Trump Says He's the Only Star We Have Left

Jon Hamm

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.

At last year's Oscars, host Jimmy Kimmel called out President Trump on several occasions, and even tweeted at him as if to draw him into a tweet war. ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel was the emcee of Sunday's telecast, his second consecutive year in the role. They ignored their own blatant hypocrisy, all the while congratulating themselves on being the culturally "woke" arbitrators of morality - a nauseating recipe for unwatchable TV. "How can Hollywood stop itself from alienating its audience?" "Problem is, we don't have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!" he tweeted.

Was Trump right that 2018 marked a low point for the Oscars?

It also tried to strike a balance between the acknowledgment of sexual harassment scandals that Hollywood has suffered from recently and providing an extensive look at the history of moviemaking to mark the Oscars' 90th birthday.

"The previous low-water mark for the Oscars came in 2008, when "No Country For Old Men" won best picture".

"I would totally do it if we get paid!" On Tuesday morning, our POTUS found the need to share his thoughts on the ceremony's low ratings, and didn't hold back on throwing some shade on the rest of Hollywood.

Microsoft teases new Windows 10 S 'mode' in 2019
Last month it was rumored that Windows 10 S was set to be replaced by a mode that can be set in other versions of Windows 10. MICROSOFT HAS confirmed rumours that its stripped-down UI will now be a "mode" rather than a separate operating system.

The 2018 Academy Awards was characterized by its diversity; the winners included a surreal love story, a Chilean drama and a violent cop drama, among others.

In Canada, CTV said the award show peaked with 5.6 million viewers when Allison Janney accepted her supporting actress award.

Another photographer who took Bryant's picture at about the same time did not recognize him as a victor at the ceremony, and began following him, police said.

Brian S. Brown, president of the socially conservative National Organization for Marriage, called the Oscars a "bizarre presentation" that made "people who buy movie tickets and finance the lavish lifestyles of the left's rich and pampered" feel marginalized.
