Opening Up the Oscars: The Awkward Politics of the Academy Awards

Even though the four lead actor awards were won by white actors, some results of the awards show demonstrated that Hollywood is taking baby steps to enter this new age. "How can Hollywood stop itself from alienating its audience?" Maybe people just aren't interested in TV anymore.

Jordan Peele won the Best Original Screenplay award for "Get Out".

"Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY", Kimmel responded to Trump's earlier tweet. It was the first sci-fi movie ever to win the award.

And President Trump is right (about the ratings part, at least).

Viewership for the 90th annual Academy Awards was at an all-time low following Sunday's broadcast, and the president took notice.

This year's Oscars averaged 26.5 million viewers (live+same day), down 19% from last year's 32.9 million, a nine-year low. "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight; invite us into your office in a couple days".

And there were the sly and not-so-sly digs at the Trump administration and its policies.

The victor of best original screenplay was "Call Me By Your Name" a attractive coming-of-age romance between a teenage boy and a graduate student in picturesque Italy.

"We need to set an example", Kimmel declared.

Fox's Tomi Lahren called the Oscars "sad" and dedicated to "self-obsession and blatant hypocrisy".

The low ratings can be chalked up to a few different factors. "And I don't blame you", she said. The host was Jimmy Kimmel, who started by talking about the sexual harassment scandals that have rocked Hollywood recently.

"Every awards show on television has seen erosion, and many are notching record lows in viewership", Deggans said.

West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Pardew calls for unity in relegation scrap
If you look at the league table, it would look daunting. "We won't give up the fight we will keep going until we get something". Pardew, however, will now be dreading a phone call from owner Guochuan Lai as his team moved a step closer to the drop.

Meghan McCain, the conservative daughter of Sen.

In Canada, CTV said the award show peaked with 5.6 million viewers when Allison Janney accepted her supporting actress award.

"It would just be nice if we could just take a beat on politics.it's so much all the time", she said.

Ratings for the Oscars have been better when the movies were bigger.

Leader of the Free World and Two-Time Emmy Loser Donald J. Trump woke up this morning and made a decision to taunt his former colleagues in Hollywood.
