Laura Dern Won Best Supporting Actress at the 2020 Oscars

Laura Dern has allegedly won best supporting actress at the 2020 Oscars on Sunday she got this award for her performance in Marriage Story. She thanked the Academy for “the best birthday present ever” and dedicated her award to her parents.

Dern beat out fellow nominated actresses Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit), Kathy Bates (Richard Jewell), Margot Robbie (Bombshell), and Florence Pugh (Little Women). This is the actress’ first Oscar win.

The category was reportedly presented by the last year’s best supporting actor winner for Green Book, Mahershala Ali.

While accepting the award, she expressed gratitude “just to be in this room with remarkable artists” including her fellow nominees, whom she called “sisters.”

The actress further thanked Netflix for its support, and writer-director Noah Baumbach for “his vision, his magic.”

She further added, “Thank you, Noah, for your words and for your friendship in art and life with Greta [Gerwig, who wrote and directed Little Women, in which Dern also starred]. Noah wrote a movie about love and about breaching divisions in the name and in the honor of family and home and, hopefully, for all of us, in the name of our planet.”

The actress also thanked her step children and her Oscar-nominated parents, Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern. “You got game, I love you!” she said.

While speaking to the reporters, Dern thanked her parents and said, “I went backstage and people were telling me my mother was very moved, and that just makes me so happy. They literally got me here, and artistically got me here as well, so it means the world.”

About the film’s plot, the actress said that she hopes the message can speak to a large issue the world faces — climate change. She added, “I think if a couple, through heartbreak and divisiveness, can come together to raise a child, then this country better get its act together. We have a planet to save. I pray we can all come together to focus on something that is not at all politics; it’s about our home.”
