Angela Bassett, Brendan Fraser, Andie MacDowell, decided to turn the 2023 Oscars into a family affair.
A few of the 95th Academy Awards nominees and guests arrived at the star-studded ceremony on Sunday, March 12, with their families in tow.
Bassett, who is nominated for best supporting actor for her portrayal of Queen Ramonda in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” walked the red carpet with her husband and fellow actor Courtney B. Vance. The actors, who have been married since 1997, were also joined by their 17-year-old twins, Bronwyn and Slater.
Fraser had two of his two sons, Holden and Leland, by his side. Holden praised his dad while being interviewed by E!. He said he and his brother were “over the moon” about their father being nominated for best actor for “The Whale.”
“We are unbelievably proud,” Holden added.
More close-knit families posed for photos together before heading inside Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to see who would win some of the night’s biggest awards, like best actor, best actress and best picture.
