Oscar Night!

Last week I talked about how much I was looking forward to watching the Oscar broadcast. Well, it certainly was an interesting broadcast.

Nielsen reported that this year’s broadcast had 34.4 million viewers, which declined by about 8 percent from last year’s telecast. This was the lowest-rated Oscars in eight years, according to Nielsen, and the third-lowest since Nielsen began tracking viewership in the mid-1970s.

Did you watch the broadcast?

You may remember that we were running an Oscar promotion, where we asked you to select who you thought would win in several categories. (FYI: We’ll be awarding points to those who participated in the next day or two.) But I wanted to reveal how you, our panelists, voted for each category. Check it out! (Winners are in bold.)
