Lost in the sheer madness during the 94th Academy Awards on March 27, was an epic milestone in motion picture history.
The Godfather, the 1972 American crime film directed by Francis Ford Coppola celebrated its 50-year anniversary.
Sean “Diddy” Combs introduced Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino in a tribute to the Godfather Trilogy that was (in my opinion) much too brief for such a brilliant masterpiece.
During the 1973 Academy Awards, The Godfather was nominated for 10 awards, coming away with three, including Best Picture and Best Actor (Marlon Brando).
