The Oscars Plus One; our favourite red carpet dates from the 2015 Academy Awards

Who was chosen as a plus one for the hottest ticket in town?

From mums and sons to loved-up duos, last night's Oscars ceremony was brimming with the familial affection of lovers, children, husbands and siblings. 

These people have made the sacrifices - the late nights, the childcare cover, the fielding of panicked on-set phone calls - in order for their loved ones to nurture blossoming movie careers. They've been there every step of the way and last night was the stars' turn to say thank you, in the form of a coveted spot on the Oscars red carpet. 

Sienna chose her father, Edwin, to accompany her past the aisle of photographers, while Patricia Arquette celebrated her best supporting actress win for Boyhood with her sister Rosanna in tow. Adorably, Idris Elba brought his teenage daughter along to hob nob with the great and good of Hollywood. 

Some of our favourite couples also hit the ceremony, with body language that offered up a tantalizing glimpse into their relationships. Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston are clearly still in the throes of romance, as they exchanged a series of beaming smiles, while David Burtka touchingly helped his new husband (and Oscars host) Neil Patrick Harris with his bow tie. 

Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac shook off new-parent exhaustion remarkably well to put in a striking appearance, while Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher - expecting their third child - looked sweet together at the Vanity Fair after-party:
