Newark, Delaware has had quite its share with regards to Jeopardy! as of late. Earl Holland has been on quite a roll on Sports Jeopardy! recently, reaching octochamp status!
Who is Whoopi Goldberg?
The awards referred to in the clue:
The Grammy was in 1986 for Best Comedy Recording for the album “Whoopi Goldberg Original Broadway Show Record”.
The Oscar was for “Ghost”.
The Daytime Emmys were surprisingly not for “Hollywood Squares” (where she received many nominations), but for producing “Beyond Tara: The Extraordinary Life of Hattie McDaniel” (Outstanding Special Class Special) and for Outstanding Talk Show Host (for “The View”).
Some things to note on this final day of November:
With regards to the STATE FLAGS category today, do you remember J! alumna Alexandra Petri’s Washington Post article where she makes fun of all 50 state flags?
Also, in case you weren’t aware, former NBC head Grant Tinker (who passed away this week) had quite a role in the early history of Jeopardy!
