Nice quiz! Just one minor detail, Chris O'Donnell was never nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globes and Razzies yes, but no Oscar

Thanks, when I was going through GG noms to add to trip people up, I must have put him on the wrong side. Thanks. Just a side note, most of the bonus wrong answers were nominated for a GG in acting... including Hayden Christensen

I get the idea behind this quiz, but the starting premise "Acting nominees usually come from dramatic A-list movie stars" is false. And also, in what world is Tom Cruise not a "dramatic A-list movie star?"

I added people that can be put into a separate category. Great Actors that you forgot were great. Now Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson are seen as crazy people, that its easy to forget that they used to be successful actors.

I personally can't STAND Sacha Baron Cohen....but he was indeed nominated for an Oscar. Albeit for writing, he was still nominated and may be confusing to players (me included) if you ONLY mean for an acting Oscar.
