I think it would be good if you activated the 'next' button.

Good point. That didn't really work in the original but I think it's necessary here. Thanks.

You need to change the phrasing for the Gone with the Wind clue because although it was released in 1939, the ceremony for which it won was in 1940.

Good point, hlofa15. That held me up with Titanic. Man, that time flies! I didn't f around much, got all 30 guesses right, only got 30/40!

Had the same issue has hlofa15 on both GWTW and Titanic. They both actually won the awards the year after they were released, so 1940 and 1998. Other than that, awesome quiz! Nice mix of different types of events.

Maybe it's just me, but I think it needs way more time. Though I am very slow with the clickable quizzes so perhaps just me. I needed at least 2 mins more. Excellent quiz though. :)
