Laurie Metcalf wins Best Supporting Actress for Lady Bird at AARP’s 17th Annual Movies For Grownups Awards. Available to viewers for the first time ever, Great Performances presents the broadcast premiere of the Movies for Grownups® Awards with AARP The Magazine on Friday, February 23 at 9 p.m. on PBS, pbs.org/gperf and PBS apps.
”Lady Bird to me is a beautiful reminder that we can’t let what we want for one another get in the way of our love for one another,” Metcalf said. “And it’s hard to let lady birds go. I’ve had to do it myself a number of times. We cross our fingers and hope that the world will be as gentle with them as it possibly can be. And that’s all any mother has wished for her daughter – a better life and a better world to live it in.”
