The Oscars sure were entertaining last night thanks to all the glamour, Chris Rock's HIGHlarious jokes, and of course Leonardo DiCaprio winning his golden statue!

Unfortunately for the star of The Revenant, not as many people watched his big win as the Oscars had an 8-year low in ratings!

Last night's ratings were 23.1/37 which is a 6% dip from last year's show that was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris which earned 24.6/39. NPH's show happened to be the third worst the award show has done in ratings since Rock's last time hosting in 2005.

The Hugh Jackman hosted 2009 show and Jon Stewart's 2008 were the only others rated lower.

Of course, there was that whole movement to boycott the Oscars due to its lack of diversity….

What do you think?? Did people skip out on the show because of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy? Or for another reason??
