“The Irishman,” “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” “Marriage Story” and “Bombshell” were among the top nominees announced Tuesday for AARP The Magazine’s 19th annual Movies for Grownups Awards.

The awards honor “movies for grownups, by grownups” that advocate for the “50-plus audience” while “fighting industry ageism and encouraging films that resonate with older viewers.”

“The Irishman,” “Bombshell,” “Marriage Story” and “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” were all nominated for best picture/movie for grownups, along with “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “The Farewell,” “The Two Popes” and “Little Women.”

Robert De Niro earned a best actor nomination for his work in “The Irishman,” as did Jonathan Pryce for “The Two Popes.” Also nominated were Antonio Banderas for “Pain and Glory,” Eddie Murphy for “Dolemite is My Name” and Adam Sandler for “Uncut Gems.”

Nominations for best actress went to Isabelle Huppert for “Frankie,” Helen Mirren for “The Good Liar,” Julianne Moore for “Gloria Bell,” Alfre Woodard for “Clemency” and Renee Zellweger for “Judy.”

The awards will be presented Jan. 11 at the Beverly Wilshire hotel, in a ceremony hosted by Tony Danza. During the ceremony, actress Annette Bening will be presented with the Movies for Grownups Career Achievement Award.

The ceremony will be televised Jan. 19 on PBS.
