The question was worth $1,000 and to my surprise, someone knew the answer!

The category was called "The Goldberg Variations", variations on the name of Goldberg.

Well, what was the answer/question?

The question was "He was nominated 16 times for best original score but his only win was for The Omen"

An easy no brainer for anyone here but they weren't film music fanboys or soundtrack collectors.

I remember Jeopardy had a "Film Composers" category sometime in the past couple months. I was naturally excited for it, but then the contestants avoided the category the entire round and only got to the first couple clues before time ran out. The clues were ridiculously, pointlessly easy anyway...for a film score fan, that is. wink But that's the nature of Jeopardy: if you're an enthusiast of any given field, topic, or thing, the category on it will likely be way too simple for you to be even remotely challenged.

Same reason I never picked up the James Bond Scene-It game.

For inquiring minds, I believe the answers to the first two clues were John Williams and Henry Mancini, and the clues basically listed their major works. I think Williams' clue may also have referenced the Boston Pops Orchestra, if I'm not imagining that.

Very true. Still, a few years ago I was taken aback when a photo of Jean Harlow was shown and none of the three contestants could identify her! I'm sure if it was Jennifer Aniston, they all would have rang in!

This re-aired tonight.

Incidentally, I found a flaw in the James Bond Scene-It game three questions in.
