Finally nabbing that Oscar nod after decades in the biz, Bruce Dern was in great spirits as he arrived at the 86th Academy Awards in Hollywood tonight (March 2).

Posing with his wife Andrea Beckett and daughter Laura, the “Nebraska” star greeted his fellow celebrities outside Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre ahead of the entertainment industry’s biggest event.

However, the 77-year-old actor faces some tough competition in the Leading Actor category from Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Matthew McConaughey.

The hopefuls for Best Picture include “American Hustle,” “Nebraska,” “Captain Phillips,” “Philomena,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Gravity,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and “Her.”
