Al Pacino given lifetime achievement award
Currently starring in casino heist comedy Ocean's Thirteen, the man known to many as Michael Corleone was at a loss for words when he accepted the prize, watched by peers such as Andy Garcia, Robin Williams and JFK director Oliver Stone.
Other attendees at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood watched a compilation of clips from Pacino's repertoire of classic films, including Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon and Scarface.
And of his career, the star offered an insight into how he sees his varied back catalogue.
"Seeing my life in the movies, I have one question," Pacino remarked. "And that is: Why aren't I in rehab?"
Fans of the New York-born actor might want to catch up on more of his films, such as Insomnia, The Godfather, Any Given Sunday and the classic Heat.
