Christopher Plummer has been nominated for a Golden Globes award for his performance in All The Money In The World, just weeks after he replaced Kevin Spacey in the role.
Spacey was cut out of Ridley Scott’s upcoming film in the wake of mounting sexual harassment claims, and director Ridley Scott and Imperative Entertainment producers decided to replace the actor in the then-finished movie.
Plummer replaced Spacey in the role of J Paul Getty, with reshoots of key scenes being shot immediately after the announcement in order for the film to keep the film’s December 22 US release date. T
The decision, which was fully supported by Sony Pictures, arrived just one day after the studio and Tristar pulled the film from the AFI Festival’s prestigious closing spot.
The nomination for Plummer at the 2018 Golden Globes, chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, was one of only a few surprises for the ceremony which honours film and TV.
Get Out received two nominations, for Daniel Kaluuya in Best Actor in a Drama, and for Best Film – Comedy/Musical, while Dunkirk, a film which had began to drop out of awards talk after a biug summer release received two nods for Best Director for Christopher Nolan and Best Film – Drama.
