Which actor refused his Academy Award for his role in “The Godfather”?
Answer: In 1973, Marlon Brando declined the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance as Vito Corleone in “The Godfather”. The Native American actress Sacheen Littlefeather attended the ceremony in Brando’s place, stating that the actor “very regretfully” could not accept the award, as he was protesting Hollywood’s portrayal of Native Americans in film. Brando was the second performer to turn down a Best Actor Oscar; the first was George C. Scott, who politely declined to accept his award for Patton in 1971.
Marlon Brando, Jr. was an American actor, film director and activist. He is credited with bringing realism to film acting, and is considered one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time.
