They deserve those ratings for that abysmal show. The show was the prime example of how to lose viewers within 20 minutesApril 26, 2021 at 7:56 pm #1204230697
Best parts about the show: Frances McDormand takeover in the last 20 minutes of the show, Glenn dancing, and Youn winning her oscar + brilliant speech.April 26, 2021 at 8:03 pm #1204230707
To give more thought to my Netflix idea, I thought of this idea.
Maybe if hypothetically the Oscars collaborated with Netflix to air the ceremony at the same time that it airs on TV. They can advertise it on Netflix with a trailer or something, and then you have the option of watching it live without the option of pausing. Then once it is over, it could stay in the curated library for a set period of time for anyone to watch normally like anything else on Netflix for anyone who was unable to catch it the first time.
I am sorry for my past behaviour. I am sorry for being a turd. I would like to try and be better.April 26, 2021 at 10:51 pm #1204230842
Netflix in theory seems like a good idea, but that is just conflict of interest waiting to happen, unless the Oscars work out a plan with all major streaming apps then it may work.
I also say streaming live and globally on YouTube (and having it available for at least a couple of days after) will work out great for visibility.April 26, 2021 at 11:41 pm #1204230872
Worst set of ratings for one of the worst ceremonies in history by quite some margin.
And some of the overall best set of winners in some time.

The Best Picture winners of the last 16 years were small films. The Oscars need to be a little bit more Commercial like when Return of the King, Titanic and Gladiator won Best PictureApril 27, 2021 at 10:55 am #1204231736

Yes but those movies were timeless. Now the name of the game is timely. If a movie doesn’t have some immediate socio-political connection, fat chance it’s gonna win. Epics usually aren’t interested in that but if they tired to be timely that’s still seen as tacked on and less releavnt than spectacle. While small movies that zero on it come off as important.April 27, 2021 at 11:22 am #1204231804
True. But they mentioned BLM a lot. Chauvin verdict. I’m sure most people don’t know about BLM or Chauvin verdict. Too local news

Millions of people are dying Worldwide, the world is not here for red carpets, fashions designers and a bunch of overpaid people talking about themselves.
Right now, the heroes that matter are nurses, doctors, scientists.April 27, 2021 at 1:56 pm #1204232133
Honey, people are sick and tired of seeing a bunch of white people win year after year. BARF!April 27, 2021 at 3:06 pm #1204232268

Gosh, I’m so surprised that a near-century-old institution that refuses to adapt to the technological and political times has lost all its popularity.April 27, 2021 at 9:54 pm #1204232609
Even if Chadwick had won the ending would have been odd. So I guess his wife and maybe more of his family would have spoken. (Heath Ledger had three people accept his.)
Then what? It would have been a serious somber sad moment and then Questlove was just going to close the show like he did in a perky happy way?
Seems like they should have brought back Regina King who has some gravitas to end the show if they were expecting to end it on a sad note.
