But as we wiped away our tears of disappointment, we were instantly consoled when we were met with the incredibly stunning sight of JLaw's Dior gown.
Emerging from her limo in the red hot frock (complete with sultry keyhole cut-outs), the "Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy" nominee had heads turning as she sported the structured, sleeveless number with an open back. Even Katy Perry was a fan!
But the ensemble's jaw-dropping feature? A diamond Chopard choker necklace. WOW. JUST WOW.
The "Joy" star finished off her look with a slicked-back and voluminous updo, that went perfectly with her minimal makeup, which included a glossy light red lip.
But here's the thing, guys. Back in 2013, Lawrence won a Golden Globe for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook" wearing a red Christian Dior Couture gown...
Could tonight's Dior gown be a winner, too? We'll just have to sit back and watch the show to find out.
