Interesting insight! I think 7 is an ok number more than that would have made me really surprised:)
Had to point out that Matt Damon won an oscar for writing and Edward Zwick has won an oscar for producing, both of them did not win for acting. But this does not make this insight any less insightful

If one looks at overall award winners who attended Harvard, the list expands to 22 actors;

Yes agree. I was trying to do kind of like 7 famous actors. Many of the 22 actors have done very few movies and are not very known. That's why I limited it to academy only.

A few actors tried to sneak into the list using schools with Harvard in the name (nice try, Gyllenhaals, but Harvard-Westlake School doesn't count) :)

Here's the same query with a filter for Harvard University. We've got 15 actors left: http://bit.ly/163QDhS
