First Clip from Alexander Payne’s ‘Nebraska’ Hints at Bruce Dern’s Strong Performance


Our editor, Clayton Davis, has recently unveiled his most recent Oscar predictions. In his front-runner spot for Lead Actor is veteran actor Bruce Dern for his upcoming turn in Alexander Payne’s Nebraska. I currently have Dern in the number five slot, but after this interesting first look at the film, I’m thinking Mr. Davis might be on to something. It isn’t much, but Dern packs a whole lot into this two-minute scene. Nebraska will screen at Cannes, giving us a little more information on the film – and Dern’s performance – before it goes into limited release on November 22.
