Robert De Niro is probably one of the greatest screen actors to come out of his generation. With a career spanning more than four decades, he has established himself as one of the most revered figures in the American film industry. De Niro’s first major film roles were in the sports drama ‘Bang the Drum Slowly’ and Scorsese’s crime film ‘Mean Streets’, both released in 1973. He was cast as the young Vito Corleone in the 1974 film ‘The Godfather Part II’, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He subsequently earned Academy Award nominations for the psychological thrillers ‘Taxi Driver’ and ‘Cape Fear’, both directed by Scorsese.
He continued to receive additional nominations for Michael Cimino’s Vietnam war drama ‘The Deer Hunter’, Penny Marshall’s drama ‘Awakenings’ and David O. Russell’s romantic comedy-drama ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. His portrayal of gangster Jimmy Conway in Scorsese’s crime film ‘Goodfellas’, and his role as Rupert Pupkin in the black comedy film ‘The King of Comedy’, earned him BAFTA Award nominations. He has had a longtime collaboration with director Martin Scorsese which has produced a large variety of work. His portrayal of Jake LaMotta in the 1980 film ‘Raging Bull’ earned him the Academy Award for Best Actor.
De Niro has earned four nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his work in the musical drama ‘New York, New York’, the action comedy ‘Midnight Run’, the gangster comedy ‘Analyze This’, and the comedy ‘Meet the Parents’. Other notable performances include roles in ‘1900’, ‘Once Upon a Time in America’, ‘Brazil’, ‘The Mission’, ‘The Untouchables’, ‘Heat’ and ‘Casino’. He has directed and starred in films such as the crime drama ‘A Bronx Tale’ and the spy film ‘The Good Shepherd’.
