Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Oscar Hyphenates) for Tuesday, October 2, 2018 (Season 35, Episode 17):
This actor has never been nominated for acting–he won, though, as a writer for 1997 & as a producer for 2012

|Kirsten Morry, a lawyer from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
|Cody Landis, a registered nurse from New York, New York

More information about Final Jeopardy:
While the word “hyphenate” is usually used as a verb, it is also a noun, meaning “a person who performs more than one function (such as a producer-director in filmmaking)”. Knowing this makes the clue a significant bit easier (as you’re looking for someone who does multiple things, as opposed to a person with a hyphenated last name.)
Ben Affleck won his first Oscar for screenwriting for the 1997 film Good Will Hunting, and his second for co-producing the 2012 film Argo.
Another thing I’m impressed about: the show has really tightened up its wording as of late on its Oscar clues. Note how the clue reads “for 1997” and “for 2012”, which unequivocally points to a 1997 film and a 2012 film (which received their respective awards in 1998 and 2013.)
