Based on the preliminary ratings from Nielsen Media Research, the award goes to last night’s Oscar performance for the least-watched ceremony in the history of the Academy Awards. Even with the trotting out of tween fave Miley Cyrus (for those of you who wondered why in the heck she was there). After reading about the dismal ratings, I did a quick check-in with the Answers community to see what the level of interest was in
As expected, many people tuned in to see the fashion hits and misses. Another big topic was the music. Some wanted to know who the awesome 11-year-old singer was from the “Raise It Up” performance, while others were less enchanted with the song nominees altogether. Overall, it seemed too predictable with few surprises and not enough pizzazz. Considering the amount of talent gathered in one very large room, I think we were expecting a little more entertainment.
What do you think? Are we just experiencing award overload or does the Oscars show need a major makeover?
