There were plenty of swoon-worthy moments on the red carpet tonight — but one particularly sweet one came to us courtesy of Keanu Reeves, who brought his mother as his date to the Oscars. While we’re huge fans of Reeves’ longtime girlfriend Alexandra Grant, there’s something so special about seeing stars share these moments with their family. Reeves has had mom Patricia Taylor by his side since Day One; shouldn’t she get to enjoy the biggest night in Hollywood right along with him?
It looks like Reeves and Taylor are super close, and we’re not just saying that because he invited her to join him on the red carpet. When you watch them pose for photos together, you can see him take her arm; it’s clear they’re both so proud to have made it here as a family.

Twitter approves of this red carpet duo too, with one tweet reading: “Keanu Reeves came to the #Oscars with his mum. We have no choice but to stan.” Another tweet agreed: “Keanu Reeves bringing his mom to the #Oscars is the best thing you’ll see today.”

It’s unclear why girlfriend Grant isn’t in attendance tonight — but if recent reports that she and Reeves have been dating for years are correct, it’s clear that the artist prefers to keep a low profile, which is a tough ask on the most-publicized and photographed night of the year. With all the recent scrutiny into their relationship, it seems that both Reeves and Grant preferred to keep this night a family affair, and we’re here for this sweet mother-son duo making their way down the carpet together.
The show may be only just beginning — but Keanu Reeves already won the night in our hearts.
