Performances that Transcend

Jeff Bridges, Gregg Kinnear, Phil Robertson, Regina King and Kevin Sorbo are Among the Lead Nominees for Acting Honors

Veteran actors and some startling 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 23rd Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry, airing on REELZ Channel on February 21st.

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.”

The Faith & Values Awards are sponsored by the Christian Film & Television Commission®, which supports positive Christian content in TV and movies.

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:
