Laura Dern Is Honored by Friends Naomi Watts & Gwendoline Christie at MoMA Event

Laura Dern is joined on the red carpet by friends Naomi Watts and Gwendoline Christie at MoMA’s 2019 Film Benefit presented by Chanel on Tuesday night (November 12) in New York City.

The Oscar-nominated actress, who is a frontrunner to win an Academy Award next year for Marriage Story, was honored for her career.

“Courageous is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Laura Dern. Not in the somewhat clichéd way it is often used to describe actors’ role-choices, but in the fact that she has made me a more courageous viewer,” MoMA’s film curator Rajendra Roy said in a statement.

He added, “Her disarming ability to shake us loose from false conventional moorings and thrust us into moments of profound truth has made her an essential artist in cinema for the past thirty-five years (she started young!). She is the ideal honoree as we inaugurate a new, more open chapter in MoMA’s history.”

Other celebs who attended the event included Adam Driver, Brooke Shields, directors Noah Baumbach and Alexander Payne, and singer Maggie Rogers, who performed.

FYI: Laura is wearing Chanel. Naomi is wearing Chanel. Gwendoline is wearing Gucci. Brooke is wearing Ralph Lauren.
