Last Sunday, (April 24), the national broadcast of the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony aired on television. What seemed to be an amazing night for all the winners, turned into a rating disaster for the 2021 Oscars.
According to Hot new Hip Hop, it was reported that approximately 9.85 million people watched the star-studded show—a 58 percent drop from last year.
apparently, Trump issued a press released after the numbers were released.
“What used to be called The Academy Awards , and now is called the ‘Oscars’ —a far less important and elegant name—had the lowest Television Ratings in recorded history, even much lower than last year, which set another record low,” reads the statement. For the record, the ceremony is still officially referred to as The Academy Awards.
“If they keep with the current ridiculous formula, it will only get worse—if that’s possible,” Trump added. “Go back 15 years, look at the formula they then used, change the name back to THE ACADEMY AWARDS, don’t be so politically correct and boring, and do it right. ALSO, BRING BACK A GREAT HOST. These television people spend all their time thinking about how to promote the Democrat Party, which is destroying our Country, and cancel Conservatives and Republicans. That formula certainly hasn’t worked very well for The Academy!”
The Academy has yet to respond to Trump’s comments.
