Megyn Kelly mocked the poor viewership of the Oscars awards with a scathing tweet Monday.
Kelly shared a story from Variety headlined “TV Ratings: Oscars Plummet to Record Low, Down 58% Compared to Last Year.”
She then asked “How’s all that incessant, insufferable woke, depressing lecturing via film, interviews, social media & at the actual, awful awards show going, Hollywood?”

Reaction to Kelly’s tweet was mixed.
Some of the responses include:
“All plastic and fake smiles!”
“It was because there were hardly any well known releases because theaters were closed but nice try”
“Why do find so much pleasure in berating and diminishing others? Is this behavior learned from your parents or is this independently acquired ?”
“Did you ever think the studios held off their top movies this year cause theaters weren’t open fully? Try using common sense before pushing your narrative.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter “the 93rd Academy Awards drew 9.85 million viewers and a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 on Sunday. That’s a steep drop from from last year’s 23.64 million viewers and 5.3 in the key ad demographic — both of which were the previous all-time lows.”
