About a month after it was announced that Christopher Plummer would replace Kevin Spacey in the upcoming film, “All the Money in the World,” the 87-year-old acting legend earned a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor.

The announcement came Monday morning, along with the rest of the nods, just two weeks after the first footage of Plummer in the film hit the web.

In the brand new trailer from Sony Pictures Entertainment, Plummer, who plays J. Paul Getty, is seen alongside Mark Wahlberg and other stars in the thriller that focuses on the story of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III.

Plummer replaced Spacey, who had already filmed his scenes, in early November following allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against the former “House of Cards” star, 58.

Actor Anthony Rapp was the first to speak out and accuse Spacey of trying to seduce him while he was just 14 years old and attending a party back in 1986. Rapp, who said he never reported Spacey, said the ongoing sexual harassment scandal with Harvey Weinstein encouraged him to come forward.

Spacey later apologized, adding “I honestly do not remember the encounter … But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”

Others would speak out against Spacey in the weeks following Rapp’s accusations. Netflix, the streaming service behind “House of Cards,” suspended and then cut ties with Spacey, as well.

Plummer spoke to Entertainment Tonight last month about taking over for Spacey in the Oscar-buzzy movie, which is set to be released on Christmas. There had been obvious questions about how this timetable could be kept while pulling an actor completely out of the movie only to put another into scenes already shot.

“It isn’t replacing. In a funny way it’s starting all over again because it’s going to be different, naturally,” he said.
