The picture you have here is not of Al Pacino from "The Godfather, Part II" but rather the third one. (Not a big deal, but since this is all about accuracy, why not ensure that the photos are correct too?)

What about On The Waterfront? That also had 5 acting nomations.

Best Actor: Marlon Brando (won)

Best Supporting Actor: Lee J. Cobb

Best Supporting Actor: Karl Malden

Best Supporting Actor: Rod Steiger

Best Supporting Actress: Eva Marie Saint (won)

Tx for the reminder, Benito. I just added "Peyton Place" to the final notation

somebody forgot about Peyton Place.
