Questions:

Although he does have three nominations for his acting, Brad Pitt’s lone Oscar win to date came from his producer credit on what 2013 historical drama in which he also had a small role?

Click to Reveal Answer
12 Years A Slave

Known at the time mostly as a television star and the son of a famous actor, who won an Oscar for producing One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest more than a decade before winning the Best Actor award?

Click to Reveal Answer
Michael Douglas

Which actor received the only three Oscar nominations of his career for a film in which he directed himself – winning Best Director (and Best Picture) but losing Best Actor to Jeremy Irons?

Click to Reveal Answer
Kevin Costner

Warren Beatty has received 14 Oscar nominations in his career, and only four for his acting. But he has only won one of those – the Best Director award for what 1981 film?

Click to Reveal Answer
Reds

At age 70, he received an Honorary Award for his body of work, which he initially wanted to turn down claiming that he was “still in the game.” He did end up getting one more Best Actor nomination in 2006, at the time making him the fourth-oldest Best Actor nominee ever, but didn’t win that one either.

Click to Reveal Answer
Peter O'Toole

This actor won Best Picture and Best Director for a film that received ten Oscar nominations, but he didn’t get one for Best Actor, possibly for the hubris of casting himself as a Scotsman.

Click to Reveal Answer
Mel Gibson

Robert Redford is arguably better known for his directing work at this point, and won his only non-honorary Oscar for directing Ordinary People. But for what other Best Picture winner did Redford receive his only Best Actor nomination?

Click to Reveal Answer
The Sting

He won a Juvenile Award in 1938 and an Honorary Award in 1983 “in recognition of his 60 years of versatility in a variety of memorable film performances,” but failed to win any of his four acting nominations in between. He was also the number one box office draw between 1939 and 1940 – spanning two decades!

Mickey Rooney

Angelina Jolie won the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 2013 after spending more than a decade as a goodwill ambassador for what UN agency?

Click to Reveal Answer
Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) / UN Refugee Agency

Somewhat insultingly, he did not win Best Picture, Best Actor, or Best Director (for which he was not even nominated) at the 1946 Oscars, but he did receive an honorary award "for his outstanding achievement as actor, producer and director in bringing Henry V to the screen."

Click to Reveal Answer
Laurence Olivier

She spent her later years working for UNICEF and was awarded the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award shortly after her death in 1993 – her second Oscar, but first since her first major starring role 40 years earlier.

Click to Reveal Answer
Audrey Hepburn

Okay, so this is kind of the reverse, but upon receiving his Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Syriana, George Clooney quipped, “All right, so I’m not winning Director.” For what other film was Clooney indeed nominated for Best Director that night?

Good Night, and Good Luck
