Academy Award Show Viewing Dips


Academy Awards show viewings down in the wake of Oscars boycott...

Last month actress Jada Pinkett-Smith called for a boycott of this years Academy Awards show after minority actors were shut out for the second year in a row [click here if you missed that].

So did the boycott work?

Depends on how you look at it.

According to reports this year's Academy Awards Show saw their lowest ratings in eight years, but still managed to pull in more than 34 million viewers!

So was the boycott a success or nah?

The real reason the rating were down #1 Chris Rock. Chris is not funny he's corny and lame as shit. Chris is a no talent fuck. Next year they should get that coon Kevin Fart to host. The rating will really be in the toilet.

Kevin Hart isn't any better. Chris sucks

Mitt Romney managed to pull in 47% of the voting population. Did he win or nah? I for one am thankful Jada wasn't afraid to speak out. Good for her on sparking the debate and possibly bringing about change...

Next year they should hire Trevor Noah.

Next year if they want to have an all white event they should have a white host as well.

The reason why Oscar ratings were down is because viewership has been on a decline for the past eight years. It would have dipped had not Chris Rock hosted the show. All award shows are declining in viewership because people are realizing that it's the usual suspects that always win. It's the same sh*t different year.

Exactly. All award shows have declined because it's the same people/shit every year.

Yep,the boycott worked!!!! White people saw so blacks on that show they didn't watch it.
The same thing that will happen to Will Smith's next movie.

You won't see that shit at the Oscars again.

@10:59 No, the Oscars have been on an INCLINE since 2008. This year they dropped loooowwww (but not as bad as 2008).

LET ME SUMMON TO GIVE A/F, Because the only times I watched this shit, was when blacks were poised to win PERIOD! Which is once every 3/4 years. They got butt hurt because they got called out on the carpet. I honestly believe the numbers are even lower. Because we know whitey don't want people thinking black people have any power of course now would they?
