And I still can't believe they gave it to Paltrow in 1998.

the noms for best actress in 98 were: Gwyneth Paltrow – Shakespeare in Love as Viola De Lessepsdouble-dagger Cate Blanchett – Elizabeth as Queen Elizabeth I of England Fernanda Montenegro – Central Station as Isadora "Dora" Teixeira Meryl Streep – One True Thing as Kate Gulden Emily Watson – Hilary and Jackie as Jacqueline du Pré not a strong group

Cate Blanchett was good, but Paltrow was fine, too. and she was naked more. Plus she inspired Matt Stone's dress in later years.

I didn't realize "most naked" was criteria for voting. Perhaps they should make a separate category for that one, although Kate Winslet would probably win every year. (Regardless, The Reader is one of my favorite movies, along with Sense and Sensibility, one of the ones in which she remained fully clothed.)

Can we *really* not reference something that was said, prominently, on a prime-time network televsion program (the Oscars)? My quiz based on it was buried, my reference to that quiz here was censored. C'mon..

I also think awarding Best Picture to Shakespeare In Love instead of Saving Private Ryan is one of the academy's more egregious misfires. That same year, they also didn't even nominate Jim Carrey for his performance in the Truman Show, which is borderline criminal. Carrey got snubbed again the next year when they ignored his fantastic performance as Andy Kaufman in Man On the Moon. The winners in those years (Roberto Benignini and Kevin Spacey, respectively) were very deserving, but it's nuts that Carrey didn't get nominated either time. Snubbing Ben Affleck's directorial work in Argo was also ridiculous.

Completely agree. And Jim Carrey has had a surprising number of great performances without any proper recognition, Eternal Sunshine bla bla... being one of my favorites

I really loved Carrey in the Truman Show, though I think the common opinion amongst Oscar voters was that he was still over-acting.

And I just saw Shirley Booth in "Come Back Little Sheba"--a revelation for those of us who only knew her from the sitcom "Hazel."

Oh, the Oscars rarely get it right. Everyone knows that. I.e. no best director Oscars for Wells, Tarantino, Scott, Kubrick or Hitchcock.

Why not? Scott's made some good movies. Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, American Gangster, and The Martian all come to mind.

It makes you someone who's spent way too much time memorizing useless trivia. I'm one of those too, but not for this particular list. I got nearly every one going back to 1965 (which predates my birth by nearly a decade) and a scattered few recognizable names in the right hand column, but I don't really care who won best actress for a movie made in the 1930's that I don't even want to see. I've tried watching really old movies, but if I'm watching something made prior to 1950, chances are I'll be asleep before the end of the first act.

Old movies are like new movies - a few great ones well worth seeing, too many that are a waste of time...but still my favorite way to waste time.

Usually, the ceremony's year is tied to the year the films came out, not the year the ceremony is held. That is, it's not recorded that Cate Blanchett won the 2014 Best Actress; she won the 2013 Best Actress, as the ceremony was honoring movies from 2013. I suppose it makes no difference for this quiz because it's consistent throughout, but for future trivia endeavors, the award is tied to the year its film was released, which is always the calendar year before the award is given.

Great quiz, but it's a little too precise on spelling. Spelled her name McLaine and had Streisand with two s's and it didn't give it to me. Thanks!
