Oscar Ratings Plummet to All-Time Low

The ratings for this year’s Oscars have now plummeted to a shocking new low.

This year’s show reportedly only drew a measly 9.85 million viewers, in comparison to last year’s 23.64 million.

As Yahoo News reports:

Apparently, not that many people tuned in to watch Chadwick Boseman‘s stunning upset anyway. Early numbers are in for Sunday’s 93rd Academy Awards, aka the “pandemic Oscars,” and they aren’t great.

Viewership reached an all-time low, according to reports, with the 2021 show averaging only 9.85 million people per Nielsen’s Live + Same Day preliminary national numbers. That’s a 58 percent decline from the 2020 Oscars, which drew 23.64 million viewers and previously held the record for worst ratings in the show’s history.

Like every other show this awards season, the 2021 Oscars pivoted from its usual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ABC’s live telecast featured an intimate group of nominees gathered in person at L.A.’s Union Station, while others appeared via satellite around the world. It seemed like it was going to work (at first) as Sunday’s event got off to a strong start thanks to Regina King. But the host-less spectacle quickly fell flat.

There were no clips from many of the nominated films, no live musical performances — aside from Glenn Close’s “Da Butt” dance — and the decision to change the order of the final three awards turned out to be a disaster.

While hollyweird happens to be in California, NOT all of California is about hollyweird; so please take note that hollyweird is NOT all of California, there are plenty of other things from here that you do both want and need, unless you would rather go without food……….

Awards for the biggest hypocrite to care about Burn Loot Murder and the systemic reverse racism since affirmative action was installed!
It was only a shame their pals Jeffrey Epstein or Harvey Weinstein weren’t available to celebrate with them..

Yes, I notice the picture above looks very diverse. Hey, Hollywood, still too many white people in the picture. Still, 9.85 million stupid people tuned in to watch that garbage. I am glad that Piers Morgan still was putting down these shallow people. Hollywood and people like Cher, Madonna, Bette Midler, Robert Di Niro are such bores.

So they close theatres for almost a year, and they have awards for them? Can’t remember the last time I went to a movie theatre.. They used to be enjoyable, until the liberals put their alphabet lgbtqrstuvw stench on everything..
Trying to make an alternative lifestyle normal, is like adding ketchup to an excrement sandwich!

Why in the world would anyone listen to actors? Most of them have barely made it through high school, if that. Both DeNiro and Cher dropped out of high school when the were 16. Madonna and Midler dropped out of college. They have NO business providing any commentary from their wealthy bubble. They didn’t even have the two degrees my grandfather had: 1) School of Common Sense 2) School of Hard Knocks.

They moved the homeless out of the area, put up fencing io to keep them away !! Least
they could’ve done was invite the homeless in to have a live audience, let them nosh a bit,
then throw them out, again. No Way that would’ve happened !!

Chadwick Boseman deserves far better recognition than the fake egos in Hollywood could ever honestly bestow unto him. As a person he was a standout in a crowd of, in my opinion, want-a-be morally & emotionally strong people. As far as the screen actors guild goes, well they deserve each other and I will never patronize another of their products.

I just wonder how these actors feel about their stupid awards show (they give awards to themselves) when the ratings have fallen from over 30 million viewers to less than 10 in two years? Nobody is watching guys. I mean, less than 10 million is like nobody. Why is no one watching? Because they are stupid leftist jerks who want to tell everyone else how to live, what to think, what to buy, and so on. Meanwhile, they do the opposite of what they want me to do. They want me to drive an electric tin can, while they fly around in private jets for example. They tell us how bad we are. That our country is horrible. But they are brilliant and if only we did what they told us to do everything would be peaches and cream. When we don’t do what they want us to do, they insult us. That’s no way to make friends and influence people. Or gain market share.

We have no need for celebrities trying tell us who we should vote for. in all honesty we could care less about what they have to say. If they would stick to acting instead of telling us about their political views the awards ratings would probably get better but as long as they try pull the Deniro bullshit it won’t be any better.
