After Bashing Trump And GOP “Oscars Ratings Sank Like Titanic”,
America has spoken and the message is loud and clear – we do not like Hollywood running their mouths about politics.
Last night’s Oscars telecast got drubbed in the ratings sinking to a new all-time low. Last year, when politics was left out, there was a slight rise in the ratings.
So Hollywood goes back to bad habits and literally most of America tuned them out. Again.
According to Report From The New York Post: The biggest flop of the award show season? The award show itself.
The Oscars made history for the smallest audience the show has ever received after a night of predictable wins and polarizing acceptance speeches.
About 23.6 million people watched the 92nd installment of the show, which showered Bong Joon Ho with awards including Best Director and Best Picture for his widely acclaimed social horror film “Parasite.”
And while it was the most-watched show of the awards season, even the promise of a hostless show couldn’t hoist up Hollywood’s big night amid repeat wins by actors who already took home Golden Globes, SAGs and BAFTAs.
The broadcast, which ran for 3 hours and 35 minutes, scored a 5.3 rating in the coveted adults 18-49 demo, based on Nielsen’s Live + Same Day Fast National ratings.
In 2019, the first year the show went on without a host, it saw an 11% overall viewership bump over the year prior, with 29.6 million viewers. It also scored a 7.7 rating among the 18-49 demographic.
The 2018 awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, hit a then-all-time low of 26.5 million viewers and a 6.8 rating in the 18-49 demo. But even that was more than this year.

Also report From The Daily Mail: Says Viewers were nauseated by the number of celebrities who used their acceptance speeches as an opportunity to make a political statement.
Joaquin Phoenix talked about how mankind ‘plundered nature’s resources’ and complained about the artificial insemination of cows.
Brad Pitt complained about the recent impeachment trial and how former national security adviser John Bolton was not allowed to testify at it.
While their complaints were the most memorable, there were plenty others.
Documentary filmmaker Julia Reichert made a Marxist call ‘workers of the world’ to ‘unite’.
Jane Fonda made a statement about waste and Sigourney Weaver said ‘all women are superheroes’.
Many viewers called the stars ‘hypocrites’.
From Variety: “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” he said on stage. “I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it — in the end, the adults do the right thing.”
He went on to further pay tribute to Tarantino: “Tarantino, you are original, you are one of a kind. The film industry would be a much drier place without you.”
Backstage in the press room, Pitt was asked about his comments concerning Bolton. “I was really disappointed with this week,” he said. “I think when gamesmanship trumps doing the right thing, it’s a sad day, and I don’t think we should let it slide. I’m very serious about that.”
