The Last Station
A handful of nice moments — most of them from McAvoy, who isn't nominated — but one review I read called the movie an acting showcase more than a plot, and I'd have to agree. It's a little draggy, and many of the characters seem written without regard for the era.
Mirren is good, as is Plummer, but it's average work from each of them, and neither of them is going to win.
