Payne is best known for his screenwriting and directing work on The Descendants, Sideways, and Election. In Nebraska, an aging, booze-addled father (2013 Cannes Film Festival Best Actor-winner Bruce Dern) makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son (Will Forte) in order to claim a million dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize.
