Oscars 2012: Christopher Plummer Grabs Best Supporting Actor, Becomes the Oldest Winner
Christopher Plummer won his first-ever Oscar trophy at the 84th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night, February 26. The movie veteran took home Best Supporting Actor title through his role as Ewan McGregor's on-screen father in "Beginners".
At the age of 82, Plummer became the oldest actor to ever win an Academy Award and he received a standing ovation from the crowd. "You're only two years older than me, darling," he jokingly said to his Oscar statuette. "Where have you been all my life?"
Plummer won over Kenneth Branagh ("My Week with Marilyn"), Jonah Hill ("Moneyball"), Nick Nolte ("Warrior"), and Max von Sydow ("Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"). He accepted the prize from Melissa Leo.
Another winner at the Oscars was Ludovic Bource who won Best Original Score through his work in "The Artist". Best Original Song, meanwhile, went to "Man or Muppet" from "The Muppets".
