2012 Oscar Nominees
And the nominees are...
Comedic actor Jonah Hill took on his first dramatic role in Moneyball last year, and now he’s a first-time Oscar nominee. What a stroke of luck and talent!

While he may be on top of the world now, what does his future have in store? In a recent interview with the LA Times, Jonah unveiled his future dramatic plans, saying:

“To have this kind of recognition -– it means I should do more dramas. I don’t know if there could be a bigger sign.”

To gear up for the Oscars, Celebuzz has put together an interesting “10 Things You Didn’t Know” gallery for the Superbad star. Peruse the gallery and let us know in the comments if you think Jonah can nab his first Oscar trophy.

Jonah also recently sat down with Oprah on her Oscar special to talk about his nomination, and what it feels like for an actor to get industry recognition. According to the Huffington Post, he says that accolades are not an inspiration that guides his performance, saying:

“You don’t really think about it, because you don’t want to get your head in that space of being disappointed or happy if it does or doesn’t work out.”

As did most Oscar nominees, Jonah joined Brad Pitt and George Clooney at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon. Check out those photos:
