Why AARP’s Movies for Grownups crowns awards season
Now in its 20th year, Movies for Grownups is the only major Hollywood awards show that fights ageism in the industry and honors entertainment by and for people over 50 — and this year we added TV shows and stars to the winner’s circle (welcome to our world, Catherine O’Hara!). While this year’s broadcast is virtual and minus a real red carpet, it’s still full of big names and glamour. In the words of Movies for Grownups Career Achievement honoree George Clooney, “It’s fun!”
