Catastrophic statistics show that this year only 9.85 million viewers tuned in to the most important event in the American film industry. This represents a drop close to 60% compared to the 2020 figures.

In a statement issued by the 45th US President’s office, Donald Trump complained that the show lost its appeal to viewers because organizers have implemented a “ridiculous formula” that will only cause viewership to drop further.

Trump said:

“What used to be called The Academy Awards, and is now 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.

“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.”

Trump, who ran a hit reality TV show before entering the White House, stated that organizers should jog their memories to identify “the formula they used” about 15 years ago, and they also need to “bring back a great host “to change the audience ratings for the show.

“If they keep up with the current ridiculous formula, it will only get worse – If that’s possible.

Mr. Trump claims that those behind the Oscars “spend all their time thinking about how to promote the Democrat Party, which is destroying our country”.

It followed the 93rd annual award ceremony reportedly recording its lowest ever ratings, with only 9.85 million viewers.

The figure marks a massive drop of 58.3 percent from last year’s ceremony, which had around 23.6 million viewers.

US Republicans and Conservatives have claimed the low ratings are due to political statements and speeches, whereas others suggest low figures are due to less people watching movies due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While serving as President, Mr Trump annually criticised the award show and mocked the South Korean film Parasite winning best picture last year.

Speaking at a MAGA rally, he asked:

“What the hell was that all about?

“We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them best movie of the year.

“Was it good? I don’t know.”

In 2019, Mr Trump claimed the awards were on hard times because audiences got tired of people “making fools of themselves” on stage by disrespecting the people who won the 2016 election.

In 2018, he tweeted:

“Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY”.
