Who is the only woman to have directed an episode of the 1959-64 series? She's also the only person to have starred in one episode, and directed another.

Of the four series combined, (1959, 1985, 2002, and 2019), who is the only director of a Twilight Zone episode to have won an Academy Award for Best Director? For bonus points, name both the Oscar Winning film, and the TZ episode.

Who wrote the teleplay for eight episodes of Twilight Zone in the 1960's, and created two shows aired on CBS that each ran for nine seasons, and one or more of those seasons was in the top 10 viewed shows in the Neilsen ratings? What were the names of those two shows? (All or nothing, answer all three, or not at all).

Nope. Robert Redford never won an Academy Award for Best Actor. He did, however, win an Oscar for Best Director, (1981, for Ordinary People). Plus I asked for two names, not one. I consider partial answers to be wrong, even if the part answered is correct.

A married couple awake in a strange house in a strange town where everything is fake, and no other people, where are they?
Are they toy dolls in a miniature model town?

Correct!

There's actually a third person who meets these conditions, but I did ask for two. I'll post that as a separate question.

In addition to Lee Marvin and Art Carney, what Academy Award winner, (Best Actor), appeared in the 1969-64 series before winning his Oscar?

Answered correctly by shack in post #37. I forgot about him, my bad. There is a fourth. No actress meets these conditions.
