Daniel Day-Lewis’ 3 Oscars have come for his roles in My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood, and Lincoln. He was also nominated for Best Actor for In The Name of the Father and Gangs of New York.

  1. That is one of the easiest Final Jeopardy questions of all time

  2. I swear they have used this answer before for final Jeopardy.

  3. It is amazing that a person can answer so many questions in order to qualify to get on the show, yet miss this Final question. Joanna answered those tough musical instrument questions on Wednesday, yet missed today’s Final. I am often amazed what people know and what they don’t know, no rhyme or reason.

  4. Is there some significance to the newly-appearing asterisks bracketing the Triple Stumper total, or am I seeing them because it’s no longer formatted in boldface and my browser has a problem rendering it? I see the asterisks in both Chrome and Internet Explorer?
