What Movie Did This Actor Win Their Only Oscar For?
The Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences has been holding the Academy Awards, or Oscars, since 1928. Despite all the movies that come out each year, only 4 Oscars are given out to actors each year (and from 1928 to 1935 it was only 2 Oscars). That means that every year very fine actors miss out on receiving an Oscar for their good work. It also means that very few actors have ever won more than a single Academy Award. In fact, only 40 actors have ever won more than one Oscar for acting, and only six have ever won more than two. Some of the most famous actors in history have lost out time and again. Meryl Streep, one of the greatest actresses of all-time has won just 3 awards despite being nominated 20 times. So now we look to challenge your film history knowledge a little bit. See if you can figure out what one movie each of the following actors have won their only Oscar for.
