3 of 8: Jonah Hill was nominated for a 2012 SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in the film 'Moneyball.' His co-star, Brad Pitt, also received an acting nod.

'I am incredibly moved and so grateful to my fellow actors for recognizing my role in 'Moneyball' with this nomination. I feel so lucky to be an actor today as I do every day,' Hill said in a statement. 'I owe a huge thanks and much credit to our entire cast and crew, our writers, and especially to our fearless leader and director Bennett Miller and to Brad Pitt, the most generous onscreen partner anyone could hope for. Having my work honored today by my peers pushes me to work even harder.'

'Moneyball' is based on a true story. Pitt plays Billy Beane, general manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, who utilizes a new method of scouting players that mostly involves analyzing game statistics. Hill portrays his assistant, Peter Brand, while Philip Seymour Hoffman plays the team's manager, Art Howe.
