TRIVIA THURSDAY was a test of your knowledge of cinema + ’80s TV.
Question: Which actor broke through on a popular ’80s sitcom, then went on to win Oscars for acting & best picture… for what films?
Answer: Some good guesses, such as Tom Hanks or Leonardo DiCaprio, but the key in the question was a Best Picture Oscar. George Clooney won Best Supporting Actor in “Syriana” and Best Picture for “Argo,” with his big break on the “Facts of Life” sitcom.
