  2. 12/15 for the films although I recognised one but couldn’t name it. For the directors 7/15 which pisses me off. I know the director of Wayne’s World and Clueless is on the tip of my tongue. It’s interesting that the more award worthy less commercial films seem to have directors I recognise more. Than there is Kathryn Bigelow who has made films dealing often with masculinity and is the first female director to win an Oscar. I should know who the fuck she is and that she directed Point Break – one of if not her best film. It’s driving me crazy I can’t name the director of Julie/Julia who did a few collaborations with Streep.
