Following the Oscars on Sunday, the acclaimed award show saw devastating ratings as everyday Americans refused to tune in to woke Hollywood patting themselves on the back.
One of the contributing factors to this rejection was host Jimmy Kimmel who had made a reputation for himself being a mouthpiece for the Democrat Party’s worst instincts.
As reported by Breitbart, the Oscars have seen declining rating numbers over the years. Back in 2013, the award show had 40.3 million viewers, 2014 had 43.7 million viewers, 2015 had 37.3 million, 2016 had 34.4 million, 2017 had 32.9 million, 2018 saw 26.5 million viewers, and 2019 saw 26.5 million.
Compared to these numbers, 2023’s 16 million was a shock to the system. While 2020, the year of Covid-19, saw 10.4 million viewers and 2021 saw only 16.6 million, this year’s abysmal showings showcased that even when the blockbuster ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ was nominated for Best Picture, audiences are still hesitant to tune in.
For the millions of Americans who didn’t tune in, here’s were some of the highlights.
Jimmy Kimmels Oscar’s WERE A TOTAL FAILURE 😂😂😂💪
Here’s a look at the ratings over the last decade:
• 2013: 40.3 million

Best Picture went to ‘Everywhere, Everything, All at Once’ with the film’s cast and crew sweeping the award show. In addition to the Best Picture award, Ke Huy Quan won best supporting actor, Michelle Yeoh won best actress in a leading role, and Jamie Lee Curtis won best supporting actress.
In addition to these awards, the movie also won best directing and film editing.
Other notable winners included those from the hit war film ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ which won best international feature film, best music, best production design, and best cinematography.
Meanwhile, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, which was nominated for five Oscars and which was the second highest-grossing movie of 2022, only won best sound.
It’s clear that woke Hollywood still hasn’t learned its lesson about what audiences actually want. Until they change their ways, the Oscars will never return to their previous rating numbers.
