Declining Ratings and Political Backlash
Left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the Oscar Awards for the fourth time, but the big question is: Will anyone be watching? The show's ratings have been on a steady decline in recent years, and many believe it's because people are tired of being lectured about politics by wealthy celebrities living in a bubble.
Jimmy Kimmel's Return
Emmy Award winner Jimmy Kimmel will be taking the stage as the host of the 2024 Oscars ceremony. This will be his fourth time hosting the prestigious event, having previously led the telecasts in 2017, 2018, and 2023. Kimmel will join the ranks of other four-time hosts such as Whoopi Goldberg and Jack Lemmon, with only Johnny Carson, Billy Crystal, and Bob Hope hosting more times.
Reaction and Controversy
News of Kimmel's return as host has sparked mixed reactions. Many are skeptical about his ability to deliver a funny and entertaining show, citing his tendency to make tired and unfunny anti-Trump jokes. Social media users have expressed their disappointment and predict that Kimmel's return will only further contribute to the declining Oscar ratings.
However, the Academy is thrilled to have Kimmel back, along with executive producer Molly McNearney, who will be serving in that role for the second consecutive year. They believe that Kimmel and his team's creativity and love for movies will result in a dynamic and entertaining show for the global audience.
Will Anyone Be Watching?
The real question remains: Will anyone be tuning in to watch the Oscars this year? With declining ratings and a growing backlash against Hollywood's political messaging, it's uncertain if the show can capture the attention of the American public. Many individuals have already voiced their plans to have other activities on the night of the Oscars, suggesting that the majority of the country may have moved on from the once highly-anticipated event.
