One person in the movie business has been thanked in Oscar speeches more than any other, it’s been revealed. And that includes God. A study published by The Hollywood Reporter (via Vocativ) finds that from the 1,396 acceptance speeches that are archived by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, director Steven Spielberg is thanked 42 times.

With a 75-year-old Harrison Ford returning as Indiana Jones, the plot of Indy 5 could be just be Dr. Jones in a retirement home getting his hip replaced (no-ones made that gag yet, right?). Each Indiana Jones film has stuck to the fictional chronology of his life, so 1983’s ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ featured a 39-year-old Indy battling Nazis in 1936, while 2008’s ‘Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ was set in 1957 featuring a 66-year-old Indy. This suggests that the as-yet-untitled fifth Indiana Jones movie will be set amid the historical milieu of the late 60s.
