The 19th Annual AARP Movies For Grownups Awards took place Saturday evening with Martin Scorsese‘s “The Irishman” taking Best Picture as well as Best Director for Scorsese. The awards were hosted by Tony Danza.
The award for Readers’ Choice went to Marielle Heller’s “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” which also garnered the award for best Supporting Actor for Tom Hanks, who embodies Fred Rogers in the film.
The award for Best Intergenerational Film was presented to Lulu Wang’s “The Farewell.” Wang spoke upon receiving the award:
“I made this film to honor my grandmother,” she said. “Whether it’s different generations or different cultures, I think the thing that we have to do is to learn to disagree better. We have to do it with more respect, we have to do it with more grace. We have to take care of each other generation after generation.”
The awards ceremony took place Jan 11 at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills and will be broadcast Sunday, Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. ET on PBS.
