Friday Funday Trivia: Before They Were Oscar Winners

In honor of The Academy Awards (which airs this Sunday), this week's quiz features 3 montages of 15 photos of  Oscar winning performers when they were young. You have to correctly identify the performer. Also, you can earn 1 bonus pt for each movie you can name that earned the performer an Academy Award for acting. To enlarge the montages, click on them. Below the montages are the point values for each photo. Adding the point totals for the photos and the bonus points you can earn, there are a total of 60 points possible.

If you are a Friday Funday Trivia virgin about to be touched for the very first time, please read the following rules before playing:

* The game is pub style so looking up the answers, using friends/family for help, etc. is not allowed.

* If you are the only player to correctly identify a photo, you earn 5 bonus points. The first player to submit their final answers to me will earn 2 bonus points. 

* Please do not post your answers in the comments section. Instead, send them to no later than Friday night (2/24) at 11:59 PM EST. The answers will be posted on Saturday, Feb. 25th.

Not an official rule: If you have no clue about a photo, feel free to come up with an intentionally funny answer. Although you won't get credit for a correct answer, you'll get a thumbs up from me for originality, execution, and showmanship. What can I say, I love to be entertained and I'll take it any way I can get it!

Have fun and good luck!
