Hollywood awards shows continue to plummet in ratings.
The over-the-top politicization of the shows has turned off many viewers.
But one stunning Oscars speech stood out among the “woke” nonsense.
With 23.6 million total viewers, the 2020 Academy Awards was the lowest rated show in history . . . until the 2021 show came along.
This year’s show drew only 9.85 million viewers, a 58% drop in viewership.
Not only are Hollywood celebrities “woke,” but so are all of the movies – this year’s Best Picture nominees included two separate biopics about Black Panther leaders, and an absurdist #MeToo revenge fantasy.
However, aside from the far-left preaching, entertainment mogul Tyler Perry had a gracious speech during the acceptance of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.
Perry called for an end to hate, and specifically mentioned hatred toward police officers.
“I refuse to hate someone because they are Mexican, or because they are Black, or white, or LGBTQ. I refuse to hate someone because they are a police officer. I refuse to hate someone because they are Asian. I would hope that we refuse hate.”

In this current political climate, it takes guts to speak out against hatred of the cops.
So much of the Left’s narrative revolves around demonization of the police.
The corporate-controlled press and entertainment media are pumping the narrative that rogue cops are everywhere, and they’re gunning down black people for sport.
It’s ridiculous, but that divisive rhetoric has dangerously gone mainstream, and it’s filtering down into elementary education.
Kudos to Perry for speaking out against the “woke” paranoia at a time when sober commentary is needed.
