HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Movieguide® has announced the semifinalists for two of its top awards. The Ten Best Movies for Families and the Ten Best Movies for Mature Audiences will be presented Feb. 15, 2013 at the star-studded 21st Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala in Universal City, Calif.
Hosted by Joe Mantegna ("Criminal Minds") and his daughter, Gia Mantegna, the Movieguide® Awards are attended yearly by the top studio heads and executives in Hollywood, and honor films with uplifting and family-appropriate messages.
These two categories of best movies are awarded to movies suitable for families and mature audiences, respectively, which exhibit moral values and/or a redemptive storyline. Any feature film can be nominated, regardless of box office gross or number of major stars. Movies rated G or PG are eligible for the "Family" category, while those rated PG-13 or R may be nominated in the "Mature" category.
"The Movieguide® Awards are one of the only places where the greats of Hollywood walk side by side with the entertainment industry's youngest and most promising newcomers," says Dr. Ted Baehr, publisher and founder of Movieguide®.
