Yep.
From the preliminary numbers, this could be the least-watched Oscars ever.

( I have only seen 1 in 30 years or more, and not by choice. )

Yep, no reason to watch at all.

Reruns of Mash or anything for that matter. I didn't help the 20%. I never watch it.
They love them self's. Oscars mean nothing. And fortunately they don't rerun it.

thats pretty much it... we are all getting tired of the political statements and cringe worthy moments these overpaid court jesters spew on stage when all they should be doing is saying thank you to their fellow actors for swapping their spouses around. its gotten worse and worse every year, and when the host starts acting a fool... the "actors" follow suit. Soon it turns into a me too event where they all circle jerk each other into a stupor about how politically important they think they are...

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Nail on the head. I haven't watched them since I was a kid....it was classy then as I remember. Most Hollywood elitist's barely have a HS Diploma...and there is nothing wrong with that....but want to preach like they are next to GOD because they are wealthy and famous. Don't give a crap about your views....just like watching movies. STFU and act. THAT is what you get paid to do. You want to go on a political tirade, then do it 'off the clock' like the rest of us do. But as with most (not all) wealthy people, they are completely out of touch with most of America. It will never change.

the rich has "shown off" to much over the last few years, it's sickening to think how much they really make off of use, look at those TV shows where they show off their 5, 10, 30 Million dollar houses and their 20, 30 and 50 million dollar yachts,
they are just too vain for my liking

Only in Hollywood can they dump on Weinstein (and let's be honest, he needed to be dumped on) and every other man who might have looked at a women's boob's for more than a nanosecond, but CELEBRATE and give Kobe Bryant a big time award - ya the same Kobe Bryant that was CHARGED with sexual assault, admitted to being an adulterer and then paid off the accuser to keep her quiet.

Never watched it, never will. Bunch of self appointed egotistical jerks patting each other on their backs. Wait, never watched it so how do I know ?

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

You probably saw some of it on a talk show, or crap news.

A high school drop out putz who makes a living pretending to be somebody else says Blah blahh blahhhh... and some snarky equally useless talking head putz says "Yea! what she said! Take that Mr President!".

The time I saw an awards show was less snarky, but still pathetic. Costume designers would say, " I designed that hat to save the Grey Crested Pigeons of San Francisco from the ravages of Global warming. " An endless parade of Gawd awful self important pretentious garbage like that. I never understood why anyone would watch any of it.

20% drop this year, some folks are coming to their senses.

It seems to me that awards show like the Oscars, Emmeys, Golden Globe, etc are unimaginably arrogant and made for people too stupid to know what they are watching. What I mean by that is, aren't they self fulfilling? Is seems to me that these awards are broadcasts to award entertainers and produced by... well, entertainment providers. If that isn't a circular argument I don't know what is.

I suppose that the ASME would have an equally large event to give themselves awards if the the American Society of Mechanical Engineers had the same access to entertainment as... entertainers. Can you imagine the size of the event if the AMA put it on? If the Academy of Model Aeronautics, American Motorcycle Association or American Medical Association had 100% access to broadcast itself, I suppose their award ceremonies would rival the Oscars.

The arrogance of saying your going to put on an event to award the people of the entertainment industry, and because you are the entertainment industry it'll be a 4 hour prime time event for all to enjoy, well, it is more than I can stand.

My life is too short for people with such egos.

My biggest issue with the Oscars this year is, how on earth the Shape of Water was awarded best film?

PS. Dont like it? dont watch it, as simple as that. You know is a big platform for liberals. I dont like soccer so I dont watch it. I hear the world cup is big deal and contracts for good players are insane, still not watching the crap. On the other hand, I guess I like reading posts from a bunch of old farts bitching about liberals, cause I keep coming back -not that there is anything wrong with that . Different strokes for different folks I guess.

"self awareness" LOL funny how the guy in the video was talking about self awareness as he was putting down the entire human population and most of humanity's history,

let me tell you about self awareness, most people (including me at times) don't truly have it, they may think they do, but they don't, cause if they did , (well, you know), they would not do some of the things they do,, I can show you some true hard core Covert Narcissists

Regardless of who made the video (other monkeys), the vid is pretty cool Thanks Pete!). Damn! I am infected with progressive/libertarian ideas. Let me go back and start watching Ted's latest interview ...... no, wait!

Why was there no 2018 Oscar for the Best Groper?

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
