The Golden Globes nominations were announced Monday, and among the surprise shut outs and front runners, Christopher Plummer’s nomination is gaining attention.
The actor quickly replaced Kevin Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty in the Ridley Scott film “All the Money in the World.” Having reshot Spacey’s parts in the film in the span of some weeks, Plummer has been nominated for best supporting actor.
The decision by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which holds the award show, could be the fastest turnaround from performance to nomination, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Plummer replaced Spacey in the movie, which also stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg, after Spacey faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct and was cut from the film. The mystery-crime film follows the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III.
Twitter reaction to the nomination was mixed.
EW.com reported that Plummer’s nomination indicates that the final cut of the film was done just in time for the Dec. 4 deadline to be screened by the HFPA before nominations were made.
In addition to Plummer’s nom, “All the Money in the World” has two other nominations, including best supporting actress for Williams and best director for Scott.
The public can view the movie Dec. 25.
