    That depends on your definition, really.

    The Beatles won eight Grammys:

    1964 Best New Artist

    1964 A Hard Day's Night - Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal

    1967 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Album Of The Year

    1967 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Other Pop/Rock&Roll/ Contemporary Awards or Instrumental

    1970 Let It Be - Best Instrumental Composition Written Specifically For A Motion Picture or for Television

    1996 Free As A Bird - Best Music Video, Short Form

    1996 Free as a Bird - Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal

    1996 The Beatles Anthology - Best Music Video, Long Form

    The 5th Dimension won six Grammys:

    1967Up, Up and Away - Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal

    1967Up, Up and Away - Other Pop/Rock&Roll/ Contemporary Awards or Instrumental

    1967Up, Up and Away - Other Pop/Rock&Roll/ Contemporary Awards or Instrumental

    1967Up, Up and Away - Record Of The Year

    1969Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In - Other Pop/Rock&Roll/ Contemporary Awards or Instrumental

    1969Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In - Record Of The Year

    (Marilyn McCoo, former group member, has won a total of eight Grammys.)

    If you disregarded the post-breakup Beatles Grammys (i.e. "Free As A Bird" and the "Anthology"), then the 5th Dimension would win, as their wins were all in the actual lifetime of the group.
