Top Gun: Maverick crowned Best Picture at the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards, held Saturday at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Saturday.

The Tom Cruise starring-sequel to the 1986 Top Gun has continued its winning streak after earning five major Oscar nominations for this year.

Top Gun: Maverick beat out competition for the major award that included Elvis, Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, Tár and Women Talking as well as The Woman King.

Jerry Bruckheimer, who also produced the 1986 original, accepted the award from the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons).

“I’ve produced over 50 movies and more than 2,000 hours of television but there was one question that everybody kept asking, ‘Will there ever be another ‘Top Gun?'” Bruckheimer said in his speech, as reported by Variety.

“After almost four decades, all the pieces fell into place and we finally released the much-anticipated sequel just when everybody seemed to need it the most.”
