Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In 2002, became the first African-American to win Best Actress Oscar for her role in "Monster's Ball" (2001).

Answer: Halle

Although several African-American actresses had been nominated before Berry, including Diana Ross and Cicely Tyson in 1972 and Whoopi Goldberg in 1985, none had won the coveted statue for Best Actress.
Berry's career has gone from strength to strength, with roles such as Storm in the "X Men" franchise and Jinx in the James Bond movie "Die Another Day" (2002), although she has also won a Golden Raspberry for Worst Actress for her starring role in the 2004 movie, "Catwoman", which also scooped the Razzies for Worst Picture, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay.
2. British entrepreneur, started the electronics company "Amstrad" in 1968.

Answer: Alan

Amstrad stands for Alan Michael Sugar Trading and Sugar was just 21 years old when he created the company, which was taken over by telecommunications giant BSkyB in 2007 for £125 million ($156 million).
Since 2005, Sugar has been the face of the British version of the hit TV show, "The Apprentice", based on the American show of the same name, which starred Donald Trump.
3. 1976 Olympic figure skating champion.

Answer: John

Not only did Curry win Olympic gold in 1976, but he was also World Champion, beating USSR entrant, Vladimir Kovalyov.
During his Olympic programme, he successfully landed a triple toe loop, a triple Salchow and a triple loop jump, earning him 105.9 points out of a possible 108, with the only judges not to award him a perfect six being from USSR and Canada, whose entrants came second and third respectively, once again Kovalev of USSR taking silver and Toller Cranston of Canada winning bronze.
4. South African born, former England cricketer, played 79 test matches.

Answer: Allan

Lamb began his professional cricketing career in his native South Africa, but as the country was banned from international cricket indefinitely because of the apartheid policy of the government, he decided to move to UK in order to further his career.
Northamptonshire took a chance on him and he was a solid batsman for them from 1978 to 1995 as well as being selected for 201 international matches for England, for which he was eligible due to both his parents being born in UK.
5. Lyricist, worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber on "Evita" (1976) and Elton John on "The Lion King" (1994).

Answer: Tim

Sir Tim, as he became in 1994 when he was honoured by Queen Elizabeth II in her birthday honours list, has written so many great song lyrics in his career. In addition to the ones mentioned in the question, he is also responsible for stage shows such as "Jesus Christ Superstar" (1970 with Andrew Lloyd Webber), "Chess" (1984 with Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of Abba) and "Aladdin" (2011 with Alan Menken).

Answer: Kevin

Roles such as those mentioned plus Captain Jack Ross in "A Few Good Men" (1992), Jack Swigert in "Apollo 13" (1995) and Walter in "The Woodsman" (2004) have seen Bacon receive plenty of praise and plaudits, but amazingly, not a single Oscar nomination.

Long after Bean became a Hollywood star, he continued to perform in the role which brought him fame in UK, that of Richard Sharpe, a sergeant of the British army in the Napoleonic Wars.
Sharpe is based on the series of books by Bernard Cornwell and between 1993 and 2008, Bean starred in 16 TV movies as Sharpe.
8. Musician, had a UK number one in 1989 when he teamed up with Gene Pitney for a duet of "Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart".

In 1982, Almond formed the experimental band Marc and the Mambas, who were short lived without any mainstream success and following the break up of Soft Cell in 1984, he began recording as a solo artist, his biggest hits being the duet with Pitney in 1989 and his cover of the David McWilliams song, "Days of Pearly Spencer" in 1992.
9. Canadian actor, starred in "Uncle Buck" (1989) and "Cool Runnings" (1993).

Answer: John

Comedy is what he did best though, and roles such as Wink Wilkinson in "Little Shop of Horrors" (1986), Barf in "Spaceballs" (1987) and Del Griffith in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" won him many fans.
He was also co owner of Canadian Football League (CFL) team the Toronto Argonauts from 1991 to his death in 1994 aged just 43, and one of his proudest moments was watching his Argos beat the Calgary Stampeders to lift the Grey Cup in 1991.
