All the awards hoopla has taken its toll on Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Christopher Plummer. The actor is SAG Award nominated for his role in "Beginners," as a father who comes out as gay late in his life -- but all the time shuffling down the various red carpets of the awards season means less time on the set.

"I'm thrilled and I'm exhausted," the 82-year-old actor said Sunday before the show. "I'd rather be working. Working is so much easier than the awards."

But Plummer isn't complaining. All the recognition for the role has translated into a lot of offers for the veteran actor -- "offers of quality."

"I've never worked so much in my life ... it's keeping me extremely young."
