Brad Pitt Celebrates Best Actor Nomination: “Pancakes for Everyone!”

Truth rating: 10


Brad Pitt is thrilled about his Best Actor nomination for this year’s Academy Awards – and also excited for two of his close buddies.

“I’m so happy for Jonah Hill, I can’t tell you,” Pitt said of his Moneyball co-star, a Best Supporting Actor nominee, during a phone call to the “Today Show” on Tuesday.

Pitt will be going head-to-head with old friend George Clooney in his own category.

Does it feel weird?

“Absolutely not,” said Pitt. “It’s more fun to have a friend there. No one does it better than George. I say give him all the trophies, and when you run out of trophies, make some new ones and give him those, too.”

Pitt calls his Best Actor nod a “great honor,” and is especially gratified considering Moneyball was “dead on the rocks just two years ago.”

His immediate celebration plans at his house on Tuesday were simple and sweet: “Pancakes for everyone!”
