Quiz Description

I feel like, too often, film questions at trivia are based around movies that came out pre-2000. There's no love for people who go to the movies nowadays! This will be a quiz that will reward having seen each of the 2018 Best Picture noms, but it will be possible to answer if you have simply heard of the films or, for many questions, don't even know what these films are. THIS QUIZ WILL HAVE SPOILERS FOR THE 9 FILMS NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE IN 2018. I'd rate this quiz as 2/10 if you've seen the films. 4/10 if you've heard of the films. 6/10 if you've never heard of the films.
