Actress Melissa McCarthy fought back tears on the Oscars red carpet after watching a pre-taped TV tribute from her mum Sandy.
Mother and daughter walked the red carpet together with other members of the family and the Bridesmaids star was overcome with emotion when she watched a montage of the proud mothers of the nominees.
Choking up before her interview with ABC red carpet host Robin Roberts, she said, "They (parents) supported me for all the right reasons... It means a lot."
