Over his lifetime (and even after his death), Walt Disney won an astounding 22 Oscars. The majority were in “non-major” categories like Best Cartoon Short Subject and the wonderfully old-timey Best Two Reel Short Subject; a few were honorary (like the one recognizing the artistic achievement of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs); and one, his final, was awarded two years after his passing away in 1966. Talk about competitive… Other Oscar records owned by Disney include:
Most Consecutive Years with Nominations: 22 Earned between 1941 and 1962, and
Most Wins by a Person at a Single Awards Show: 4 Disney did that in 1953, winning Oscars for Documentary Feature, Short Subject, Cartoon Short Subject, and Two-reel Short Subject.
