oscars_4_Andy Garcia

Credit Brian De Palma's crime-drama The Untouchables for bringing Andy García a major break. The film, which centers on the efforts to bring gang leader Al Capone to justice during the Prohibition era, helped the Cuban-born actor get noticed and ultimately land the role of Vincent Mancini, the illegitimate son of Sonny Corleone, in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather Part III. García’s performance earned him a Best Supporting Actor nomination. He was the only actor in the film to earn Academy Award recognition, including Al Pacino, who’d earned Oscar nods in the previous two Godfather films.
