The Oscars will crown a new crop of Hollywood royalty when the winners are announced during the Sun., Feb. 26 ceremony (8 p.m. EST on ABC); but many past Academy Award honorees have now moved from the big screen to the small screen.

Just looking at this year's star-studded new shows, there are multiple Oscar winners who have decided to head to TV, like "Smash" star Anjelica Huston (who has one Academy Awards and was nominated for two more) and the leading man of "Luck," Dustin Hoffman (who has two Oscars and five more nominations).

But they're not alone. From the most hilarious TV grandmother to a beloved telepathic barmaid (who is in love with a vampire), check out our list of 15 current small screen stars who have earned Academy Awards.
