Jared has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, in which he stars alongside Matthew McConaughey as AIDS-infected transgender drug addict Rayon.
This won't be the first time Jared's lucky mum gets to accompany her son to an awards ceremony.

The former Requiem For a Dream star invited his mum to the SAG Awards in January, where he received a SAG Award for his cutting role in Dallas Buyers Club. He has also been awarded a Golden Globe.
He shared a snap of the mother and son duo on Instagram at the weekend. "Me. My mom. :)" he wrote simply of the photo, which shows the dashing pair posing on the red carpet.
The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman isn't the only star to take his proud mum out during awards season. Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper both left their model girlfriends at home and escorted their mothers to the star-studded Golden Globes in January.
