Ratings: Fox’s Animated Reruns Break Broadcast Tie (Way) Behind Academy Awards

24 minutes ago

The Oscars dominated Sunday night, obviously — but we’re still a few hours away of knowing for sure where the awards show will end up historically. The below fast national Nielsen numbers for ABC’s primetime should be considered quite unstable, due to the nature of the live event. The earlier metered market ratings are actually more accurate due to time zone adjustments — read those here. And around 3 p.m. Et/noon Pt we’ll have an accurate total viewer count for the Oscars and its pre-shows. All indications point to the overall eyeball tally being down in the mid-high single digits, »

Oscars Flub: Was the Academy’s New Envelope Design Partly to Blame? (Photos)

28 minutes ago

One possible explanation for the backstage confusion that led to the epic screw-up of the Best Picture envelopes at Sunday’s Academy Awards: the new design for the envelopes themselves. The dark red envelope opened by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, from which they announced the wrong Best Picture winner, was a new envelope design for the show, TheWrap has learned. Invitation designer Marc Friedland and his company, Couture Communications, had designed the previous high-contrast gold envelopes for the last six Oscar ceremonies, going back to 2011. The Academy’s deal with Friedland did not continue or renew for 2017. The reason for the change was unclear. »

The Oscars and PwC Post-Envelope Flub: Can This Marriage Be Saved?

55 minutes ago

The Academy’s longtime accounting firm has apologized for the envelope mixup that plunged the end of the 89th Academy Awards into chaos, but it may take more than a two-paragraph apology to repair the relationship between PwC and the Academy. On the biggest of stages, working for the client of 83 years that gets the firm formerly known as PricewaterhouseCoopers more publicity than anything else it does, the company made two huge errors that damaged the credibility of the Academy and the Oscars. First, one of the company’s two Oscars balloting leaders gave the wrong envelope to Warren Beatty, »

La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday morning to explain his role in the snafu at the end of Sunday’s Academy Awards. “People needed clarity in that moment,” he said.

1 hour ago

John Oliver did a big takeout on Obamacare in this week’s “Last Week Tonight,” more specifically focusing on the Republicans’ seeming lack of a convincing plan to replace it. Oliver started off by saying that the Gop has been railing against the law for eight years, playing a clip of one Congressman calling it the worst piece of legislation in American history. “Good news Fugitive Slave Act, you’re officially off the hook,” Oliver joked. Oliver then dove into the talking points that Republicans will be using to pitch the closest thing they have to a plan, including refundable tax credits. »

2 hours ago

The Blaze’s Tomi Lahren and Doc Thompson mocked the Academy Awards with the liberal-bashing “Snowflake Awards” on Sunday night, honoring Michael Moore and Meryl Streep, among other Hollywood elite. “Snowflake” is a derogatory term that conservatives use to describe liberals that has gained popularity since Donald Trump won the presidential election, sparking liberal outrage. Moore picked up the award for “the best hypocrite,” but he was unable to accept the award in person because “sadly, it is Spam night at all nine of his homes,” so a custodian accepted the award in his absence.

Another Oscar Screw-Up: ‘In Memoriam’ Segment Showed Still-Living Producer Jan Chapman

7 hours ago

If you thought the “Moonlight”/”La La Land” envelope fiasco was the Oscars’ only glaring mistake, think again. The “In Memoriam” segment of Sunday’s show included a tribute to costume designer and four-time nominee Janet Patterson — but ran a photo of the very-much-still-alive Australian producer Jan Chapman by mistake. The two women worked together on Jane Campion’s 1994 film “The Piano,” for which they both received Oscar nominations, and Chapman’s image does appear in some photo databases under Patterson’s name.
