Nominated for supporting actor:
"At 70, I'm moved, you could say -- I don't know if you'd say excited. That's for young people. Because, you know, you've had experience with these emotions by 70. It's not as new and fresh. Some younger people get it, and almost pass out -- screaming and jumping up and down. It's not my style."
Asked whether the nomination was a surprise, he said, "it was tough this year -- it's always hard to predict. I'm a two-time loser. You just can't predict it. I can't go by 'third time's a charm.' As age enters in, Plummer's got it. It's sentiment there. But to draw distinctions about who's the best, you can't really distinguish."
