They were talking about this on the radio. Ten, twenty+ years ago the Oscars were a huge deal, there wasn't much competition of other things to watch and what little programming there was typically aired reruns that night. Now there's just a saturation of other content, not to mention the way we consume media has changed so much. All scheduled programming has been on the decline, as On-Demand streaming increases. Also, awards shows in general have been losing viewership; they have always been kind of boring in general and these days you can just look up the winners of the categories you care about online, as well as catching all the other stuff you might care about (what people were wearing, interviews, performances etc) in clip form without having to watch the whole thing.

Viewership has been on the decline for over a decade. I stopped watching when the show went on for 8 days instead of 2 hours years ago. The Tony is a lot more fun to watch than the Oscars. Especially when Neil Patric Harris is hosting.

Millionaires who are completely out of touch with regular people and who have no moral compass. No one needs to applaud their nonsense.



This year's State of the Union address had an even bigger drop in viewers. People are getting political burnout.

It's just the opportunity for the super wealthy to feel that they're "victims" even as they stand behind the Velvet Rope, a safe distance from the riff raff, whose lives they so often champion on film, while staying quarantined from them in real life.
Are they also protected by armed security?
Nothing is critic proof.
