Countdown to the Oscars: Couples Confidential

The highly anticipated Academy Awards are finally here, and the famous faces are hitting the pre-Oscar VIP scene.

"Extra" caught up with Best Actress nominee Charlize Theron at the Vanity Fair Amped for Africa pre-Oscar benefit, and Charlize broke news about her Oscar date: "I'm taking my mom."

So where is Theron's sexy boyfriend Stuart Townsend? Charlize told us he's filming this weekend in Canada.

The red carpet showstopper also had another confession: she has yet to decide on her Oscar dress. "It's always nerve wracking," Charlize said. "Any red carpet is always nerve wracking."

Meanwhile, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Matt Dillon were party hopping Thursday night at the hip Sky Bar for Jason Binn's Los Angeles Confidential magazine bash. Best Actor nominee Phillip Seymour Hoffman was the star attraction, gracing the magazine's cover.

Matt Dillon also broke couples news, admitting he'll be dateless for the big night. "There isn't a lady right now," the Best Supporting Actor nominee told us. "And I don't want to bring a date, just to bring a date."
