Matt Damon and Ben Affleck made it cool to take your mom to the Oscars during the 1990's and now Jared Leto is following in their footsteps this year.

The actor, nominated for Best Supporting Actor in "Dallas Buyers Club," recently told his mom via Facetime and her reaction to the news she would be sharing in her son's big night was priceless.

"My mothers face when @shannonleto and I told her she was coming to the #Oscars with us! :)," Leto posted yesterday via Instagram.
