Daily analysis, Friday, March 28

March 28, 2014

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.)The Final Wager - March 28, 2014

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?

    Missed the episode, saw a you tube clip showing Amy scolding A.T. after she was announced winner. No sound on clip, any idea what that may have been about?

    That chick is whacky…

    I think she was angry at Trebek because, to her, he revealed her “strategy” of betting small and in even numbers.

    • This is a good hypothesis actually. Good thinking!

What do you think?
