Tomorrow night is the 84th annual Academy Awards, and Canadian acting legend Christopher Plummer is nominated for an Oscar in the Actor in a Supporting Role category for his work in 'Beginners'. He was honoured with a Golden Globe for the performance in January.

Christopher sat down with George last year to talk about his long career, the more than 100 films he's acted in, being proud of his daughter Amanda, continuing to cringe about 'The Sound of Music', contemplating his own mortality, being upstaged by William Shatner - and Peter O'Toole's liver.
