Henry Fonda received many awards and accolades during his long career. He got his first taste of acting at the Omaha Community Playhouse, an amateur theatre group directed by Dorothy Brando, mother of Marlon. He acted on Broadway from 1926 to 1934, before making his film debut in “The Farmer Takes a Wife” in 1935.

In 1941, Fonda was nominated for an Oscar for the role of Tom Joad in “The Grapes of Wrath,” and although he received many awards over the years, he didn’t win an Oscar until 1982, for “On Golden Pond.”

His role as Norman Thayer in “On Golden Pond” was his last movie, made one year before he died in 1982 at age 76. He was also nominated for an Oscar in 1958 for his work in “12 Angry Men.”

Other Henry Fonda awards include Golden Globes; he was nominated in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama category for “12 Angry Men” in 1958. “On Golden Pond” turned out to be golden for Fonda, who won the Golden Globe award for that movie in 1982.

He won the Cecil B. DeMille Award in 1980.

The prolific actor, who earned a star on the Walk of Fame in 1960, took home many other awards, including a marquee from American Movie Awards in 1982 for “On Golden Pond.” That movie netted him other awards from the National Board of Review, for Best Actor, the Karlovy Vary International Award, and a second-place win from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award.

In addition to making movies on the big screen and acting on Broadway, Fonda made many movies for TV, including “Clarence Darrow.” He was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for the movie in 1975. Other Emmy nominations were for “The Red Pony” in 1973 and “Gideon’s Trumpet” in 1980.
