The 2019 Oscars Served Up One Big Mom Appreciation Night

We’ve got to love it when moms take center stage. Last night’s 2019 Academy Awards ceremony was a veritable momfest, with numerous celebs bringing their mothers as their dates — and others giving beautiful shoutouts to the women who raised them.

Regina King won best supporting actress for If Beale Street Could Talk. Guess who was foremost on her mind? Her mama. Awwww.

Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan made us all melt with his Instagram post: “My mama about to make me have to fight somebody she looking so pretty.” Jordan added, “#PopsIGotYou.”

Amy Adams brought her lookalike sisters and her mom.

Rami Malek, star of Bohemian Rhapsody, won for best actor — and he made sure to adorably thank his mama.

We think she appreciated the kudos, judging from these photos afterward.

Charlize Theron brought her mom (and co-parent!) as her Oscars date:

As did Bradley Cooper. His mom, Gloria, joined his partner Irina Shayk, the mother of his child (who is also a badass for sitting through Cooper and Lady Gaga delivering that electric seriously-are-they-more-than-friends performance of “Shallow,” the song that won an Oscar for Gaga).

Yalitza Aparicio was nominated for best actress for Roma and brought her mother to the Oscars too. As Los Angeles Times writer Esmeralda Bermudez reported on Twitter, “An indigenous preK teacher from a far-flung Mexican town, up 4 Best Actress, w/her mother, a domestic worker, walking hand in hand on one of the world’s most powerful and impenetrable stages: the Oscars red carpet.” Boom! That says it all.

BlackKklansman producer Jason Blum also included his mom (well, half of her, at least) in a cute tweet on the way to the Oscars.

And hey, even those of us with normal lives found ourselves with serious Mom feels too.

Well, we were there for it… even if Randy Rainbow wasn’t feeling the love.

But to be honest? This mom-related Oscar tweet is the one that we relate to the very most (especially this here author, who went to bed at 8:15 p.m.).

Truth.
