Over 90% of us were watching the Oscar last night, the majority of us were at home (42%) or at a party or Oscar event (28%) or even the host of the event (7%). Only 14% decided to check in periodically and 7% were not going to watch.
There certainly was a different vibe this year and overall seemed to be received well. I was thrilled only 1 time did the music swell someone out of a speech (where there were 3 winners). Hugh Jackman was a great host but other than the musical numbers it felt like it ran without a host. My only big beef was that the 'In Memory' montage the camera was swerving all over the place on the montage. It's a montage - let the images speak for themselves and keep the camera static.
42% - Watching at Home
28% - At an Oscar Party/Event
14% - Checking in Periodically
7% - Hosting an Oscar Party/Event
7% - I'm Not Watching the Oscars
Thanks for voting!
