Universal Pictures

With awards season ramping up, nominations are coming fast and furious from several organizations, and on Thursday, the grown-ups had their say.

AARP The Magazine has released its picks for its annual Movies for Grownups Awards: the autobiographical Steven Spielberg film, The Fabelmans, led the pack with six nominations. Recognized were Spielberg in the Best Director category and the movie itself for a Best Film trophy.

Tying for fifth place was another movie that will likely make an Oscars appearance, the madcap, multiverse adventure Everything Everywhere All at Once, which picked up five nominations, tying with Viola Davis The Woman King.

Stage and screen vet Alan Cumming will return as host of AARP The Magazine‘s Movies for Grownups Awards, broadcast nationwide by Great Performances on Friday, February 17, at 9 p.m. ET on PBS.
