Dear Hollywood: We kinda hate you back


Well, file this under “nobody’s surprised.”

Last night’s Academy Awards program was the lowest-rated ever.

I guess the idea of being hectored and scolded by out-of-touch Hollywood elites just isn’t the ratings bonanza they think it is.

From Deadline:

“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.”

Sorry, Hollywood. We’re just not that into you.

The Academy Awards have always been a self-gratifying circle-jerk. But now that these awards shows are being utilized to condescend to normal people, they’re even less appealing.

In fact, I think you could make the argument that the rate of sanctimonious ranting is inversely proportional to the number of Americans tuning in.

The truth is, we really don’t care to listen to the tiresome lectures of the elite, out-of-touch morons in Hollywood.

And you would think at some point, they would catch on.

But if I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath while you wait.

That’s the problem with being insufferably arrogant and unbelievably self-absorbed. You’re incapable of recognizing cause and effect.

Hollywood actually still believes that America writ large waits with baited breath to hear what they have to say.

But just like the NFL learned, we are growing weary of divisive politics infecting absolutely every aspect of our lives.

And that goes double for the sex-enabling, anti-gun hypocrites and their virtue-signaling nonsense at the Academy Awards.

    …and hosted by one of these morons:

    Quote from “The Man Show”

    Jimmy Kimmel: We are building a dam.
    Adam Carolla: A dam to hold back the tidal wave of feminization that is flooding this country.
    Jimmy Kimmel: A dam to stop the river of estrogen that is drowning us in political correctness.
    Adam Carolla: A dam to urinate off of when we’re really drunk.
    Jimmy Kimmel: We call this dam…
    Both: …The Man Show.

    You can’t make this up!

    It isn’t just politics invading every aspect of our lives, but immoral degenerates telling us up is down and if we don’t comply we are evil.

    It gets a little more tedious each year, like the old Miss America Pageant from years ago. Which is, I’m happy to say, finally gone.

    I guess that’s a good thing, because it suggests that Oscar Night might go down the same rabbit hole.
