The Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor is an award presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). It is given in honor of an actor who has delivered an outstanding performance in a supporting role while working within the film industry. At the 9th Academy Awards ceremony held in 1937, Walter Brennan was the first winner of this award for his role in Come and Get It.[1] Initially, winners in both supporting acting categories were awarded plaques instead of statuettes.[2] Beginning with the 16th ceremony held in 1944, however, winners received full-sized statuettes.[3] Currently, nominees are determined by single transferable vote within the actors branch of AMPAS; winners are selected by a plurality vote from the entire eligible voting members of the Academy.[4]

Since its inception, the award has been given to 71 actors, and 310 have been nominated for it. Brennan has received the most awards in this category with three awards. Brennan, Robert Duvall, Arthur Kennedy, Jack Nicholson, and Claude Rains were nominated on four occasions, more than any other actor. As of the 2015 ceremony, J.K. Simmons is the most recent winner in this category for his role as Terrence Fletcher in Whiplash.
