Oscar least watched in 34 years

This year’s Academy Awards, hosted by Jon Stewart, scored the lowest ratings ever by attracting only 32 million viewers, and averaging only a 10.7 rating in adults 18-49. The telecast was down 20 percent from last year.

Meanwhile, a native Chicagoan has snared an Oscar for the second straight year. Congratulations to Diablo Cody from southwest suburban Lemont (and no, she does not look like Amy Winehouse), who took home the Oscar for Best Screenplay for the movie Juno. Last year, Chicago native Jennifer Hudson took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dreamgirls.

Our sports teams may suck – but we’re winning at the Oscars! All right, you all can wake up now…
