Robert Duvall: Best Actor, 1983:

Tender Mercies (Drama – PG)

Robert Duvall won his Best Actor Oscar for his performance as a down-and-out country singer struggling for a comeback who finds the strength to live when he meets a good-natured widow (Tess Harper).

About Robert Duvall (1931 – )

Robert Duvall, lean and balding, has been delivering fascinating character portraits since his debut in 1962 in To Kill A Mockingbird. He first gained great fame as the family lawyer in The Godfather. He received a Best Actor Oscar for his performance in Tender Mercies. Duvall received another Oscar nomination for his portrait of a fiery minister in The Apostle, a film he directed and financed.

Off-screen Robert Duvall loves to dance, particularly the tango.

Duvall's solid, assured performance in The Rain People (1969) marked the beginning of a relationship with director Francis Ford Coppola, for whom he played cool Mafia mouthpiece Tom Hagen in both The Godfather (1972) earning an Oscar nomination, and The Godfather, Part II (1974), and a crazed colonel in Apocalypse Now (1979), getting another Oscar nomination.

Many critics felt that Duvall's finest part was that of a washed-up country singer in Tender Mercies (1983, for which he wrote and performed his own songs); members of the Motion Picture Academy agreed, and finally voted him a Best Actor Oscar for his performance.
