List Rules Vote up the sweetest family award show date nights!

Stars: They're just like us. They might be talented and famous and uber-attractive, but they still bring their moms as dates to award shows like the Oscars and Golden Globes. We promise you'll find your heart melted by familial support when you check out this list of actors and stars who have asked family members to join them on the red carpet. There's everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio and Jared Leto, who adorably brought their moms with them on their big night, to Angelina Jolie, who grossed out the world when she made out with her brother on the red carpet at the Academy Awards in 2000.

Famous people who take family members to award shows run the gamut from verified mama's boys (like Jeremy Renner) to megastars with relationship troubles (like Russell Brand and Tom Cruise.) They come in all shapes and sizes and thought they aren't always likable, their family members are always adorable (except for, again, Angelina Jolie's brother). We'll leave it up to you to decide whose moms are most adorable, but you can't deny the "aww" factor when professional ladykillers like Leonardo bring their mommies as their #1 girls to black tie affairs like the Oscars.

Sometimes, all a celebrity has to do to win you over is bring his or her parents to a major awards show. Remember how much you hate Lena Dunham? Well, just check out a picture of her and her mom all dolled up and you might think differently. It's also hard to hate on Will Smith when he shows up at places like the VMAs with the entirety of his family in tow (just stay away from Twitter, Jaden).

Leo has had a lot of special ladies in his life over the years, but his #1 gal will always be his mother, Irmelin. DiCaprio, famous for his rotation of supermodel girlfriends, took his mom as his date to the 2014 Oscars, where he was nominated for his work in The Wolf of Wall Street. He was dating a 21-year-old Victoria's Secret model at the time.
