Cute couples on the Oscars red carpet

There's more to the stars' big red-carpet arrival at the Oscars than just looking absolutely fabulous. For a number of the nominees at Sunday's 84th annual ceremony, it also meant showing off their significant others and being half of some of the cutest couples at the event.

For example? Best actress contender Viola Davis of "The Help" was gorgeous in an emerald green grown and husband Julius Tennon on her arm, while best actor nominee Brad Pitt ("Moneyball") and longtime love Angelina Jolie (in Atelier Versace) made for a gorgeous pair. And of course, best actor hopeful George Clooney ("The Descendents") wowed in his Giorgio Armani tux and golden statuette ... err, we mean, girlfriend Stacy Keibler in a gold Marchesa gown.

Other adorable pairs we spotted? "Bridesmaids" actress Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, and Gary Oldman and wife Alexandra Edenborough.
