'Justin, if you're not doing anything on that night, maybe you could be my date or something,' says Gabourey Sidibe to invite the 'SexyBack' singer to accompany her at the 2010 Academy Awards.

Oscar nominee wants to take to the Academy Awards - as her date. The "" star, who is a self-confessed superfan, has revealed her big night at the Oscars would be perfect if Mr. "SexyBack" himself would agree to walk the red carpet with her.

But she wouldn't be too disappointed if "" star called and asked her to take him instead. She says, "I want to make Justin Timberlake and Anthony Mackie fight it out for the honor of being my date. I'm just going to throw them in the ring and make them do it!"

But Timberlake would be her first choice, and she made a public plea to the singer/actor during a recent appearance on Canadian TV show "eTalk". She said, "Justin, if you're not doing anything on that night, maybe you could be my date or something. It's fine. No pressure."
