Piers Morgan furiously brands Oscars ‘boring train-wreck’ in savage take-down
Piers Morgan took a savage swipe at Sunday night's Oscars as he slammed the 93rd annual Academy Awards in his latest column.
The 56-year-old ex Good Morning Britain presenter didn't hold back as he branded the awards ceremony 'unwatchable' as he claimed: "the Oscars as we know it died last night".
Piers penned in his article for MailOnline: "I'd have been genuinely more entertained if I'd actually just watched trains coming and going."
He also made a dig at the attendees as he insisted he's "seen more famous people" at his "Christmas pub drinks party."
The show was forced to undergo changes due to the pandemic, but unforgiving Piers fumed: "Honestly, if there was an Oscar for Worst Horror Story, it would go to whoever decided it would be a good idea to hold this year’s event in a train station."
Piers said he was annoyed that there were no "big musical, theatrical or comedy performances"
He continued that the show was pointless due to there being "no big movies to celebrate".
The journalist did however admit that Best Picture winner Nomadland was beautifully made, but he added: "pretty much nobody watched it."
Continuing his savage take-down, Piers said viewers were "treated to a breathtakingly boring procession of self-indulgent heavily scripted actors delivering supremely virtuous identity-politics speeches."
The outspoken former newspaper editor fumed: "The tragic truth is that the Oscars as we know it died last night – woked to death by a craven collective desire from those involved to preach not entertain, to lecture rather than make us laugh, and to virtue-signal instead of performing."
Piers added: "Well last night, the Hollywood Dream morphed into a Hollywood Nightmare."
He penned at the end: "Hollywood made the Oscars a howling train-wreck".
