Katharine Hepburn won four Academy Awards for Best Actress, more than any other actor in the history of the Academy Awards.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has given Academy Awards to actors and actresses for their performances in films since its conception. Throughout the history of the Academy Awards, there have been actors and actresses that have received multiple Academy Awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, or Best Supporting Actress. The only restriction is that actors cannot receive multiple nominations for the same performance.[1] This rule was implemented after Barry Fitzgerald received a Best Actor and a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance in Going My Way.[2]

As of 2014, 40 actors and actresses have received two or more Academy Awards in acting categories. Six of these actors and actresses have received three or more acting Academy Awards: Katharine Hepburn (four Best Actress awards),[3] Ingrid Bergman (two Best Actress awards and one Best Supporting Actress award),[4] Walter Brennan (three Best Supporting Actor awards),[5] Jack Nicholson (two Best Actor awards and one Best Supporting Actor award),[6] Meryl Streep (two Best Actress awards and one Best Supporting Actress award), and Daniel Day-Lewis (three Best Actor awards).
