HOLLYWOOD — Hundreds of celebrities came out to celebrate faith and family friendly movies and TV shows at the 22nd Annual Movie Guide Awards in Hollywood.
With the Oscars just a few days away, Hollywood is getting a touch of religion. Two new studies show movie-goers prefer films with a Christian worldview.
These movies are getting more attention and praise.

“I’m a huge fan of those type of movies and TV shows and I want to see them pushed more to the forefront than have or be in a smaller award show,” comedian and master of ceremonies Bill Engvall said.
Actress A.J. Michalka received her honor for the inspirational movie “Grace Unplugged.”
“I want people to feel like they can make great, legitimate beautiful stories that really have a great message that families are going to not just be entertained by but also maybe talk about it in the car on the way home. To me that’s the biggest thing,” Michalka said.
Actor and Disney star Jacob Latimore starred in the film “Black Nativity,” a story about keeping your faith and family even in the tough times. It’s a message the young actor says is needed now more than ever.
“We have a lot of people that are lost in this world and we can insight people and reassure people on certain messages through movies, through film because they’re really just life on the screen,” he said. “I think ‘Black Nativity’ definitely played a part in that.”
