Two-time Academy Award nominee Laura Dern has touched many audiences and critics alike with her moving and heartfelt performances. For her Oscar-nominated performance in “Rambling Rose,” Critic Peter Travers explained that Dern “ranks among the best actresses of her generation.” In 2010, in celebration of their family legacy in film and television, Dern, her mother Diane Ladd, and father Bruce Dern were awarded the first ever “Family Star Ceremony” on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition to her two Oscar nominations, Dern has received four Golden Globe Awards and has been nominated for five Primetime Emmy Awards.

In addition to her extensive film and television credits, Dern has been prolific in her producing career with three upcoming projects for HBO including “Tiny Beautiful Things,” “Untitled Alex Gibney Project” and “Untitled Brownie Wise Project.” In 2016, she was also selected to serve on The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors. Dern resides in Los Angeles with her two children.
