DEAR HOLLYWOOD: It’s Not Us, It’s You

The ratings for the 2018 academy awards are in and they are not good. In fact, they are the worst. The 2018 Oscars show was the lowest rated in history. The New York Times reported:

Oscars Ratings Hit Record Low

The doomsday ratings scenario has hit the Oscars.

A record low 26.5 million people watched Sunday night’s telecast, a nearly 20 percent drop versus last year.

It also represents a startling drop off: As recently as four years ago, the Academy Awards had an audience of 43.7 million viewers.

The previous record low was in 2008 when 32 million viewers watched a hastily organized ceremony that proceeded just days after the Writers Guild of America’s strike had ended.

Moving the ceremony up to 8 p.m. on Sunday on ABC — a half-hour earlier than its 8:30 p.m. slot — did little to aid the show’s rapidly declining audience.

Can you hear us now, Hollywood? You might think we didn’t watch because there is something wrong with us, but that’s not true. The problem is you.

You have spent every day since the 2016 election mocking half of the country, calling us racists, sexists and worse.

You lecture us about wanting to protect ourselves with guns while standing behind an army of armed guards.

You lecture us about sexual abuse and harassment – an issue you only became interested in last year – while harboring sexual abusers and pedophiles.

You applaud yourselves while demeaning the people you expect to buy tickets to your movies.

We’re done.

It’s not us, it’s you.
