Gabby totally just asked Justin out to the Oscars!

Gabourey Sidibe, who’s been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in Precious, wants Justin Timberlake to be her date for the upcoming awards ceremony, according to People magazine:

“I want to make Justin Timberlake and [The Hurt Locker actor] Anthony Mackie fight it out for the honor of being my date,” Sidibe told the Canadian entertainment TV show eTalk this week. “I’m just going to throw them in the ring and make them do it!”

But if Sidibe had to narrow it down to one guy, her heart is set on Timberlake. At one point during the interview, Sidibe turns toward the camera and makes her direct appeal. “Justin,” she says, “if you’re not doing anything on that night, maybe you could be my date or something. It’s fine. No pressure!”

If Timberlake is employing PR people worth their salt, they are right now insisting that he squire Miss Sidibe to the Oscars and make sure that everyone sees him on her arm. Cuz he’ll never be able to buy publicity like this ever again: the bubbly, effusive Sidibe will never, ever shut up singing his praises. And he’ll look like an absolute sweetie to everyone else. And he’s sure to have a blast with someone who is so clearly enjoying her moment in the spotlight.

This has been your OMG Thought for the Day.
