Actress Julia Roberts might miss Oscar Awards 2015 which is due this Sunday as news just came in that the stunning actress' mother Betty Lou Bredemus has passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 80.

Lou Bredemus died on Thursday morning after battling suffering lung cancer. Her death occurred just one year after Julia lost her half-sister, Nancy Motes, to an apparent overdose.

Julia's mother and grandmother of 'American Horror Story' star Emma Roberts, Lou Bredemus, who used to be an acting school teacher has four children, Eric Roberts, 58, Lisa Gillan, 49, Julia, 47, and Motes, who died last year at the age of 37.

She once ran an acting school in Smyrna, Georgia. Her first husband, Walter Grady Roberts, with whom she has Julia, died from throat cancer when the actress was just 10-years-old.

The actress was very close to her mother and Betty Lou was reportedly living at Julia's home with her son-in-law and three grandchildren before her death.

Julia who is currently filming "The Secret in Their Eyes", hasn't issued any comment on her mother's death. It is also not known when and where her mother will be buried.

Hearing the sad news, we might consider that Julia Roberts is not going to be attending the Oscars which is going to be held this Sunday on Feb. 22 at Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Julia's family.
