London (ANI): Robert De Niro has been honoured with a lifetime achievement award at an event organized by AARP The Magazine. The Taxi Driver bagged the annual lifetime trophy at the ceremony in Los Angeles.
Jeff Bridges won Best Actor for his role in Crazy Heart, while Dame Helen Mirren took Best Actress for The Last Station. The magazine editors voted Invictus, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Morgan Freeman, as the Best Movie for Grownups.
"In 2009, 50plus actors and filmmakers took center-stage on the silver screen, turning in performances and films that were riveting and nothing short of daring," the Daily Express quoted Bill Newcott, entertainment editor of the magazine, as saying.
He added: “Tackling war, apartheid, sexuality and adding real depth to romantic comedies, the 50plus Hollywood community shows once again that they are an integral, much-needed element of the film industry."
