Who is Al Pacino?
Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?
This exact question came up at a pub quiz that I was playing last summer. Our team definitely got this question when I was playing it at pub quiz, and I definitely got it today. Al Pacino won his Oscar of Best Actor for his role in Scent of a Woman, and was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Glengarry Glen Ross.
Also, I’d like to throw some kudos to the writing staff. Their use of “For 1992” to open the question perfectly pins the question to “1992 films”, even though the Oscars are presented in 1993. Well done.
