More information about Final Jeopardy:
Variety reported on this first back when Manchester by the Sea received its nomination. It was Amazon’s first Best Picture nomination.
Unlike Netflix, though, even though Amazon will buy films for its digital platform, they will also give their films theatrical releases. It grossed over $77 million in theatres worldwide, per Box Office Mojo.

After the Final Jeopardy! round, Alex came on again. He said, “A word about today’s Final Jeopardy, ladies and gentlemen. We could have been a little more precise with our wording. We should have indicated that Manchester by the Sea was distributed by a streaming service, not produced by one. The contestant who was affected by this has been invited back and will appear with us again later this year.”
So, it looks like we’ll be seeing Rebecca again in the future!
