Nominee reaction: Jonah Hill

Supporting actor, 'Moneyball'

For Jonah Hill, the biggest reward of “Moneyball” was simply getting the chance to do the work, given his background as a comedy star.

“Getting into a Bennett Miller film written by Aaron Sorkin and starring Brad Pitt — to me that was me winning the lottery, and the nomination is just a nice touch,” said Hill. “It is so tough as a comedic actor for anybody to see you as anything else but that. I really want to be perceived as a drama actor as well. I hope this film and nomination helps that in the future.”
