Film is also travelogue

Some humorous and unconventional examples of "travel" around New York City:

This is a bit of a tangent, but when you talk about multi Oscar honorees, I have to mention Walt Disney who holds the records for the most Oscars (26, 22 of which are competitive), the most nominations (59), and the most wins in one single night (he won 4 Oscars in 1953 alone). His nominations/wins are in categories of Best Short Subject, Cartoon; Best Short Subject, Live Action; Best Documentary Short; Best Documentary Feature; and even Best Picture (nominated for MARY POPPINS).

Basically he was honored so much, there is a whole wikipedia page just called "List of Academy Awards for Walt Disney": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Academy_Awards_for_Walt_Disney
