The recent Oscars ceremony was not only a celebration of the best in the film industry but also a tribute to the support and encouragement received from families. Many of the winners highlighted the role their families, particularly their mothers, played in nurturing their talents.

Daniel Scheinert, who won an Oscar for his work on the film “Swiss Army Man,” mentioned that his family had always encouraged his creativity, even when he was working on disturbing horror films or dressing in drag, which is still controversial in some American states.

Ruth Carter, the first Black woman to win two Oscars for best costume design for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” paid tribute to her mother, Mabel, who had passed away the previous week. She mentioned that the film had prepared her for this moment, and invoked the late Chadwick Boseman’s name, asking him to take care of her mother.

Volker Bertelmann, who won an Oscar for best original score for “All Quiet on the Western Front,” also thanked his mother for her support.

Paul Mescal, nominated for best actor in “Aftersun,” brought his mother, Dearbhla, as his date for the Oscars. He mentioned that she had always believed in his abilities and had booked the date in her diary for years. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.

Actor Jonathan Majors, who arrived on the red carpet carrying a cup, explained that his mother, who is a pastor, always emphasized safety when he was growing up. She reminded him to watch his cup and to avoid drinking, drugs, and sex. This upbringing has stayed with him throughout his life, and he kept his mother’s advice in mind at the Oscars.

The emphasis on mothers was a recurring theme at the Oscars, where older women, such as Jamie Lee Curtis, who is 64, were some of the biggest winners. Several nominated films also dealt with complicated family relationships, such as “Aftersun,” which portrayed a single father and his daughter.

Fathers also had their moment at the Oscars, thanks to Colin Farrell, who brought his 13-year-old son Henry Tadeusz to the ceremony. Although Farrell did not win an award, his gesture showed the importance of family in the film industry and in life.
