One of the most iconic actors of his generation, Al Pacino is surprisingly just a one-time Oscar winner. He won his only Academy Award for his lead performance in Martin Brest's Scent of a Woman, and the clip below is arguably his signature scene in the film. It is a remarkably commanding performance and the sequence below shows just how mesmerizing Pacino can be when he's at his best. He has, like many great actors, fallen off the map as he's gotten older, but that doesn't mean we can't take time to remember some of his memorable accomplishments.

Love Al Pacino in this film. Still upset that Robert Downey, Jr. didn't win for Chaplin, but Pacino was very much overdue. Great performance. One of the best

@ Julian Stark: To be honest, I have not seen Chaplin, but I think it was, like you mentioned, an overdue win for Pacino. Regardless of which performance is his career's best, he had to win for something at some point.
