Question of the Day

Yesterday we asked: Who gave the longest acceptance speech—five-and-a-half minutes—in Oscar history? Extra credit if you tell us what award it was and for what film.

Answer: Greer Garson had a lot to say when she accepted the Academy Award for Best Actress for “Mrs. Miniver” in 1943—so much, in fact, that her speech earned her the Guinness World Record for "Longest Oscars Acceptance Speech."

Congrats to Craig Pittman, first in with the correct answer and the extra credit bonus points.

Your question of the day for today is…On this day in 1983, the final episode of the TV series M*A*S*H* aired, with a record 125 million viewers watching. What was the name of the physician who was largely credited with the development of the U.S. Army's MASH units, which were based on his concept of stationing doctors closer to the front lines?
