10 of Your Favorite Famous Singers Who Won an Academy Award

By  | 

Although the Academy Awards mostly focuses on the success of actors, we love how there are over 20 categories that focus on acting, direction, set design, hair and makeup and more. It takes hundreds of people to make a movie happen and it’s important that each and every person gets recognized for their contribution.

Yes, there may be a whole entire award show dedicated to musicians, but working on a film is a whole new level of talent. There are tons of celebrities who have attempted to break into the music industry, and there are a few who actually succeeded and even won an Oscar for their efforts! So, we rounded up 10 of the biggest pop singers who have been honored with an Academy Award, whether it be for their acting chops or their work on the soundtrack. (Let’s see if we can add Mary J. Blige to the list this weekend!)
