Once a Mouseketeer, always a Mouseketeer.

Former Mickey Mouse Club co-stars Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling were caught having a moment and catching up at the Oscars on Sunday. First, Timberlake offered Gosling a quick pat on the shoulder while making his way through the audience to perform his Academy Award-nominated hit song, "Can't Stop the Feeling." (Watch for the blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment around 03:40.)

Later, Timberlake was photographed standing with Gosling and his sister, Mandi, appearing to put his arm around the La La Land actor for a hug at one point.

Timberlake and Gosling were both in attendance as nominees on Sunday night, the former for Best Original Song and the latter for Best Actor, though both walked away from the ceremony empty-handed.

The duo's friendship dates back to the early '90s when the future stars shared the small screen with the likes of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Keri Russell on the Disney Channel series. At one point, Gosling even lived with Timberlake and his mother, Lynne, when his own mom had to return to Canada for work obligations.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published earlier this month, Timberlake revealed that he and Gosling had not kept in touch over the years.

"We aren't the closest of friends, for whatever reason," he stated.

While we keep hoping for a rekindled friendship between these two, there’s one relationship that Timberlake definitely does not seem keen to revive: the one with his former boy band, *NSYNC. At the end of his performance on Sunday, Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel quipped that he hoped Timberlake's former *NSYNC band members were watching, "because if they were, I think there's a really good chance they're going to let you back in the band."

Timberlake's reply, or lack thereof, said it all.

Awk-ward!
