Today's Oscar Trivia #25

Sister Acts Only two sisters have both won Academy Awards as Best Actress. One is Olivia de Havilland, who is the other? (Hint: Her award came for the 1941 Suspicion.)

Rookies Of The Year Among those who received acting nominations in their film debuts was this smoldering new star, nominated as Best Actor for The Search (1948). Name him.

Five For Four Nine times a movie has had five nominations for acting awards. One such occasion came when Albert Finney, Hugh Griffith, Diane Cilento, Edith Evans and Joyce Redman were all nominated for the same classic 1963 comedy. Name it.

Fontaine had something going on with her eyebrow.

Olivia and Joan hated each other so much that they didn't go to their own mother's funeral because they were each afraid the other would show up. BTW they're both still alive.

Olivia was great, Joan... not so much.
