Maybe to an all-time low, early ratings show

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

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

The early ratings for ABC's telecast of the 90th Oscars are down from a year ago and may be an all-time audience low. On Sunday night, the Oscars only managed to rake in 26.5 million viewers, which is 5.5 million fewer than the previous year's telecast.

Trump hit back instantly and described the award-winning actress as a "Hillary lover" and said he was "not surprised" he'd be the subject of anger and the butt of jokes by "liberal movie people". They ignored their own blatant hypocrisy, all the while congratulating themselves on being the culturally "woke" arbitrators of morality - a nauseating recipe for unwatchable TV. "Because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed". "How can Hollywood stop itself from alienating its audience?"

"Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY", Trump tweeted, right after a tweet about nuclear talks with North Korea.

The president took to Twitter on Tuesday morning (March 6) to blast the "stars" at the event and claim that he's the only star left, though he says he's just kidding.

The 2018 Oscars had record low viewership on Sunday.

There was the montage of women and minority filmmakers reflecting on diversity in film, which was introduced by three women who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse: Salma Hayek Pinault, Annabella Sciorra and Ashley Judd.

Still, Deggans added that movie grosses aren't the only factor to blame for low viewership. "I thought it wasn't going to work", Get Out director and screenwriter Jordan Peele said. The host was Jimmy Kimmel, who started by talking about the sexual harassment scandals that have rocked Hollywood recently. She has said she is ready to take on the coveted award show hosting spot after fans on social media - including Tyra Banks - suggested she host the next Oscars.

McDormand, he said, rambled "incoherently" and looked "homeless".

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel picked up the president's tweet and responded in the same manner Trump did. Thousands were old enough to survive outside the womb. "Such an incredible, brutal shame".
