Being nominated for an Oscar is a serious thing. Unless you're Sam Smith's dad.

The singer put up a picture of the present his dad sent him before the Academy Awards Sunday afternoon: An unripe banana with the message "Hope you get lucky at your after-show party."

"Thanks dad for the good luck present," Smith captioned the pic. The singer is nominated in the Best Original Song Category for his song "Writing's on the Wall" from the most recent James Bond film, Spectre. He's up against Lady Gaga and The Weeknd, among others.

Lady Gaga, however, has not yet Instagrammed the banana her dad sent her.
