Hollywood Uncensored: What Do Actors Really Feel Like When They Lose an Award?
08.20.12 by Ryan
Let's face it, when it comes to watching award shows, there's as much interest in watching those that do not win as those that do, which explains why the cameras remain poised on the nominees as they clap for the winner while they make their way to the podium.
With the Emmy Awards arriving next month, Hollywood Uncensored's Sam Rubin spoke to a few Emmy nominees to see how they will feel if, for some reason, they were to lose in their respective categories. While Jason Ritter, nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his work on Parenthood, supplied his own answer (see the video above), Loretta Divine, nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her work on Grey's Anatomy, warned that actors have to keep their composure at all times, no matter what award is given away.
"The camera is always on you," said Devine, who then referenced Samuel L. Jackson's infamous facial expression after Mo'Nique's Best Supporting Actress speech at the 2010 Academy Awards. "Sam Jackson at the Oscars showed his true feelings and everybody was shocked. You can't do like a real frown or anything if you're not the one getting it."
