This Sunday's ceremony is rife with celebrity couple possibilities. In a perfect world, nominees Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield will reunite and hit the red carpet together. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes will get a babysitter. And, while we'd never want to deny Michelle Williams a hot man-date, we'll be a little bummed if Busy Philipps isn't by her side.
Of course, strutting past Ryan Seacrest in tandem doesn't necessarily guarantee romantic longevity, as these kaput couples from Oscars past can attest. It does, however, guarantee a lifetime of fancy photos that can be both mesmerizing and unbearably awkward.
Behold, 30 Oscar pairings that you're highly unlikely to ever see again.
