Even A-listers want to make their parents proud.

And Golden Globes nominee Reese Witherspoon knows the most meaningful award of all is an adorable, emoji-filled text from her mother.

The Wild star – who was up for best actress in a motion picture, drama, but lost to Still Alice‘s Julianne Moore – posted a sweet exchange with her mom Betty to Instagram on Monday, showing everyone exacting where her Southern charm comes from.

“Aww thanks Mom for all the words of encouragement,” Witherspoon, 38, captioned her screenshot.

The best part? Mama Witherspoon’s all-too-familiar habit of signing each and every text with a heart and “mom” – and saying that what her daughter needs to get through awards season is a strong cup of joe. Mother knows best!
