Default The Oscars

Tonight's Oscar presentation will have no host and my interest is minimal this year. Johnny Carson hosted the 1982 Oscars and this clip of best song nominee makes me nostalgic for the big productions that used to be standard fare. Enjoy.

You couldn't pay me enough to watch the Oscars.

The Nielsen ratings for the Oscars have dropped over the last several years. I believe that the humor at the expense of many of our views as a country has caused the falling interest.

Nothing worth watching or reading about.
The event has deteriorated to nothing more than self appointed political/hate diarrhea dispenser contest.

Total waste of time to watch. I'll pass.

I will tape it to double-check anything mentioned by friends and family on Facebook but do not really enjoy watching any award shows.

But will probably not watch much of the recording unless there is something interesting in the 2-24-2019 Oscars.

Watch every year, kinda of a holiday in our house. The rest of you enjoy reruns or Netflix.
