The AARP Movies for Grownups Awards were presented on Saturday at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and the Best Picture award went to Paramount’s most recent Best Picture candidate, Top Gun: Maverick.
The Tom Cruise-led sequel defeated rivals for the group’s top prize, including Elvis from Warner Bros., Everything Everywhere All at Once from A24, The Fabelmans from Universal/Amblin, Tár from Focus Features, Women Talking from Orion/UAR, and The Woman King from Sony.
With the Best Time Capsule award and the Best Director award going to Elvis’ Baz Luhrmann, the movie had the most wins of any on the night.
Brendan Fraser (The Whale) and Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All at Once) took up the top acting and leading actress awards, respectively.
The Old Man on FX won Best TV Series, and Jeff Bridges, the drama’s lead, won Best TV Actor in the TV categories. Sheryl Lee Ralph, a winner of an Emmy, was named Best TV Actress for ABC’s Abbott Elementary.
Jamie Lee Curtis also received the AARP Career Achievement Award tonight. The AARP uses its awards to highlight movies and television shows that speak specifically to viewers aged 50 and over.
The ceremony, which will be hosted by Alan Cumming tonight, will air on PBS’ Great Performances, the PBS website, and the PBS app on February 17 at 9 p.m. ET.
