Hallmark Drama Channel aired the annual Movieguide Awards show on Feb. 24, which recognizes Christian and family-friendly entertainment in Hollywood.
Unplanned received nominations in two categories: Faith & Freedom Award for Movies and Best Movie for Mature Audiences. They also nominated Unplanned star Ashley Bratcher for the Grace Prize for Most Inspiring Performance for Movies.
However, Bratcher announced that Hallmark erased Unplanned from the awards show.
Here’s her tweet below:
Outraged. Movieguide awards recently aired on @hallmarkdrama & @UnplannedMovie & I were nominated. We were the ONLY nominees who were not recognized. Hallmark has ERASED us from the show and refused to acknowledge us as nominees. This is completely UNACCEPTABLE.@hallmarkchannel pic.twitter.com/n6KZiXnp1k
