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.

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.
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.
