As featured at ABC Network on Sunday, February 26, 2012, Christopher Plummer was among the 2012 Oscars Awards winners, which was held at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, California.

Apparently, Plummer, 82, beat fellow nominees Kenneth Branagh of “My Week With Marilyn,” Nick Nolte of “Warrior,” Max von Sydow of “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” and Jonah Hill of “Moneyball.”

“You’re only two years older than me, darling. Where have you been all of my life?” Christopher Plummer said on his speech, talking to his first ever Oscar award, who later thanked his wife Elaine and his daughter Amanda.

“When I first emerged from my mother’s womb, I was already rehearsing my Academy thank you speech, but it was so long ago, mercifully for you, I’ve forgotten it.” Plummer added, who was nominated for an Oscar Best Supporting Actor for the 2009 film “The Last Station.”

Incidentally, Plummer also won in the same category in the recent 2012 Golden Globes, 2012 Critics Choice Movie Awards (CCMA), 2012 SAG Awards and the 2012 BAFTA Awards.

Christopher Plummer made his film debut in “Stage Struck” back in 1957, and made notable performances in other films such as “The Man Who Would Be King” and “The Sound of Music” opposite Julia Andrews.
