According to Variety, the show saw a decrease in views as much as 6% down from last year’s show ratings. The total numbers of views are still set to be released, but as of now the show only brought in 34 million viewers. That is still a colossal number for most tv programs, but for the Oscars it’s a bit of a dip considering it’s one of the most watched events next to the Superbowl.

Did #Oscarssowhite have an effect on the Academy’s low ratings? After all, many celebrities voiced their decision to boycott the Oscars after it’s controversial all white nomination cast.
