LOS ANGELES — Davis Guggenheim played the dutiful date 10 years ago when his wife, Elisabeth Shue, was Oscar-nominated for ‘‘Leaving Las Vegas.’’ His payback came tonight.

‘‘Now she’s my date, so it’s kind of fun,’’ said Guggenheim, who directed ‘‘An Inconvenient Truth,’’ the story of former Vice President Al Gore’s commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. It was nominated for a documentary feature Oscar.

‘‘I told him to just try to stay in the present and keep reminding himself that he’s actually here,’’ Shue said.
