Oscar ratings reach record low in the US

Opening Up the Oscars: The Awkward Politics of the Academy Awards

"Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY", he tweeted Tuesday.

The video, shot late Sunday night as many guests were leaving the Governors Ball, shows a man in a tuxedo who appears to be 47-year-old Terry Bryant holding an Oscar statuette highly and proudly as an onlooker cheers.

Hollywood's biggest night that celebrates the best in movies over the previous year is becoming a smaller attraction for TV viewers. They ignored their own blatant hypocrisy, all the while congratulating themselves on being the culturally "woke" arbitrators of morality - a nauseating recipe for unwatchable TV.

Even though the four lead actor awards were won by white actors, some results of the awards show demonstrated that Hollywood is taking baby steps to enter this new age.

McDormand, 60, whose character seemed to channel the anger of the #MeToo movement that has dominated Hollywood and beyond, asked all the female nominees - across directing, cinematography, costumes and some 20 other categories - to stand up in the audience and be recognised.

President Donald Trump loves to feud over ratings and didn't hold back on the record low viewership for Sunday's Oscars.

The Associated Press reported that this marked the first time Oscar viewership dropped below 30 million people. "And the truth is, if we are successful here, if we can work together to stop sexual harassment in the workplace, if we can do that, women will only have to deal with harassment all the time, in every other place they go". Conservative media didn't hesitate to link the low ratings to the powerful messages from social advocates.

A number of factors - outside of Hollywood star power - likely played into the ratings drop, including lack of interest in nominated films and a general decrease in viewership for live events. Later in the broadcast, he said, "We don't make movies like Call Me by Your Name for money". And Jimmy Kimmel has offered an appropriate show of gratitude.

Awards ceremonies have also become a major stage to voice political dissent ever since Trump took charge as President.
