The King’s Speech won the night and it’s Academy Award Winning director, Tom Hooper, gave all the credit to his MAMA who found the movie for him. “The moral of the story,” he said, is “listen to your mother.” Hooper wasn’t the only one who gave props to mom. Best Supporting Actress for her role in Black Swan and mother-to-be, Natalie Portman, thanked her “lover” for giving her the “role of a lifetime” as she anticipates motherhood. There were MAMAs celebrated on the big screen in The Kids Are Alright and The Fighter and MAMAs who walked the red carpet with their famous kids, like Justin Timberlake who took his mom as his date to the big show!
The pre-show also had nominees’ mothers, called “mominees” (cute!), tweeting about their celebrity KID-Os. They gave some “motherly insight into what their child was like growing up,” according to the show’s producer Charlie Haykel. And, both of the show’s hosts, James Franco and Anne Hathaway, thanked their mommies. So, listen to your MAMAs kids, and you will go places…you might end up in Hollywood with a little gold statue, but at the very least, you’ll be a shining star in the eyes of your MAMA!
