Fresh off her powerful acceptance speech at the Golden Globes for her role as Renata Klein in HBO’s hit Big Little Lies and her part as a leading character in the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Laura Dern wants to play more complex and culturally relevant characters, which is something she says audiences desire.

During a panel hosted by Omnicom Media Group at the Consumer Electronics Show last week, Dern and Beth Altringer, Ph.D, founder and director of Harvard’s Desirability Lab, talked about the role that technology and innovation plays in Hollywood and filmmaking.

Claudia Cahill, Omnicom Media Group’s chief content officer, moderated the 45-minute talk and asked Dern what she looks for in picking projects to work on. According to Dern, her upbringing by two actor parents—Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern—encouraged her to go after diverse roles.

“They taught me early on to pursue what would be reflective of not only the human condition but what our culture looks like,” she said. “I think that’s why audiences are craving storytelling to look like the world we live in and that includes diversity on a far deeper level than we’ve ever seen. Everyone, meaning the people who are creating content and storytellers, have to catch up with what the audience is longing for, which is the truth. The truth is messy and lives in the grey. We’re not black and white.”

Take her latest Star Wars role, for example. Dern plays Vice Admiral Holdo, one of a handful of women characters that fans of the iconic franchise have praised as strong leaders in the film.

The Laura Dern year continues from 2017 and it’s not like I’m complaining at all. Recognizing her talent and incredible performance is something I have been waiting for a while.
Critics’ Choice Awards saw this all in her, and in the series and in her co-stars rightfully. Congratulations to them all!
On my part, I can contribute with more than 100 HQ photos of Laura, also thanks to my good friend Luciana for donating some of these.

Here is the full speech of Laura, video and partial transcription from The New York Times.

Laura Dern accepted the award for best supporting actress in a TV series, for her role in “Big Little Lies.” In that show she plays Renata Klein, the mother of a girl who is being harassed at school. She used part of her acceptance speech to express support for those who speak out against abuse and spoke about playing an “outrageous, complicated woman — a 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 silencing 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 of retribution is our culture’s new North Star. Bless you, bless everyone who worked on this. All the people who support me and my beautiful children, thank you for all of your work and love.

Post-Golden Globe everyone will be talking about #WhyWeWearBlack and extraordinary movement with #TimesUp started and brought to the awards in support of all those who have a told or untold #MeToo story. Laura was no exception. Winner for the Golden Globe as Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Big Little Lies, Laura showed up in an Armani Privé with an important guest Mónica Ramírez, the co-founder of Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, who has served farmworker, Latina and immigrant women as an attorney, organizer and advocate and is dedicated to ending violence against women, particularly farmworkers.
