Today's Oscar Trivia #5

An All-Knighter Several Brits have been both knighted and nominated as actors by the Academy (some prior to their knighting, some afterwards). Sir Michael Redgrave, knighted in 1959, received his only nomination for which 1947 film?

The Good Luck Charm While actress and frequent extra Bess Flowers was never nominated for an Oscar herself, she holds the record for most appearances in Best Picture nominees (22). What 1937 Deanna Durbin musical, with Flowers in an uncredited bit, was an unlikely nominee as Best Picture?

By the way, when Katie-Bar-The-Door and I live in Britain, it was generally considered bad manners for an American to use the term "Brit," but I use it here because TCM did. Take it up with Bob Osborne the next time you see him.

Brits calls themselves Brits. You must know the uppity Brits.

But, I didn't cheat!

Okay, more coffee.
