2010 Kennedy Center Honors

Matt (with Elizabeth Bomer) attended the 2010 Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. last night.

Edited to say: I have added 3 more HQ photos!

  • Kavya

    I’m sorry but who is Elizabeth Bomer? She seems familiar but I just cannot recognize the name…It’s not his mom Sissi…Grandma? I don’t know but I want to!

  • I’m pretty sure she’s his mother. Everyone, let’s not discuss it in too much detail though to protect Matt’s privacy. Thanks!

  • Lynda

    So that’s where he got those beautiful eyes! Nice photo.

  • Dy-no-mite

    Sissi is often used as a nickname for Elizabeth. I bet that’s his mom.

  • Rob

    Such a class act.

  • Mary Beth Riccaboni

    It is very nice to see Matt with his mom! Its nice that he is taking her to things like the Kennedy Honors!

  • Carol A

    He really looks handsome. He is clean shaven also. Beautiful pictures.

  • Carol A

    I rate both of these pictures 10’s. LOL

  • Lynne

    How interesting that he was there. It is a rather random thing for him to show up at. I wonder the connection?

  • Kat’s mom

    Matt once performed in Spring Awakenings. Honoree Bill T. Jones won
    Tony(s) for its’ choreography. Perhaps a connection?
    Maybe promoters find it wise for him to be seen at such events?
    Imagine he was the hottest guy there…Even if we never know the connection, we got to see the source of his blue eyes. From the mom perspective, how great to be a proud parent!

  • SaphireDee

    Dynomite: Yes, you are right about the nickname for Elizabeth. There is no doubt that is his mom as there is a very strong resemblance, the same beautiful smile. But the vibrant sparkling baby blues are a dead giveaway. What an endearing pic of both of them and it is such a nice gesture for Matt to bring his Mom to such a prestegious event. I heard the seats themselves are about $6000.

  • teri

    I was thinking, AWWWW, he brought his mom. Nice to see grown children still mention Moms endearingly and take them out to big nights like this.

    Sharply dressed and cleanly shaven, just love these photos. Have to say he’s soooo h-h-handsome here.

  • Minty

    She has really beutiful blue eyes just like Matt, and look at her face bone structure. Matt looks like his mom! Love the pictures, thanks!

  • Lynne

    Well, both tuxes look great (as does Matt!)

  • Carol A.

    Are these from two different events. He is wearing two different outfits.
    Just curious.

  • Rob

    Several associated events ranging from White House reception to dinners, after parties.

  • Kat’s mom

    An article about the event mentioned Saturday evening at the State Dept and last night at the White House. Thanks for these hot pics to start the new
    week!

  • PT

    Love these pictures. Mom really looks proud ,as she should!

  • Milo

    Wow, some news of Matt after a long break. Th
    anx Kelly! You’re the coolest!

  • deb

    This man should always wear formal wear – UNF. I believe that must be his Mom – they have the same eyes and nose.

  • Carol A.

    I read this also: The show was recorded Sunday night for broadcast Dec. 28 on CBS.

  • Sab

    Wow, Matt *really* looks like his Mom. 😀 (I’m sure he wouldn’t mind that being commented on, as he took her along and they were happy to be publicly photographed together.)

    And that Black Tie ensemble is absolutely gorgeous – from the perfectly cut suit, to shirt with studs and patent leather shoes. I’m not sure that could be improved upon. And hey, I wonder if he went commando. 😉

  • Rob

    @Sab – funny…

  • Rosemary

    OH MATT!!! OH MY!!!!!!

  • Kat’s mom

    Thanks for the link, Carol A., describing the star-studded performance
    Matt attended.

  • Chou

  • murry

    Really beautiful pics, thank you Kelly!
    Maybe Elizabeth Bomer is Matt’s aunty 🙂

  • Mary Beth Riccaboni

    Okay I just read on Twitter that he is singing at the Kennedy Center Honors Program that he attended! It airs December 28! How exciting! Can’t wait!

  • WAHT CAN I SAY AFTER ALL THESE COMMENTS …..
    THANKS ALL YOU MADE ME LAUGH ,
    @MURRY YOU RIGHT MAYBE SHE’S MATT’S AUNTY………
    @MARY BETH DID MATT SEND ON TWITTER ?

  • Kavya

    Thanks for letting me know 😉 they look so much alike…even if they are are so far apart in height 😀 Matt is looking HANDSOME!!!!! What’s changed?

  • Kat’s mom

    There is a picture of Matt singing to Kelli O’Hara on tv.com.

  • Great find! 🙂 I will try to locate it in HQ.

  • Janine

    Matt looks so handsome, as usual. If the woman is his mom, that is so cool that she was with him and we finally get to see her. 🙂
