Hollywood used to capture Americans’ imaginations.
But the Golden Age of Hollywood is long gone.
And the story of how bad things are getting was written all over last nights’ ratings for the Oscars.
Many Americans are tired of the constant browbeating they receive from self-righteous Hollywood liberals.
When the Academy Awards chose Jimmy Kimmel as their host, they sent a not-so-subtle message to conservatives: tune out.
Last fall Kimmel was asked about losing conservative viewers of his late-night show as his opening monologues turned into emotional political rants.
The Daily Wire wrote at the time:
As for the conservatives tuning out, well, Kimmel claims he’d prefer everyone with a television watch his show, but, if you disagree with his political opinions, he probably doesn’t like you anyway, so feel free to flip the channel.
“If they’re so turned off by my opinion on health care and gun violence then, I don’t know, I probably wouldn’t want to have a conversation with them anyway,” he told CBS. “Not good riddance, but riddance.”
So how’s that relate to the Oscars?
Well, apparently, many conservative Americans chose to forego the ill-informed political opinions of Hollywoods’ elite and didn’t bother watching.
How bad was it?
The ratings for Sunday night’s telecast of the 90th annual Academy Awards collapsed by a whopping 16 percent, which would mean an all-time low, according to early estimates.
Variety reports that the “8 p.m.-11 p.m. portion of ABC’s telecast averaged an 18.9 household rating and 32 share in Nielsen’s metered market overnight ratings … That’s down about 16% from the 22.5/37 rating generated by the 2017 Oscars.”
According to Deadline, the “18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, below the previous low ratings point for the Oscars, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9).”
On top of insulting Trump voters, this Oscar telecast also promised to be a lecture in favor of gun control (by elitists protected by hundreds of armed guards) and against sexual harassment (by elitists who are either harassers or enablers).
Is this the writing on the wall for Hollywood liberals?
