Hollywood continues to not understand the American people and it’s paying the price.
Celebrities gathered to celebrate themselves and how fantastic they are at the 89th annual Academy Awards but America didn’t care.
The awards show suffered its lowest ratings since 2008, pulling in a 22.4 rating overnight rating. Lower than 2016’s 23.4 overnight rating, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
In the weeks and months leading to the awards, Hollywood’s elite gave strong signals that this awards show was going to be its most political ever.
And, the same way they didn’t get a feel for what the American people wanted during the election, they’ve learned no lessons.
Besides mistakenly giving the “Best Picture” award to the wrong movie in perhaps the most embarrassing moment in Academy Awards history, the show was full of anti-Trump sentiment, starting with lame one-liners, and a ridiculous tweet, from host Jimmy Kimmel.
Supporters of President Donald Trump gleefully took credit for the low ratings.
Oscars were at an all-time in low ratings because they were boycotted #BoycottOSCARS
