Jonah Hill - Jonah Hill 'Overwhelmed' By Nomination News

Jonah Hill says being nominated for Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and Golden Globe awards is like "getting married or having a kid".

The 27-year-old star is up for Best Supporting Actor prizes at both ceremonies for his role in 'Moneyball' and he is "shocked" to have been shortlisted for the accolades, though he is trying not to get carried away and start speculating as to whether it will lead to recognition at the Oscars.

He told People: "I have been trying not to get wrapped up in all of this, in everything.

"Any expectation of getting a SAG nomination or an Oscar nomination are sort of absurd expectations to put on yourself. So the fact that I actually got this nomination was so overwhelmingly moving and thrilling and surreal. I am really just kind of shocked.

"The phone calls and emails I have gotten today are unlike any I have ever experienced. I feel like I got married or had a kid or something. I have never had anything like this happen to me before. My parents were actually crying."

Even before he was nominated for the awards, Jonah admitted being cast in the movie opposite Brad Pitt was a "momentous occasion".

He said: "It is not too often you get the second lead opposite Brad Pitt in a film.

"It did feel like a momentous occasion in my life when I got the part, and it was."
