This just in: old people love The Irishman! I know these days we all like to sit around and say “Okay, boomer!” at the olds, but in this case, let’s all agree they got something right. The AARP’s 19th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards were held over the weekend, and Martin Scorsese‘s mob epic claimed the top honor. They also gave Adam Sandler Best Actor – a category the Academy didn’t even bother to nominate him in this year. Maybe we should all just ignore the Oscars this year and focus on the AARP. They might be on to something.
