and Diane Ladd (who is Dern's real life mother). She is also excited that Molly Shannon was nominated for being a guest actress on the show.
"This show is recently being found more than ever before because so many people don watch live television," Dern said. "And I hope this compliment gets the word out for people to share 'Enlightened.' I want to share Amy with everybody we can find she an important character. She's determined to use her voice in the world at all costs; she completely unafraid. It important to remember when people are so afraid to speak out about injustice."
"I was very surprised in that I wasn aware of it at all," said Dern of the nomination announcements that happened early Thursday morning. "It was a nice way to be surprised. And I totally thrilled it a lovely compliment, or gift, or however an actor wants to take something like this."
"I been watching 'I Love Lucy,' 'I Dream of Jeannie' and 'Gilligan Island,' to introduce my daughter to them," Dern said. "That my next wish: to really have fun on comedy my comedy is so tragic, the harder I Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low Women's Shoe

cry, the funnier it will be but I like, my god, they doing a pratfall! I want to do a pratfall! Of course, all the emotion and angst of Amy is deliciously fun for me but it is fun watching people enjoy themselves.".
Dern sees her nomination as a coup for the entire "Enlightened" team, including her co creator Mike White and co stars Luke Wilson White Nike Air Force 1 High Tops
Laura Dern can't believe 'Enlightened' is over
Laura Dern was in Chicago with her kids when she received word that she was nominated for lead actress in her recently canceled HBO comedy "Enlightened."
But she can't quite wrap her mind around the fact that it's over.
"There is something amazing about spending a couple of years developing a character, Nike Air Force 1 High White Tumblr and I had never done it," Dern said. "I was a guest on Ellen coming out episode, and that was incredible, but that was my only experience with TV. But I would love to do again it like a great love, once you found it you think, could never do it again it gotta feel like this. It would take time and patience, and HBO has been generous with their open door to find something together in the future."
In "Enlightened," Dern plays Amy Jellicoe, a woman who has a mental breakdown in the series premiere and strikes out on a path to enlightenment. This ultimately leads her to want to act as "an agent of change."
The nomination was also welcome in that it was further proof to Dern of what she already Nike Air Force 1 Women Fashion
strongly believes: That "Enlightened" is an important and respected show, worthy of gaining a wider audience than it initially did.
