Christopher Plummer Scores Golden Globe Nom Just Weeks After Replacing Kevin Spacey

The actor stepped into the role after Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct

There was talk that the film, a true-crime saga about the notorious 1973 kidnapping of J. Paul Getty's grandson, might not even be released because it starred Spacey Getty role.

The Golden Globes nominations were announced Monday, and among the surprise shut outs and front runners, Christopher Plummer's nomination is gaining attention.

According to Variety, reshooting the movie in this fashion was possible because most of the scenes involving Plummer didn't require any other main characters.

Scott received a Globe nomination for best director and Williams for best performance for an actress in a drama. He had already shot his scenes and Scott was facing a six-week deadline to insert Plummer into the film in time for its December 25 release. Williams also won a Globe in 2012, for playing Marilyn Monroe in "My Week with Marilyn".

Reviews are not yet available, however, so only time will tell if this movie lives up to expectations, which have just been heightened.

Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, Fukrey Returns was already anticipated to have a huge opening at the box office. Golmaal Again and Tumhari Sulu are two such light-hearted films which exceeded expectations and shined at the box office.

Spacey later apologized, adding "I honestly do not remember the encounter". The show, until last month, counted Louis C.K.as an active executive producer and writer until FX severed all ties with the comedian after he admitted to sexual misconduct with multiple women. Adlon had previously worked with C.K. on his FX series Louie, where she served as a writer and producer.

In addressing C.K.'s behavior, Adlon said in a brief statement: "Hi".

Gary Oldman and Daniel Day-Lewis could clinch nominations in the best drama actor category - Oldman for starring as Churchill epic Darkest Hour, and Day-Lewis for his role in historical drama Phantom Thread.

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.

House of Cards, from which Spacey was sacked, also was shut out.
