Kenneth Branagh won Best Picture/Best Movie for Grownups for Belfast, at AARP The Magazine’s annual Movies for Grownups Awards, explaining that it’s a memoir of a sort, about growing up during the conflict in Northern Ireland.

Other highlights of the evening included a special appearance by actress Saniyya Sidney, who presented the Best Actor award to “on-screen dad” Will Smith for his role in King Richard. Film director Aaron Sorkin presented the Best Actress award to Nicole Kidman for portraying both Lucille Ball and Lucille-Ball-as-Lucy-Ricardo in Being the Ricardos.

The star-studded ceremony also included a touching tribute from Academy Award winner Goldie Hawn to Movies for Grownups Career Achievement Award honoree Lily Tomlin, who spoke hilariously about being a proud grownup. Tomlin joins an illustrious list of previous AARP Movies for Grownups Career Achievement honorees, including George Clooney, Annette Bening, Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Shirley MacLaine, Helen Mirren, Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon and Sharon Stone.
