Daily analysis, Friday, March 28
The defending champion heading into 1980s Week and 1990s Week went on to win a ton of games. Will the same hold true for 2000s Week?
(OK, it was Arthur Chu both times. Whatever.)
Great, great game by Amy. I can’t wait to see how far she goes.
Amy Nienaber: 28,200
Douglas Beeler: 4,600
Julia Levine: 9,800
The Final Jeopardy! category: OSCAR NOMINATIONS
Amy can wager up to 8,600.
Julia should wager no more than 600 to remain in second place.
Of note: the two Daily Doubles in Double Jeopardy! were hiding under $800 clues. A backlash to Arthur Chu, perhaps?
In any event, we’ll see you Monday for the next set of preliminaries in our Battle of the Decades!
A few people have asked me what Amy said to Alex when he came over to shake her hand. I really don’t know. I doubt she was scolding or yelling at him for anything; the lip-readings I’ve seen have been poorly done.
The Final Jeopardy! clue for March 28, 2014 (OSCAR NOMINATIONS):
PRIOR TO “SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK”, THE LAST FILM TO GET OSCAR NOMINATIONS IN ALL 4 ACTING CATEGORIES WAS THIS FILM PARTLY SET IN RUSSIA
Correct response: What is Reds?
