Dev Patel was nominated for Actor in a Supporting Role for his film ‘Lion’. ‘Lion’ is based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, who was just five years old when he fell asleep on a train, and later found himself hundreds of miles away from his home in rural India.
Surprisingly, Dev brought his Mum Anita as his date to the Oscars and left the internet swooning.
It was a pure joy to see them together on the red carpet.
That divine gaze:
Twitterati just cannot handle their cuteness:
YESSSS to Dev Patel’s mum wearing a Saari! 💃🏾 pic.twitter.com/KwlrZ5Od2H

Regardless, Dev Patel still wins the Oscar for “killing all of us with how adoringly he looks at his mom.” Give him ALL THE AWARDS #Oscars
