“The iconic talents we honor this year drive a cultural change in the way aging Americans are perceived and valued,” AARP film and TV critic Tim Appelo said. “They inspire us to think about life differently. And we’re thrilled that the Movies for Grownups Awards are back as a live event, celebrating a profusion of grownup masterworks we could scarcely have imagined when we started the awards decades ago.”
