Every year the ratings are worse than ever. Who is still watching?

Black Panther, blackklansman, vice, and the favorite were all really awesome, worthy movies. Way better than stuff like American Sniper, The Green Berets, The man who would be king, sudden impact, police academy, or the french connection. I totally agree with the nominations.

Actually, apparently Black Panther is the 3rd highest grossing domestic movie of all time (next to Avatar and SW: TFA), so I can see how it was nominated.

EDIT: Added "domestic" and changed "Titanic" to "The Force Awakens".

Popularity has actually been a negative to the Academy in the past. They've typically chosen high-brow shit that strokes their ego, not stuff the folks enjoy.

Very true. However, it was a high profile "black" movie that was 3rd highest grossing domestically. Had they not nominated it, there would have been massive backlash.

I originally indicated that the nomination would be questioned. I don't question it any longer. They had no choice.

Apparently about 10 - 20% fewer people year-over-year for the last 4 years. After the low ratings recorded in 2008 at 32 million (which is way higher than I would have guessed) they hit that low number again in 2017 and then plummeted to 26.5 million in 2018.

Most in the media attribute 2018's disaster to the lack of having any well known movies for best picture, among other things.

They must have recovered a bit between 2009 and 2014 but then they totally dropped the ball again in 2015, which was the first year of "Oscars so White."

So 2018, the least watched Oscars of the 21st century was a 20% decline from 2017 which was the 3rd least watched.
2017 was a 4% decline from 2016,
2016 was an 8% decline from 2015.

But those are full decline numbers. Another important factor is the portion of those drops that are part of the "crucial" 18 - 49 y/o age group. The drop in ratings from that group seemed to trend between 10 - 15% over the 4 year of the drop.

We will see if, without controversy and with a big tent pole movie holding up the Best Picture category, this year will bring back the mojo. However, despite having a big movie that happened to feature a bunch of Black people we still have a serious lack of other minorities and females without any representation in the nominations. Do you think they are going to be silenced because there are a few movies with black people in the Best Picture category?

#OscarsSoMale must be made real!

The left: Let's politicize everything! We're so woke
The left as well: People who don't pay cinema pricing to watch our liberal propaganda are all racist. MAGA HATS ARE THE NEW WHITE HOOD!

I think part of the reason people don't watch is nobody wants to hear all the political bullshit and SJW nonsense.

If I want to find a good movie to watch, I'll check the Academy Award winners up to the 70s and watch that...or most awards since and NOT watch that.

Holy shit, most of the people here just wake up outraged and let it all go downhill from there. We never saw a news article we couldn't build up a huge head of outrage steam over. Seriously, go smoke a blunt and get laid. Who am I kidding? Go slam back a six pack and jerk off.

Black Panther as best movie... oh dear.

I thought it was crap, but tastes differ. However I was quite appalled how racist that movie appeared to me. While everyone seems to praise it for "black culture", I found it so full of cliches and stereotypes that actually I thought it was plain insulting.

We thought it was a decent film and we enjoyed it, but best picture? Seriously? It's not even in the Top 10 films I watched last year and I watched a LOT of movies.
