Was it really a surprise when Christopher Plummer scored an Oscar for Beginners?

Canadians have been placing their bets on the iconic Canuck actor for ages. His 60-year career has included countless roles in everything from The Sound of Music to Syriana (We're choosing to overlook The Lake House). And Plummer's wins at the Golden Globes, Indie Spirit Awards and SAG Awards earlier this year locked him in early as the clear favourite to win an Oscar.

No offence to the other nominees. We love you too, but maybe you could learn a thing or two -- or 13 -- from Plummer's career, so flip through the gallery below.
