Bryan Cranston, Lily Tomlin among film stars honored by AARP


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Michael Douglas was honored with a career achievement by the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards.

The star of “Fatal Attraction” and many other films joked at Monday’s ceremony that his assistant mistakenly told him he was receiving an award for his work in adult films.

The newspaper drama “Spotlight” was selected as best picture at the 15th annual ceremony presented by the advocacy group AARP to stars over age 50 and the films that speak to that audience.

Mark Rylance was chosen as best supporting actor for “Bridge of Spies,” while Bryan Cranston won the best actor trophy for “Trumbo.”

Lily Tomlin was honored as best actress for “Grandma,” while Diane Ladd was awarded the best supporting actress trophy for “Joy.”
