Hello all! Welcome to the start of Buzzjack's 10th Anniversary Celebrations!!! cheer.gif

We're starting off with a round of Pointless. Before we go on, imma need you to go ahead and make sure you've got a google account. You'll need one of those for all three Lounge Mod events and for the BJSC event too.

So the aim of the game is to score as few points as is physically possible. You get a point if someone else answered the same as you so you need to find a unique answer. The more people pick your answer the higher your score will be. If you answer incorrectly then I'm afraid that's a 100 point score for you sad.gif

To the questions!

01 - Leonardo Di Caprio won an oscar on his 6th nomination. Name one of the films he was previously nominated for.
02 - Name a UK top 3 hit from 2006
03 - Name a US TV show that premiered in 2006
04 - Buzzjack has been around for a decade, name a portable music device that pre-dates the site.
05 - A decade is a long time. In the space of a decade, the 1960's, much of the British Empire obtained independence. Name one of these nations
06 - Name a song with an unbroken UK top 40 chart run of at least 15 weeks
07 - Name an artist who has scored their debut UK hit (UK top 40 single or album) in 2016
08 - Name a British football club who have won a major tournament since 2006, and name the tournament. (Major = Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA and Europa Leagues. Scottish league is not a major tournament Lee)
09 - In honour of the Pastry Forum (rip) name a finalist of the Great British Bake Off.
10 - Name a band that has scored a UK top 40 hit and has subsequently broken up since 2006
11 - Name a host of the UK Chart show since 2006
12 - Over a decade, 2004-2013, the EU almost doubled in size. Name one of the new member states.
13 - A film that has won Best Picture since 2006
14 - Artist who has performed at the Superbowl since 2006
15 - Name someone who has been nominated for Best Actor/Actress at the Emmy awards (TV and Movie)

The important link is this one: http://goo.gl/forms/Lov1dujg0B

Click that link, log in with your google account and let us know your answers!

You have a full week to vote so get your votes to me - via the google form - by the end of the day on the 11th. Results will follow on the 12th and 13th.

Good luck. Get those vouchers kids!

I see this one is different as a wrong answer is a fixed 100 points (as opposed to last year's quizzes which a wrong answer returned a score equal to the number of participants minus 1 iirc?)

exciting dance.gif good luck to all and WD to the winners cheer.gif

I don't really think there's any needed.

The Emmy awards are a US award show. They give out best actor/actress awards in a couple of categories in both tv and movies. You need to name one of them. To be more precise would be to literally give the answers away. It's an easy shot at a pointless answer.

oh right, I was looking at it on Wiki and wasn't sure which of the best actor/actress categories you were trying to reference. tongue.gif

What counts as a GBBO finalist? Someone in the top 4 or someone who made it to the main show?

10 - If they broke up after 2006 but then got back together, do they count?

Silas I've sent you a PM with an answer for question 15 cause I realised I missed that one out when I sent you the form and it won't let me edit it like it does in BJSC. Is that okay?

Sorry, but I've never known the Emmys to award for film? Am I missing something? I thought The Emmys were for TV and Oscars for film?
