The 15th Annual Movies for Grownups® Awards were held tonight at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, celebrating 2015’s standout filmmakers, actors, actresses and movies with unique relevance for the 50-plus audience.  Sponsored by AARP Credit Cards from Chase, proceeds from this year’s Movies for Grownups® event will support AARP Foundation’s work in the Los Angeles area to create and advance effective solutions to help struggling people 50 and older secure the essentials.

“We acknowledge tonight’s distinguished awardees for their dedication to creating and sharing stories that resonate with and are relevant to people 50 and over,” said Myrna Blyth, AARP Senior Vice President and Editorial Director. “We also applaud the contributions made by those in the film industry who are helping to disrupt aging by exploring and challenging the conventional thinking on what it means to grow older.”

Highlights from the evening included a touching tribute to Career Achievement honoree Michael Douglas, whose award was presented by Bette Midler.  His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, joined Douglas for the event.  Jane Fonda presented the Best Actress statue to her Grace and Frankie co-star Lily Tomlin for Grandma, and Lou Gossett Jr. presented Morgan Freeman with the Best Grownup Love Story honor for his role in 5 Flights Up.

In other award highlights: Host Kathy Griffin kept the energy high with self-deprecating jokes and singer Thelma Houston performed “Don’t Leave Me this Way” from The Martian, complete with disco balls turning the awards ballroom into a nightclub.
