  • 90th Academy Awards show speaks up yet keeps the smiles coming

"How can Hollywood stop itself from alienating its audience?"

"It's too bad", morning host Steve Doocy said.

"Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY", Trump tweeted, right after a tweet about nuclear talks with North Korea.

The ratings were so awful, in fact, that they may be the worst in modern television history, as they took a 17 percent plunge year-on-year. "Problem is, we don't have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!" he tweeted.

A record low 26.5 million people watched Sunday night's telecast, a almost 20 per cent drop versus past year.

The 90th Academy Awards on Sunday was the least watched in Oscars history with only 26.5 million viewers - a 19% drop from last year's ceremony.

Adweek noted that the 2018 Oscars "won't end up as the year's highest-rated entertainment telecast", since it has already been beaten out by the post-Super Bowl episode of the prime-time drama This Is Us. Actresses Salma Hayek, Ashley Judd and Annabella Sciorra introduced a short video which praised the trailblazers in Hollywood who have spoken out against sexual harassment and created diverse films produced by women and minority groups.

Fox's Tomi Lahren called the Oscars "sad" and dedicated to "self-obsession and blatant hypocrisy". "And I don't blame you", she said. And Jimmy Kimmel has offered an appropriate show of gratitude.

Meghan McCain, the conservative daughter of Sen. She has said she is ready to take on the coveted award show hosting spot after fans on social media - including Tyra Banks - suggested she host the next Oscars.

He said: "It's a great honour to be invited back for a second time".

His rise knocks Microsoft founder Bill Gates , whose estimated wealth is $US90bn this year, up from $US86bn, into second place. According to Daily News, Trump Tower, the President's NY home, lost an estimated $41 million in value a year ago .

"None other than President Trump called Get Out the best three-fourth of a movie he had seen this year", Kimmel quipped at the gala, where several celebrities took a stand for immigrants and "Dreamers" amid the ongoing immigration debate over a programme that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.
