Saying he was "dizzy with joy … and caffeine," Brad Pitt
had plenty to celebrate early Tuesday morning after the Oscar nominations
were announced in Beverly Hills.
Not only did he receive a nod for Best Actor in Moneyball
, but that film, along with his movie Tree of Life
, were both nominated for Best Picture.
But the star, 48, isn't solely about celebrating himself.
"I am especially over the moon for Jonah [Hill] (and the other Moneyballers acknowledged today)," Pitt said in a statement. "Considering both films … nearly didn't make it to the screen, this is especially sweet."
Pitt's plan to honor his fellow nominees this very special morning? "Pancakes for everyone."
