Jim Carrey Takes A Crack At Bruce Dern While Presenting At The Oscars
Jim Carrey presented the award for Best Animated Feature at the 86th Annual Academy Awards, giving a good ribbing to legendary actor Bruce Dern in the process.
Jim Carrey Imitates Bruce Dern
Though Dern – who was nominated in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category – wasn’t exactly relevant to the category in which Carrey was presenting, the comedic actor couldn’t help but get a joke in at his idol’s expense.
“You can’t keep a good man down can ya — Bruce?” Jim asked, imitating the character of Woody Grant Dern plays in Nebraska. “It doesn’t feel good to be on the other end of that does it Bruce?”
Carrey’s lines were complemented by his theatrical facial expressions, an exaggeration of those employed by Dern in the Oscar-nominated feature. Dern, who sat in the audience with his daughter, actress Laura Dern, laughed good-humoredly at Carrey’s bit.
Nebraska was nominated for a total of six Oscars – Best Motion Picture, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role (Dern), Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role (June Squibb), Best Achievement in Cinematography, Best Achievement in Direction, and Best Original Screenplay.
The Best Animated Feature award that Carrey presented went to Frozen.
