When you’re a teenager, the idea of accompanying your dad to a formal event is the most embarrassing thing in the world.

When you’re an adult, on Oscar night, and both of you are movie stars, that calculation changes entirely.

Nebraska star Bruce Dern, nominated in the Best Actor category, walked the red carpet Sunday night alongside wife Andrea Beckett and a special guest: his daughter Laura Dern, who has been one of his fiercest champions in the 2014 Oscar season.

Even if Dern doesn’t win, he’s already received one of the best Father’s Day gifts of the year – just a little bit early.
