Barring a major upset, Christopher Plummer will win his first Academy Award in February for his performance in 'Beginners.' The 82-year-old has appeared in everything from 'The Sound of Music' to the just-released 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' but in his six decades of acting work, Plummer has only been nominated for an Oscar once before: 2009's 'The Last Station,' where he played Tolstoy. Plummer has a laid-back attitude about awards season in general -- "I don't take it seriously at all," he told Movieline -- but there was one time when he felt the politics of the Oscars might have gone a bit too far.
