"I’m absolutely delighted that Helen Mirren and I have both been nominated by the Academy for portraying that stormy couple, The Tolstoy’s. As I’ve just turned 80, there’s no way it will go to my head."
Christopher Plummer is older and wiser when it comes to accepting his Academy Award nomination for playing Leo Tolstoy in The Last Station.
The 82nd annual Academy Awards, to be co-hosted by Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, take place Sunday, March 7, and will air live on ABC starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
