Harry Truman
I've heard of Black Flag was as close as I got.
I needed more time on ASCAP as I play to have my response ready when Alex is finished reading. I was trying to recall the AS part to help trigger the rest and it did not work.

I guessed Alicia Vikander for Monday.

I watched Ex Machina and guessed she might have been nominated for that, while knowing that she won for something else. She's 30 now, so I might have also assumed she was a bit younger than she is.

Clammed on Kansas, no idea on the other extra clues.

I added Vikander to the mix, so you can vote again and check that box with the collection of actresses without messing up anything. I am curious to see if Ronan alone can beat the rest of group.

Ow.

Mon - Hathaway (but I was right about knowing it was the one who tripped coming up the stairs)
Tue - Nimitz (so I checked Navy guy, not president. Wouldn't making that box "I picked a Navy officer" better? Reagan wasn't in the Navy.)
Wed - Tolkein, but I was thinking JRR (so I didn't check the Christopher Tolkein box; I know he's still alive.) I read "famous son" figuratively.

For Home on the Range, I was flipping between NE and KS but stayed clam; if it was a DD, I'd've said NE.

Keira Knightley (also considered Portman and Swank), Teddy Roosevelt.
For some reason "Home on the Range" got stuck in my head about two months ago and that's when I learned it was Kansas' state song.

Mon: Pure, unadulterated dumb luck. Which I'll gladly accept. :lol:
Tues: Quickly narrowed it down to the USS Reagan or USS Bush - thought a moment and went with the right one.
Wed: Had everything right except getting a name. Probably karma for the get on Monday.
Thurs: Educated guess. I had the wrong years in my head for the airlift, but went with it anyway.
Fri: Not happening. Made sense after the reveal, but the right answer wasn't on my radar.

Zine: My TPH moment. The whole thing made no sense to me. Not just the selected question, but the whole category.
Home on the Range: Didn't know the answer and there were just too many possibilities to make a guess. Stayed clam.
Acronyms: I have had too many members of ASCAP as clients over the years to miss this one.

18 FJs in a row followed by 6 misses is unsettling, especially cause I blanked on a familiar name on Mon, and came a second too late to the response Wed... :cry:
I was sure I knew, then blundered into completely wrong names for ASCAP ...But I've long known what state Home on the Range is about...

M) I know one Millenial female actor's name (that's taken seriously). WAG that won.
T) A name I'd rather forget.
W) Wouldn't get this if spotted "Winnie the Pooh" guy.
Th) I've heard this feelgood story a few times.
F) After WAG of Rio Grande was able to get to the right place.

NOGO on the extra clues. Kansas was a surprise. If they get around to Missouri, it's the Missouri Waltz.

This is the first time since the week of November 5th that I didn't go 4/5.

Spoiled on a clue yet again, this time on Monday's clue. Thought "peace through strength" referred to Woodrow Wilson's policy of collective security, so I went straight to him. Went with Roald Dahl on Wednesday; Milne did enter my mind, but with only 2 or 3 seconds left.

I got a little lucky on Monday--I remember seeing JLaw in Winter's Bone, a movie that I happened to catch in a free campus flim festival. I'm not sure if I came up with any sort of guess on Tuesday.
