American actor James Edmund Caan was nominated for a number of honors, including four Golden Globes, an Emmy, and an Oscar. In 1978, Caan received a movie star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.



He began his career with small parts in Howard Hawks’ El Dorado (1966), Robert Altman’s Countdown (1967), and Francis Ford Coppola’s The Rain People (1969), but it was his portrayal of Sonny Corleone in The Godfather (1972), for which he received nominations for both the Academy Award and the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, that brought him to national attention.
