By the 2008 Academy Awards, Walt Disney’s company had been nominated for more than 200 Oscars with more than 50 wins just in films under the Disney logo. Of  those films, there are 51 nominations for animated features with 14 wins. With  Pixar under the Ears, that amount close to doubles with 13 Oscar wins for Pixar.  Disney will likely continue to tack on more wins since it has distributed all of  the major film releases for Pixar and bought the company two years ago.

As for Walt, he holds the record for most Oscars with 22 in regular  categories and four honorary out of his 59 nominations.
