Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The reason I decided to try this show was because I love a good pub quiz, and I had never seen Radio 1's Chris Moyles on TV much. What seems to be a temporary replacement for The Sunday Night Project, it basically takes three celebrity guests to answer twelve questions about news events in the week. Asking the questions is a celebrity quiz master (on video). Whoever wins gets something from Chris's house, e.g. BluRay player, fridge contents, etc, and the loser has to sing at the end of the show with a song associated with an event, e.g. Madonna wanting to adopt a Baby, so the song would be "All That She Wants (Is Another Baby)". Celebrity guests competing have included: Mark Ronson, Louis Walsh, Barbara Windsor, Ruth Jones, Ronan Keating, David Walliams, Alan Carr, Davina McCall, Jerry Springer, Gary Barlow, Stephen Fry, Denise Van Outen, John Barrowman, Keith Allen, Patsy Palmer, Philip Glenister, Ulrika Jonsson, Justin Lee Collins, Carol Vorderman, Marco Pierre White, Claudia Winkleman, Patsy Kensit, Ben Miller and Abbey Clancy. Celebrity quiz masters have included: Sharon Osbourne, Jack Dee, Melanie Brown, Seth Rogen, Jimmy Carr, Heston Blumenthal, Michael McIntyre and Johnny Vegas. Additional guests (on video) have included: Countdown's Jeff Stelling and Rachel Riley, James Corden, Germaine Greer, Chris De Burgh, EastEnders' Anna Wing, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Lionel Richie, Ben Shephard, EastEnders' Leonard Fenton, Ken Livingstone, Sir Patrick Moore, Duncan Bannatyne, Tony Robinson, Peter Jones, Ironik and Martin Kemp. Very good!
