If you are interested, here are my prior Oscar quizzes:


  1. It won't surprise you that I did really well on this quiz without going to IMDB.

    1. Last year you mentioned that you missed some because of similarity of names, so you improved on your performance. Good job. :-)

  2. Do you enjoy watching live sex webcams? You will love BongaCams.
