You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Create a report called They Can't All Be Winners, add a data source which connects to the Movies database and a dataset which returns these fields:

Make sure the Value of each item matches one of those returned by the calculated field.
Add a filter to the dataset so that it returns films whose OscarSuccess matches the value of the parameter:
Use the expression builder to select the parameter.
Test the report works then save and close it.
This table is sorted in descending order of Oscar nominations.
