Christopher Plummer Skipped Oscars : Actor A No-Show At The Oscars Because It Was A Tribute To Julie Andrews

Christopher Plummer Skipped the Oscars Because ‘It Was a Tribute to Julie Andrews’!

”I couldn’t be there for personal reasons,” he said to PEOPLE, “and secondly I didn’t want to. It was really a tribute to Julie. It’s her movie. It’s a terrible phrase we have in England but if I had appeared there I would have looked like a spare prick at a wedding. That’s the most perfect description of how I would have looked.”

Plummer, however, watched the show from the comfort of his home. “I thought Lady GaGa sang absolutely wonderfully. She knows how to do two styles. She knows the old way and and she knows the new way and she was so faithful to the style of the story and the song,” he praised the Mother Monster. He added, “Julie looked terrific. I was thrilled it was a tribute to her and so it should be.”

The duo will reunite in Hollywood next month to kick off the TCM Classic Film Festival with the screening of their classic movie.
