Veteran actor Christopher Plummer has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, just weeks after he was drafted in to replace Kevin Spacey.
This cannot be overstated: just over four weeks ago, Plummer was NOT going to be in the film at all. Now, he’s in with a shot of taking home a statue for what has to be one of the best unplanned performances of all time.
Director Scott has seemingly managed to get Plummer’s scenes re-shot and get a completed version of the film to the Hollywood Foreign Press voters in time to be considered.

- Kevin Spacey cut from Ridley Scott’s new film just weeks before release
- Christopher Plummer has already replaced Kevin Spacey in the All the Money in the World trailer
Twitter was just as shocked as we are:
Christopher Plummer nominated for Golden Globe for role he shot a month ago. Some kind of record?

If Christopher Plummer can step in to replace a human trash bag, film his part in two weeks AND earn a Golden Globe nomination for it, then you can do anything

Biggest surprise story out of the #GoldenGlobes nods: ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD landing multiple nods. With the nod for Christopher Plummer, it’s gotta be the first time an actor was nominated for a role he landed & performed in span of one month pic.twitter.com/6JG2LM1nG7

In early November, it was announced that Plummer would be taking over from Kevin Spacey in the film, just six weeks before its planned release date, after Star Trek Discovery’s Anthony Rapp and eight current and former members of the House of Cards cast and crew came forward to accuse Spacey of sexually inappropriate behaviour.
Check out the re-cut trailer with Plummer below.
All the Money in the World will be released in UK cinemas on 5th January 2018.
