15/17, I always think Doris Day won for Love Me or Leave Me, turns out she wasn't even nominated. Also missed Jack Albertson, couldn't get Willie Wonka out of my head for him.

16/17! Forgot The Subject Was Roses [17]! A few fun facts: Shatner doesn't have an Oscar, but he has 2 Emmies , not as Kirk but Denny Crane! Michael Douglas has 2 Oscars, the other for producing Cuckoo's Nest. These last 2 are shockers: Donna Reed and Shirley Jones, both wholesome moms on TV, won their Oscars playing prostitutes [hey, so did Jane Fonda]. Finally, technically Steve McQueen DID win an Oscar, but it was the black director and not the actor in the quiz!
