Piers Morgan patrols the red carpet at Sunday's 86th Academy Awards

Once again donning a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, and this time around pairing the ensemble with a Tom Ford shirt, on Sunday evening Piers Morgan stood "suited and booted" amongst the world's biggest film stars, anchoring CNN's red carpet coverage of the 86th Academy Awards.

For nearly two hours the "Piers Morgan Live" host did what he does best: rubbed elbows and traded jabs with the likes of Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kate Hudson, while nearly charming the white dinner jacket off the back of Jared Leto.

Piers Morgan on his exclusive interview: "Rachel Jeantel told us more about Trayvon Martin last night in 25 minutes than I heard in the entire trial"

On the heels of an exclusive interview with Rachel Jeantel, this morning Piers Morgan joined CNN's "Newsroom" program to offer his insight and reaction.

After watching a clip alongside anchor Michaela Pereira, the "Piers Morgan Live" host explained his impressions of the young woman who had unwillingly become the early star of the George Zimmerman trial:

"Rachel Jeantel is not uneducated. She's a smart cookie," said Morgan, refuting what he deemed to be the account of some of the jury, and the national media as a whole. "What she didn't like was the environment that Don West created in that courtroom of hostility. That's a different thing."

With his interview from the evening before having offered a side of Jeantel that proved remarkably different than the persona she portrayed during her testimony, Morgan suggested that her exclusive comments have opened a window into the life and world of Trayvon Martin that hadn't previously been accessible: FULL POST

Eva Longoria on being an Obama surrogate: "I've been speaking to two big communities important to the president, the women's community and the latino community"

This evening Piers Morgan continued his coverage of the Democratic National Convention from Charlotte, North Carolina, welcoming actress Eva Longoria for a live prime-time interview.

Prior to digging into the party platform, Morgan first talked platform footwear, noting his guest's  6 1/2" Christian Louboutin Dafsling pumps:

"I have to stand taller here," joked Longoria. "There are a lot of important people."

Longoria, the co-chair of Obama's national re-election campaign, will address the DNC on Thursday before the president takes the stage:

"I was honored they would ask me," admitted the former "Desperate Housewives" star. "I've been speaking to two big communities important to the president – the women's community and the latino community – and so I will be speaking about those issues, a little narrative about my American Dream and how I'm living proof of that."

Piers Morgan joins Brooke Baldwin on "CNN Newsroom" to talk Casey Anthony: "I thought it was an extraordinary moment"

In the aftermath of Tuesday's fascinating phone call with Casey Anthony, this afternoon Piers Morgan joined host Brooke Baldwin on "CNN Newsroom" to share insight from the conversation.

Joining the Atlanta-based program from his New York City studio, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host detailed the experience, touching upon everything from Anthony's state of mind, to how he landed the interview to begin with:

"Well, it was very unexpected, because I was interviewing her lawyer, and he'd been booked a few days before," explained Morgan. "I said 'Oh, is there any chance that Casey Anthony could call in? Is that even a remote possibility?' And he said, 'Well, no, not on air, but what I can do, is get her on the phone for you right now.'"

As the recent Diamond Jubilee co-anchors continued to discuss Tuesday's now-famous phone call, Morgan revealed what he felt were some of the most-surprising elements: FULL POST

The 80's are back, and Piers Morgan isn't happy about it

As today's film and television culture looks back to yesteryear, the host of "Piers Morgan Tonight" is feeling less nostalgic, and more frustrated. As referenced on in an article entitled "Piers to Hollywood: Get out of the stone (washed) ages", Piers Morgan used a recent edition of his franchise segment "Only in America" to say of the 1980's, "personally, I would rather forget them."

Nonetheless, Hollywood has hitched it's wagon to the days of stone washed jeans and really big hair, bringing back such hits as "21 Jump Street," "Footloose," and even the soon-to-be-released "Dirty Dancing" reboot.

While Morgan finds the throwback efforts to be "backward," Piper Weiss of Yahoo! Shine says the trend is a natural progression, as the children influenced by 1980's, are today's directors and producers:

"It's kind of fun to have a reason to introduce our pop culture past to kids today and make them more media-literate in terms of how their stuff has been influenced by the stuff we grew up with."

To read more about Piers' resistance to the 1980's resurgence, and the "Only in America" franchise, check out the full article.

Piers Morgan on Andrew Breitbart: "A fascinating character, complex, very divisive"

In the wake of Andrew Breitbart's surprising death, Piers Morgan spoke candidly with Brooke Baldwin on "CNN Newsroom" earlier today.
