'The Last Jedi' Wins The AARP's "Best Movie For Grownups" Award

By: Dominic Jones

We're still about a month away from the Oscars, where Star Wars: The Last Jedi is nominated for four awards, however that hasn't stopped the latest Star Wars movie from picking up an award.  The AARP held their 17th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards last night and The Last Jedi won the award for "Best Movie For Grownups."  The film beat other nominees Get Out, Lady Bird, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

The AARP's website described the film's win as follows,

"For 40 years, Star Wars has been the movie of our generations — the generations 50 and older — and The Last Jedi is the episode that honors them all. In an industry that's too often preoccupied with youth, the film respects the past, taking us back to fond memories — yet it is also of the moment, innovative, vital and in touch with a vast public. And speaking of touch, Mark Hamill has just the right one as an older and wiser Luke Skywalker. In Jedi, the actor and his character passed the baton to a new generation. Hamill and costar Kelly Marie Tran presented director Rian Johnson with our top film award."

Although the winners have been announced, the ceremony won't air on PBS until February 23rd.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Last Jedi on their win!
