88th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Sure Leonardo DiCaprio won his little golden man…but who even SAW it?

Last night’s ratings were 23.1/37 which is a 6% dip from last year’s show that was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris which earned 24.6/39. NPH‘s show happened to be the third worst the award show has done in ratings since Rock’s last time hosting in 2005. Hugh Jackman‘s Oscars in 2009 and Jon Stewart‘s 2008 were the only others rated lower, which means that even being positive, it’s still the lowest rating in 8 years.

It felt like the whole boycott the Oscars kinda died out (or was addressed) but then again, maybe not?!

Did chose not to watchbecause of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy? Or for another reason? Maybe THIS is the push the academy needed to have more diverse nominees…
