Who was the first nonhuman to win an Oscar?


Technically, a nonhuman has never actually won an Academy award. A special award was handed out by the Academy for Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to Walt Disney for the creation of Mickey Mouse.

Disney received the award in November of 1932, as part of the 5th-annual Academy Awards. That ceremony honored movies released between Aug. 1, 1931 and July 31, 1932. However, there are many who argue Mickey Mouse was actually the first nonhuman to win the Oscar. In 1932, the press declared the cartoon mouse the first nonhuman to win an Oscar when Disney won his special award.
