The greatest night for the cinema industry - Oscar Awards - might have been a hit in terms of celebrity attendance but it failed to earn big ratings in terms of viewership.
According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, ABC's broadcast recorded an all-time low as it plummeted by about 3 million viewers as compared to the previous year's low.
The over three-hour-long gala event had an average of about 23.6 million viewers and received a 5.3 rating among the viewers of 18-49 years of age.
The statistics remained quite far from the last year's award ceremony which had a viewership of 29.56 million and a rating of 7.7.
Ratings for the 2019 Oscar ceremony were below those for the previous four years since 2014.
