Hello and welcome to the Oscars Special Pointless results! It was an excellent turnout so thanks everyone for participating heart.gif These will start at 6PM today (Wednesday) and the more hype and responses, the quicker the answers are revealed heart.gif

Let's take a reminder of the questions:

Remember all these questions are about Oscars
1. Name an actress who has received 6 or more Oscar nominations.
2. Name a winner at the first Oscars (1929).
3. Name an actor or actress who has been nominated twice for playing the same character.
4. Name an Oscar host who has hosted the Oscars 3 or more times.
5. Name a best animated feature winner.
6. Name an original song that was nominated at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes this decade.
7. Name a shock best picture winner that won in this millennium.
*8. Name A Movie That You Think/Has Been Nominated For Best Picture in our Buzzjack Movie Awards 2016*
9. Name an actor that has won Best Actor under the age of 35 and also include what movie it was for.
10. Name a movie that was nominated for Best Picture in 2010 (So the movies released in 2009)

BONUS: 11. A bit less Oscar related, name an actor or actress that would draw me to watch a movie!


Please let me know if I've made any mistakes and hype for early evening later today *.*

Let's also take a look at some facts that will take place during the results:
- The results are going to be a bloodbath. There is only a massive 42 wrong answers across the questions and another 5 which are half wrong! And there is a wrong answer for every single question.
- We have trolls, we have people kind of trying to play clever but failing and we have people who are going to be kicking themselves at how they misread the question!
- The leaderboard is very close at the top of the bottom
- One question has a lot of answers for the same 'item', which question?
- Two questions have impacted the leaderboard heavily!
- Let's have fun *.*

Sorry at the delay, my friend is having a bit of a problem at the moment so struggling to find time! I can do a couple of the questions now at least and worst comes to worst I'll continue around 8/8:30!

Hype for 1st question heart.gif

1. Name an actress who has received 6 or more Oscar nominations.



Queens Kate and Meryl in the pic *.*
An easy question, probably the easiest to get a pointless on because I worded the question to say something I didn't mean! It was meant to be name a Lead Actress but I forgot the lead part! Well anyway many pointless for many great actresses and 3 legends: Kate, Bette and Meryl all picked up 1 point each! 3 wrong answers here though. Bre is trolling as Pixie Lott will obviously not get anywhere close to 1, Angelina Jolie is an incredible actress but she has only had 2 Oscar nominations and while Katherine Hepburn has received over 6 nominations, Audrey Hepburn has only received 5 and therefore is a wrong answer.

POINTLESS: 0: Greer Garson- Ultraviolence1989
0: Judi Dench- Regina
0: Jane Fonda- Richie
0: Maggie Smith- Burbe
0: Jessica Lange- Jonjo
0: Sissy Spacek- Acidburn
0: Deborah Kerr- Josh
0: Geraldine Page- Alex!
0: Ingrid Bergman- HarryEzra
0: Katherine Hepburn- Lotti
0: Vanessa Redgrave- Haus
0: Glenn Close- Mack

1: Kate Winslet- Jahq, Jade
1: Meryl Streep- Dobbo, NotFurlong
1: Bette Davis- Chez Wombat, Oliver

21: Angelina Jolie- Dan
21: Audrey Hepburn- Joe
21: Pixie Lott- Bre

2. Name a winner at the first Oscars (1929).



The 1st Academy Awards were held in 1929 and featured many categories that nowadays do not exist! However all the Pointless goes to categories still standing: Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress and of course Best Picture! Most people got low points with Seventh Heaven/Sunrise/Underworld all being popular choices and a clever answer from Jahq and Dan was unlucky to not score them a pointless as I didn't even notice Charlie had won an award when I wrote up the question! 2 wrongs answers here, we all know Madonna is old but not that old and we all know Morgan Freeman has been around for basically forever but still not that long!
Question 3 has 6 wrong answers, who's starting to fall!

POINTLESS: 0: Emil Jannings (Best Actor)- Ultraviolence1989
0: Benjamin Glazer (Best Writing, Adapted)- Jonjo
0: Janet Gaynor (Best Actress)- NotFurlong
0: Wings (Best Picture) - Mack

1: The Dove: William Cameron Menzies (Best Art)- Joe, Jade
1: Charlie Chapman (Honorary Award)- Jahq, Dan
1: Lewis Milestone (Best Director, Comedy)- HarryEzra, Lotti
2: Charles Rosher & Karl Struss- Sunrise (Academy Award for Best Cinematography)- Regina, Richie, Josh
2: Frank Borzage – Seventh Heaven for Best Director- Burbe, Alex!, Haus
2: Underworld – Ben Hecht (Best Writing, Original Screenplay)- Acidburn, Chez Wombat, Oliver

21: Morgan Freeman- Dobbo
21: Madonna- Bre

Wtf, did I defiantely put Audrey Hepburn for the first one? I seriously muddled up the questions if I did that, because she's not what I have down in my notes. drama.gif

3. Name an actor or actress who has been nominated twice for playing the same character.



5 possible answers I think and all 5 got answered more than once so no wrong answers here! Al Pacino got nominated twice for Godfather, Paul Newman I'm not too sure, Peter O'Toole for Henry II, Sylvester Stallone for Rocky (hopefully he'll win this year!) and the always great Cate Blanchett for her portrayal as Queen Elizabeth I (which is the only good thing about the movies, well the 2nd one as not seen the 1st I don't think). So of course we have some wrong answers, Hopkins has been nominated a few times and also the character Hannibal has been nominated a couple of times but Hopkins only got nommed once for his performance! Barry Fitzgerald and Humphrey Bogart were good guesses but incorrect, Bre continues his losing streak and Dan and Dobbo also get their 2nd question wrong tonight!

POINTLESS: NONE
1: Al Pacino (Godfather ½)- Joe, HarryEzra
1: Paul Newman- Acidburn, Oliver
2: Peter O’Toole (Henry II)- Burbe, Chez Wombat, Haus
2: Sylvester Stallone- Jonjo, Josh, Lotti
4: Cate Blanchett (Elizabeth I)- Ultraviolence1989, Jahq, Alex!, NotFurlong, Jade

21: Anthony Hopkins- Mack
21: Barry Fitzgerald- Regina
21: Humphery Bogart- Richie
21: Samuel L. Jackson- Dobbo
21: Daniel Radcliffe- Bre
21: Will Smith- Dan

4. Name an Oscar host who has hosted the Oscars 3 or more times.



Quite a few correct answers here and back to pointless for Jonjo and Josh! Bob Hope and Jerry Lewis scored a point while we had another 3 way tie for the top answer btetween Jack Lemmon who I'm pretty sure most of us thought would be really obscure, oops!, comedy great Billy Crystal who has hosted it many times before, most recently a couple of years ago, and Sister Act's Whoopi Goldberg who is incredible *.* Again we have wrong answers from Bre, Dan and Dobbo! If Steve Harvey hosted, he'd probably announce awards for the wrong ceremony after the Miss Universe slip-up and I'm surprised Ellen has only hosted it twice, I thought she'd hosted it more than that!

POINTLESS: 0: Steve Martin- Jonjo
0: Johnny Carlson- Josh

1: Bob Hope- Chez Wombat, Mack
1: Jerry Lewis- Lotti, Oliver
3: Jack Lemmon- Ultraviolence1989, Richie, Acidburn, Haus
3: Billy Crystal- Regina, Joe, Jahq, HarryEzra
3: Whoopi Goldberg- Burbe, Alex!, NotFurlong, Jade

21: Steve Harvey- Bre
21: Ellen DeGeneres- Dan
21: Jerry Springer- Dobbo
