    Oh my God, who cares about ratings anymore?? Nobody watches live television unless it’s The Bachelor.

    I predicted this! Other than Parasite, who was there to root for?

    The nominees were terrible this year.

    I believe this year there were actually people rooting for more nominees than previous years: Joker, 1917 and OUATIH had also a lot of supporters.

    My guess is the timing, people didn’t had the chance to watch more of the nominated films, even I got a pretty low percentage this year and I was daily looking up for the films I didn’t watch on cinema.

    Live television is going the way of the fax machine and dial-up internet. The Academy should wait for their ABC contract to wind down, and then approach a streaming service for a two hour ceremony. Cut the performances, hand out the trophies, no monologues, just get down to business a la SAG. The playing field has changed, and I feel like the Academy is going to watch their ratings fall into single digits over the next few years if they don’t shake it up a bit.

    Having said that, Middle America seems to have hit it’s quota for listening to movie stars get political. What was once escapism is now a bitter reminder that the world is off it’s axis.

    No Asian actors nominated.

    No Lady Gaga. At least as a presenter or replacing the dreadful Billie Eilish.

    Jennifer Lopez undeservedly snubbed. To the secret voter who said eff her, well eff you! Lopez got her revenge with the Super Bowl.

    Cynthia Problematic Erivo as the lone black actor nominated when there was Lupita, Alfre, Aldis, Kelvin, Octavia, etc. who ALL deserved noms.

    Black people care about the Oscars. We do not watch when we continue to get overlooked! It’s even worse for Asians and Latinos.

    I’m not saying to nominate people for the sake of diversity. But white folks should’ve been the minority this year. Instead, ScarJo got TWO nominations!!!

    Again, what reason was there to watch? To see pill popper Zellweger?

    I think it’s due to te nominees. The Best Picture nominees were great but all of the other categories were quite questionable. I personally vowed not to watch due to the exclusion of minorities (which actually helped with the voting).

    Not having a host doesn’t help ratings. Of course it doesn’t matter to people who will watch regardless like us Derbyites but it matters to the general audience. Who the host is used to be a major talking point leading up to and including the night of the Oscars. But as Chris Rock said on Sunday, thank Twitter and specifically Film Twitter for no hosts because they jump on whoever the Academy chooses with mob mentality and dig up something they said years ago that disqualifies them.

    Unsurprising that nobody wanted to watch the likes of Laura Dern and Brad Pitt win Oscars for playing themselves.

    It’s too funny that after they snubbed JLo she ended up beating their ratings at the Superbowl. The flavour!

    FYC:

    Antonio Banderas and Asier Etxeandia, Dolor y Gloria (Best Actor/Supporting Actor)
    Emily Beecham, Little Joe (Best Actress)
    Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, The Good Liar (Best Actor/Actress)

    There were few movies that I liked that were released in 2019. I did not feel motivated to see many of the Oscar nominated movies at all.

    I go to an Oscar party every year where people dress up as someone from a nominated movie and I look forward to seeing the movies and discussing them at the party. I focused more on my outfit than on seeing movies. I dressed up as Elton John.

    Also, Glenn Weiss directed the Oscar ceremony. They did not recognize Luke Perry, Oscar nominee Michael J. Pollard and Tim Conway. Glenn Weiss is the one who took time out of the Emmy ceremony a few years ago and proposed. Glenn did not care about taking time away from the Emmys, but yet he directs a show in which they claimed that they did not have enough time to recognize Luke Perry and others that they omitted.

    Emmys Surprise Proposal: How the Oscars Director Hijacked the Emmy Awards Without Telling Anyone.
    The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, the organization responsible for hosting the Oscars, is explaining why Luke Perry, Cameron Boyce and other stars were left out of the in memoriam tribute during Sunday’s ceremony, citing there was “limited available time.”

    “The Academy receives hundreds of requests to include loved ones and industry colleagues in the Oscars In Memoriam segment. An executive committee representing every branch considers the list and makes selections for the telecast based on limited available time,” the statement reads, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “All the submissions are included on Oscar.com and will remain on the site throughout the year. Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce are remembered in the Oscar.com gallery.”

    The annual segment honors Hollywood notables who’ve died in the past year. Kobe Bryant, Kirk Douglas, Diahann Carroll and Danny Aiello were amongst those highlighted during Sunday’s ceremony. Other stars who passed away in the past year but were not in the tribute include Jan-Michael Vincent, Michael J. Pollard and Tim Conway.

    L o l

    The Superbowl was always gonna get bigger viewership than the Oscars Jlo or not, this comparison doesn’t even make any sense

    Anyway, this ceremony was a complete nonevent outside of the Parasite sweep. The whole thing was a borefest until Joon-Ho won Director

    Having a host won’t fix the ratings, people just don’t want to tune in and sit through an unnecessarily long ceremony when the winner’s speeches will be published on YouTube a day after. What the Oscars needs to do is to stop wasting time during the ceremony and go streaming.

    This is hilarious though because there was many people here that swore that Joker being nominated would save the ratings.

    NO GAGA NO RATINGS

    Billie Eilish brought us the record-low ratings for both Grammys and Oscars.

    And they should capitalize on that. I’d recommend having the ceremony earlier in the day so that it maximizes the audience worldwide, say, at 15:00 LA time or earlier.

    I make it a yearly thing to watch the Oscars live. My body hates me for it because I’m currently based in Europe so the show is on from 2 until 5:30. I wouldn’t mind having the show on earlier. I also don’t think it’s just Europeans who suffer from it. I follow people in the Eastern time zone on twitter and a lot of them tuned out because the show drags on and on.

    there's way too many movies that i haven't seen and i'm stressed

    ABC should find a way to monetize streaming the show to everywhere. They shouldn’t depend on live viewers as a means to define the success of the telecast. People who cut their cable subscriptions can’t watch live on their website.

    Maybe put it on Disney+ once it’s done rolling out worldwide. Eliminate the pay wall just for the telecast, put it on social media. I don’t know. Change it up.
