Are These Oscars Scandals Real or Fake?
Since 1929, the Academy Awards, more popularly known as The Oscars, have been awarded on an annual basis. They’re considered the gold standard of movie awards, and winning an Oscar is a great honor in the movie world. But there have also been many, many shocking moments throughout the history of The Oscars. This quiz will challenge you to remember some of the most notorious and spot scandals that never actually happened in real life.
Everyone remembers what is likely the most shocking Oscar scandal of all time: when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock over a joke about his wife’s lack of hair. That is not one of the questions ahead, as it’s just too recent and too well-known. Luckily, there are many other Oscar scandals to choose from. And the pool of fake Oscars scandals to pick from is infinite! So see if you can tell which of these Oscar scandals are real and which are fake.
Academy Award scandals are nothing new. The first few Academy Award scandals may seem odd to people in the 21st Century. It was, after all, a very different world back then. The film industry has come a long way. But as Will Smith slapping Chris Rock shows, there's still plenty of room for shock and surprise at the Oscars in the present day.
One important thing about the following quiz is that all the scandals occurred on the day of the Oscars ceremonies. Some real-life scandals happened at some point before or after the ceremonies and are not included ahead. For instance, the first Black person to win an Oscar, Hattie McDaniel, had her Oscar stolen years after her Oscar win. This shocking story needs to be realized, but as it didn't occur during the ceremony, it's not included.
