Considering the duration of his career, over half a century, his film oeuvre has been rather small: twenty-two features and a number of documentaries. Nonetheless, the number of Oscar-winning performances in Zinnemann's films has been disproportionately large.

Eighteen actors were nominated for their work a Zinnemann film. Some more than once, like Montgomery Clift in The Search, as a sensitive American soldier befriending an orphan in Europe right after the War, and in From Here to Eternity, as yet another sensitive soldier.
