Kevin Sorbo wins Grace Award for “Most Inspiring Performance…”

Kevin Sorbo garnered top honors last night at the 19th Annual MOVIEGUIDE® Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry as he took home the Grace Award for “Most Inspiring Performance in Movies in 2010.” He won for his excellent portrayal of Ben Walker in the film, What If…, directed by Dallas Jenkins and produced by Jenkins Entertainment.

Sorbo also hosted the event at the Hilton Universal City in Universal City, California. Movieguide® founder and publisher, Dr. Ted Baehr, attended, congratulating nominees and greeting guests.

“It was a nice night and an honor,” said Sorbo. “I am proud of the movie.”

“Most people wouldn’t have assumed Kevin Sorbo, Hercules, could play a part like this, with such a wide, but subtle emotional range,” Jenkins stated, “but, he was a natural from day one, and I hope this is one of many different types of roles he’ll play the rest of his career. I’m very proud of him.”

What If… received a Special Teddy Award in the category, “The Ten Best 2010 Movies for Families.”

The annual affair recognizes studio executives, producers, directors, actors and writers that reflect MOVIEGUIDE®’s “Best of the Year” movies. It entails several prizes, including the Grace Award for Inspiring Acting, the Faith & Freedom Awards for movies and television programs that positively impact the world community, the John Templeton Foundation supported Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays, and Epiphany Prizes for film and television.

    Thanks, Jan, for sharing this wonderful news. My sincerest congratulations to Kevin on winning the Grace Award, and to Dallas and the entire cast and crew for making such a memorable film.

    Sadly, my cable system still doesn’t offer the Gospel Music Channel, but I’ve spread the word to those who do… and encouraged them to get the DVD when it goes on sale March 1st. I’ll be getting a copy of it as well. 🙂
