Thirty-one year-old actor Robert De Niro wins the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his role as young Vito Corleone in The Godfather II. He was nominated alongside two co-stars from the same movie, Michael V. Gazzo and Lee Strasberg. Busy filming Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1900 in Italy, he does not attend the Oscars ceremony, and director Francis Ford Coppola accepts the award on his behalf.

Transiting Saturn is conjunct De Niro’s natal Ascendant in Cancer, indicating his visible absence from a situation where he is the center of attention. Transiting Mars in Aquarius is opposite the natal Sun in Leo, square transiting Venus and natal Mars in Taurus, signifying advancement against rivals.
