LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lily Tomlin is this year’s recipient of AARP The Magazine’s Movies for Grownups Awards career achievement honor.

The 82-year-old actor and comedian will receive the honor at the AARP’s annual Best Movies and TV for Grownups ceremony. The 20th anniversary virtual event, hosted by Alan Cumming, will be telecast March 18 on PBS. Tomlin says “there are so few grownups in the world” and she is “happy to be one.” Tomlin, who has won six Emmys and two Tony’s in a six-decade career, has starred in films including “9 to 5” and TV shows like “Grace and Frankie.”

Previous recipients of the award include Michael Douglas, Shirley MacLaine, Morgan Freeman, George Clooney, Annette Benning, Helen Mirren and Susan Sarandon.
