Christopher Plummer left a mark on the world when he won Best Supporting Actor for “Beginners” at the Oscars held in February 2012. He was 82-years of age, which made him the most seasoned acting champ in foundation history. He has held that record for a very long time, yet it very well may be broken in 2021 — twice — if Anthony Hopkins (“The Father”) and Ellen Burstyn (“Pieces of a Woman”) bring home prizes.
Hopkins is the leader to win Best Actor as per the consolidated forecasts of thousands of Gold Derby clients as of this composition. He gets driving chances of 19/5 for his part as a maturing man who progressively battles with dementia as his little girl (Olivia Colman) attempts to think about him. Hopkins turns 83 in December, so he’ll be somewhat more than a year more seasoned than Plummer was in 2012. This would likewise give Hopkins a hotly anticipated Oscar bookend: it would be his subsequent triumph following his famous Best Actor win as Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs” right around 30 years prior.
Burstyn has been standing by considerably more for a subsequent Oscar. She has been named multiple times to date, winning Best Actress for “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” (1974), so it has been very nearly 50 years since she won. This time she could win for her supporting part in “Pieces of a Woman” as the nosy mother whose little girl is battling to adapt to an awful misfortune. She at present positions fourth in our Best Supporting Actress forecasts with 13/2 chances, however that race looks quite open right now, particularly since the audits for Glenn Close’s film, “Hillbilly Elegy,” weren’t excessively extraordinary.
Burstyn would overshadow Hopkins in the Oscar history books: she turns 88 in December, which would make her the most seasoned acting champ ever. Indeed, since the Oscars aren’t until April because of the COVID-19 pandemic, she’d likewise established another precedent as the most seasoned acting chosen one ever. Plummer holds that record as well: he was 88 years and 41 days old when he fought most as of late for “All the Money in the World” (2017).
