It may take years to hone the acting skills necessary to win an academy award, but in terms of screen time, a few minutes will do it.

In 1977, Beatrice Straight won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the movie Network. Her total time on the screen was 5 minutes, 40 seconds.

It is worth noting that Hermione Baddeley was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 1960 for her role in Room at the Top. That nomination was earned as a result of 2 minutes, 20 seconds’ worth of screen time.
