Julianne Moore didn't play Rollergirl (that was Heather Graham), Moore played Amber Waves.

Thank you for the correction ... that was a bad mistake on my part. I welcome any critique and suggestions for improvement.

Judi Dench played Queen Elizabeth I. in 'Shakespeare in Love', not Queen Victoria.

@MrWhiplash: Judi Dench was nominated for playing Elizaeth I in "Shakespeare in Love", but that film came out in 1999, not 1997. I confirmed that the clue given is correct for Dench. She was nominated twice in that decade for playing two different queens. Thank you for the comment ... it is a common enough misunderstanding, and I appreciate your time to stop and comment.

It's a little confusing because Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett both played Queen Elizabeth in 1998.

@j0l0n: I was aware that this could be an issue, which is why I put the note above when I released the quiz. None of the roles in this quiz actually won their performer an Oscar. Judi Dench did win an Oscar for playing Elizabeth I, so she can't be matched to Elizabeth I here. I wish it were possible to put that note in bold for this quiz, because I know that it unfortunately comes into play on this one.
