Jeremy Piven famously did it, but it happens every award show. Amid the sea of beautiful people, a celeb strolls down the red carpet with—instead of some hot actress-model or most recent costar—the star's dear, sweet mom. Just look at Piven and his ma. Aww!
Seeing some big star share the award-show experience with his or her mommy is adorable, and occasionally even a little necessary (like, say, if the star is single or just recently broken up).
Like say, trophilial duty? Oof. We know you can do better than that! Get going, people.
