Stacker Logo By Seth Berkman of Stacker | Slide 1 of 51: Awards season is just around the corner. To prep yourself for the nominations, red carpet styles, and moving speeches, this is the perfect quiz for all you Rotten Tomatoes raters and aspiring auteurs. This has been a year for movies unlike any other, with many films getting delayed, stuck in limbo, and theaters around the country closed during the coronavirus pandemic. Still, it’s always a good time to reassess some of Hollywood’s leading ladies, who have inspired, dazzled, and fought for equity through their roles. Stacker compiled a quiz of 25 “Jeopardy!” clues about actresses using movie databases and primary news sources. Clues were taken from J-Archive, the “Jeopardy!” database, as of November 2020. Each “clue slide” includes the original clue, category, value, and date the episode aired, while each “answer slide” uses the classic “Jeopardy!” format of a “who is/what is” question. Do you know the slew of animated movies a certain stand-up comic has lent her voice to? What about the sitcom and movie star who began with a memorable role in a 1980s made-for-TV movie about teenage drug use? Or the former beauty queen who perfectly portrayed a “drama queen” on primetime TV? Here are the answers to those questions and more. Learn about the actresses who’ve won multiple Oscars, Emmys, and Tonys, as well as the Irish-born actress who has become a vocal proponent of ending the gender wage gap in Hollywood. This story is sure to delight longtime fans of “Jeopardy!” and the late Alex Trebek, as well as avid moviegoers biding time before they can cozy up again with a tub of popcorn in their favorite cinema.
