Golden Globe Nominations: Christopher Plummer Scores Nod for Role He Filmed Three Weeks Ago Replacing Kevin Spacey


The big news is that Christopher Plummer is nominated for a role he filmed two or three weeks ago replacing Kevin Spacey in “All the Money in the World.” Plummer was called in when Spacey was cut out because of his sex scandals. Spacey, meanwhile, was not nominated for Best Actor in a TV Drama for “House of Cards.” Plummer’s assignment was announced on November 8th. Today is December 11th. Spacey only worked on the movie for 8 days, it’s a supporting role. But what a turn of events in the life of the once and always Capt. von Trapp!

There were also several nominations for “The Greatest Showman” and its star Hugh Jackman, a movie almost no one has seen.

In TV, Best Actress in a Comedy is all newcomers or names mostly unknown to the public. The Hollywood Foreign Press skipped perennial winner Julia Louis Dreyfus for “Veep,” which is pretty weird.

The HFPA didn’t much like “The Florida Project” (not in their wheelhouse but it should come back big time for the Oscars). Ditto “Call Me By Your Name” — surprising because it was shot in Italy, a foreign country.
