  • Golden Globe Awards

Happy Birthday, Mr. Coppola!

"If I do have some period in which I know some power or money, I will watch out that it does not corrupt me", Francis Ford Coppola told us in December of 1990, when the last installment on his extraordinary Godfather trilogy was being released. Nominated seven times for Golden Globes in the writer and director categories - for The Godfather Part II, The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, The Cotton Club and The Godfather Part III - Coppola won three times: in 1973, for best director and best screenplay, for The Godfather.
