Jeopardy! often has pop culture questions but it seems that sometimes no one can guess them! Katie Couric is currently hosting Jeopardy! and asked a Gwyneth Paltrow question. She joked that Gwyneth would be “upset” when no one could correctly answer the question about her.
The question was asking for the star “who won an Oscar for the 1998 film ‘Shakespeare in Love’ and won an Emmy for ‘Glee.’ It was in the category “I’ve Won an Oscar and an Emmy.” The right answer was, of course, Gwyneth Paltrow.
