And the Award Goes to ..

Hi everyone,

With the Oscars this past Sunday I thought it would be interesting to see what the TV ratings were for such a major awards show. It turns out that no matter how big the event – streaming seems to be taking over the TV industry and its nothing different from what we have discussed before in this class.

This article highlights how even ratings for the Grammys dropped 24% this past year, the Super Bowl hit a 7-year low and the Oscars  had a rating drop of 16% from the 22.4 rating produced by last year’s telecast – this is a drop of 26.5 million viewers.


I thought it would also be interesting to highlight the amount of Netflix films that were nominated , a total of 8, this again displays streaming and the Internet’s dominance – which of course was already proven with Manchester by the Sea, Amazon’s movie win last year.
