    Celebrities Who Won An Oscar With Less Than 20 Minutes Of Screen Time

    These celebrities proved that it's not the length of the time you're on the screen that counts, it's what you do with it.

    Anthony Hopkins, ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ (1991)
    Screen time: 16 minutes
    Although the final time count is debated (some say it’s only 12 minutes), Hopkins’ portrayal of Dr. Hannibal Lecter was a short one. This didn’t stop the Academy from awarding him Best Actor in 1992.

    Ned Beatty, ‘Network’ (1976)Screen time: 5 minutes, 53 secondsHe only had one scene as corporate chairman Arthur Jensen, but apparently that was plenty of time to warrant an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. When defending his opinion that no actor should ever turn down a role, he jokingly said, “I worked a day on ‘Network’ and got an Oscar nomination for it.”
