I guess you should have just written down "The Fondas", then you could have at least considered giving yourself credit. Too bad none of the players gave that response, so we could know for sure whether or not the judges would have allowed it. Lisa may be right that the "be careful" warning was to make sure the players gave full names, but if so, it clearly went over Drew's head, since he wrote down "The Coppolas". Surely there is some precedent for a clue of this nature, where a FJ asks for two people, and they share the same last name. Hopefully one of our Archive experts (seaborgium? cheezguyty?) can cite some examples of rulings one way or the other.dhkendall wrote:After Alex ruled all three of them wrong, and started talking about the projects that the brother and sister were nominated for, I started to feel good about myself, considering The Oscars is a notorious weak spot of mine. Jane Fonda! Yes! And ... *facepalm* dammit, *Peter* Fonda, not Henry!
Oh well, the fact that I came so close, and closer than the contestants, in a category I'm bad in, made up for it.
I first wrote down "Who are Warren Beatty and "...what the heck is his sister's name? Debbie Reynolds? That doesn't sound right, but nothing else was coming to me, so I had that name about 3/4 written down when the Fondas popped into my head, so with about 5 or 6 seconds left in the Think! music, I scratched out what I had and scribbled down "Peter + Jane Fonda", finishing just in the nick of time. It turns out that Debbie Reynolds was born just two years before Shirley MacLaine, so she was far from the worst guess I could have thrown out for Beatty's sis, especially considering I know absolutely nothing about her. (other than the fact that she is Carrie Fisher's mother, a fact that was eluding me during this particular moment.)
