When I did my research, I discovered that the top Oscar winners aren't actors or actresses but composers,producers and designers..surprised right?..Some of them include:

Alfred Newmann,a composer who worked on hundreds of films throughout his career was nominated for 43 Oscars and won nine.

Edith head ,a costume designer was nominated for 35 awards and won 8

Disney song writer and composer,Alan Menken has been nominated for 19 awards since 1986 and won 8.Most recently,Menken was nominated for best original song for " I see the light" featured in the animated "tangled" in 2010.The same year,he was honoured with the hall of fame.

Gordon Hollingshead worked on more than 200 short films,documentaries from 1934 to 1953.Producer Gordon Hollingshead was nominated for 23 Oscars and received 7 awards..

A lot of research you did there. That is a good answer but, not the one I was looking for. I meant which actor.

Oh..okay...I didn't see "actor" in the question though... from what i saw online,some actors got 3 Oscars and that's the most I saw..I can't remember where I saw it though..I think denzel got two Oscars..I may have to do some more research on that

I am sorry for that mistake. I just took it for granted. I changed it. Sorry for the miscommunication.
