Now that "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe has garnered a Best Actress nomination at this year's Academy Awards, one important question remains: Who is she taking as arm candy to the Mar. 7 ceremony?

None other than Justin Timberlake ... well, as long as that's OK with him.

"I want to make Justin Timberlake and ["The Hurt Locker" star] Anthony Mackie fight it out for the honor of being my date," the self-described *NSYNC fanatic told Canadian TV show "eTalk" earlier this week.

"I'm just going to throw them in the ring and make them do it!"

During the interview, Gabby even turned to the camera and spoke to her crush directly, saying: "Justin, if you're not doing anything on that night, maybe you could be my date or something. It's fine. No pressure!"

Besides, wouldn't they make a "precious" pair?
