Actress and filmmaker Candace Cameron Bure (“Full House” fame) has a major reason to be proud. She won big at the 2023 Movieguide Awards, which took place on February 10.

Bure’s movie “A Christmas…Present,” which she executive produced, won the award for “Best Family TV Movie” and she was also honored with the Grace Award for “Most Inspired Performance” for playing Maggie Larson in the film.

The movie was also nominated for the “Epiphany Prize.”

Lesley Demetriades directed “A Christmas…Present,” and the screenplay was written by Rick Garman. It was conceived and developed through her Candy Rock Entertainment venture, “A Christmas…Present,” and this marked Bure’s first project with Great American Family.

“Tonight, was a really good night, I took home two awards. I was shocked and I am on Cloud 9, and I feel very humbled and grateful. I am more grateful than most people would understand,” Bure posted on her Instagram story.

“I really feel honored to be recognized, and I am so proud of my company too, this is our first movie out of the gate,” she added.

“Thank you to the cast and crew for creating such a special movie,” directed Lesley Demetriades remarked on social media.

In return, Bure thanked Demetriades for her guidance and leadership. “Lesley, thank you for leading us in this beautiful movie. A huge congratulations to us all. What a blessing,” Bure exclaimed.
