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..
