The AARP Honors Top Gun: Maverick!


To be honest, the AARP naming Top Gun: Maverick the best film of 2022 is perhaps the least surprising moment of the 2022 awards season.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love Top Gun: Maverick and it’s my pick for the best of 2022.  But I don’t think there was ever any doubt that it was going to win with an organization made up of people who saw the first Top Gun when it was originally released in theaters.

Anyway, here are all the AARP winners!  You can see all of the nominees by clicking here.
