There were two easy clues in Final Jeopardy this week on Monday and Wednesday that gave us two triple solves. Friday’s clue came in with 2 solves. There was only one on Tuesday’s Landlocked Countries and Thursday’s Academy Awards clues. Seems like we’ve had a lot of Oscar-related FJ’s lately. Just last month, there were 3. My favorite was the geography/ word play combination on Tuesday.
