The New Zealand director jokingly called out for his wayward mum as he was interviewed by E! Entertainment's Giuliana Rancic on his way into the event.

"She's here somewhere," Waititi told Rancic after she asked about his mum influencing Jojo Rabbit.

"Mum, where's my mum?" he yelled to other stars walking the red carpet drawing laughs from Rancic.
