    As we all know the ratings for the Oscars have been plummeting in recent years culminating in an all-time low of 26.5 million US viewers in 2018. There was a slight uptick last year as 29.6 million tuned in. With global smash hit Joker the most nominated film of the night and several other box office hits such as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917 and Little Women in contention, can the ratings jump back up into the 30 million range or higher?

    The joker noms are definitely gonna bring the rating up from last year. I’m not really expecting it to be too much of a jump though since the Golden Globe ratings weren’t good this year.

    Don’t think it will be crazy high. It’s a little silly to have this event two weeks after the Grammys and one week after the Superbowl. People like to watch these types of things in big groups of friends/family, and they’re probably tired of it by the third weekend in a row.

    Joaquin and Brad Pitt (especially Pitt) are big time movie stars set to win their first oscars. That along with the mainstream popularity of Joker will probably get a lot of people to tune in

    I share the same optimism for an upward tic in ratings. Plus as stated the billion dollar films club.

    There was more hype last year with Bohemian Rhapsody, Black Panther and A Star Is Born. I think this year will be something in between 2018/2019 around 27-28m viewers.

    How many people watched the Oscars at their peak? Anyone know when the highest rated year was and the number of viewers?

    I expect a decrease. Despite the films being so much better, I think they are lesser known than last year. Back to back Grammys, Super Bowl, then Oscar was done on purpose I’m just not sure if the gamble will pay off.

    How many people watched the Oscars at their peak? Anyone know when the highest rated year was and the number of viewers?

    In terms of viewership, the most watched Oscar ceremony in history remains the 70th Academy Awards in 1998, the year Titanic damn near swept the Oscars, with 57.249 million viewers.

    The 86th Academy Awards (2014), the year of 12 Years A Slave / Gravity, where Gravity near swept the Oscars, is the most watched ceremony in the past 19 years (43.740 million viewers).

    Historically, the telecast’s viewership is higher when box-office hits are favored to win the Best Picture award.

    The 76th Academy Awards ceremony, in which The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King swept the Oscars with 11 Awards, including Best Picture, drew 43.56 million viewers.

    I think viewership will climb back up to 30 million viewers this year. Very popular films in contention (Joker, The Irishman, 1917, Once Upon A Time) and lots of huge, recognisable movie stars and Directors (Scorsese, Tarantino, DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, etc).

    Interestingly, exactly 20 years ago, at the 72nd Academy Awards, Sam Mendes won Best Picture and Best Director for American Beauty, in a ceremony that clocked 46.52 million viewers. So if 1917 sweeps, Mendes’ good luck might rub off on ratings and viewerships. LOL.

    It’s going to be between 25 to 30 million. Just like the past 2 years.

    Darlings, it’s going to drop as it deserves because of their disgusting nominations.
