The former President of the United States insists the lack of 'great host' made the Academy Awards such a snooze and urges the organizers not to be 'so politically correct.'

AceShowbiz - Former U.S. leader Donald Trump has attacked the brains behind the Oscars, insisting political correctness and the lack of a "great host" is killing the awards show.

Sunday night's (25Apr21) hybrid event was not a ratings hit and many viewers found it a snooze as presenters and winners dragged out presentations and speeches, and Trump was among those watching and shaking his head.

In an emailed statement to media outlets on Tuesday, the former president wrote, "What used to be called The Academy Awards, and now is called the Oscars - a far less important and elegant name - had the lowest Television Ratings in recorded history, even much lower than last year, which set another record low. If they keep with the current ridiculous formula, it will only get worse - if that's possible."

"Go back 15 years, look at the formula they then used, change the name back to THE ACADEMY AWARDS, don't be so politically correct and boring, and do it right. ALSO, BRING BACK A GREAT HOST. These television people spend all their time thinking about how to promote the Democrat Party, which is destroying our Country, and cancel Conservatives and Republicans. That formula certainly hasn't worked very well for The Academy!"

Trump wasn't the only Republican who found the Oscars dull - Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't a fan either.

"I only watched one-third because it was so boring," he said during an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". "I basically just turned it off. I couldn’t watch it anymore because there was so much talent there on the stage, but it was so boring. How could they with all this talent make it so boring?"
