Christopher Plummer won the SAG Award for male actor in a supporting role for his turn as a man coming out about his homosexuality near the end of his life in “Beginners.”

The 82-year-old Canadian-born Plummer, who starred as Capt. Von Trapp in the 1965 best picture winner “The Sound of Music,” just earned his second supporting actor Oscar nomination for his turn as Hal Fields, a widower dying of cancer.

He's already won the Golden Globe, the Critics' Choice Movie Award and the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn., the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures and several other critics’ honors. Plummer is also in contention for BAFTA and Independent Spirit awards.

The 18th Screen Actors Guild Awards were handed out at the Shrine Exposition Hall in Los Angeles and broadcast on TNT and TBS. The Oscars will be presented on Feb. 26.
