Doesn't question 10 have TWO correct answers?

My correct answer is different than yours. From your list I picked another famous also-ran that received 9 nominations and no wins.

Someone in a Tree 2 and I apparently made the same error, but I agree with him.  Our choice should be considered correct as well. Is its revival having won what makes the difference?

I made the same choice as well! I'm guessing the author of the quiz might've considered its best revival of a musical award akin to best musical

Yes to the last three commenters.  I've changed the wording of the question so that my answer is unambiguously correct now. Sorry about that.

Highest correct response rate: Question 13, about Oscar-nominated directors. I'm impressed.

 

Lowest: Question 4, about a Oscar acceptance speech by a Broadway veteran in 1954.
