Oscar ratings plunge to a record low

Oscar ratings plunge to a record low

If only he had been nominated for all of the movies that he was in over the previous year.

Moving to a more light-hearted topic Kimmel also took aim at the best picture fiasco of the 2017 ceremony, when Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty announced La La Land had won the award instead of the actual victor Moonlight. The Academy Awards are often the most-watched television program of the year after the Super Bowl, but this year's Winter Olympics opening ceremony from Pyeongchang reached 27.8 million.

"There were a lot of great nominees but Harvey deserved it the most. And the truth is, if we are successful here, if we can work together to stop sexual harassment in the workplace, if we can do that, women won't have to deal with harassment all the time at every other place they go".

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the gala - which aired live on ABC - for a second, consecutive year.

Viewership for the Oscars is driven by the box-office success of nominated films. Seacrest has denied the accusations against him.

At one point during the show, lead actress victor Frances McDormand finished an otherwise emotional tribute to the other female nominees with the term "inclusion rider", referring to a contractual clause that requires a specific level of diversity in the cast and crew of a project. 'You are live on the Oscars right now'.

That gives it a big edge in the advertising marketplace, as scripted programming is increasingly watched on a DVR, on demand or an online stream.

Christopher Nolan's World War II thriller "Dunkirk" also picked up three awards, but in the less glitzy technical categories, while several movies ended the evening with two trophies.

Coco was voted Best Animated Feature and won the Oscar for Best Original Song for "Remember Me". "That increases the value of it". "You are all extraordinary", the statuesque 58-year-old Janney, the overwhelming favorite, enthused at the podium.

"We all have stories to tell and projects we need financed", she said to enthusiastic applause.
