YMMV / Laura Dern

  • Award Snub: Moviegoers are in near-unanimous agreement that she at least deserved an Academy Award nomination for her performance in Inland Empire.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Her mother Diane Ladd's starring role in Carnosaur right after her role in Jurassic Park.
    • As mentioned on the main page, with a humorous quip Martin Scorsese pretty much predicted her future acting career when she was just a small child.
  • Hollywood Homely: Apparently, someone thinks she looks like a banana.
  • Memetic Mutation: The funny face she makes when she cries had been immortalized on the internet.
  • Never Live It Down: Didn't receive work for more than a year after her appearance as Susan in the controversial "Puppy Episode" of Ellen.
