The Academy Awards are coming up so I just thought I’d have a little fun and try and come up with a few Oscar trivia quizzes. Hopefully, even if they are hard, they will be fun.
The first quiz is about various types of roles that have received nominations, some of them perhaps quite surprising and unusual for such a respected award.
Unfortunately, as much as I tried to put the answers in a box upside down at the bottom of the post, I couldn’t figure out how to do that, so I will be posting the answers in a different post starting the middle of next week. If anyone knows how to insert a text box with upside (and much smaller text) in a post, please let me know.
