Anne Thompson talks more about James McAvoy's awards campaign:
Meanwhile James McAvoy is getting a campaign for best actor in The Last Station, even though Christopher Plummer plays a volcanic Leo Tolstoy opposite likely best actress nominee Helen Mirren. That’s because Plummer’s going to push for supporting for The Last Station, saving best actor for Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. (That movie will likely do better on the awards front with its visual elements, from cinematography and production design to costumes and visual effects.)
