Over on Twitter, user @bestofpacino took to the site to celebrate the actor by attaching several infamous images of his roles over the years and included the “legend himself” winning an Academy Award.

Another user posted one of Pacino’s most influential scenes from The Godfather, for which he received an Oscar nomination.
