This year’s BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL has just concluded. Here is one of the guests whom I met at the event:
Double Oscar nominee, Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy winner Laura Dern plays divorce lawyer Nora Fanshaw in Noah Baumbach’s comedy-drama MARRIAGE STORY, which had its Gala Screening at this years festival on Sunday 6 October at both the Odeon Luxe in Leicester Square and the Embankment Garden cinema.
Her two Oscar nominations were for her roles as orphan Rose in 1992’s RAMBLING ROSE (Best Actress) and as Bobbi Grey in the 2015 biographical drama WILD (Best Supporting Actress). She has won four Golden Globe Awards including one for her portrayal as Renata Klein in the HBO series BIG LITTLE LIES (2017-19) for which she also received a Primetime Emmy. She has already won the Best Supporting Actress award at this years Hollywood Film Awards for her performance in MARRIAGE STORY, which could be the first of many accolades.
Laura signed my sketch at the Ham Yard Hotel on Saturday 5 October, before she attended the MARRIAGE STORY Gala screenings the following day.
