The US live TV audience for the Oscars fell to an all-time low on Sunday.

The ABC Network, citing popular research group Nielsen, stated that roughly 23.6 million viewers tuned in to watch the awards ceremony.

The ratings fell sharply from last year, which has a viewership of 29.5 million people, amid an industry-wide decline in linear TV viewing.

South Korea’s Parasite made history, becoming the first non-English language film to win Best Picture since the awards began 92 years ago.

Renee Zellweger won Best Actress for playing Judy Garland in Judy. Joaquin Phoenix was named Best Actor for Joker.

Despite the ratings slump, the Oscars, which had no host for the second year running, remains the most-watched awards show.
