More information about Final Jeopardy:

Actress Frances McDormand has been married to Joel Coen since 1984, and has acted in many Coen Brothers films; winning the Oscar for Best Actress for her role as Marge Gunderson in Fargo.

An interesting factoid here, though, is that prior to 2003, the Coen Brothers were not allowed to share directorial credit, because of Directors Guild of America rules. Once the Guild determined that they were an “established duo” in 2003, they were then permitted to share directorial credit.

Also, I’d like to give credit where credit is due to the writers: they have really gotten better over the last two seasons when it comes to years on Oscars; in this case, McDormand’s first Oscar was awarded in 1997 for a 1996 film. The wording of this clue is correct.
