Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern has been turning heads for his performance in Alexander Payne’s Nebraska, and his path to Oscar seems more and more clear as the awards season process unfolds. Today it was announced that Dern would receive the Career Achievement Award at the 25th annual Palm Springs Film Festival. The festival runs Jan. 3-13, and Dern is set to receive his honor on January 4.

Dern’s single Oscar nomination came for Best Supporting Actor in 1979’s Coming Home. Nebraska opened in limited release on November 15.

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
