We’ve already given them some sound fashion advice , but now we want to know who the Oscar attendees will be bringing with them to the show on Sunday. With a number of the presenters and nominees opting to bring mom to the Academy Awards, it could be quite the family affair.
While “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe really wanted to get Justin Timberlake and “The Hurt Locker” actor Anthony Mackie “fight it out for the honor” of being her date, the actress confirmed to People that she will be accompanied by her mom.
In fact, it seems a number of the ladies will have mom by their side on the red carpet. “Up in the Air” star Anna Kendrick will arrive at the show with her mom and brother in tow. “I’m flying them out. I’m so excited,” Kendrick revealed to E! News. “My mom wants to meet George Clooney.”
Miley Cyrus, who is presenting at the show, tends to bring her mom to big events with her, so it’s no surprise she’s leaving beau and “The Last Song” co-star Liam Hemsworth at home. “Liam’s a pretty low-key guy anyway,” a source close to the couple told E!. “He doesn’t mind not going.”
Maggie Gyllenhaal, up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Crazy Heart,” will also be with mom. The actress told Showbiz411, “I’m looking forward to doing the whole thing, all the parties. I know it’s crazy, but why not? I’m hoping I can bring my mom, too, to the Governors Ball.”
With both Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner presenting at the show, it seems like the “Twilight” stars would make perfect built-in dates for each other. “Yeah, I’m going,” Stewart said. “Me and Taylor are going to present.”
“The Bounty Hunter” star Gerard Butler, who will also be presenting, isn’t bringing a date — on purpose. “I’m not taking a date unless I have a serious girlfriend, which probably a lot of people know is very rare,” Butler told “Extra.” “There are enough rumors about what’s going on in my life without sparking another one.”
