According to Fox News, Arnold on Monday night told Kimmel that he watched about 33 percent of the service “because it was so boring.”
“I basically just turned it off and I just couldn’t watch it anymore because there was so much talent there on the stage that it was so boring – how could you make this, with all this talent, so boring?” the actor revealed.
He also made a suggestion on how to make the 94th Academy Award interesting he joked, “I think next time, they should take it to Muscle Beach and have the Oscars on Muscle Beach.” For the unversed, Muscle Beach is located in Santa Monica, California and is known for popularising bodybuilding, physical fitness, acrobatics, gymnastics and more.
