S05.E04: Best Supporting Actor Support

It’s all about supportive partners on this week’s new episode! Newcomers Chris and Karenna square off against season three returner Paul. Round one will test our players’ knowledge of which actors have been onscreen-married to other actors, while round two asks about the cast that “supported” several Best Supporting Actor” contenders to their Oscar wins. But at the end of the day, it all comes down to making the right choices in the lightning round!
