Laura Dern ‑ “Big Little Lies”
LAURA DERN: God. Thank you, HFPA, for the honor of joining in the company of these extraordinary fellow nominees who inspire me so deeply. And namely, to the brilliant Shailene, Zoe, Reese, and Nicole, my new family. To our fearless leader Jean‑Marc, to HBO, and to our magical producers and especially for caring so much to make things work so that I could be part of this. I’m so forever grateful. To David E. Kelley, our superhero, who took Liane’s words and gave me, particularly, the most outrageous, complicated woman and terrified mother, terrified because her little girl was being abused and bullied and she was too afraid to speak up.
Many of us were taught not to tattle. It was a culture of silence and that was normalized. I urge all of us to not only support survivors and bystanders who are brave enough to tell their truth but to promote restorative justice. May we also please protect and employ them. May we teach our children that speaking out without the fear retribution is our culture’s new north star.
Bless you, bless everyone who worked on this, Alden Bruce, Courtney, and my beautiful children. Thank you for all of your work and love. Good night.
