In the wake of the Oscars Sunday night, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has a grim prediction for the movie business: it will go extinct.
Reflecting on Sunday night’s Academy Awards during his radio show, Limbaugh claimed the landscape for watching movies is changing due to advancements in technology and the way people consume entertainment.

“Whatever happened to the music business, the same thing is on its way to happening to Hollywood and all about people being able to watch what they want to watch when without having to go to theaters and be willing to pay for it and so forth,” Limbaugh said Monday.
“Everybody in Hollywood is trying to hold on to this old business model where theaters are the primary distribution vehicle,” he added. “That’s done and over with, just that nobody knows it yet.”
Limbaugh also mentioned the disproportionate amount of “leftists” among the Hollywood elite. He pointed out their reputation was now solely intertwined with their political beliefs and that ordinary people were getting tired of it.
“They’re in some trouble. I think they’ve also got trouble, folks, because of who they are, because of their being leftists,” Limbaugh contended.
The conservative figurehead also mentioned the onstage blunder that occurred while the award for best picture was being given out.
“So that’s how it happens last night. What an ironic turn of events from the people telling us how to live and how to feel and how to think and who should win and who shouldn’t be elected, and telling us that there’s never any fraud in elections. And then they got tripped up by their own system,” Limbaugh said.
Despite the mishap, the Academy Awards was not without its usual political overtones. Some of the winners used their acceptance speeches to take subtle jabs at the president’s policy plans.
