Page 40 of the rules talks about which abilities to use for Lead Actor and Lead Actress nominees. It says use the values for Blue Stars if performing in Dramas or "Romance movies"; Green Stars if performing in Comedy roles; and Red Stars if performing an Genre movies that required use of a specific Set or special structures as listed on the Script card for that particular movie.

Some questions on the above:

1. What is meant by the term "Romance movie"? I don't see this listed on any of the Scripts that come with the game.

2. What if the Script of the movie in question didn't fall into any of the above categories? Example: Double Indemnity. Does that mean that the Oscar nominee starts with 0 stars?

3. What if the Script of the movie in question falls into more than one category? Example: For Whom the Bell Tolls, a Drama which also uses a Theme Set. Can the player choose the one category with the most stars in that case?

Hi John

Category Romance is not present in the base set, but will be present in the expansions.
In fact if the film also features one of the features: Drama, Romance, Comedy, actor head for awards on the ability corrispondendte.
In all other cases, will test about Character.
If a movie contains multiple categories, the actor has to be tested, if any, of Drama, Romance or Comedy. If there are more of these categories, the player can choose.
