Unlike awards shows such as the Golden Globes (which are very clearly for children), AARP the magazine’s Movies for Grownups Awards announced their top picks in a dignified manner. In an elegant email (as opposed to the mess of a Zoom awards show), the magazine declared today that The United States vs. Billie Holiday had nabbed the coveted Best Picture for Grownups award, while Aaron Sorkin won two nods for his work on The Trial of the Chicago 7. Other Oscar favorites, such as Mank, Minari, One Night in Miami, and Da 5 Bloods, also received prizes, while Jodie Foster won for The Mauritanian. Hopefully she’s in her pajamas again for this ceremony? On the TV side, The Queen’s Gambit and This Is Us won in the awards’ inaugural television categories. If you want to watch the grown-ups win, the show will be broadcast on March 28 at 8 p.m. EST on PBS and hosted by verified adult Hoda Kotb. Check out the full list of winners below:
