'It's the only night he stays up late': Michael takes dad KirkIt was his dad's one big night out of the year. Michael Douglas accompanied his 95-year-old dad Kirk to the Oscars, telling reporters: "This is the latest night my father will stay up."
The Wall Street actor added: "He's here every year… he's got dear friends here, he remembers them, they remember him.
And in a testament to Kirk's staying power, he looked bright eyed and bushy tailed as he joined his son at the Vanity Fair party.
Michael also presented a trophy at the ceremony – handing the Best Director award to The Artist's Michel Hazanavicius.
The Hollywood stalwart's wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, was expected to join him on the red carpet, but there was no sign of the glam actress this year.
She was probably busy filming Rock of Ages – the musical, which also stars Tom Cruise, is currently wrapping up.
