Usually award ceremonies provide a prime opportunity to show off your super hot significant other on the red carpet. However, another trend is on the rise, as proven by the Academy Awards over the last couple of decades!
Nowadays, it seems that many of Hollywood's finest actors are opting to share their successes with the lucky ladies who had the pleasure of bringing them into this wonderful world – their moms!
Here's a selection of A-list studs who put their proud mamas first – adorable doesn't even cut it!
1. Justin Timberlake
In 2011, trouser-snake himself opted to bring his other number one woman to the Oscars. Here he is with gorgeous mama Lynn Harless.
2. Jared Leto
Jared Leto and his mom were inseparable at the ceremony last year – will he bring her along this year too?
3. Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio proved once again that he is the best human ever when he brought his mom Irmelin to the 86th Academy Awards last year. Sadly, he didn't grab the prized gong for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street:
4. Colin Farrell
Colin was the perfect gentleman when he invited his momma Rita to accompany him to the 2008 Academy Awards, also admitting to a magazine:
"My mother taught me amazing manners. I consider myself polite – and I know I am considered by some people – to be polite."
5. Javier Bardem
Javier brought this dame of a woman, his mother, when he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for No Country For Old Men back in 2008. When he won, he affectionately addressed his mother, saying:
"Mom, this is for you! This if for your grandparents, for your parents, this is for the actors of Spain, who have brought, like you, the dignity and the pride to our job. This is for Spain, and this is for all of you."
6. Jonah Hill
In true copy-cat fashion, Jonah Hill also dragged along mom Sharon as his date the same year as Leo.

11. Ben Affleck & Matt Damon
And here's a final blast from the past for you guys! Back in 1998, these two brought their lovely moms instead of hot dates and went on to collect the Best Original Screenplay award for Good Will Hunting.
