Interview: Zhao Shuzhen on Her Performance in 'The Farewell'

Tzi Ma, Zhao Shuzhen, and director Lulu Wang of The Farewell
Great Performances: Movies for Grownups Awards recognizing the 50-plus audience, fighting industry ageism, and encouraging films that resonate with older viewers, was held over the weekend.

The star-studded awards ceremony had a tribute to Career Achievement Award honoree Annette Bening, who spoke of shared purpose, vulnerability, and camaraderie in filmmaking after the award was presented to her by “20th Century Women” co-star Billy Crudup.

Other highlights of the evening included Diane Ladd presenting the Best Supporting Actress award to daughter Laura Dern for her performance in “Marriage Story,” returning a gesture Dern gave to Ladd at the Movies for Grownups Awards four years ago; Conan O’Brien teasing Adam Sandler as the “desperate” Best Actor awardee descended on the stage before O’Brien could finish talking up Sandler’s performance in “Uncut Gems;” and Finn Wittrock presenting the Best Actress award to Renée Zellweger for “Judy,” 80 years after Judy Garland starred in “The Wizard of Oz.” The broadcast also features the awards for Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Ensemble, Best Documentary, and more.

TVMusic Network was on hand for the event and talked to many of the stars, including Zhao Shuzhen of "The Farewell."
