This list details Australian people working in the film industry who have been nominated for, or won, Academy Awards (also known as Oscars). These awards honour outstanding achievements in theatrically released motion pictures and were first presented by the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) in 1929. As of 2014, a total of 47 awards from 142 nominations have been won by Australians. Additionally, awards for Scientific and Engineering achievements have been given to Australians four times.

Art director and costume designer Catherine Martin has received more awards than any other Australian with four wins from six nominations in the Best Costume Design and Best Production Design categories. Martin along with Peter Weir and Cate Blanchett are the most nominated in this list gaining six each. Blanchett won one in each female acting categories (Best Leading Actress and Best Supporting Actress). Weir has received nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay without winning.

May Robson was the first Australian-born person to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 1933 for her performance in Lady for a Day. In 1942, Ken G. Hall became the first Australian to win an Academy Award for his documentary Kokoda Front Line! in the Best Documentary category. Suzanne Baker was the first Australian woman to win an Oscar which was given to her in 1977 for Best Animated Short for Leisure. Blanchett was the first Australian actor to win more than one award in the acting categories.[1] Peter Finch was the first actor to be awarded an Oscar posthumously, winning the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Network in 1976. The only other acting Oscar awarded posthumously was to fellow Australian Heath Ledger 32 years later when his performance in The Dark Knight earned him the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2008.

Australians have been nominated at least once in all categories except Best Foreign Language Film, Best Live Action Short Film and Best Sound Editing. The Oscar for Best Costume Design has been the most successful category for Australians with seven wins from 17 nominations. The Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Documentary (Short Subject) are the only categories in this list where Australians have been nominated without winning.
