Jared Leto celebrates his Oscar nomination with vegan pancakes

17 January 2014 / 2 years 9 months ago

Jared Leto is celebrating his Oscar nomination by enjoying a tasty breakfast of vegan pancakes. The actor intends to "go back to bed" first, however, as the nominations were announced so early in the morning.

The 42-year-old star is over the moon at receiving a Best Supporting Actor nod for his portrayal of HIV positive transsexual Rayon in 'Dallas Buyers Club', however, his somewhat unremarkable plans to celebrate include going back to bed because the nominations - which were revealed at 5:38am Californian time today (16.01.14) - were announced so early in the morning.

The newly-minted Oscar nominee quipped to The Hollywood Reporter: "I'm going back to bed and then wake up and make vegan pancakes.

"I thought I didn't get the nomination because I woke up and [mistakenly] thought it was getting light outside. But then I got a knock on the door from Emma Ludbrook, who produced [documentary film] Artifact with me."

Jared, who won a Golden Globe award for his performance on Sunday (12.01.14), will be in good company at the Oscars as his co-star Matthew McConaughey is up for Best Actor for his portrayal of AIDS victim Ron Woodroof.

Elsewhere, 'The Wolf of Wall Street' star Jonah Hill, 30, has earned his second Academy Awards nomination for Best Supporting Actor and he admits he is in "complete and total shock".

He said: "I honestly was not expecting this, on a level you can't even imagine. Again, I'm clearly in shock. I didn't have a plan for celebrating today because I truly did not expect any of this!"

British filmmaker Steve McQueen is also honoured to receive nine nominations for his riveting slavery drama '12 Years a Slave', including Best Picture and Best Actor for leading man Chiwetel Ejiofor.

He enthused: "I'm extraordinarily happy for all the cast and crew of our '12 Years a Slave' family. This has been an amazing ride and to receive nine nominations from the Academy is testament to all of the hard work."
