Christopher Plummer has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in “All The Money In The World.”
Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey’s role after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against the latter actor.
Actor in a Supporting Role in a Film:
Willem Dafoe, “The Florida Project”
Armie Hammer, “Call Me by Your Name”
Richard Jenkins, “The Shape of Water”
Christopher Plummer, “All the Money in the World”
Sam Rockwell, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”https://t.co/kxcmGqxrXQ

The decision to give Plummer a nod is an interesting one, seeing as “All The Money In The World” hasn’t been released yet. It’s still slotted to hit theaters December 18th but required director Ridley Scott and his two main actors – Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg – to reshoot several scenes last month.
Plummer plays J. Paul Getty, an oil tycoon who refuses to pay his grandson’s ransom after he is kidnapped.
Since the decision to nominate Plummer for a role he secured last month is pretty unorthodox, Twitter erupted (as it is so prone to doing).

We’ll have to wait until the movie comes out to find out if his performance lives up to the hype.
