The Movieguide Awards (also known as: the Christian Oscars) were held February 5, 2016 at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Universal City, California. They "celebrate the best, most inspiring movies and TV shows of the past year."

I thought I would share some special pictures below of the event! The awards will air on TV - February 22, 2016 at 7pm/6c. on the REELZ channel.

*Just a thought...

There are some Excellent Nominees Above, (including the amazing, fantastic little actress Alyvia Alyn Lind of Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors) but I was VERY Surprised NOT to See anything from Hallmark or UP included in the Movieguide Awards, and there are certainly plenty of movies from either network that could have been included.

If Movieguide is looking for the "best, most inspiring movies and TV shows"... then I think they should have nominated Hallmark's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered", from Producer Martha Williamson of "Touched by an Angel". The "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Truth be Told" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Impossible Dream" movies were filled with such incredible, heartfelt inspiration and unwavering patriotism. It's truly shocking this series was overlooked in this category again this year.

Also, Hallmark's "When Calls the Heart" is always filled with beautiful, inspiring moments, especially the last episode, "When Calls the Heart: New Year's Wish". The WCTH series was nominated last year, but forgotten this year.

And... then on UP, many of their original movies are faith inspired: including "I Am Potential" (a touching story of triumph over tragedy), "Like a Country Song" (starring Joel Smallbone of the Christian Brother Duo "For King and Country"), "Christian Mingle" (starring actress Lacey Chabert), and Many More...

Please share -- What did you think of the Nominees this Year?

    1. Oh, thank you, Linda... I always appreciate your responses and perspective. I think we are "kindred spirits"!

      I was surprised, however, not to see anything from Hallmark or UP, so I added in a statement regarding that above. ^

  3. Right again, Net, nothing from the "true" inspirational networks! I can't imagine how SSD and WCTH was overlooked with the excellent faith based storylines and acting abilities of the combined casts. Up has brought us great movies as you have mentioned plus the "Love Finds You" series of films that I adore!! I just don't get it....

  4. This is all new to me, but so glad these exist in the world! I agree, no SSD? Surprised.
