The Envelope

Oscar trivia: Take a guess on acting prizes, rap songs and more

Protagonists in this year's best picture nominees include a mathematician, a disabled theoretical physicist, a concierge, an aspiring jazz drummer and a teen who neither learns kung fu nor goes missing. Got no question on that one, it just struck us funny. Anyway, here are this year's nominees for Oscar Trivia Stumpers. In honor of Sundance champ, Spirit contender and multiple Oscar nominee "Whiplash," these questions riff, jazz-like, off the current crop of hopefuls. Good luck to all — to the nominees and to you!
