The Awards Gala will be held on Friday, Jan. 24, 2020, at the historic Avalon Theater in the heart of Los Angeles and broadcast on Hallmark Channel at a later date.

"Each of these movies represents how family, faith and values continue to excel at the box office," says Gala Producer and Movieguide® President Robby Baehr. "We are so excited about the messages these movies share and how they inspire us to live in a way that blesses others."

The event will honor the best 2019 movies for families, best 2019 movies for mature audiences, the Epiphany Prizes® for both the most inspiring movie and the most inspiring television program, the Faith & Freedom Awards® for both Movies and Television, and the Grace Prizes® for both the most inspiring performance in movies and for most inspiring performance in television.

Dr. Baehr will present highlights of Movieguide®'s "2020 Report to the Entertainment Industry," which analyzes all movies from the major and independent studios in regard to their box performance and the movie's content across thousands of data points.
