What a weekend for Laura Dern. She’s spending her last day as a 52-year-old glowing from her first Academy Award win and recovering from an otherworldly tribute that took place yesterday at the Independent Spirit Awards.

First, let’s recap her monumental Oscars win: Dern took home the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Marriage Story. Dern has been nominated for two Oscars before today’s win, for performances in Rambling Rose (1992) and Wild (2015). She took home the Golden Globe last month for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture.

At the Independent Spirit Awards, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles performed an original comedic song about the gayest moments in films last year, with special mention of Laura Dern’s presence in cinema. Specifically, she was shouted out for moments in Marriage Story, such as when she ordered a kale salad, “dressed slutty in court” and then, “just all of Laura Dern.”


“I need a choir to go everywhere with me!” she tweeted. She is turning 53 tomorrow, in case anyone is looking to get her a gift. Watch the full performance from the Independent Spirit Awards below.
