The Oscars were a ratings flop…kind of like the nominated movies were.

No, it’s not the only person who watched the Oscars (we couldn’t fine a picture of them), it’s co-winner for best song, Marketa Irglova.

Not too many people watched the Oscars Sunday night, in fact, they were the lowest rated in history.  The show itself was boring, host John Stewart had a few good moments, but the nominees were people most viewers didn’t know, from movies no one saw.  In fact, of all the nominees, on Juno has grossed more than $65 million at the box office.

This isn’t to say that the Oscars should become a popularity contest, we already have the Blockbuster Awards for that, but the academy should stop being so snobby as to think the only worthy movies produced are boring.  The comedies have long been the redheaded step children that get ignored while stuffy British actors and actresses walk away with statues.

If drama is so difficult, why do comedic actors do it, but dramatic actors suck in comedies?
