1. Oscar Nominee

Peck was nominated for four Best Actor Oscars for his lead roles in "The Keys to the Kingdom" (1944), "The Yearling" (1946), "Gentleman's Agreement" (1947), and "Twelve O'Clock High."

2. Oscar Recipient

While Peck won his first and only Best Actor Oscar for "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1962), he actually received a second Academy Award as a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award recipient in 1968.

He was winner for Best Motion Picture Actor for "The Yearling" (1946), Best Motion Picture Actor – Drama for "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1962), and Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture for "Moby Dick" (1989), an honor he shared with "The Rat Pack" star Don Cheadle in a tie.

Peck was also the winner of two of the Globes' Henrietta Awards for World Film Favorite, Male in 1951 and 1955; and was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award in 1969.

Peck was also nominated three times for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for "Captain Newman, M.D." (1963), "MacArthur" (1977) and "The Boys From Brazil" (1978).

Peck started to transition to more television projects starting in the early 1980s, but was only honored once by the Academy of Television Arts and Science with a Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie nomination for "Moby Dick" (1998).

This was his final on-camera appearance before his death in 2003 at the age of 87.

5. Miscellaneous Awards

Peck was honored by the American Film Institute with a Lifetime Achievement Award, and was nominated twice by the British Film and Television Academy awards for Best Foreign Actor for "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1962) and "Roman Holiday" (1953).
