Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves turned the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party on Sunday night into date night, posing arm in arm for photos on the red carpet.

However, several photos of their priceless interaction on the carpet picked up steam in particular after being photobombed by a fellow A-list star.

While posing for the photographers on the carpet, they were joined by none other than Jennifer Lawrence, who was also a presenter at the 96th Academy Awards.

The three got to talking and eventually posed for photos together as well, with their snaps quickly going viral, while also marking a sweet throwback.

It was exactly ten years ago, back in 2014 at the 86th Academy Awards, that Jennifer, now 33, presented Matthew, now 54, with his Oscar for Best Actor, won for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

The two returned to the Oscars stage last night to present the same awards, with Jennifer joining Jessica Lange, Charlize Theron, Sally Field, and last year's winner Michelle Yeoh to present Best Actress to her close friend Emma Stone for Poor Things, her second win in the category.

Matthew joined Ben Kingsley, Forest Whitaker, Nicolas Cage, and the previous winner Brendan Fraser to present Best Actor to Cillian Murphy for Oppenheimer, his first win from his very first nomination.

Oppenheimer ended the night with the most wins, seven, taking home three of the technical prizes, plus Best Actor, Supporting Actor (for Robert Downey Jr.), Best Director (for Christopher Nolan), and the big one, Best Picture.

Poor Things came in second with four wins, for Best Actress and three of the technical awards, followed by The Zone of Interest with two wins (including Best International Feature Film), while other favorites like Barbie, The Holdovers, Anatomy of a Fall, and American Fiction took home one prize each.

Matthew won his first and to date only Oscar back in 2014 for his turn in the 2013 biographical drama, which also won Best Supporting Actor for Jared Leto, the fifth film ever to do so, which was succeeded last night by Oppenheimer
