Historic Oscars draws smallest-ever audience

This year's historic Oscars were watched by the award show's smallest ever audience, with just 23.6 million viewers tuning in to ABC's domestic television broadcast.    

The glitzy show in Hollywood on Feb. 9 night saw "Parasite" become the first-ever non-English-language film to scoop best picture, the movie industry's biggest prize.    

‘1917’ scoops top Hollywood director prize for Mendes

Hollywood's directors handed World War I thriller "1917" their top annual prize on Jan. 25, one of the final major award shows that typically spells success at next month's Oscars.

The win makes British auteur Sam Mendes hot favorite for the best director Oscar -- the Directors Guild of America Awards have correctly predicted the victor the past six years running.
