There’s A Clear Reason The Oscars Keep Failing

Either Hollywood elites are in denial about the reason that, year after year, awards show ratings keep hitting record lows. Or they just don’t care. One thing is certain: people are tuning out in big numbers.

The Oscars night of narcissism kicked off Sunday with singer, Janelle Monae opening the show by declaring herself a ‘proud’, ‘black queer artist telling stories.’ The awards show also included shout outs to communism, feminism, and Black History Month, as well as the typical Republican bashing and cracks about climate change deniers.

Hmm. I wonder why Americans are fed up with Hollywood.

When Jennifer Lopez was told that her Super Bowl halftime sex show offended millions of families, she said ‘that’s just silly.’ It’s pretty much the same reaction we get from celebrities and the most powerful people in entertainment when they deny a connection between them spewing their extreme liberal views and rapidly declining TV ratings.

Twenty years ago, the Oscars had 44.6 million viewers. Sunday night, it fell to an embarrassing low of 23.6 million. Still way too many people watching if you ask me. By comparison, the decline for this year’s Golden Globes includes a 10 percent drop in the 18-49 y/o demographic, while the Grammys dropped 6 percent in average viewers.

The Emmy Awards last September saw a staggering decline in ratings; a 32 percent fall in viewers. This year’s Oscars lasted more than three and a half hours and suffered a 20 percent drop to a new record low.

Part of the reason could be millions of Americans haven’t seen or heard about many of the nominated movies, and people don’t go to the theatre as much anymore. Then there’s the obvious Hollywood hypocrisy and being lectured by award winners.

Brad Pitt won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, and explained how he thought President Trump’s impeachment trial should have gone.

"They told me I only had 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week. I’m thinking maybe Quentin (Tarantino) does a movie about it and in the end the adults do the right thing,"
Adults. So, Republicans and those who agree with them are children who just don’t know any better. Got it. Pitt is one of the many who flies around the world in private jets and then blame average, hard-working Americans for polluting the planet.

Marxism also made an appearance at the Oscars. Since this is the year of the feminist and, as Sigourney Weaver said, “all women are superheroes,” in the spirit of diversity, I’m going to score a few points now by quoting a female winner.

The best documentary award went to Obama-endorsed American Factory  and co-director Julia Reichert , who quoted, ready… The Communist Manifesto, and said “we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite.”

More people are working than ever before and unemployment is at record lows. What does she mean? Is this a call to take down America? I remember hearing that from union leaders campaigning to elect Barack Obama twelve years ago. Expect more radicals to be emboldened, especially with Democrat Socialist, Bernie Sanders being one of the top 2020 candidates.

Next, before quoting the pro-cow speech of the night from vegan of the year, it was unclear why the Oscars failed to mention actor Luke Perry during the 2020 segment, “In Memoriam.” The montage snubbed actor, Luke Perry, who suffered a stroke and died last year. Perry was best known for his role on Beverly Hills 90210 in the 1990s.

Finally, as if we need to demonstrate how out of touch wealthy elites in Hollywood are, Joaquin Phoenix accepted the Best Actor award for Joker, and here’s part of what he said:

"I’ve been thinking a lot about some of the distressing issues that we are facing collectively. At times, we feel or are made to feel that we champion different causes but for me I see commonality. ‘Whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re talking about the fight against injustice."
We should all be against injustice – in the truest meaning of the word, but many times, injustice is redefined by those accusing others of being unjust in some way.

It’s easy to pick on rich people whose lives revolve around themselves and those who serve their needs. But Mr. Phoenix said these issues are “distressing.” Why the fight for ‘equality’ when every human being was created equal by God and has value?

It’s not equal rights they demand, it’s special rights and you know it. Those gender or queer rights will then logically infringe on the rights of those who believe the Bible is true and want to live according to their faith. Christianity is simply in the way of many of these agendas so it’s no wonder they look down at us with disdain.

Whether you acknowledge it or not, sin is the biggest problem human beings have on this earth. All the rest is about money, power, control, and influence.

The truth is that God is just, His coming judgment will be swift, and we need to pay for our sins. The good news is Jesus stepped into human history and paid the price for all of us, making a way for us to be forgiven and saved.

Whether you’re in Hollywood, small town USA, or anywhere else in the world, it’s a universal offer: repent and trust in Jesus Christ because He is the only answer and the only way. Abundant life doesn’t come from winning an Oscar, it comes from believing in the one who gave His life for us and was raised from the dead.

That’s a God worth living for!
