When you're a teenager, the idea of accompanying your dad to a formal event is the most embarrassing thing in the world.
When you're an adult, on Oscar night, and both of you are movie stars, that calculation changes entirely.
Nebraska star Bruce Dern, nominated in the Best Actor category, walked the red carpet Sunday night alongside wife Andrea Beckett and a special guest: his daughter Laura Dern, who has been one of his fiercest champions in the 2014 Oscar season.

HBO has canceled Enlightened after only two seasons – a rational decision, judging by the low ratings, but not necessarily an enlightened one.
The comedy, created and written by Mike White and starring Laura Dern, was the only TV comedy I can think of that you could call beautiful. It was also deadpan, disturbing, ironic, moving and – even rarer – full of a kind of zen stillness: Everyone always seemed paused in their places, as if sensing that their daily reality was only a blink removed from empty dreaming.
Given all that, I think "beautiful" is the right word. But as Mr. White and Ms. Dern have learned, that's not really what people are looking for in a comedy.
