--Click on the photo from 1947 featuring Miracle on 34th Street's Edmund Gwenn as Santa Claus. For his Santa role in Miracle on 34th Street, which was ranked ninth by the American Film Institute on a list of America's 100 most inspiring films, Gwenn won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Upon receiving his Oscar, he said "Now I know there is a Santa Claus!" He is the only person to win an acting Academy Award for playing the role of Santa Claus. Gwenn later reprised the Kris Kringle role on three different adaptations of Miracle on 34th Street for radio, including a 1948 performance on Lux Radio Theater.
