Plummer: ‘I don’t think I’m the oldest Oscar winner’

The Beginners star was 82 on Sunday (26Feb12) when he picked up the Best Supporting Actor trophy at the Academy Awards – but he thinks Oscars bosses may have overlooked Charlie Chaplin’s victory in 1972.

Plummer says, “Charlie Chaplin won an Oscar and he was 83 years old, I think. I know it was an honorary Oscar, but an Oscar is an Oscar… so I think he had the edge on me.”
