Disney’s All-Time Oscar Count Heading Into the 92nd Academy Awards

by Ray Keating
February 6, 2020

The Walt Disney Company stands just behind Netflix in terms of the number of Academy Award nominations this year heading into Sunday night’s 92nd Academy Awards.

As we noted before, Disney has 23 nominations, one behind the 24 for Netflix. So, it could be a big night for House of Mouse, which would add to an already staggering tally of Oscar wins.

In Disney A to Z: The Official Encyclopedia, Dave Smith noted that as of 2016 (for 2015 movies), Disney had won 113 Academy Award. And by the way, 32 of those were won by Walt Disney alone, which stands as a record that likely will never be approached, never mind broken.

By our tally, Disney won four Oscars at the February 2017 Academy Awards, two in 2018, and four more Oscars last year. That’s a total of 123 Oscars for the studio.

Will Disney’s number of Oscar winners grow on Sunday night, and if so, by how many?
