Pacino received an Oscar nomination as Big Boy Caprice in the box office hit Dick Tracy followed by his return to his most famous role as Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part III. He would finally later win an Oscar, for Best Actor, for his portrayal of the depressed, irascible, retired and blind Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade in Martin Brest's Scent of a Woman (1992). That same year, he was also up for the supporting award for his role in Glengarry Glen Ross, making Pacino the first male actor ever to receive two acting nominations for two different movies in the same year, and the first actor of either gender to achieve that feat and then win for the lead role. (Jamie Foxx did the same in 2005.) Pacino has since turned in acclaimed performances in such crime thrillers as Carlito's Way, Heat, and Insomnia, the crime docudrama Donnie Brasco, the multi-Oscar nominated The Insider, the supernatural drama The Devil's Advocate, and others.

In 1995, Pacino starred in Michael Mann's Heat, in which he and fellow film icon Robert De Niro appeared on screen together for the first time (though both Pacino and De Niro starred in The Godfather Part II, they didn't share any scenes). The duo drew much attention from fans as both actors have generally been compared throughout their careers.

Pacino has not received another nomination from the Academy since Scent of a Woman, but has won two Golden Globes since the turn of the 21st century, the first being the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion picture, and the second for his role in the highly praised HBO miniseries Angels in America.

Pacino has turned down a number of key roles in his career, including that of Han Solo in Star Wars, Captain Willard in Apocalypse Now, Richard Sherman in a remake of The Seven Year Itch (which was never filmed) and Edward Lewis in Pretty Woman. In 1996, Pacino was set to play General Manuel Noriega in a major biographical motion picture when director Oliver Stone pulled the plug on production to focus on the movie Nixon. Later on, he recieved his own star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
