Piers Morgan took a uniquely negative approach to his red carpet interviews on CNN, rather than just gushing interminably. He asked many of the nominees he spoke to, including Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, and Christoph Waltz, to show us their “loser face” — what they would look like when they didn’t get the prize. Waltz, at least, didn’t have to use his.
Like the later part of the night, the red carpet festivities dragged on. OK, we know that, at this point in celebrity culture, the pomp is the point, as much if not more than the prizes. But seriously, folks, let’s get to the gold so the night won’t turn to lead before it has even started.
