Jonah Hill on Golden Globe Nomination: My Parents Are Crying

Who ever thought that "the chubby guy" from Superbad, and the "stoner best friend" from Knocked Up would be getting Golden Globe and SAG award nominations? Jonah Hill has reason to celebrate, as this years kind of under-dog he just nabbed a Golden Globe and a SAG Award nomination for his supporting role opposite Brad Pitt in Moneyball.

The former funny guy, who is now surprising audiences with his new dramatic roles, says "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," admits Hill.

This from the same guy who called the Kardashians "digsusting" just the other day.

Hill told People mag, "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 though he's made a name for himself with snarky comments and funny roles, he says very humbled by these nominations.

"I have been trying not to get wrapped up in all of this, in everything," says Hill.

"It is not too often you get the second lead opposite Brad Pitt in a film," says Hill, "It did feel like a momentous occasion in my life when I got the part, and it was."
