Nope, Al Pacino didn’t win any Academy Awards for his work in The Godfather, Scarface, or Dog Day Afternoon. The legendary actor’s first golden statue came via 1992’s Scent of a Woman, in which he owns every single scene as blind former Army colonel. It’s a legitimate showstopper of a performance, strong enough to make the film’s overblown 157-minute running time tolerable.
