This Year's Oscars Least-Watched in Past Twenty Years

Looks like seeing Javier Bardem in a tux wasn't reason enough for many
Americans to tune into the Oscars this year. The Academy Awards telecast on ABC
was the least watched in over twenty years. The decline in viewship might have
had something to do with the fact that many A-list celebrities were notably
absent from the show—no Salma & Francois or Brangelina
on the red carpet this year—and were replaced by the likes of Miley Cyrus
and The Rock. Wow. When even Hollywood's biggest night can't draw out the
top tier celebs, what does that say about the movie business in general?
