The Daily Mail reported that last night’s Academy Awards show has been dubbed the “wokest ever”:
Film fans have blasted this year’s Oscars ceremony as the ‘wokest ever’ after a string of virtue-signalling speeches by stars – before Anthony Hopkins was attacked for winning the best actor award above Chadwick Boseman.
Award host Regina King had kicked off the night by hailing the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, director Travon Free showed off a jacket emblazoned with the named of black people killed by police on the red carpet and Mia Neal then spoke about ‘breaking the glass ceiling’ for trans and minority ethnic people in her acceptance speech for best hair and makeup.
And the woke lectures are certainly reflected in the ratings:
Oscars hits an all-time LOW: Average of 9.85million viewers tuned in to Academy Awards – down 58% on last year https://t.co/igGYlNEGq3

BREAKING: Oscars ratings crash to an all-time low, down a staggering 58% on last year’s Awards (which was also an all-time low.) As I feared, the woke brigade may have now destroyed the biggest, glitziest event in showbusiness.

The 93rd Academy Awards tried to cover for a lost year in film with a lot of intrigue, but none of that could save the Oscars from turning in the lowest-rated telecast in the show's history.

The TV ratings for the Oscars hit another all-time record low Sunday night, and are down more than 58% from the previous record low in 2020.
People have quit on award shows. We're tired of being lectured my millionaires. We'll stick to college football and loving America.
