Movies for the AARP Crowd?

By admin Published: January 26, 2007

No mockery here. We're talking about movies that have won kudos from AARP. Here's the press release:

AARP The Magazine, the world’s largest circulation magazine, today announced the winners of its sixth annual Movies for Grownups Awards. From Best Movie to Breakaway Accomplishment to Best Actor and Actress, AARP The Magazine’s Movies for Grownups Awards honors a range of cinematic accomplishments in 13 categories, all of which are featured in the March/April issue, available February 1, 2007.

Top honors went to The Last King of Scotland—an unblinking look at the rise and brutal reign of Uganda strongman Idi Amin—which was named this year’s Best Movie for Grownups. ...

Donald Sutherland was awarded Best Actor 50 and Over for his role as a defiant Parkinson’s patient in Aurora Borealis. And Helen Mirren, starring as Queen Elizabeth in the days surrounding the death of Princess Diana in The Queen, was named Best Actress 50 and Over. Clint Eastwood took the top honor as best director for his two-part World War II saga, Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima.

The 2007 Movies For Grown-Ups Award winners will be presented with the coveted La Chaise d’Or trophy—The Golden Chair—a whimsical trophy in the shape of a Barcalounger, at a private gala awards dinner held at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles on February 6, 2007.
