Oscars ratings absolutely TANKED — down 50% year over year

The 2021 Oscars fell more than 50% year-over-year in overnight ratings, OutKick has learned. Here’s a look at the past three years:

Holding the Oscars in a train station makes sense – the show was a ghastly train wreck

Follow RT on As evidenced by this most recent disastrously dull and incoherent ceremony, the annual Academy Awards are on the fast track to irrelevance. My biggest question regarding 2021’s egregiously bungled and boring Oscar telecast is…if an awards show collapses but no one is watching, does it make a sound?

I guess to expect leadership from Hollywood is fruitless. I didn’t watch because I believed they were hostage to the BLM mentality so why watch. They are Covid Captured. Anthony Hopkins was a big welcome surprise. But if actors AND actresses had doffed their masks and shown the way to sanity by attending the ceremonies, that would have been a contribution. As it is, it makes one believe in the word that all of successful Hollywood folks are “owned” by the dark side. As to Glen Close, this is Hollywood Royalty? Yee Gods. This was a funeral.

What type of “leadership” did you have in mind? The type that wears a mask as part of the “craft”? After all, they’re part of the “dream factory” and make their substantial livings fooling people into thinking what is fictional is reality. As a Ph.D., what would make you think leadership would emanate from such people?

Well, I don’t know about you but I waited ALL year to see //Glenn Close\\ twerking. 🙂 Holy Wood was always run by degenerates but they knew enough to not let YOU know they were degenerates. That stayed behind closed doors and the “studio system” (recall the story of Fatty Arbuckle for instance) controlled where the “stars” were photographed and what stories were allowed to be printed (think Rock Hudson’s sham ‘wedding’ to some woman he later quietly divorced). Yes, Holy Wood was always a place of reprobates and degenerates but the larger society would not have approved of them… Read more »

Who cares about Hollywood? Governments around the world have forced their populations into purdah because of a fake pandemic, so who wants to see these pseudo ‘stars’ strutting around with such conspicuous consumption while the rest of us are trying to make ends meet? Many of us have found alternative things to do to keep ourselves entertained, I’ve gone back to making bread, taken up watercolour painting, listening to radio (which is far more companionable than television and films), and done more reading. Personally, I hope the film industry never comes back, after all, what does acting ever do for… Read more »

yes, the Oscar this year didn’t have anything of the glamour of past years – I mean way past. And I am not at all surprised that it lost viewers. For one, I had never even heard of, much less seen, any of the movies that won, and that’s a big part of it. For another, while I am sure it was related to “excellence” in the various fields, I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was more about the DNC woke political agenda than excellence, which is sad for those who won who were probably really excellent. They are probably aware… Read more »
