If you need a pick-me-up today, you could do a lot worse than to feast your eyes on these pictures of Dev Patel playing around with his tiny co-star from the film Lion.

26-year-old Dev will today be nervously awaiting his trip to the 2017 Academy Awards, where he is nominated in the category of Best Supporting Actor, for his role in the blockbuster film about an epic journey across India.

The movie is actually up for a slew of other awards, including Best Picture and Best Cinematography.

If Dev is quaking in his boots, though, he wasn't showing any signs of it last night as he attended The Weinstein Company's pre-Oscars bash.

At the party, looking very dapper in an open-collared shirt, Dev made a show of entertaining his tiny co-star Sunny Pawar, who plays the younger version of his character.

Sunny's role in the film has been widely praised as an incredible debut for a seriously young actor.

If you're keen to watch the Oscars 2017 coverage, you'll have to tune into Sky Cinema, where the coverage of the Red Carpets and later the awards will be kicking off at around 10.30pm.
