The Family Film Awards are airing tonight on the REELZ Channel at 5 pm, and Advocate Channel has an inside look at all the festivities!
Ann-Margaret Gets Honored
Everyone there, including former Dancing With the Starschampion Julianne Hough, will be there to pay tribute to legendary actress Ann-Margaret, who is receiving the lifetime achievement award at this year's festivities. Ann-Margaret is a longtime actress and dancer who's starred in films like Bye Bye Birdie and Viva Las Vegas.
Kate Flannery, who brilliantly portrayed Meredith Palmer on The Office, said of the lifetime award, "Ann Margaret - I can't think of one performance that wasn't spectacular, magical, original".
A Super Host
Speaking of the spectacular, who's more spectacular than Superman himself? Dean Cain will be hosting the ceremony that honors family above all else. Dean shared:
"For me, I've been preparing for this the last 20 something years, raising my son. Also, as a kid growing up, there were shows that our family watched together. Some of those were Happy Days, The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family"
And, speaking of The Brady Bunch, the entire cast has been honored with the iconic Television Award. The show ran from 1969-1974, and captivated audience who wanted to make the Brady family even bigger. Lloyd Schwartz, the main producer of The Brady Bunch, shared his thoughts on the prestigious honor.
"It's been a great thing to have people know every episode, and ask questions about it. You know, I threw the ball that hit Marsha in the nose, and I'm kind of afraid that might be on my tombstone"
On the movie side of things, screenwriter Bob Gale will be presented with the prestigious Film Award for writing the iconic Back to the Future trilogy. According to Gale, the moment he knew the series would be a hit is when he realized, "Oh my god, Michael J. Fox is Marty McFly".
