    Welcome back to another round of Lead or Supporting. This time we have Al Pacino for his unbelievable role in The Godfather. He is in my opinion without a doubt the lead of the film and should have won his first Oscar for this monster of a performance. What do you all think?

    This one’s easy. Lead. Fantastic performance, he should’ve been nominated alongside Brando (and maybe even won over him).

    He’s absolutely the lead of the film.

    This is the most blatant category fraud ever, to the point where Pacino himself boycotted the Oscars over it.

    I don’t understand how anybody can watch this film and honestly say to themselves that he’s a supporting role.

    I can’t add anything different here. He is so obviously a Lead…especially when compared to Brando.

    It would’ve been more believeable if Brando had been supporting instead. Of course he wasn’t gonna allow that, but it’s less of a fraud. I don’t believe fraud was behind this like it is today though, just ego and contract stuff from Brando, surely.
