Oscar Presentation Without Presenter is Better Viewed in the US
The presentation of the Oscars last Sunday was better viewed in the United States than last year’s. This year there was no presenter for the presentation.
This year, in the US, 29.6 million viewers watched the gala of the most important film awards, Variety reports Tuesday.
This amounts to an addition of 3.1 million viewers compared to last year, in which a view digit layer record was established.
The organiser of the film prizes had to put it without a presenter for the first time in over thirty years. Kevin Hart would talk the feast to each other. But after a few homophobic tweets of him had surfaced, the presenter’s organisation decided to abandon.
The organisation behind the Oscars had announced some time ago that it would take measures to prevent a new depth record. For example, the presentation had to be handled faster.
To achieve this, prizes would be awarded during the advertising breaks. However, this plan was rejected after actors had expressed strong criticism. To limit the duration of the presentation, it was finally decided not to hire a presenter at all.
