  1. The ones I think I might actually know off the top of my head:

    2. Not sure about the first, but I think Silence of the Lambs was the last.
    4. Liz Taylor.
    5. John Travolta.
    8. It was accompanied by seven tiny Oscar statuettes.
    9. Katherine Bigelow.

    The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Oscar is on display at the Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing it. It’s pretty cool but easy to miss as it’s in a case with a host of other awards. Unless they’ve moved it in within the last two years or so, it’s in the lobby outside the museum and you might be able to spy it without buying a ticket (but you really should buy a ticket and go in, it’s a world-class museum.)

    1. Well done! Answers will be up in a few days! (Miss Taylor was coming on stage but was not the person speaking — I’ll give you full credit, though!)
