The TV broadcast of the Oscars ceremony has hit the anti-record for the number of views - 23.6 million people this year, which is 20% less than last year, New York Times reported referring to the Nielsen data.
Views have been falling since 2014, when 12 Years a Slave was recognized as the best film. And it continued for four years, until the audience of the award increased to 29.6 million people in 2019.
Experts immediately cite several possible reasons for the decrease in the audience’s interest in the Oscars. One of them is the choice for nominees. According to the Time's survey in 2018, almost two-thirds of respondents watch at best two out of eight-ten movies that claim to be awarded.
By the way, Grammy TV broadcast also set an anti-record two weeks ago, which showed the worst result in 12 years and lost 5% of the audience.
