Age is just a number, folks. When it comes to the film industry, especially this year, we’ve seen terrific work from actors, actresses and filmmakers, both young and old. Of course, seniority does bring respect, and there are a number of awards contenders who are on the older side. The business favors the young, though, but the good ones don’t vanish when they’re on the wrong side of 30 or 40.
There are a number of strong Oscar hopefuls this year who are over the age of 55, so the purpose of this week’s list is to highlight and honor them a bit. Not all of them will wind up with nominations, but at least some of them will hear their names called. Regardless, all have added at least one more terrific bit of work to their already stellar resumes.
