A deserving Christopher Plummer took out the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor last night for his role in Beginners. It was his first Oscar and at 82 years old, he now holds the record as the oldest actor to win an Academy Award.
Plummer’s career spans almost 60 years. What a sweet and touching moment to see someone so dedicated to their craft, who apparently ‘came out of the womb’ planning his thank you speech, finally receive such recognition and honour.
It is a firm reminder that age is no barrier; find what you love and keep doing it. Congratulations Christopher Plummer!
