Oscars Ratings On The Rise

Oscars Ratings On The Rise

Preliminary ratings show that the 2009 Oscars are up 6 percent over last year, which pulled in its smallest audience ever with 32 million viewers.

NY, LA and Chicago were the markets with the highest Oscars ratings. The always charming Hugh Jackman hosted the evening’s events, impressing the audience with his singing and dancing skills. He was accompanied on stage by Anne Hathaway in the opening number and later in the evening by Beyonce, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Dominic Cooper and Amanda Seyfried.

Watch the big Oscars performance: MUSICALS ARE BACK!

I enjoyed it very much for a change. Hugh Jackman was great. Never will see the big deal about Pitt and jolie. Josh Brolin and Diane Lane make a lovely looking couple. Nice to see Jennifer Aniston there, but don’t care for John Mayer all that much.

I normally don’t watch the Oscars, at all. I watched it for Vanessa, and I admit….I turned it off once their performance was done.

It also helped that Angie was there. I love these two women.

to be honest. i only watched for zac and vanessa. they did great. the whole thing was alright

PROBABLY THE BEST OSCARS I SEEN AS OF RECENT. EVEN WATCHED THE ENTIRE SHOW FROM BEGINNING TO END. HUGH JACKMAN SHOULD DO IT AGAIN NEXT YEAR. HE IS VERY CHARASMATIC && HOT OF COURSE.

Love it! Best presentation EVER!!!

I think it was great!
it was actually the first time I watched the oscars, but I really liked it.

it was very emotional and I enjoyed to see Jenn in front of Brangelina XD I thought it was funny

i agree. i only watched it because of Rob Pattinson & Zanessa but then I was like “hey this show is really good”. so i saw the whole show and i wasnt disappointed at all. Oscar is back in a better way than ever!!

Beyonce the lip synch drag queen.

Thanks to the Twilighters and younger demo that made the Oscar rise a teeny bit add the classy Hugh Jackman. At least his night was more interesting than boring Australia and flopped movie.

Last night, Kate was as beautiful as in The Reader: http://www.actressscene.com/2009/02/kate-winslet-in-reader.html

The Batman geeks cant take the glory because the People’s choice award even with the awards for The Dark Knight,Best picture,Ledger etc still had no improvement from the previous ratings so I would say the High School Musical and twilight crowd helped a lot.
Overall the award was so so but it was Hugh and his musical nos.that were memorable. The rest were boring and predictable.
I miss the old days were more music and Disney nos. were done now its all so timed and rushed.

I thought it was awesome. Hugh Jackman was amazing!! I thought the acceptance speaches from most all the winners were wonderful. LOVED Kate’s shout out to her dad to her dad and then he whistled, lol. And Sean Penn speach was very funny and heartfelt. Oh, and I have to say Tina Fey and Steve Martin were hilarious!!

Is it me or is Beyonce a clumsy dancer. When she doesn’t shake she doesn’t really know how to dance!!! She looked awful in that red outfit she has a humongous as# and humongous legs. I’m tired of seeing her everywhere, she needs to stay away from hollywood she cannot act. I’m afraid they are going to give her more musicals she can sing awright but acting phewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, she can stink up a movie house.

I have to be honest and say I watched because of J-P. And I wish they would have gotten someone else beside Beyonce to sing and dance with Hugh.

It was great. Hugh Jackman did a great job! Lots of fun and I loved the previous winners all presenting as a group – that was a great idea.
Anne Hathaway is an amazing singer! Who knew.

Some of it great, some of it cringe worthy. Opening number, FOLDING CHAIRS?!? Not cute, just lame. Loved the multiple former winners naming the nominees. Even liked the Song Oscar montage although I thought I wouldn’t. But what do they do next year when there’s no Bollywood numbers? HATED THE DANCE NUMBER. Do these people even watch modern films? Give us some rap or blues or even jazz, but not top hats and canes. COULD NOT SEE THE STAGE SCREEN WHEN THEY WERE HONORING THOSE WHO DIED. WTF was that? Rating: 3-1/2 stars out of 5.

I thought they were extra good this year. Loved the stage—that Swarovsky crystal curtain was gorgeous, lovely, really unique. They should ask to keep it permanently. Really beautiful!
Hugh Jackman was elegant, talented, really into the audience enjoying themselves. I thought he was the quintessential host, best yet!
I loved the the opening presentation for best supporting actress. I got tears in my eyes, and I noticed the audience was totally affected by the ladies, too. I loved it, and the best actress, best actor (Deniro was hilarious) and supporting actor. The Academy should do this type of presentation every year. I learned a lot about the character the actors were portraying, brought it more alive to me, actually got a lot of insight.
Frankly, I enjoyed it more this year than ever before…Hugh Jackman was the best…Beyonce singing was great…Queen Latifah…so happy for Bollywood…glad Hollywood musicals are back….we need the happiness factor!

Beyonce go away and get knocked up or something!! She is not the only performer in the world. Sick of seeing her!!!

dia from mirza @ 02/23/2009 at 1:58 pm

“Carla” the lip singing drag queen !! And” Laila” the seeker sh*t of the world !!!! Beyonce you the best !! Cheez everyone!!

I cant wait for Transformers and New Moon. New Moon is filming soon.

They were phenom this year. Everything from real entertainment, to the way nominees were introduced. It was personal and drew in the viewer so we could experience it as well.
they need to bring Hugh in again, and never forget to bring a broadway or a movie producer in to help plan it. i am so tired of comedy routines. What a breath of fresh air.

I honestly didn’t like Queen Lati’s voice, it was rather weak.

The best Oscar.
It’s was Just perfect.
Congrats ugh!

it was perfect !!!

thought it was one of their best…too long with the top four awards (it got a little much at the end of a long program)…didn’t like the second number with Beyonce et al..it was a mess to me! It sounded disjointed….loved the opening and loved the intimate type setting…everyone seemed very emotional and sincere and happy to be alive – that was nice. The Indian song segment (with Wall-E’s song thrown in) was refreshing and fun.
