Hollywood insider says ‘vast swaths’ of Americans tune out of major awards shows due to political rants

Hollywood award shows are tanking in ratings, in large part because Americans don’t want to hear privileged Hollywood elites go on unhinged political rants, according to a report by Breitbart News.

The outlet reports an “anonymous producer told the New York Times that a minute-by-minute post-show ratings analysis indicated that ‘vast swaths’ of people turned off their televisions whenever celebrities started to opine on politics.”

The news comes as ABC prepares for this Sunday’s Oscar awards. The award program reportedly experienced a huge six million-viewership drop loss last year, despite more Americans at home due to pandemic restrictions.

The 2020 Academy Awards telecast drew 23.6 million viewers, a drop from 29.6 million in 2019.

Breitbart notes the Oscars drew as many as 46.3 million viewers in 2000.

The Oscars are not alone in rating drops among award shows. The 2021 Golden Globes noted only 6.9 million viewers, a 63 percent drop from 2020.

CNBC noted the Oscars had not tanked so low since the 2008 Hollywood writers’ strike. That year, the award show was condensed to press conference instead of a full award program.

The network added, “The ceremony drew a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, a drastic 68% drop from the prior year’s show, which previously held the record for the all-time lowest rating for that key demographic.”

The statistics may appear dire, but they are revealing. The same Americans who want to see Hollywood stars on television are the same people who do not want to hear political drama.

Hollywood stars should try creating some really good movies instead of talking politics. Most of the movies are bad and don’t make sense.

Why does Hollywood think they are so brilliant? The actors know how to read, yeah, a script and perform accordingly but to stuff their propaganda down our throats is down right irritating. I haven’t watched any award shows for years because the winners are decided by politics anyway. A lot of them need to take a long walk on a short pier.

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?


BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Members of the House

Members of the Senate



Please, don’t make an excuse not to make the calls, excuses as they say are like A-*****, we all got one!

Made that call and other calls to my reps, Senator. I was told because they are all democrats that they are voting yes on everything Nancy Pelosi puts out there. Doesn’t matter to them they will control us Republicans. So no excuses here. Just hate from my state democrats.

If I remember, the last Oscar show I saw was around 1960. That was fun and there was no snotty comments that hurt others…………and movies were great. Nowadays in the past 30 years, I have attended 3 movies and one of them was a waste of my money and my time…………….it was a worthless piece of nothing. I have come to despise the movie and TV dictators and I hope no decent person gives a hoot about them ….. too many of them are a waste of time and money.

When their ratings hit ZERO and their movies all fail, THEN maybe they will realize how unimportant they are.

People need to stop buying or watching their movies. If the money stops coming in then maybe just maybe they will get the message. But since most of them don’t have the brains to think for themselves. As long as john q public keeps supporting them they get richer and you get to put up with their hate of john q public

Who in their right mind wants to watch a bunch of actors congratulating actors for acting? I find this kind of
self-aggrandizing acts idiotic and stupid for others to watch, never have and never will take an actor seriously as long as they call themselves actors. Why should anyone be given awards for being the best liar? The best at fooling people that you are someone you are not. Acting and the whole entertainment industry would be shut down if there was truly an environmental cataclysm coming… Liberals do not even see how hypocritical it is to tell people that the world is going to end in 12 years but we can still have these award shows like they are important. Hollywood and filmmaking is the biggest waste of resources in the world. Today, nearly all actors are pretty much a waste of oxygen.

Since most of them don’t know what they are talking about in the first place, and since they seem to think that because we watch them in movies or show, that we really care what they think. Well, WE DO NOT GIVE A RATS PATOOTIE WHAT THEY THINK!! Most of them are idiots anyway.

We won’t watch when they start with the politics. Didn’t watch any movies this past year, don’t know who most of those movie people are. What little I saw I wouldn’t have gone to the weird movies. Not wasting my time and money on them.

I’m part of the group NOT watching ANY award shows and must admit I haven’t missed them. And, I haven’t missed going to the movies because of Covid. And, I don’t have any plans going back to the movies when I would feel safe. Different times bring different life styles and these communist movie stars are NOT part of my lifestyle any longer. They complain about what the conservatives like but they forget the conservatives also put money in their pockets which I will no longer do. Bye-Bye!!!

I haven’t been to a movie theater in over 40 years and the only shows I watch on TV is mostly rerun from before 2000! Life below Zero and In the heat of the night reruns and old westerns make up my movie viewing now days!

I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented for your post.
They’re really convincing and can definitely work.
Nonetheless, the posts are too short for novices.
May just you please lengthen them a little from next time?
