Sixth’s time’s the charm for Laura Dern: The actress took home her first Primetime Emmy Award for her supporting role in the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies at the 69th annual ceremony Sunday night in Los Angeles.
“I share this with my tribe of four ladies,” said Dern, referring to costars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, and Zoe Kravitz. “I feel very proud to be reflecting fierce women and mothers finding their voice.
“I’m just incredibly blessed and I feel so stoked to be here with you.”
Dern won for her portrayal of Renata Klein, a bigwig working mother who finds herself locked in battle with the other mom of Monterey when her daughter is the victim of bullying. Dern costarred with Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspooon, and Shailene Woodley in the adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel.
Dern’s previous Emmy nominations have spanned the gamut, from her nod for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama series in 1994’s Fallen Angels to her 2013 nomination for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Enlightened.
Dern beat out Woodley as well as fellow nominees Regina King (American Crime), Michelle Pfeiffer (The Wizard of Lies), and Judy Davis and Jackie Hoffman (Feud: Bette and Joan).
