Oscar Winners 2012: Christopher Plummer Claims Best Supporting Actor And Oldest Winner Ever

Editor's Note: Head to our Moneyball stream for winners in all six categories.

The 2012 Academy Awards are getting to the big ticket awards and "Moneyball" has dropped to 0-for-3. Jonah Hill was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role of Peter Brand in "Moneyball" but he lost out to Christopher Plummer for his work in "Beginners." With the win, Plummer became the oldest Academy Award winner in the 84-year history of the Oscars. The other nominees included Kenneth Branagh for "My Week with Marilyn", Nick Nolte for "Warrior" and Max von Sydow for "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close."

"Moneyball" is up for six awards Sunday evening. It lost out on awards for film editing and sound mixing. It is also nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screen Play. It is the first baseball movie since Field of Dreams to be nominated for Best Picture. "Moneyball" is the first sports movie in some time to achieve such critical acclaim. Although it has come up short in many of the award ceremonies, it really does fit the often cliched "it's an honor to just be nominated."
