    Oscars Ratings Crash To All-Time Low; Viewership Falls Under 10M For First Time Ever



    Last night’s 93rd Academy Awards saw Netflix walk away with the most hardware overall, but the Disney empire took the big prizes with wins for Best Picture and Best Animated Film.

    Those Nomadland and Soul trophies better shine pretty bright because for ABC, Sunday’s Oscars were an expected ratings washout.

    In delayed fast national results just released by Nielsen, the 93rd Academy Awards were watched by a mere 9.85 million, with a dismal rating of 1.9 among the 18-49 demographic.

    That is an all-time low for Hollywood’s biggest night — by a huge margin.

    In fact, it is a drop of about 58% in terms of audience from what the previous low of the 2020 Oscars snared on February 9 last year. In terms of the key demo, the 2021 Oscars is down a crushing 64.2% in the earlier ratings from the 2020 Oscars.

    Still, while the number from Sunday night’s Union Station-set show may be jaw-dropping, no one really is surprised by this year’s Oscars falling to a low.

    Politics At The Oscars: Showbiz Figures Focus On Racial Reckoning In Aftermath Of Derek Chauvin Verdict

    Coming off years of declining results in general, plus the last several months of little-watched virtual awards shows, theaters closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and a slate of Oscar nominees that lacked big name recognition, the Disney-owned network and AMPAS long have known they were in for a drubbing. It was only a matter of how bad things were going to be, not if they were going to be bad — and it was bad.

    The question going forward is will 2021 be the Pompeii of awards show ratings or a tremor of sorts due to the particulars of the past year? Put another way, if the trajectory of the end of the pandemic stays on its current domestic track and yet if things still don’t rise next year for the Oscars, how hard will the reckoning be?

    ABC plans to release its official 2021 Oscar data tomorrow, when the final numbers are in. As other broadcasters have done with similar big-ticket events during the past year or so, those numbers will incorporate at home viewing across all domestic time zones, as well as out-of-home viewing.

    This year the three-hour-plus Academy Awards also was available online on the Hulu+Live platform, ABC.com, YouTubeTV, the ABC app and a handful of other options. Whether those numbers will become part of the final jambalaya is TBD, but obviously ABC and the Movie Academy wanted to get the biggest bang they can for their devalued Oscar bucks.

    Wokist Oscars Ever End in an Upset


    The Oscars were basically a celebration of Negro supremacy so Hopkins' victory was extra sweet! A very old White man defeating a dead Negro. The vote for the Oscar categories is by plurality (out of five) except for Best Picture which uses preferential voting. I guess there must be a significant number of Academy members who dislike the wokeness that is overtaking popular culture.

    I've never watched that sh*tshow or any like it, and definitely don't plan on breaking that personal habit. Sounds like just another negro fetishization fest. *yawn*
