AARP The Magazine on Thursday unveiled its winners for the annual Movies for Grownups Awards, handing Hulu’s The United States vs. Billie Holiday its top prize, Best Picture/Best Movie for Grownups. Sophia Loren for Netflix’s The Life Ahead and Anthony Hopkins for Sony Classics’ The Father were named Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively, while Aaron Sorkin won for both directing and the screenplay for Netflix’s The Trial of the Chicago 7.

The group, which advocates for the 50-plus audience and with its awards highlights films that resonate with older viewers, also featured TV categories for the first time. NBC’s This Is Us won Best Series and Globes winners Catherine O’Hara (Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek) and Mark Ruffalo (HBO’s I Know This Much Is True) and Netflix’s limited series The Queen’s Gambit scored again here.
