    Oscar Ratings Down, Eye All-Time Low In Early Estimates

    It was an Oscar do-over last night for host Jimmy Kimmel, producers Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd and Best Picture presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Following last year’s Envelopegate, which led to Beatty and Dunaway inadvertently announcing a wrong Best Picture winner, the quartet’s second go-around went without a hitch.

    The good news did not carry over to ratings for the 90th Academy Awards, which (correctly) crowned The Shape of Water as Best Picture. Last night’s ceremony drew a 18.9 Live+Same Day rating in the metered market households. That was off 16% from last year’s 22.4 rating, which was a nine-year low. The 18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, below the previous low ratings point, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9), hosted by Jon Stewart, when No Country For Old Men won Best Picture.


    Last year, those metered market results last year translated to 32.9 million viewers — also a nine-year low — and a 9.1 rating among adults 18-49. We will update with viewership and demo numbers when they become available later today.

    The best that Hollywood’s big night has done in the first round of ratings over the past decade-plus was back in 2005...

    America doesn't want what rich, liberal faggots are selling.

    Sure they do. Otherwise there wouldn't be new movies every week.
    The Oscars is just too long.
    I watched a few minutes of it to see the the dresses.
    Kimmel's opening was funny without being over the top.

    I think it is more a matter that there is an increasing disconnect between the movies people like and the movies that are nominated for Oscars.

    In the 60s, the movies up for Oscars were movies people had actually seen. Today, not so much.

    And the Hollyweird shitbags haven't got a clue why their annual circle jerk ratings keep falling.

    How's that definition of insanity go again?
