This might be the ultimate way to thank your mother on awards night.
Pictures from the Oscars red carpet are just as likely to end up in a family photo album as on a glossy front page.
This year, multiple stars like Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron made waves by bringing their moms as dates to the Academy Awards. And winners or not, the love was real.
Below are the Oscars, from 2020 and past award shows as well.
The "John Wick" star's date to this year's Academy Awards was his mom, Hollywood costume and production designer Patricia Taylor.
Before opening Sunday's show with her performance, Janelle Monae turned heads in this glamorous cloaked look. Monae proved the apple doesn't fall far from the tree when she posed for photos with her mom Janet, who was rocking a glitzy gold gown.
Laura Dern thanked her mom every way she could on Sunday, not only bringing her on the red carpet, but also expressing her gratitude for both her parents, veteran actors Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd, in a moving acceptance speech for her "Marriage Story" supporting actress win.
The "Joker" star wore his same Stella McCartney suit to every award show this season but mom Arlyn was still thrilled about his Lead Actor win. Here's a photo of Baby and Mama Phoenix celebrating at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
While the "Bombshell" actress didn't win her Lead Actress nomination for her portrayal of Megyn Kelly, both she and her mom Gerda Jacoba Aletta Maritz were total bombshells on the red carpet before the show.
The "Little Women" star brought her mother on what was a big night, when Pugh was nominated for the Greta Gerwig-directed adaption of the Louisa May Alcott novel.
