Stars test jokes (and high heels) at rehearsals


Laura Dern is one proud daughter. 

The actress, 53, brought her mother Diane Ladd to tears after winning the Oscar for best supporting actress at the 92nd annual Academy Awards Sunday for Netflix’s “Marriage Story.”

“Some say never meet your heroes,” Dern said during her emotional acceptance speech. “I say if you’re really blessed, you get them as your parents. I share this with my acting hero my legends, Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern. You got game. I love you.”

Dern – who beat out the likes of Kathy Bates (“Richard Jewell”), Scarlett Johansson (“Jojo Rabbit”), Florence Pugh (“Little Women”) and Margot Robbie (“Bombshell”) – embraced her mother immediately after she was announced the winner.

“I went backstage, and people were telling me my mother was very moved, and that just makes me so happy to stand up and sing their praises,” Dern said in the press room following her speech. “(My parents) literally got me here and artistically got me here as well. So it means the world. Thank you.”
