0-5. Timed Out.—Chronos

Add new Rule “Oscars”;

When any Actor stars in a film (has “A named role that appears in the IMDB credits of the film”) shown in eir Filmography e may make a DICEX roll where X equals the maximum value fame can be set to. If the roll is strictly less than eir fame, the Actor gains an Oscar. Each time an Actor gains an Oscar the number of Oscars e has, tracked in the GNDT colum “Oscars”, is increased by 1.

“Stars in a film”, according to your parenthetical definition, is not an instantaneous occurence; rather, it is a state-based condition that remains true as long as the Actor has a named role in eir Filmography.  Thus, the DICEX roll can be made repeadedly, gaining the Actor an arbitrarily large number of Oscars. against

against due to the problems.  Also, shouldn’t Oscars have some relationship to Critical Acclaim?

Fame an Oscar does not earn.
