9. OH, THE DRAMA! (14)
My favorite episode of the FX series, Feud: Bette and Joan, recreated one of the most outrageous moments in Oscar history. Joan Crawford raged when rival Bette Davis got a Best Actress nod for the psychological horror/thriller in which they co-starred. Slighted yet hell bent on sabotage, Crawford openly campaigned against Davis and lobbied one of the other nominees (on Broadway at the time) to let her accept the award on her behalf if she won. Well, that actress did win, and Crawford pulled off one helluva petty stunt. Name any one of the following:
SpoilerShow
  • 4 other Best Actress nominees, besides Davis
  • 5 films nominated for Best Actress
  • 2 stars of Feud: Bette and Joan
  • 3 films for which either star of Feud won an Oscar

Thanks for winning!

Sorry for confusing some of you on question 9. It was a tough question, so I wanted to give you options.

About 5 of you didn’t use your DROP. Shame!

Play my not-so-general knowledge quiz on the Alpaca Farm. Closing Tuesday (not today) at noon!

Well, if anything, this should lead me to brush up on movies and Oscars. I won't forget that Saving Private Ryan didn't win again.
