Council of Vienna (I knew what and where it was, but couldn't come up with the right name); no guess (and no chance because the title was completely unfamiliar to me).
Not sure I've ever found Waldo or not.

Instaget. Also precalled during the music that someone would guess Berlin for the other one. They didn’t. (Yes, I know that’s totally the wrong place for Berlin but if you’re not that good at German geography it’s not a horrible guess.). I said Berlin, but that was playing off the Clue of the Day, ...

Judges: Fines instead of bail for the 8th Amendment clue? They were obviously going for bail because of the mention of getting out of jail, but the amendment does prohibit excessive fines as well.

I thought IPhone was the very obvious answer, and the easiest FJ so far this week. I do wonder if we benefit from some recent 10th anniversary publicity that might not have been around when this was filmed.
Yeah, with the hubbub over the X and the 10th anniversary, this was an instaguess for me.

Isn't the show's website known to spoil results "indirectly" (they don't announce the winner but if you add 1 + 1 you know the results).
I remember one tournament where the results for quarterfinal games marked who would get wild card berths before the week was completed.

Lost out on the coin flip between Elizabeth and Mary.
Elizabeth never married, so by process of elimination...
I wish I'd stopped there. But I figured that was too easy, and the category said British monarchs, which would include Scottish monarchs, so I said Mary, Queen of Scots. Ah well.

"Women in IT awards" should have been the tease-out. Oh well.
Also, in the Bond books/movies, M is the leader of MI6, so it would be an unusual statement to make about yourself.

Have not seen any of the movies.
Didn't get Sopwith Camel.
