AARP The Magazine unveiled the winners of the 21st annual Movies for Grownups® Awards, featuring honorees Everything Everywhere All at Once, Women Talking, The Whale, Living, Till and more, as Top Gun: Maverick was awarded Best Picture/Best Movie for Grownups, the evening’s top honor.

A memorable moment from the evening was Jamie Lee Curtis who received this year’s Career Achievement Award, which was presented to her by Brian Tyree Henry. “At the end of the day, what I love most about grownups is that we are more alike than different – grown ups suit up and show up each day, regardless of the way our cards were dealt,” said Curtis. “It’s the beauty of grownups and I’m honored to be considered one because it’s a badge of honor that I wear proudly on my face, on my body, in my mind and in my soul and I’m grateful for AARP tonight for this beautiful recognition.”

Additional noteworthy moments included Hong Chau who presented the award for Best Actor to Brendan Fraser for his role in The Whale.
