Special Achievement Academy Award

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Special Achievement Award is an Academy Award given for an achievement that makes an exceptional contribution to the motion picture for which it was created, but for which there is no annual award category. The award may only be conferred for achievements in productions that also qualify as an eligible release for distinguished achievements and meet the Academy's eligibility year and deadlines requirements.


This table displays the individuals who received the Special Achievement Oscar for their contributions to film. The category was inaugurated in 1972.
