In its 93-year history, 44 actors have won multiple Oscars for acting. Many of these winners include some of the most famous movie stars of all time, such as Marlon Brando and Katharine Hepburn. However, there are countless actors with multiple Oscars who have become lost to history.
Arguably the greatest character actor of all time, Walter Brennan appeared in a multitude of seminal Hollywood films from the Golden Era. Brennan was the first actor to win three Academy Awards for acting in the films Come and Get It, Kentucky, and The Westerner.
Despite winning three Academy Awards, Brennan's most well-known performances occur in films where he did not win Oscars. Among his whopping 244 acting credits are supporting roles in landmark films such as Red River, To Have and Have Not, Rio Bravo, and My Darling Clementine.
