Al Pacino's Acting Credentials: Awards and Highlights of Storied Career

By    |   Wednesday, 15 Apr 2015 08:05 PM

Al Pacino has garnered numerous awards and nominations during his long and storied career, including one Oscar, five Golden Globes, and two Prime-Time Emmy awards.

It was his role as the bitter and blinded Lt. Col. Frank Slade in “Scent of a Woman” that got Al Pacino his long-awaited Best Actor Oscar in 1993.

Before that, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated him seven times for Oscars: for Supporting Actor in 1973 (“The Godfather”), 1991 (“Dick Tracy”), and 1993 (“Glengarry Glen Ross”) and for Best Actor in 1974 (“Serpico”), 1975 (“The Godfather: Part II”), 1976 (“Dog Day Afternoon”), and 1980 (“... And Justice for All”).

In his acceptance speech
for “Scent of a Woman,” Pacino mentioned among the traditional thank-yous a “little girl” from the Bronx who said to him: “I had encouraged her, and that's not necessarily by my work but just by the fact that we came from the same place. And I just can't forget that girl, and I can't forget the kids out there who may be thinking tonight that if he can do it, I can do it.”

The Golden Globe awards were more fruitful ground for Pacino, with five wins: The Cecil B. DeMille Award in 2001; Best Actor awards in 1974 (“Serpico”), 1993 (“Scent of a Woman”), 2004 (“Angels in America”), 2011 (“You Don’t Know Jack”), and 11 nominations for either Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor.

Some of Pacino’s Golden Globe memorabilia, which were given to his friend, producer Martin Bregman, went up for auction in February 2015, according to The Lowell Sun. His “Serpico” Golden Globe brought in $61,620, according to Goldin Auctions. Sold in the same auction was Pacino’s 1969 Tony Award for “Does A Tiger Wear A Necktie?”

On television, Pacino’s skill earned him two Prime-Time Emmy awards for “Angels in America” and “You Don’t Know Jack,” and a nomination for “Phil Spector.”

The actor also received dozens and dozens of local, national, and international awards and, yes, a few Razzies. There’s even a Grammy nomination he shared with 20 other actors, a list of diverse talents from Ossie Davis and Amy Irving to Natasha Richardson and Patrick Stewart, for the spoken-word album “The Complete Shakespeare Sonnets” in 2001.
