About

Join us for The Oscars and Chicago as we consider Hollywood's most prestigious awards and their unexpected connections to the Windy City.

We'll kick off this hour-long program by exploring the backstory of the Oscars and uncovering the sneaky reasons behind their creation.

Chicago, with its rich cultural tapestry, has a longstanding and vibrant link to this glitzy Los Angeles-based affair. With that in mind, we'll dive into tales of winners, nominees, and game-changers who hail from Chicago and its suburbs.

Finally, as we virtually tour Chicago's iconic Grant Park, we'll dish on a recent film nominated for Best Picture, bringing you closer to the magic of the Oscars and the allure of downtown Chicago.

So dust off that black dress or tuxedo, and pour yourself a glass of champagne! The Oscars and Chicago is about to begin.
