“The United States vs. Billie Holiday,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” Sophia Loren (“The Life Ahead”) and Anthony Hopkins (“The Father”) are among the winners of the 2021 AARP Movies for Grownups Awards. For the past two decades, these kudos have promoted films for grownups by grownups, fighting for the 50-plus audience and industry ageism. They now also recognize achievements in television.
Hoda Kotb of NBC’s “The Today Show” and “Today with Hoda & Jenna” will host the virtual ceremony on March 28 on PBS’ “Great Performances.” Highlights of the two-hour show are slated to include Kotb’s interview with Career Achievement recipient George Clooney and speeches by many of the other winners.
