Bruce Dern has been walking a handful of red carpets this season with his daughter, Laura, and the pair showed up together again at the SAG Awards clutching one another's hands.

"Has this all made us closer?" Laura yelled into the ear of her hearing-impaired dad, repeating a reporter's question.

"It's wonderful to have an excuse to be together," he said.

The 77-year-old said he was looking forward to celebrating among his peers on Saturday but was truly the most excited for the Oscars, where he's up for best actor.

"That's truly the granddaddy," he said. "That and the Rose Bowl. I just hope people aren't Dern-ed out by then."
