"For by Grace you have been saved through faith,
and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not the result of
works, so that no one may boast." - Ephesians 2:8.
The Grace Prize for Inspiring Acting in Movies & Television is
sponsored by Morgan H. Grace, Jr., and awarded annually, in the form of
a beautiful trophy and a monetary award to the actor or actress in a feature
motion picture or in a television show who, through their outstanding performances,
exemplify God's grace and mercy toward us as human beings.
Many other awards honor fine acting and entertaining performances, and
some awards honor morally distinctive portrayals by actors, but the Grace
Prize honors and encourages actors who bring a loftier and more spiritual
dimension to their craft, beyond humanitarian and ethical role-playing,
by reflecting the truth of God's grace and mercy.
The Grace Prize also aspires to stimulate spiritual wisdom, knowledge
and growth as part of the acting craft. We believe that by bringing a deeper
understanding of and love for God and His grace and mercy, actors and actresses
in their performances can inspire and uplift millions of moviegoers and
television viewers - and entire families and populations! - with a message
that transcends mere entertainment and escape.
