Oscar Quizzes

Oscar isn't just the name of a famous grouch; it's also the famous nickname given to the statue of the Academy Awards. Every year, the best movies, filmmakers and stars receive one of these guys, and they are usually a big deal. Sporcle features hundreds of the best timed Oscar quizzes, from a list of the most recent best picture winners quiz, or the Academy Award winners in our best animated movies feature trivia as well. If you're looking for a serious challenge, you might try naming best picture by character quiz, or even the actors with the most nominations of all time. Either way, even if you aren't the best at our timed trivia challenges, it's still an honor to be nominated.
