Short Performance Oscars

The record for shortest Oscar winning performance is held by Beatrice Straight, who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her work in Network (1976), which she appeared in for just one 5 minute and 40 second scene.

Second shortest record for a Best Actor Oscar is held by David Niven, for his work in Separate Tables (1958), which he appeared in for 15 minutes and 38 seconds.

Third shortest record for Best Actor Academy Award is held by Anthony Hopkins, for his work in The Silence of the Lambs (1991), which he appeared in for just over 16 minutes. All prove that sometimes less is more.
