Brad Pitt had help with his umbrella yesterday at the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA. He was there for a very early morning meeting around the time that he found out about his Oscar nomination in the best actor category for his role in Moneyball! There was more great news in store for Brad because two of his films, Moneyball and The Tree of Life, are up for best picture as well. This means we have yet another Brad and Angelina red-carpet sighting to look forward to when they attend the ceremony on Feb. 26.
In response to the great news from the Academy, Brad said, "This is an extraordinary honor. I am dizzy with joy . . . and caffeine. Considering both films, Moneyball and The Tree of Life, nearly didn’t make it to the screen, this is especially sweet . . . My congratulations to all the nominees — pancakes for everyone."
