Woody Allen is indifferent to the Oscars; indeed, he didn't even show up to collect his four prizes. But this talented writer-director has crafted seven roles that won Academy Awards for their performers. And another 11 parts in his pictures earned their portrayers acting nominations. 

Only two helmers -- William Wyler (14) and Elia Kazan (9) -- have directed more Oscar-winning performances. 

And with 18 nominated performances overall, Allen is tied for sixth with Mike Nichols (18), Sidney Lumet (18), and George Stevens (18), ranking behind Wyler (36), Kazan (24), Martin Scorsese (22), George Cukor (21), and Fred Zinnemann (20).

After several films to start his career, Allen's first big success at the Oscars was "Annie Hall" (1977). His leading lady Diane Keaton played the title character and won as Best Actress. She defeated Anne Bancroft ("The Turning Point"), Jane Fonda ("Julia,"), Shirley MacLaine ("The Turning Point"), and Marsha Mason ("The Goodbye Girl").
