AFI to fete Pacino

Thesp will be honored at gala tribute on June 7

Al Pacino will receive the American Film Institute’s 35th life achievement award.

Pacino will be feted at a gala tribute in Los Angeles on June 7. Bob Gazzale will serve as exec producer and writer, as he did for AFI’s previous tributes to George Lucas, Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro and Sean Connery.

Pacino has been nominated eight times for an Academy Award for his work in films including “The Godfather,” “The Godfather: Part II,” “Serpico” and “Dog Day Afternoon.” He won the actor Oscar for 1992’s “Scent of a Woman” and an Emmy in 2004 for the HBO miniseries “Angels in America.”

“Al Pacino is an icon of American film,” said Howard Stringer, chair of AFI’s board of trustees. “His career inspires audiences and artists alike, with each new performance a master class for a generation of actors to follow.”
