Skip ! Story from TV Shows. The very first Oscars were held on May 16, They were only 15 minutes long, watched by only people, and hosted by screenwriters Douglas Fairbanks and William C. Since then, a lot has changed. The ceremony is now broadcast on television, stretches nearly four hours long, and has a different host every year — sorry, a different male host. For all the change the Oscars have gone through in the past almost-century, that's one habit they just can't quite kick save for a few exceptions.
Bob Hope hosted a record 18 ceremonies, with Billy Crystal coming in second at nine. When put in context with the rest of Hollywood, of course, this doesn't stand out. The Golden Globes, the Emmys, and all the late-night shows are also dominated by male hosts. But after so many years, this homogeneity doesn't seem to be doing award shows any favors. The big events that actors and creators gear up for year after year have slowly dwindled when it comes to their audience sizes.
While the Screen Actors Guild Awards stayed consistent with their Sunday ratings they had a brief stint airing on Saturdays, it's a whole thing and the Grammys were pretty on par with the year before, the Emmys, the Golden Globes, and the Oscars didn't fare as well. The Stephen Colbert-hosted Emmys narrowly avoided a new low, instead tying with 's s. The Oscars Best Picture viral gaff, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, still didn't stop the telecast from hitting a nine-year low Women who can host Not even the buzz around MeToo and Time's Up could save the Golden Globes, hosted by Seth Meyers, which also dipped in ratings from the year before.
Here is an idea for those in the Academy trying to figure out how to give their babies a ratings boost: have women host! The of women who have hosted the big award shows — without a man as co-host — is shockingly low. We saw Anne Hathaway on stage with James Franco at the Oscars, and Jane Fonda hosted in '86 alongside Alan Alda and Robin Williams, but rarely are prominent women in Hollywood trusted to go it alone, which is made even more baffling by the fact that it could be the answer to this awards show ratings slump.
When Ellen DeGeneres hosted the Oscars, she brought with her a year high that attracted 43 million viewersbeating out Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs" fiasco which, admittedly, still fared well in ratings. But even when DeGeneres isn't smashing ratings, she remains a safe bet for both the Oscars and the Emmys, which both had strong ratings when she hosted them in andrespectively. Even the shows that weren't smash hits were still, you know, good. While Jane Lynch's Emmys saw a drop in ratingsshe held onto the coveted 18 to 49 demographic, besting Jimmy Fallon's ratings in the same demo.
Of course, there are exceptions to this. Whoopi Goldberg the only woman of color to host an awards show solo hosted the Oscars in '93, '96, '99, and '02, and each time ratings took a small dip from the year before. But this isn't necessarily an anomaly, at least Women who can host the Oscars are concerned.
Recent repeat male hosts include Billy Crystal, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and Steve Martin, and with the exception of Crystal, who must possess some kind of magic, their ratings have both dropped and risen without much fanfare. This fluctuation hasn't once put their gender on the chopping block. We can wait with baited breath to see if there's a spike in ratings from last year, but the truth is a woman shouldn't have to smash ratings to be given a chance, because that certainly hasn't stopped the men — and they know it. He did pass the mic off to the women in a recreation of his popular late night segment "Jokes Seth Can't Tell," but some of the best moments of the night happened when a woman was front and center, like Natalie Portman calling out the lack of women nominated for Best Director, and Oprah's unforgettable acceptance speech.
Women talked, and people listenedwith both of these moments captivating the internet almost immediately. The men, however, still managed to dominate the stage without saying much of anything at all.
In the wake of MeToo, Time's Up, the lack of women in the directors chair, the lack of women in the writer's chair — do I need to keep going? Women need more representation, and their voices need to be heard. Putting them front and center at a highly visible event like an award show would move the conversation in a meaningful direction. What a better place to start then on stage when the whole world is watching? The new HBO Max iteration of Gossip Girl, one that substitutes influencers for socialites and pop culture insults for traditional snobbery, has been slowly.
