channel.


Years ago, I used to watch all the Hollywood award shows like The Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards, American Music Awards, and Video Music Awards.


However, in recent years—especially since President Trump was elected in 2016—all these shows have become political. I stopped watching even before that happened, but the politicization of everything in our culture, even coming from the Hollywood elites frustrates me. I will not watch these award shows.


Although, I am a fan of the Movie Guide which reviews movies that are ideal for watching with your family. I recently found out that they host an award show and I watched it for the first time last night.


I was pleasantly surprised that this show was not politicized at all. I actually enjoyed watching it. The other nice thing was that the show was not long and drawn out with so many awards. The length of the show was one hour.


Movies and TV shows are nominated for awards in the following categories:


  • Epiphany Prize to the Most Inspiring Movie

  • Epiphany Prize to the Most Inspiring TV Program

  • Faith & Freedom Award for Movies

  • Faith & Freedom Award for TV

  • Best Movie for Families

  • Best Movie for Mature Audiences

  • Grace Award for Most Inspiring Performance for Movies

  • Grace Award for Most Inspiring Performance for TV


Highlights from the Award Show


One of the highlights of the evening was when Colton Dixon performed his new song, Miracles. I love that song and it was a very powerful performance.


Another highlight was when Regis Philbin gave a touching tribute to Kathie Lee Gifford as she was awarded the Visionary Award for Furthering Faith & Values. I loved when she said that she’s been “walking with Jesus and He’s taken me on adventures since I was 12 years old”.


She went on to say, “God has a purpose and plan for all of us.” She remarked that she remembered watching The Restless Ones, a Billy Graham movie when she was 12 years old. That’s when she got saved and her life was never the same. She said she will “forever praise Him and thank Him.”
