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.
“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.
Hollywood so upset about harassment of women it gave an Oscar to a guy who paid a settlement to a woman who took him to court for assault. #KobeBryant

The oscars original reason for being on TV: to see genuine movie stars. now it's a corporate retreat for an industry devoted to non-movie stars virtue signaling. I feel like i'm watching something that I accidentally walked into at a Marriott convention center.
