Methodology: The 55 Award-Winningest Screen Actors of All Time

Our tie breakers:
- Most Academy Awards
- Most Best Actor/Actress Academy Awards
- Most Supporting Actor/Actress Academy Awards
- Most Honorary Acting Academy Awards
- Most Golden Globes
- Most Best Actor/Actress Golden Globes
- Most Supporting Actor/Actress Golden Globes

Honorable mentions to Glenn Close, Judy Davis, Dennis Franz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tony Shaloub and Alfre Woodard. Each has won eight awards, but none has won an Oscar. We start our list with the eight-time award winners who have won at least one Oscar.
