Oscars Get Lowest Ratings Ever, Less Than Half of Last Year’s Viewership (UPDATE)

Affirmative action awards ceremonies are not meaningful to anyone.

A bunch of movies were released in the last year. It was all the same movies that would have been released, except for the James Bond movie, which they are still holding.

It was just all garbage.

Hollywood is proving that there is no ability to unify a country around multiculturalism, or that people who support multiculturalism are talentless, or both.

The Academy Awards hit rock bottom with its Sunday night disaster, bringing it into line with the rest of US awards – with audiences having grown tired of the woke sermons and politics that increasingly dominate such shows.

The downward trend didn’t stop Oscar producers from trying valiantly to spice up the turgid blandness of the evening, but their heroic efforts nevertheless left a lot of empty seats (and empty sofas). If viewers thought last year’s awards ceremony – with just 23.6 million watching – was bad, they had better have a fainting couch ready for Sunday’s news, which revealed just 9.8 million viewers.

Indeed, the ratings’ 58% drop to single digits must have been a tough pill to swallow, seeing as just seven years ago, the awards ceremony was flying high with over 40 million viewers. This year’s drop in viewer numbers was difficult to explain outside Occam’s razor – i.e., the simplest explanation is usually the best. It’s not difficult to understand why the American public, after over a year of being treated like misbehaving children sent to bed without their dinner, has found better things to do than sit on the couch to be lectured by the Beautiful People™ on TV about saving carbon while they themselves fly around in private aircraft.

Very few people trying to scrape together enough couch-change to make ends meet were drawn to this year’s festival of celebrities rubbing their wealth in everyone else’s faces. It’s not like the average TV viewers ‘related’ much with their favorite celebrities ‘back in the day,’ of course, but the quiet disgust that has gradually emerged over the last few years, previously apolitical pop stars or actors suddenly pretending their politics run deep have turned themselves around as geniuses who pretend they can speak for some socioeconomic group or another – unless they’re marketing their movies to that group.

There is perhaps nothing more baffling than the bafflement a once-beloved celebrity’s fans exude when they ‘break character,’ revealing their real life to the audience, and are mocked off the screen. Sacha Baron Cohen, everyone is looking at you.

Everyone is looking at Sacha Baron Cohen.

And at his cousin Chuck Schumer.

What does that mean, “plant-based beer”?

Does he think beer is typically made from beef?

Or is he mocking Joe Biden and the global warming hoax?

Why does he have such tacky, cheap-looking furniture in his office? Is that a hotel room? Why is he watching the Oscars and drinking beer in his office? Is he going through a divorce?

Did Joe Biden wreck his marriage? Is that what he means by “thanks Joe Biden”? Is it like “thanks for nothing, you piece of shit, you ruined my life!”?

Why does everything always have to be so weird with these Jews?


A reader has pointed to the source of the “plant based beer” comment.

Obviously, and disgustingly, Schumer has hired some millennial to try to do memes on his Twitter account. But I’m pretty tapped in when it comes to news, and I was not aware of this meme.

It also remains true that drinking alone in that IKEA particleboard office is a bizarre look. The explanation is probably that the picture was taken by his social media person earlier, and setup to be posted during the Oscars.

Upon examination, we find that the image on the screen is actually a piece of Oscars promotional material.

This is meant to make the gargoyle-like “Hebrew Hammer” Schumer seem like a normal person, but it does the exact opposite, as every person who sees that image is going to think: “why on earth is this 70-year-old man drinking alone at his office on a Sunday night, hunched over in a wooden chair watching television?”
