Since it starts tomorrow, this weekend's Puzzle Corner is built around the theme of Daylight Saving Time.

Who originated the concept of Daylight Saving Time?

How many new words can you form using the letters in the word DAYLIGHT?

We'll have the answers next weekend. Don't forget to Spring Forward between now and then or you'll be an hour late everywhere you go.
Meanwhile, let's peek into THE ANSWERS BOX and get the results from last weekend's Oscar Quiz. May I have the envelope please...

1. The Oscars are administered by the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts, and Sciences.
2. Even taking this year's awards into account, THREE pictures are tied for winning the most Oscars. With 11 each: Ben Hur (1959), Titanic (1997), and The Lord of the Ring: Return of the King (2003).
3. To date, Bob Hope has the honor of hosting the most Oscar ceremonies. He was the lone host eleven times between 1939, 1940, 1942, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, and 1977 while was part of a co-hosting team in 1944, 1945, 1952, 1954, 1957, 1958, and 1974. The next closest (to date) is Billy Crystal with eight appearances between 1987, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2003.
4. The Golden Raspberries (aka the Razzies), acknowledging the worst in cinema, are presented the night before the actual Oscars.
5. Paul Newman won his lone Oscar for The Color of Money (1986), which was the sequel to his 1961 film The Hustler, which did earn Newman one of his other nominations.
