Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

The duo brought their mothers to the 1998 Oscars where they won Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting. Affleck thanked both of them in his victory speech, calling them ”the most beautiful women here.” Awww.

Johnny Depp

In 2004, Depp, looking very different from the Captain Jack Sparrow role that got him the Best Actor nomination, hit the carpet with his then-girlfriend Vanessa Paradis and his mother, Betty Sue Palmer.

Charlize Theron

Theron, who performed a dance number with Channing Tatum at last year’s Oscars, brought her stunning mom Gerda Maritz. Her mom was also her date to the 2010 Oscars.

Justin Timberlake

Showing up in support of his fellow The Social Network actors, he shared a special moment with his mom, Lynn, on the 2011 red carpet. “It was unanimous is my mind… You gotta bring your mom,” Timberlake said when asked about his date.

Chris Evans

Last year, the Avengers star was asked to present at the ceremony and brought his mom, Lisa, as a date. “She’s so excited,” he said of his mom attending the event with him. “It’s nice to remember how exciting and fun this stuff can be. Being with her brings all that back.”

Quvenzhané Wallis

The 9-year-old actress brought her mother Qulyndreia to last year’s Oscars, which nominated her for Best Actress for her work in Beasts of the Southern Wild. But even though she played an intense role in the movie, on the red carpet, she was all smiles, even toting around a fluffy dog purse.

Bradley Cooper

Cooper, nominated for Best Actor for Silver Linings Playbook, hit the carpet last year with his mom Gloria and introduced her to his girlfriend, Jennifer Lawrence. Okay, not really, but this photo does look like a couple meeting the parents for the first time, doesn’t it? Of course, I’m sure J-Law was a smash hit with Mama Cooper.

Jennifer Lawrence

J-Law brought her whole family to last year’s Academy Awards, allowing them to see her victorious moment. After she won the award for Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook, her family gave her a huge group hug while shouting “Oscar!”

Jamie Foxx

In 2005, Jamie Foxx brought his daughter Corinne along for the occasion. She’d been attending after-parties with her dad since she was seven, but the Academy Awards were a big step up for the 11-year-old. Seeing him win Best Performance for an Actor in a Leading Role for his work on Ray was the cherry on top of her Oscar sundae.

Jamie Foxx... Again

All grown up, Foxx brought Corinne to the event again last year where he presented the award for Best Live Action Short. The father-daughter date was just as adorable eight years later.

Sean Penn

Proud mama Eileen Ryan gave Penn a good luck hug at the 2004 Oscars. It seemed the hug did the trick because Penn walked home with the Best Actor award for Mystic River.

Ryan Gosling

Gosling pulled double family duty in 2007, bringing both his mom and sister to the Oscars to cheer him on in his nomination for Best Actor in Half Nelson. Lucky ladies.

A long-haired Farrell brought his mom Rita to the 2008 Academy Awards, where he was introduced the Once performance. Here, she shows how shocked she is that his hair is longer than hers!

Hailee Steinfeld

In 2011, the 14-year-old was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in True Grit and brought not only her parents, but also her brother. Dressed in a flowing pink dress, she couldn’t have looked more different than her tough on-screen cowgirl self.

Jeremy Renner

Renner brought his mom, Valerie Clearley, to the Oscars in both 2010 and 2011 to watch him contend for back-to-back Best Actor nominations for The Hurt Locker and The Town. Speaking about her first red carpet in 2010, Clearley said, “I’m the nervous one. He’s been to [award ceremonies] before. I haven’t. It’s crazy!” We wonder if he’ll bring her back this year, with his movie American Hustle up for several awards.

Philip Seymour Hoffman

Just last year, the late legendary actor took his 9-year-old son, Cooper, to the event that nominated him for his work in The Master. He didn’t take home the win, but he got to spend the night with his son, and judging by the smiles on both their faces that night, it was more than enough of a prize.
