The Oscars are the most famous awards in the film industry and, also, the most treasured in the world. This ceremony symbolizes the glamor that characterizes Hollywood; American actors, directors and producers (Not only their work, but also their way of life, looks and personal relationships) generally this generates fascination in the general public.
This ceremony is one of the most watched television events in the whole world. However, the rate of this show is going down. COVID-19, unknown movies, racial issues, there are many reasons why they are losing more and more audience every year.
