The decline in awards show viewers continues..

The Grammys, like many other popular television award shows, has seen its rating steadily decline in recent years.

However, after Will Smith slapped the hell out of Chris Rock at the Oscars over a week ago, I really thought this might turn the tide for award shows in general, that have hit rock bottom in ratings in recent years.

Nope, I was wrong.

According to Deadline, the Grammy’s matched last year’s all-time low in ratings, with their live broadcast on CBS, and their livestream on Paramount+ delivering a total of only 8.93 million viewers, only slightly better than last year, which saw a total of 8.8 million, the least amount of viewers in Grammy Awards history.

In comparison, 2020’s show saw 18.9 million viewers, and 2019’s saw 19.9 million.

Even though this year’s Grammy Awards brought in top-tier talent, with the likes of Justin Bieber, BTS, Lil Nas X, Lady Gaga, Olivia Rodrigo, and Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood and more, they still couldn’t get the ratings back up to par after a dismal 2021.

The Oscars, Critics Choice Awards, and SAG awards have not yet reached their pre-pandemic numbers, but have seen a minimal rise in viewership since 2021.

I mean, I’ll just say it… if Will Smith doesn’t slap Chris Rock at the Oscars, I think 2022 goes all-time low. After the week-long media firestorm the Oscars created, you have to imagine a lot of people tuned in hoping to see some kind of similar fireworks.

Either way, it doesn’t bode well for the awards shows in general.

But hey, at least Chris Stapleton killed it.

Miranda Lambert Skips Grammys To Make Surprise Appearance At Her Nashville Bar, Casa Rosa

Miranda Lambert was noticeably absent from the Grammy Awards last night.

Mainly, her presence was missed because she wasn’t there with her Marfa Tapes trio counterparts Jon Randall and Jack Ingram, as they were nominated for Best Country Album (which Chris Stapleton ultimately took home for Starting Over).

Miranda was also nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance with Elle King for “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” which ultimately went to Brothers Osborne for “Younger Me”.

And while she was unable to make the show in Las Vegas this year (the home of her upcoming residency), she did make it out to her bar in Nashville, Casa Rosa, to play her Grammy-nominated song “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” for unsuspecting fans, which was pretty badass of her to do on such a big night in her career:

Miranda is also gearing up to release her 8th solo studio album, Palomino, at the end of this month on April 29th.

Taylor Swift’s rep responds to reports the singer has the worst private jet carbon emissions



A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has responded to a report that named the singer as the celebrity with the worst private jet CO2 emissions. 

Yesterday, a report released by Yard claimed the American singer was the biggest CO2 polluter of the year so far, having flown in her private jet 170 times since January and totalling 8,294.54 tonnes of CO2.

However, Swift’s spokesperson told Buzzfeed News the statistics are inaccurate.

For context, the report claims the average person produces just seven tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

Taylor Swift speaks onstage during the 36th Annual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on October 30, 2021 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Swift’s representative said only some of the 170 flights can be attributed to the singer: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”

Regardless, it is clear Swift’s jet is racking up significant amounts of carbon emissions due to its inefficient use.

According to the Yard report, her average flight time is just 80 minutes, and her jet’s shortest recorded flight flew between Missouri and Nashville for just 36 minutes.

Celebrities react to Roe v. Wade

Other significant celebrity polluters include boxer and domestic violence perpetrator Floyd Mayweather, whose shortest flight was just 10 minutes long but emitted one ton of carbon; Kim Kardashian, who has emitted 609 times more carbon than the average person; and director Steven Spielberg, who took an 18-minute flight between Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a route which, when taken by train, takes only an hour. 

The subject of celebrity carbon emissions has blown up ever since Kylie Jenner shared an out-of-touch photo of her and partner Travis Scott posing in front of their private jets with the caption, “you wanna take mine or yours?”

In the midst of the backlash, many began diving deeper into Jenner’s private jet use by examining the Celebrity Jets Twitter account, which records celebrity private jet trips.

Many were horrified she was regularly taking flights as short as 12 minutes and reprimanded her for “her absolute disregard for the planet”.

Many found it hypocritical that ordinary people were being asked by big companies to reduce their car trips and use paper straws when celebrities are constantly leaving huge carbon footprints with frivolous trips in their private jets.

Despite the wave of criticism, celebrities have continued to take private flights between short distances.

How to Make Sense of a Very Unpredictable Fall Movie Season




All of a sudden, the fall movie season looks very busy. This week brought two big festival announcements loaded with major films to come: First came Venice, with a lineup that includes everything from Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” to “Bardo”; it was followed by TIFF, where Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” will premiere alongside Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking,” among many others. Meanwhile, Telluride continues to shroud its selections in secret, but the latest lineups help us get a sense of what to expect there as well.

In this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson dig through both lineups to get a sense for which films could impact the coming awards season and why it’s almost certain to be an unpredictable ride. They also address the return of competitiveness between festivals that seemed to subside earlier in the pandemic, and touch on the recent changes to the Oscar submission rules in France.

Watch the full episode above or listen it below.
