    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.

    Boseman’s widow would have likely given a rousing speech like her others this season. The expectation was just as you stated. She gives an inspiring speech, pan to Questlove, music plays, closing credits, the end. The manipulative production antics wouldn’t have happened unless this category was supposed to end on a high note, not a sad note.

    9,8 million viewers are already not bad for such awful ceremony

    Especially since, as every conservative pundit on social media will tell you, nobody knew it was happening.

    I am from Australia where there is virtually no cable culture, apart from Rupert Murdoch’s Foxtel. I don’t know anyone who has Foxtel. Yet everyone I know pays for at least Netflix, if not others.

    For this Oscars, as with many others, I am outside Australia, in a country with no broadcast, have no access to an American credit card to pay for the Youtube and other similar options (must be registered to US zip  code), yet I am fully willing to pay to watch the show. I’d even watch the goddam ads if I had to. Well, they lost my dollar because I finally found that with my VPN (again, something I am willing to pay for), that I could watch the Oscars ad free on CTV. Thanks Canada! (Don’t ask me about the Australian free-to-air Channel 7 which has a useless streaming site.)

    If they can’t even find a way to make the show accessible for genuinely interested people – and count the global and online viewership rather than just ABC live broadcast viewers, then that’s on them. I’ll keep accessing their content for free because they are such dinosaurs that they can’t find a way to take my money. They are just a bunch of Jack Donaghys who haven’t figured out global audiences, young audiences or new media, and are simply interested in doing business with their cable company mates, and advertisers. They are the ones harming their own brand, it’s no one else’s fault.

    Tries to watch the Oscar live ceremony from another country is like trying to invent a time machine. It’s that hard. But I think this year ceremony is not worth watching because of how dull and terrible the presentations were. No clips, rushed in memoriam, endless speeches and talkies, at least the winners are great though.

    Absolutely, especially for those in Europe/Africa/Middle East/Asia (i.e. most of the world) who would prefer to watch it on demand the following day, or even a highlights package on demand for the casual viewers. Even I wasn’t going to watch at 3am (my time zone) when I had work at 7.30am.

    They’re so out of touch that I bet they’re reconsidering Best Popular Film as the ultimate solution.

    Actually, I’m impressed it got 10M, the ceremony was so unbearable, it deserves even lower, did anyone else hated the stage design? It expected way more, it looked like a restaurant with multiple small screens around, it looked fancy and cheap at the same time.

    However, the worst aspect was no clips, especially for films that many haven’t seen, people want to watch the clips for acting like they used to, this is not the globes. What about the small detailed clips from behind the scenes for the technical categories? It’s unbelievable, and these people in charge of this are supposed to be professionals. I just don’t get it.

    Hopefully, rating keep falling even harder for them to actually celebrate the films like they used to.

    I wonder why they just do it the Dolby Theater but with health protocol and social distancing instead. This year ceremony is so overplanned but so poorly executed.
