After the bold decision to remove and replace a lead role, Ridley Scott’s true crime-thriller “All the Money in the World” has earned 3 Golden Globe nominations:
Best Director – Motion Picture: Ridley Scott
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama: Michelle Williams
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture: Christopher Plummer
Earlier this year, Charlie Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty in November, after Kevin was removed from the film, leaving Ridley, the cast and crew to reshoot all of his scenes.
“Though for Scott and company, it was obviously more complicated than simply deleting a credit; it was a herculean (and likely quite costly) effort,” says Variety. “…One that only a seasoned and confident filmmaker could have imagined, let alone managed.”
A statement from Ridley:
I am thrilled and grateful to the HFPA for recognizing ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD. I am especially proud that the beautiful performances of Michelle and Chris were celebrated today.
Despite the unexpected challenges we encountered after shooting was completed, we were determined that audiences around the world would be able to see our film. Hundreds of people associated with the project put their hearts and souls into every frame to ensure that could happen.
So the fact that we have received these wonderful acknowledgements this morning is especially gratifying.
Thank you HFPA.
All the Money in the World premieres in theaters this Christmas.
