The Oscars versus the Super Bowl

The Oscars versus the Super Bowl Two of television’s most beloved annual events are the Super Bowl and the Oscars. But how does one event, which culminates the football season, stack up against the other, which celebrates excellence in film? Both events came from (relatively) humble roots. Super Bowl one, held in 1967, had a ticket price of $10 and an attendance of about 61, 946. The first Oscars, held in 1929, had a ticket price of $5 and was attended by 250 people. (If you’re curious about who won these inaugural events, the Green Bay Packers won the first Super Bowl while the silent film “Wings” won the first Best Picture statuette).

Compare those modest figures to the 2010 numbers and you might be shocked: the Super Bowl was the most watched event in television history, with nearly 111 million viewers. The Oscar ceremony for 2010 was also a great draw, attracting 41.3 million viewers.
