Colman Domingo A Double-Winner at the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards

Colman Domingo is the beau of the retired community…

The winners of the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards have been announced, with the 54-year-old Belizean-Guatemalan American actor taking home two awards.

Colman DomingoDomingo was named Best Actor for his performance as Bayard Rustin in Netflix’s Rustin.

Rustin served as an advisor to Martin Luther King Jr. and dedicated his life to the quest for racial equality, human rights and worldwide democracy. However, as an openly gay Black man, he has been all but erased from the civil rights movement he helped build.

Additionally, Domingo and his The Color Purple cast mates took home the award for Best Ensemble.

AARP’s awards spotlight films and television content that feature crucial issues, thoughtful storylines and top performances that speak directly to the 50-plus audience.

“It’s been a good year for shows and movies by and for people over 50,” said AARP TV and film critic Tim Appelo. “Grownup talent and stories are being recognized across the board, and ageism in Hollywood does seem to be gradually eroding, with help from AARP. In 2000, shortly before the Movies for Grownups Awards began, only one of the top 10 box office stars was over 50; today, half are.”
