i'm sorry, but I'm not getting question 9 at all. Are you looking for eg. any one best actress nominee, or a list of four best actress nominees? And is this question implied to be pinned to a particular year?
I'm looking for ONE of 14 possible answers, so give me any of the other 4 best actress nominees that year (besides Bette Davis), any of the 5 films represented in that category, either star of Feud, or any one of the 3 films for which those 2 women won Oscars. Or DROP the question ;)

1. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? (11)
Finding someone to replace the host who resigned in scandal was just one of the many setbacks that plagued this year’s awards. Leading up to the ceremony, the Academy suffered major blowback for trying to tweak the format of the program in an attempt to pull in more viewers. Ultimately, the Academy reversed course and the show came off just fine without a host.

Name any one of the following
SpoilerShow
  • Host who resigned (but refused to apologize) for a series of homophobic tweets, including one gem about breaking a dollhouse over his son’s head
  • Exciting new category announced for 2020 (that was later scrapped)
  • 4 categories the Academy wanted to cut from the telecast to save time (just kidding!)
  • 4 acting winners from 2018, one of whom lamented on social media that she was “heartbroken” the Academy didn’t invite her to present at this year’s ceremony (the Academy relented and reverted to the tradition of having past winners present the acting categories)
  • 2019 winner of Best Picture (this one didn't go over that well either)

Allison Janney

Yeah, no kidding. No, really. You'll see.

I have seen every episode of Mom and was ready to make Janney my answer as one of my playing patterns is to go for people and things I like. It was recalling enough mentions of people here liking The West Wing that made me pick one of the proposed cut categories instead. Two points thrown away.

I went Jennifer Lawrence since I like The Hunger Games.

was busy after the midnight hour due to watching lifetime movies on my dvr....i actually did come on the board yesterday with the intention of asking when the reveal was going to be, but i saw in your disclaimer that it said entries would be accepted through the end of monday and not a set time in the morning or afternoon...was disappointed by that disclaimer

Q2 was a SHEEP mind****. Any one of those (except Lupita's brother) could have been a sheep. I went through multiple scenarios, did some calculations on a chalkboard, and gave up and went DROP.
